French Foreign Legion Battles on Afghan Soil
CLICK IMAGE FOR AUDIO
Units of the fabled French Foreign Legion are fighting in Afghanistan, operating under NATO command. More than 700 men from dozens of countries comprise the Legion's contingent.
Photojournalist Jonathan Alpeyrie was recently embedded with the Legionnaires, chronicling its operations against Islamic militants in the valleys and mountains east of Kabul. He recounts his experiences in this audio slideshow.

If this was not so sad, and serious it would be comical.
The more things change, the more they stay the same.
And America wonders why we are considered invaders, and occupiers in the region.
We are what we are.
A large number of criminals and oddballs have traditionally gravitated to the Legion. Their brutality in Algeria is legendary. A fitting complement to the other NATO boneheads killing civilians for fun in Afghanistan.
Good job with this, RZ. Well spotted. It is a disgrace and an illustration of what a free-for-all neocolonialism is these days.
I was absolutely floored when I saw this.
W.T.F. are they thinking?
Do they think the Afghans do not know what, and who the F.F.L. represents? I hope other people mention this on their blogs.
I did not know that the F.F.L. was part of U.S./NATO. :-)
