Taliban Attacks British Base Prince Harry Stationed at

The Taliban launched a minor offensive earlier today on Camp Bastion, the British military base Prince Harry is currently stationed at, with twenty militants armed with weapons, rocket-propelled grenades and suicide vests breaching the important installation's perimeter, which is adjacent to Camp Leatherneck.

The offensive resulted in the deaths of two U.S. Marines, several NATO members wounded and a couple of  buildings and aircraft destroyed, but the militants never came within a dangerous distance of Prince Harry. All  of the militants were killed in the attack, save one who was wounded and captured, and the Taliban released an incoherent statement linking the controversial film made in America about their prophet and Prince Harry's presence in the country as their motivation for the attack. 

Regardless of the Taliban's reasoning, which is and has been indefinitely incoherent to anyone with a capacity for thought, I'm glad the small offensive was ultimately unsuccessful and that we avenged our two Marines by wiping out their entire force in short order. 

What say you?
