An Afghan Army soldier carrying rocket-propelled grenades arrives with fellow Afghan and UK forces to Kajaki on March 12, 2007 in Southern Helmand province, Afghanistan. The troops are battling Taliban insurgents as part of NATO's Operation Achilles, aimed at clearing Taliban from northern Helmand in order to facilitate development projects, including upgrading the Kajaki Dam, which provides electricity to much of Afghanistan. Some 5,500 British forces are based in Helmand province, much of which is under control of the Taliban. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
