+ Fires in Norway Embassy in Teheran.

Apparently crowds tried to storm the NATO/Norway troop division in Afghanistan and the Police killed 4 of the protesters when they opened fire.

Good to see the police take action against these protestors.

You storm a military base, and they are libel to shoot back.

Actually since only 4 where killed, that suggests to me that the NATO guys where holding their fire.

Indeed. Too many out there looking for any excuse to start a fight.

This is where I'd like to quote my esteemed colleague, ANCFlyer:

"Fire for effect."

Yeah, storming a military base...that's a great idea!
