I`ve heard the SAS lost many men in the recent C130 crash North of Baghdad. We have been told that 10 died, but I think this number could be around the 70 mark !
So actual SAS dead could total about 60! Now I`m not to sure what the currant SAS strength is, it used to be about 200, but could now total around the 400 mark. Anyway, the loss of 60 SAS is a huge loss, could this be the reason why Blair was/had been crying when he read out his statement on the crash?
Military accident investigators believe the Special Forces plane was hit when at least six heatseeking SA-18 missiles were fired at it.
