Taliban destroy 6 NATO Harrier jump jets

15 armed insurgents in U.S. Army camouflage uniforms attacked a British airfield, killed two American marines, and destroyed six jets.

Elsewhere, an Afghan policeman killed four American service members at a checkpoint where they were working together.  So far this year, over 50 NATO troops have been killed by green-on-blue attacks.

Luckily your are getting away from there!

I think this reinforces my idea that the US and its western allies must get out of the region, leaving behind just the people necessary to engage on intelligence, trade and diplomacy, but always with the lower profile possible.
