The Answer Lies With The Politicians
Yesterday, two British soldiers were killed when their armoured vehicle struck a makeshift bomb in Afghanistan.
Both men belonged to the 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards and had been providing security in the Yakchai region of Nahr-e Saraj when they were caught in the explosion. They were serving with the Formation Reconnaissance Squadron.
One soldier was named as Lance Corporal Peter Eustace, aged 25, from Liverpool. The other soldier is expected to be named later today.
The deaths take the number of British troops who have died since the war began in 2001 to 388.
How many more families, both military and civilian, will suffer the torment grief bestows? The answer lies with politicians.
