Two German Soldiers killed - AFGN 201008

#1
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — An Afghan official says a suicide bomber in northern Afghanistan has killed two German soldiers and five children.

The governor of Kunduz province, Mohammad Omar, says two other German soldiers and two children were wounded in the blast Monday.

NATO confirms that some of its soldiers were killed and wounded in the attack in the province's Chahar Dara district.

Omar says the soldiers were patrolling on foot when the bomber riding a bicycle hit them.

Taliban militants regularly use suicide bombers to attack foreign and Afghan troops. But many of their victims have been civilians.

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.

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.

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.

The pendulum could swing the other way: ie., higher casualties causes Bundestag to order pull out.

Do the German Soldiers still have Gott mit uns on their belts.
No. While the navy and air force service dress is very similar to that of pre-1945, German army service dress bears little resemblance to that worn before.
