A great story out of Korangal Valley, Afghanistan

This is an ambush executed almost perfectly, well perfect enough to produce 13 dead tangos (known of) and who knows how many wounded.

The platoon’s frontage exploded with noise and flashes of light as
soldiers fired. Bullets struck all of the lead Taliban fighters, the
soldiers said. The first Afghans fell where they were hit, not managing
to fire a single shot.
