Our Boys blitz Taliban bash (JEROME STARKEY with Our Boys in Helmand, 12/31/07, The Sun)

BRITISH commandos launched a devastating blitz on the Taliban – as the evil terrorists held a party to celebrate Benazir Bhutto’s murder.

The dawn raid was staged after messages were intercepted about the sick knees-up in Afghanistan’s Helmand province.

Royal Marines crept into position as the fanatics partied the night away just hours after Ms Bhutto was killed in Pakistan. [...]

Ragtag Taliban sentries tried to hit back with machine gun fire – but stood no chance against the heroes of 40 Commando’s Charlie Company.

"evil terrorists ...... the sick knees-up ..... as the fanatics partied ..... Our Boys’ remote base.... the heroes of 40 Commando’s Charlie Company..... Two bloodthirsty revellers trying to creep towards Our Boys in a trench...."

Now THAT, by God, is journalism!

I am beginning to suspect that The Sun favors the British military killing Taliban. Odd, what?
