AFGHAN WEATHER REPORT: While American soldiers survived the "brutal Afghan winter" of yore, can they survive the latest climatic threat:
During a three-day mission called Operation Iron Mountain, more than 100 soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division were flown into the brutally hot mountains here near the Pakistani border last weekend to put a stop to regular rocket attacks on a nearby U.S. base. (WaPo; emphasis added.)
(I'm not mocking the risks our soldiers face, just the adjectives and adverbs American journalists choose.)
