More of David Petraeus’ COIN win their hearts and minds nonsense has taken the lives of four French soldiers. Reuters has the story:
(Reuters) – A suicide bomber dressed in a burqa blew himself up near a French patrol in Afghanistanon Saturday, killing four soldiers and wounding five as the Taliban step up a spring offensive.
The attack – one of the deadliest on the French contingent in months – occurred in the mountainous Kapisa province in the east of the country, an area mainly patrolled by a French force under NATO command.
“It was an unfortunate incident. There was a patrol of coalition soldiers in a small bazaar and they were attacked by a suicide bomber wearing a burqa,” Afghan Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi told Reuters…
Indeed. It’s much more than an unfortunate incident. It’s more sacrificing of precious lives from the civilized world to the Hellhole wherein the Muslim inhabitants will never amend their beliefs or reconcile with Western Civilization.
