Our darkest day in war on Taliban: Eight soldiers killed as Afghan death toll overtakes number of troops lost in IraqBy David Williams and Matthew HickleyLast updated at 10:19 AM on 11th July 2009article-1198940-05ABE85D000005DC-659_634x394_popup.jpgEight British soldiers lost their lives with several more left critically wounded in a bloody day in Afghanistan yesterday.Five died when a foot patrol was trapped in a Taliban ambush and blown up by a booby-trap bomb - the highest death toll from a single attack since the war began.The three others were killed in separate incidents on the darkest day of the war.The deaths came as soldiers on the front line appeared to question the mission and why they were deployed in Afghanistan.One young infantryman approached Daily Mail reporter Richard Pendlebury and told of his frustrations.Foreign Secretary David Miliband said today that our soldiers were engaged in a battle for 'the future of Britain' as they lay down their lives in Helmand province.
Allow the brave men and woman going to fight 3000 miles away in a 3rd world country and then David Milliband say its for the future of the UKWhat have they done to us that will threaten this country when the people there cant even hold there own country togetherObviously there for other reasons as they do not pose a threat to this country because if that was the case they would of dealt with other nations that pose a greater threat

$2,000 for a Dead Afghan Child $100,000 for Any American Who Died Killing it. By Jay Janson June 30, 2009 "Opednews" -- -After Obama apologized for the strike which the Afghan government claimed killed well over a hundred ordinary country folk, came the report that the families of those killed, and subsequent Afghani dead falling in harms way of the US military, continuing as before, can apply to receive up to $2,000 compensation. This is the price the great United States of America puts on an Afghan or Pakistan human being, while awarding $100,000 to families of Americans who die while fighting and killing wherever. Shocking? Shame provoking? Embarrassing that no Afghani or Pakistani child or parent has any human right at all, including the right not to be blown to pieces in a US drone air strike? - the final insult being the value of their lives put at a mere $2,000 by the wealthiest nation in history?
