Update of previous post
This is an update of this morning's post.
Tragically another soldier from the 1st Battalion Irish Guards was killed in Afghanistan yesterday. He was working alongside an Afghan National Army patrol when he was struck by small arms fire.
The deaths go on while our politicians - who have no strategy for this war - continue to argue about funding our military.
The families and friends of now 345 of our armed forces have had their lives changed forever. We should withdraw with the little dignity we have left, although help restructure the country if asked. Only once arms have been laid down will Afghanistan begin to recover. That's the choice of the Afghanis.
