    with Our Boys in Helmand

    BRITISH commandos launched a devastating blitz on the Taliban – as the evil terrorists held a party to celebrate Benazir Bhutto’s murder.

    The dawn raid was staged after messages were intercepted about the sick knees-up in Afghanistan’s Helmand province.

    Royal Marines crept into position as the fanatics partied the night away just hours after Ms Bhutto was killed in Pakistan.

    The bash was being held in ruined compounds a few hundred yards from Our Boys’ remote base in Kajaki.

    Ragtag Taliban sentries tried to hit back with machine gun fire – but stood no chance against the heroes of 40 Commando’s Charlie Company.

  2. Link does not work, well done the marines.
     
  3. Rumours that the Royal Marines only started the fire fight when they were rumbled as gate crashers at the party are being quashed by the MoD.

    Apparently they got a little carried away, got naked and then roll mats started coming out!!!! :p
     
  4. Well done the Royals, hope you went in to minesweep the bar afterwards.

    But why does every Scum hack have to write like it's a synopsis from a Commando comic?
     
  5. It was a Taliban bar, probably dryer than a camels nut sack.

    Shhhh, you'll give away the Defence writers secret. A wall to wall stack of 30p Training manuals in the office.
     
  6. And the Taleban also got upset that the Royals in their cocktail dresses were showing far too much cleavage.

    Litotes
     
  7. Hahaha! I actually thought that this journo had decided to write in the style of Team America: "evil terrorists" - they're different from the fluffy cuddly type of terrorist, right? :roll:
     
  8. From what I've heard, there are degrees of 'observance'. :D

    The Scum have defence writers?
     
  9. He has probably never heard of a tawt, tau, taut... one of those difficult words with an -ology on the end. :D :D

    Litotes
     
  10. Selected and Trained to the same exacting condtions, performance and standards as the Daily Mail's "intelligence " and "security" experts :!:
     
  11. ...at the John Nicoll & Andy McNab School of Creative Writing, I presume?
     
  12. Surely, being the professionals that they are, the cocktail dresses that they normally carry would be replaced by burkhas?
     
  13. God no - far too much skin covered up. It is the ability to crack on in a lovely skimpy little number regardless of location/any local customs that may be grossly offended that makes them the professionals they are.

    Hope all the lads (Royal or not) and lasses out there have a safe new year.
     
  14. Were the Royals wearing their Santa bonnets? Mark you it is taking the pi$$ for Terry Taliban to be doing this a few hundred metres from the base. Good work by the guys. Right in amongst them.
