They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Afghanistan: US boneheads kill three Brits

Three British soldiers have been killed and two others wounded by a bomb dropped by a US plane, the British Defence Ministry said Friday.

The ministry said the incident happened Thursday in the southern province of Helmand. The US plane had apparently dropped a bomb meant for Taliban fighters, but struck the British soldiers instead.

With the latest casualties, it brought to 76 the number of British soldiers killed so far in Afghanistan. Link
