War and the US-NATO Missile Shield
Is it because Afghanistan is so far away that we seldom flinch these days when we hear of another member of our military has been killed in the war in that desolate land?
Yesterday morning a serviceman, from 23 Pioneer Regiment,The Royal Logistics Corps, was killed in an explosion in Helmand province. He died as a result of clearing explosive devices.
Clearing IEDs in this war is a thankless task because it's well known that for every IED that is destroyed, it will be replaced within hours by the Taliban. The whole country is blighted by IEDs, placed by Afghanis who purport to defend their countrymen. These devices have caused far more harm to innocent Afghanis than any actions of our armed forces.
A total of 348 UK military personnel have died since the war in Afghanistan began.
Reading this blog yesterday rang a bell. More NATO lies and yet little is said in the British MSM. Our politicians are party to this 'plan'.
