French go "wobbly" over Afghan KIA

Not to diminish the loss, but if you go wobbly over 10 KIA, you're sending a powerful message. That's a message the Taliban won't fail to notice.

...the opposition Socialists called for a parliamentary committee to meet and doubts were expressed about the official account of the incident in which the 10 soldiers were killed and 21 wounded in a fierce mountain battle.

"Afghanistan -- should we leave?" ran the front-page headline of the Thursday edition of left-wing newspaper Liberation, which is strongly critical of Sarkozy's policies...

This reaction is going to wind up costing the French a lot more than 10 KIA in the future.
