    It is from 2nd German State Television.

    It reports about new arrived Paratroopers from Niedersachsen.
    The narrator of the Video says, that the company will be under fire from now on almost every day.

    32 of the Paratroopers get separated from their company.
    They have some Dingos (newest German Infantry vehicle) with them.

    The 32 men get attacked by Taliban.
    The Germans need 1 hour to even spot from where the firing is coming.
    The battle lasts 9 hour, with rifles becoming useless due to overheating.
    A Dingo explodes by a remote-controlled mine.

    3 of the German Paratroopers died out of this battle with several others wounded.

    Yes, a full out war is necessary. Fighting terrorists on their terms is in error.
