Pendant que les derniers troupes Canadiens déployés en Afghanistan retournaient de leur déploiement, un autre soldat Canadien s’est suicidé. 

R.I.P. Caporal-Chef Alain Lacasse du 3ème Bataillon, Royal 22ème Régiment.

C’est absolument inacceptable que des soldats Canadiens continuent à mourir long après la fin de leurs déploiements. C’est inacceptable que des hommes et femmes prêtent à sacrifier leurs vies pour leurs pays continuent à tomber victime à l’intérieur de nos propres frontières de choses qu’ils ont vécu autrepart.

Special Forces raid a house with ANA soldiers, only to be ambushed inside the house itself.

A round impacts the ANA soldier’s magazine (seen in the second gif, watch for sparks).

Apparently the ANA soldier who cut and ran was killed outside the compound, but the SF killed the ambushing insurgent and captured at least two others.

Shit.

They had calculated that the West would deploy a token force and when threatened would duck or run. They knew us better than we knew ourselves.
