March 9, 2012

It is with deep sadness that the Ministry of Defence must advise that Sergeant Nigel Coupe of 1st Battalion The Duke of Lancaster’s Regiment and Corporal Jake Hartley, Private Anthony Frampton, Private Christopher Kershaw, Private Daniel Wade and Private Daniel Wilford all of 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment were killed on Tuesday 6 March 2012.

The six soldiers were killed in Lashkar Gah Durai region in an operational area on the border of Helmand and Kandahar provinces.   They were on a patrol to dominate the area and maintain freedom of movement when their Warrior Armoured Fighting Vehicle was struck by an improvised explosive device resulting, tragically, in the death of all six personnel.

    I condolence to Ministry of Defence, buddies and loved ones of the six soldiers killed in Afghanistan.
    For a little time, also if flebile, the hope was they were only wounded. Now the notice They are died.
    God has embraced them and now they live on his reigns. This done us, for our faith, serenity. We ear their voices telling us not be sad, as they are where no light of sun or lamp need, as God light them.
    They are living on our hearts for ever .
    Buddies, You are part of us and we ever remember your sacrifices, humanity, and all you have made for us.

      From “The Telegraph” of Monday 1 August 2011 by Daniel Knowles The end of British power. The Army is being cut back to its smallest size in a century, the RAF is losing its jets and the Navy has fewer ships than ever before. We are learning, finally, that we cannot have power on the cheap — that our politicians cannot change the world without asking us to pay for it. In the future, they won’t even try. I find that rather sad. Today was deleted the RAF rescue service too.

    I appreciate the sacrifice made by these men and their families. I pray for the families in their time of sorrow.

    The UK is bankrupt and can no longer pay the Taliban. The British Army to conquer the province of Helmand, Mullah Abdul Salaam has paid, then appointed by the British governor of the district despite the protests of the Afghan government. You have paid millions of pounds to the Taliban so much that in 2008 the President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai has expelled two senior British officials discovered while paying bribes to the rebels.
