    British sniper in Afghanistan kills six Taliban with one bullet
    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/wor...nistan-kills-six-Taliban-with-one-bullet.html

    I meant that in a awestruck impressed kind of way.

    Then I see the sub-headline:
    "Lance Corporal in the Coldstream Guards hit trigger switch of suicide bomber whose device then exploded, Telegraph learns"

    And thought - big deal. A dying soldier falls on a plunger and kills an entire supply train (Bridge on River Kwai)

    I am sure the sniper "meant to do that"


    In any case, to our British friends, BZ.

    Wasn't some thing where he was just sitting up there all day waiting for 3 of them to line up and then got lucky. Bummer... Oh well, still a good story though!

    Good thing he was not in the US forces. If he were he would be raked over the coals with congressional inquiries and in the press by now for the collateral damage and the inadvertent killing of the poor, and innocent Afghans who happened to just be standing at the wrong place at the wrong time.

    But I do love a good story with a happy ending.
