Another Family Grieves
A soldier, from 1st Battalion The Rifles, was killed by an explosive device while on foot patrol in the Shaparek area of the Nahr-e Saraj district of Helmand Province on Friday. He was part of a foot patrol promoting a local community engagement project (whatever that means).
While our military continue to be used as political pawns by our politicians craving for praise from their superiors in America, David Cameron decides to include British police in his spider's web by appointing an American to advise him how to deal with riots. A shameful move.
The British military have now lost 379 personnel in the Afghanistan war.
