Another Soldier Killed in Afghanistan

A British soldier, from 33 Engineer Regiment (Explosive Ordnance Disposal), Royal Engineers, died yesterday after being caught in an explosion on Afghanistan.

The bomb disposal expert, who was part of the Counter-IED Task Force leading the fight against the Improvised Explosive Device in Helmand, was killed near Patrol Base Blenheim, close to Sangin in Helmand Province.

The UK death toll from operations in Afghanistan since 2001 is now 245 - with 108 killed in 2009 alone.

So the deaths continue with no end in sight.

Not an end which wil be pleasant, Subrosa. We should leave now and tighten our security here.

Exactly OR but we don't have politicians with any spine or enough strength of character to do that. They all seem to want to cosy in with the US or EU.
