MEANWHILE, THE ENEMY HAS A RANGE OF A FOOT, WHIICH IS WHY THEY HAVE TO BLOW THEMSELVES UP:

British sniper describes how he shot Taliban commander... from TWO KILOMETRES away (Daily Mail, 15th August 2009)

Corporal Christopher Reynolds, 25, camped on the roof of a shop for three days as he waited for the perfect conditions to shoot the terrorist commander.

He calculated the range, wind and trajectory before pulling the trigger - and the bullet flew 1,853 metres before hitting the target in the chest.

The warlord, known as 'Mula', is thought to be responsible for co-ordinating several attacks against British and American troops since the outbreak of war in 2001.

Cpl Reynolds, of 3 Scots, The Black Watch, who has already killed 32 rebel fighters, has now been credited with the longest kill in Afghanistan at 1.15 miles away.
