33 militants killed in Afghanistan: US military

KABUL (AFP) - The US military said that Afghan and foreign troops killed 33 militants in some of the heaviest fighting this year in Afghanistan , which is gripped by mounting Taliban insurgent violence.

It said that 30 militants died Thursday in the flashpoint southern province of Helmand, in the same district where a key anti-Taliban lawmaker was killed in a Taliban bomb attack the same day.

The toll was the biggest from a single clash announced by the military in more than two months, with Afghanistan gearing up for another year of intense fighting with the Al-Qaeda-linked Taliban after the winter months

two australian soldiers have been killed in iraq in the past week. the whole nation is up in arms.
one died in a fire fight against taliban rebels the other attempting to disarm a road side bomb. "the anti-taliban law-maker".
Australia respect and honours their fallen soldiers because the die "defend their country".
33 rebels killed in one single clash and we are up in arms over 2. we are must cry for the fallen soldiers fighting a corporate war even though their sacrifice seems so broken. it would not be good for their families to realise australia knows they dieing for a hollow cause.
