On-Base Imam Kills British Soldier

In First Insider Attack Of 2013

A member of the Afghan army who acted as a prayer leader for troops has shot dead a British soldier in the year's first insider attack, according to officials in the region.

As many as six British troops were also injured in the shooting in Helmand Province. The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement released shortly after details emerged, the BBC reported.[More...]

Apparently, the now-dead Imam bastard first turned his weapon on fellow Afghan soldiers but didn't shoot until he turned his weapon on the British soldiers.

Prayers for the family of the fallen soldier. May he RIP.

2 I am starting to think that not all the Afghanis want foreign troops in their country. The sooner we get out and leave the Afghanis to decide their own future the better. The Afghan government in Kabul is even more corrupt than the one we had in Saigon. But what can you expect when we are willing to allow their President to accumulate 500 million in 10 years.

3 Right on Occam. We have no business there. There is nothing to be gained and only lives to be lost. The Russians must be laughing their asses off.
