Navy Seals in Astan on 60 minutes.
How are these ****heads still walking the earth with that BS. Did you even spot the MG user fire at his feet? You'd hardly call it 'guerilla' fighting either; makes me think it's some yobs that've been pulled off the streets to help fight and pull trigger with the weapons shoved in their hands.
Now if only a couple of Apaches had turned up at the end... that'd be a GREAT ending to the story
Some 3 Para videos from last summer. They are not mine (I'm only an armchair observer) but were taken by people who were there. You may already have seen them, but I think they still give an insight into the combat in Helmand.

This was posted on the 5th page but I think it deserves more views.
Firefight in Iraq
Personal video of a RPG attack in Iraq, and the chaos that ensues. Note the close rocket hit to his left and the near shooting by friendly fire.
wow man, that's some serious business
