I saw the same "sniper" special on military channel last night. Some village where a sniper team was about to be over run. Didn't look like they were being attacked by 100-150 BGs but it is a short video.
The point was one sniper can push the enemies comfort zone back quite a ways. They are still killing each other wholesale over in Iraq and I am sooooo glad our combat troops are out. Now, if we can get out of the Afgan debacle.
I watched an HBO special on the Marines in Marjaveh sp - and the troops were so frustrated - we are fighting, dying and spending a fortune but the native tribes could care less or still hate us.
Their govt makes Obama's admin look honest in comparison.
