Would We Hear This Here? We Should!

And not only as to those leaders who send our Military to wars of choice but also the war profiteers who reap wealth from the huge defense budgets spent and these wars!

Unlawful killing: coroner attacks army inadequacies over blast that killed four

March 9, 2010 Special forces troops were sent to Afghanistan in unsuitable vehicles and without sufficient training and bomb-detecting kit, a coroner has found at the close of the inquest into the death of the only British female soldier killed in the country.

In his narrative verdict into what he described as the unlawful killings of Corporal Sarah Bryant and three SAS reservists, David Masters highlighted widespread concern among soldiers about the limitations of Snatch Land Rovers.

He also cited a shortage of more suitable off-road vehicles and the inadequate training for detecting improvised explosive devices, the biggest killer of troops in Afghanistan. >>>>>

This comes only a few days from Gordon Browns testimony at the Brit Iraq War Inquiry, which I have a few reports posted of Here: Part One as well as Here: Part Two, doing his best rumsfeld impersonation on financing and the equipment sent into the occupation theaters with their soldiers.

Training of first woman soldier killed in Afghanistan could have been better, admits Government

10th March 2010 The Government today admitted military training could have been better after it was attacked at the inquests of four soldiers killed in Afghanistan.

Armed Forces minister Bill Rammell conceded it was ‘not as good as it should have been’ after a coroner ruled the first female British soldier killed in the conflict died because of inadequate training and the wrong equipment.

The verdict led to further anger over Government funding of the Armed Forces and the families of the three other soldiers said they believed their loved ones would be alive today if it were not for the failings. >>>>>

Speaking of rumsfeld, remember the words of the Darling of the media back then,  “As you know, you go to war with the Army you have. They’re not the Army you might want or wish to have at a later time.” adding right with that: “If you think about it, you can have all the armor in the world on a tank and a tank can be blown up.” saying that directly to the soldiers in Kuwait back in December of ’04!

Well it seems to have become the used when needed meme’s of any involved especially as to Afghanistan and Iraq  

The four were killed in a Snatch Land Rover in 2008″>

    Inquiry opens into ‘torture and murder’ by British troops in Iraq

    March 09. 2010

    A public inquiry opened in London yesterday into claims that up to 20 Iraqis were unlawfully killed and others tortured by British troops after a firefight in 2004.

    The inquiry, chaired by a retired High Court judge, got under way less than 24 hours after the armed forces minister, Bill Rammell, announced a wide-ranging investigation into all allegations of abuse by UK forces after the 2003 invasion.

    It means that there will now be three separate inquiries going on simultaneously into claims that British troops ill-treated and even murdered Iraqi prisoners, prompting fears that the glut of investigations could undermine the reputation of the country’s armed forces. >>>>>

    Along with this came this yesterday U.S. Lied to Brits About Torture!! Surprised? Not!… which takes you to a post I put up with a few of the reports that came out about this spoken by the head of M15 in an answer to a question at some forum.

    Are the whispers, and sadly they’re the whispers of only a few, of reality growing into speech and leading to what needs to be done to restore our lost morality and the integrity of what we and our constitution are supposed to stand for, and so much more?

    We need an inquiry on Iraq

    March 10, 2010 Ask an American audience what it knows about Britain’s “Chilcot Inquiry” and chances are you will draw blank looks. That’s too bad. Americans ought to be intently interested in the Chilcot Inquiry, named for its chairman, senior civil servant Sir John Chilcot, because it’s likely to provide the only authoritative account they will have into the whys and wherefores of the Iraq war.


    It’s absurd then, that this country has turned a blind eye to the war’s origins while lesser players investigate them. An investigative news site, Consortium News, recently observed, “It’s reasonable to assume that as far as the invasion of Iraq is concerned official U.S. policy is: no inquiry, no discussion of legality, no accountability.” >>>>>
