    Had a very close call this morning.

    I work in Afghanistan, I set up HF/VHF radios for the Afghanistan National Police, and we were on site at the police station and I had just got the antenna mast set up, and the bad guys (Taliban) started dropping in 82mm mortors on us. Hit us with 3 luckly no one was injured.

    Sure makes you wish you were on a lake fishing for catfish........lol

    I am just thankful, these goons arent good old country boys........they cant hit nothing. The team I went out with today, got hit 2 times in different spots, and they had 3 Hum V's and the Taliban shot about 500 rounds, and didnt hit a single vehicle........small arms and RPG's.......

    It don't matter how many rounds they fire off... all they have to do is hit with one. Keep your b_tt, down, and get home when you can. Should be some fish with your name on them.
