SOLDIERS GOING TO IRAQ ONLY HAD 5 BULLETS EACH!
British military operations in Iraq were so badly resourced that some soldiers went into battle with only five bullets each, secret documents have revealed.
Troops were put at 'significant risk' on the front line as they struggled with an 'appalling' shortage of rounds, and radios which collapsed in the heat. The kit revelations are among the most shocking contained in hundreds of pages of classified papers leaked in advance of Sir John Chilcot's inquiry into the Iraq war, which begins on Tuesday.
The reports also suggest that Tony Blair misled MPs and the public in the run-up to the invasion. The documents raise serious questions over Labour's failure properly to equip soldiers heading for the conflict because of the then Prime Minister's desperate desire to conceal plans to invade Iraq from a sceptical public.
The OUTLAW TONY BLAIR, must be taken in front of the enquiry and made to ANSWER IF HE KNEW THAT THERE WERE NO WMDs in IRAQ. Then taken out, FOUND GUILTY of TREASON AND SHOT! AND SHOOT THAT BASTARD MURPHY AS WELL!
