Let's not forget the very recent British Apache accident against the British Paras - with the best intent in the world tragedies happen in conflict, no matter which nation is involved.

Man.....wedding in Afghanistan, id quite fancy Ialy or somewhere like that.....Afghanistan is a bit rare....

Bit as Ninja say's......when the *text deleted**text deleted* is coming down and you call in a Airstrike, you'll be glad of the support. Its like anything, accidents happen.....such is life, such is war.

Happens though, could be caused by anything - bad intel, dodgy missile, dodgy camera, pilot error, anything can happen in the heat of the momenbt

Its a UN force, i.e. US, British, Germans, Dutch, Etc etc etc. When a airstrike is called in, it could be from any one.

The chances are the USAF were on Routine Patrols in the skies and came across this group of people.

At the end of the day, you werent there.....and havent been there. Just like me, so why judge and comment on *text deleted**text deleted* you know nothing about?
