WELCOME TO THE HELLFIRE CLUB:

Taliban chief who killed Cpl Sarah is taken out by laser-guided missiles (Christopher Leake, 28th June 2008, Daily Mail)

The fanatical Taliban mastermind behind recent attacks in which six British soldiers died in Afghanistan has been killed in a missile attack by an Army Apache helicopter.

In what military chiefs described as a 'deliberate and surgical strike', the 35-year-old rebel leader - known as Sadiqullah - died alongside nine fellow Taliban fighters after the Apache fired two laser-guided Hellfire missiles at their red pick-up truck and destroyed it.

Two Hellfires vs. a pickup truck.

Overkill is good. Overkill gets the job done.
