  2. RIP men..
     
  3. Will these latest German losses lead to a more robust ROE from the Heer? The Germans have now lost 30 dead, and over 80 injured in various attacks, accidents and incidents. They also have regular IED incidents and mortar and rocket attacks.

    How much can the Germans take, before they decide they want to get some?

    RIP to the Allied fallen.
     
  4. Quick warn them as the date included gives them a month to enjoy themselves.................
     
  5. True Tare, but not a thread for jokes.

    RIP.
     
  6. RIP.

    Ich werde an eure Familien und Freunde denken.
     
  7. Date amended , my apologies.

    The Bundestag voted last Thursday by a clear majority to reinforce and extend their ISAF mission. Kunduz is getting more and more dramas , and I imagine , but am by no means certain, that the German Government will be looking to start exerting some authority in their AoR, before the situation really goes sour.
     
  8. You may see a stronger call for them to get out and go home from various German political corners. Sad loss for the Germans.

    Their Grandfathers would have had the place sewn up by now.

    Though I suspect they might have thinned the population out a tad more.
     
  10. The pendulum could swing the other way: ie., higher casualties causes Bundestag to order pull out.
     
  11. Well, we have a few Heer lurkers here, what's the opinion in Bundeswehr?
     
  12. RIP
