The Herald on Sunday had a deeply concerning story yesterday; check this out:
The Taleban says Kiwi troops are easier targets than other Coalition forces because of their inferior weaponry.After the New Zealand armed force's bloodiest month since November 1951, the Taleban's Zabiullah Mujahid promised more bloodshed for Kiwi troops."We will find them and kill them, there's no safety for them," the Afghan militia's spokesman said.The Taleban had extensive knowledge of New Zealand weaponry and movements, he said in an authenticated telephone interview with a Herald on Sunday correspondent in Kabul.
