A British soldier was killed in Afghanistan yesterday. According to the MoD he was from 36 Engineer Regiment and was serving with the Counter Improvised Explosion Device task force and was killed in a blast in the Sangin area of Helmand province.
The number of British military personnel killed in Afghanistan now stands at 325.
Also yesterday the Guardian published comprehensive details of the 'leaked' Afghanistan War Logs and further information is published today. From what I've read so far I'm in agreement with Dark Lochnagar (expletives used). EU Referendum maintains the Wikileaks memos were stolen but somehow I can't accept that, although I have to concur that if the War Logs make the lives of politicians that little bit harder, that is a good thing.
To my mind the 'leaked' memos have found their way into the public domain to be the catalyst for Obama to change strategy once again and we here in the UK will have to wait for his decision because we do not have even one politician strong enough to stand up and shout 'enough'.
