How Many More
Four more of our soldiers killed in Afghanistan although to watch the news you would think it was just the first woman to die there, Cpl Sarah Bryant, the three young men are barely mentioned.
How many more of our armed forces must lose their lives before governments recall that the might of the old Soviet Union, hardly known for their kid gloves, could not defeat by force the Taliban and were thrown back, bowed and bloodied.
Why are our people so quiet about this carnage, why are there not demonstrations daily demanding an end to it? It’s beyond me. Afghanistan may well be a training ground for terrorists but if and I doubt it, Afghanistan were denied them they would find somewhere else. They cannot launch an attack from there upon us so why are we there without even a Sadham to focus on? Could it be that I seem to recall we want to build pipelines across the country?
