They Don’t Like it Up ‘Em

Mark Steyn relates a story that somehow missed the attention of CBS/NBC/ABC/CNN/Fox:

In the southern Iraqi town of Amara, 20 men from Scotland’s Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders came under attack from 100 or so of Muqtada al-Sadr’s ”insurgents.” So they fixed bayonets and charged.

It was the first British bayonet charge since the Falklands War 20 years ago. And at the end of it some 35 of the enemy were dead in return for three minor wounds on the Argylls’ side.

Proof again that you don’t mess with the Scots. I mean, just imagine a squad of Groundskeeper Willies coming at you full tilt boogie: “The lads have a temper, and they’ve been drinkin’ all dee!”
