TO ENGAGE IS TO DIE:

Afghanistan rebels suffer more losses (STEPHEN GRAHAM, May 10, 2005, Chicago Sun-Times)

Insurgents trying to escape U.S. Marines took refuge in a cave and killed two Americans during a five-hour battle in eastern Afghanistan that left an estimated 23 rebels dead, the U.S. military said Monday.

The clash, which involved American attack planes, was the latest in a string of battles that the military says has inflicted heavy losses on militants who have intensified attacks since winter snows melted.
