30 U.S. troops killed in helicopter crash

Insurgents shot down a U.S. military helicopter during fighting in eastern Afghanistan, killing 30 Americans, most of them belonging to the same elite Navy SEALs unit that killed Osama bin Laden, as well as seven Afghan commandos, U.S. officials said Saturday. It was the deadliest single loss for American forces in the decade-old war.

The downing was a stinging blow to the lauded, tight-knit SEAL Team 6, months after its crowning achievement. It was also a heavy setback for the U.S.-led coalition as it begins to draw down thousands of combat troops fighting what has become an increasingly costly and unpopular war.

None of the 22 SEAL personnel killed in the crash were part of the team that killed bin Laden in a May raid in Pakistan, but they belonged to the same unit. Their deployment in the raid in which the helicopter crashed would suggest that the target was a high-ranking insurgent figure. - Yahoo News

If na for my beloved Naija, we go talk say Osama spirit don dey revenge. America go and restooo and try save your downgraded economy. I know know wetin una still dey find there. Una too dey shok eye corner of the earth to show say na una be World Power.

Its obvious the West is no longer in charge, power is shifting to the BRICS (Emergingin economies). On this note, May the souls of the departed rest in peace and may their beloved families be comforted at this time of great pain, Amen.

Ignorant and insensitive comments. The US soldiers died for their country something you fools have no concept of. Some of our founding fathers would have gladly and did do the same.

I cannot believe the heartless and stupid comments here. So the US is killing off all Seals because they are covering up Osama's death. Didn't you guys read the part where it said the people that died were not part of the Osama mission. God will forgive you fools.
