BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan - As the Coalition was patrolling the Garmser District of Helmand Province, they were attacked by terrorists with small arms, rocket-propelled grenade, machine gun and sniper fire from a group of extremists.

Oh? Is that really what they want? Well. We showed them that you do not mess with US of A!
“If enemy extremists fire upon Coalition forces, we will respond with deadly accuracy,” said Lt. Col. Paul Fitzpatrick, Combined Joint Task Force -76 spokesman.

“If they attack Afghan civilians, we will respond just as forcefully. We remain committed to engaging any threats to the peaceful future of the Afghan people.”
Got that? Good!

The ANA (Afghan National Army) and the Security Forces regularly patrol this area, so as to make it secure for humanitarian projects and reconstruction.
