        Judging by the photograph, the helicopter was shot down from a grenade launcher, moreover, by friendly Afghan forces

        But the words


        It is noted that the catastrophe is not the result of any "hostile activity."

      I really liked the expression from one of the NATO warriors, saying that this was not a terrorist attack. What nafig attack? You have a war going on!

    I read somewhere that the main percentage of losses in NATO relates to non-combat. It comes to the ridiculous thing that they climb onto the truck’s kung and they touch the wires with a rifle, and so on.

      Operation Cottage is an operation by the US Army to liberate Kyska Island from Japanese forces during the Pacific campaign during World War II. Passed from 15 to 24 on August 1943 of the year.
      In the early morning of August 15, the first group of American troops landed on the west coast of the island, on August 16 Canadians landed a little north

      However, there was no resistance, the only combat losses of the paratroopers were casualties from friendly fire.

      It turned out that the Japanese command, realizing the impossibility of defending a practically isolated island, decided to evacuate the garrison. July 28, two weeks before the Americans land

      During the survey of the island (including many underground tunnels), Americans lost 31 people and about 50 were injured, mainly from friendly fire; 130 soldiers were injured by the trench foot [1]. In addition, when the destroyer Abner Reed was destroyed in a Japanese mine, 71 sailors were killed and 47 sailors were injured [1]
      . They fought for a week with themselves on an empty island!)
      it's all from Wiki, in other sources I read even cooler numbers
      ... but probably this is less or less normal, then that in any large operations non-combat losses and friendly fire are inevitable, plus the statistics "correct" also forces combat losses in non-military recordings, a vivid example of ATO

    Of course, it is a sin to say so, but one does not need to anger God and foretell losses from high tribunes to others. Do not judge, but do not judge, you wake ..... They soon ranked themselves saints .........

    Hence the conclusion: “Do not wake up while it is quiet!” - this applies to the starball of the US Secretary of Defense, evil always returns to the owner.

    In fact, it’s a delight to enjoy other people's disasters, even if it is a potential adversary. But they scowed so much that they spat. Although the dead, most likely, are the same as you ordinary men, whom the army service brought to this ass of the world.

      Humanly sorry ....

      but after all, these guys didn’t fly flowers to the Afghans but to give bombs, rockets and shells to the inhabitants of AFGHANISTAN ... humanity should be shown in moderation.

      Of course, rejoice in disasters is not ours! For example, I would like to wish all potential opponents massive epidemics of dysentery on all fronts, and such a massive one that their brain cleansed at last ... I think it's humane hi
