Chopper crash kills 31 U.S. troops, 7 Afghans

A sad day indeed.

An Unfortunate incident in a fire fight takes the lives of 31 American troops, Lets hope that they can finish off the bastard Islamic rejects that fester in Afghanistan.

The Los Angeles Times
Thirty-one American troops and seven Afghans were killed in the overnight downing of a NATO helicopter, President Hamid Karzai's office said Saturday. The Taliban claimed to have shot down the craft.

The deaths are thought to represent the largest loss of military lives in a single incident in the course of the nearly 10-year-old war.

NATO's International Security Assistance Force, or ISAF, confirmed in a terse statement that a crash had occurred and acknowledged "insurgent activity" in the area at the time. A Western military official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the Chinook helicopter had apparently been brought down by a rocket-propelled grenade.
