An assault by suicide bombers and gunmen against a Nato base in southern Afghanistan has killed one service member and two civilians, sources say.

3 for 9 sounds fair.
It should be 1 soldier = 1 village.
These scumbags would stop this BS real quick.
It is totally unacceptable for one American to die for those sick ba$tards.
I’ve been duly chastened and corrected ... oorah
All these people understand is brutality. They ambush and kill a soldier, I say kill their sons, daughters, wives and level the villages to the ground.
Counter attacks should always be 1000 times worse. Don’t knock your enemy down, make it so he can never hurt you again.
I know it sounds pretty sick, but you honestly think after once this happens their sons and wives will let them strap that bomb on their chest to go kill Americans? Live and let live, until someone kills you. Then the gloves are off.
