GET READY FOR THE BODY BAGS-AINSWORTH'S WARNED THE TALIBAN!

THE AFGHAN ARMY YESTERDAY ON MANOUVERES


Bob Ainsworth: Casualties are a 'very real risk'  Offensive will be the 'biggest of its kind since Vietnam'


Defence Secretary Bob Ainsworth warned the public to be braced for casualties last night as troops prepared to launch the biggest offensive in the eight-year Afghanistan war.  A strike force of 15,000 British, U.S. and Afghan troops will mount airborne raids in the most dangerous areas of central Helmand province.

Am I being particularly dense, (not like me ! ), but if you were mounting an operation on an enemy that doesn't wear uniforms, doesn't as such have a standing army and can melt into the civilian population and disappear would you spread it all over your newspapers and the Internet, days before you mount it?  Is it not like the Allies telling Hitler where the d-day landings were going to be?

Or maybe WIGGY AINSWORTH THINKS THEY DON'T HAVE COMPUTERS!

He's a fucking idiot.

The commander in Afghanistan was interviewed on telly and said he had announced the attack to the taliban as he hoped the taliban would move out of the area rather than stand and fight. Thus preventing casualties on both sides.
The problem is always the same though. As with the Panther Claw attack all the ground that is taken can't be held due to a lack of troops and is being taken back again.
I think we should get out of Afghanistan and defend our own borders and freedoms.
Might avoid nonsense like this..

Rab, maybe it's a cunning double bluff!

Vera, I agree. That bus driver thing is incredible. I wonder if he pointed the bus towards Mecca first?

I'll alert my local council to get some more houses ready for refugees.

Headson, yes we better build some more high rise flats. Glasgow's running out of them, so full are they with asylum seekers.
