    Marines clear Taliban from key Afghan dam (VIDEO)


    Royal Marines have cleared a Taliban base, consisting of 25 compounds, near the Kajaki hydro-electric dam, in an effort to help bring stability and power to Afghanistan.

    Once fully operational the dam will bring electricity to 1.8 million people. But the area around Kajaki, northern Helmand Province, has been the site of regular insurgent mortar attacks over the past two months and civilians have been forced from their homes leaving the dam largely unserviceable.


    FULL STORY

    VIDEO LINK Edit: Video just shows the dam, no "action".

    I think this photo very well describes the situation between american and iraqi troops. First are patient teachers, showing how to do literally everything, second ones, though making some progress in training and equipm. still look smth constrained, wooden and amateurish...
