    Taliban Attack British and US Base: Taliban Says After Prince Harry......

    At least two US Marines were killed in the strike on the base in Helmand province, which houses American and British troops among others.

    Major Adam Wojack, a spokesman for International Security Assistance Force in Kabul, confirmed British forces had been involved in repelling the attack, alongside American troops.


    He said 18 attackers were killed and another one was wounded and being given medical treatment.

    A number of aircraft, hangars and other buildings at the base were hit and badly damaged by insurgent fire.

    A Taliban spokesman said the attack was in revenge for an amateur film that mocked Islam, and because Prince Harry was known to be at the base.

    The fighting broke out after protests swept the Middle East over an amateur film that mocked Islam. Western embassies in Libya, Egypt and Sudan were among those that were raided and looted.....snip~

    The film excuse is such a crock! The Taliban has been threatening to either kidnap or kill Prince Harry prior to "film mania".

    quite the opposite. Go build a FOB in the middle of bad guy land, arm it to the hilt, put air on station, and then have Prince Harry take command. Perhaps a good IO campaign mocking the Taliban for being too cowardly to come and try to make good on their threat would be a good addition.

    They are protesting or rioting at US consulates and embassies all over the world.. without the Taliban or concerns about Prince Harry.

    I don't think we can minimize the vulgarity of the film. We also have the right to be very offended at a hateful propaganda film that hurts the US and Americans abroad.

    While this Copt immigrant ... or is he a foreign national... has the right of free speech, we have the right to loudly condemn his film.

    Not to mention, we put 18 bad guys on ice. Sounds like a good day for the home team.

    They are Protesting because their Religious Leaders have incited them to violence. Most are using this as an excuse for their behaviour. Moreover.....we/you have the Right to Loudly Condemn his film.

    Ever hear of a Blow Horn? There is no Righteous Ground to Stand upon if attacking others who are innocent.
