Brit military turns on its own hard pressed heros, calls deletion of enemy murder. Fools!

Damn pc fluffy assed behind a desk hand wringers in military turn on one of their own.

I just haven’t the words.  The Marine (Brit) kills a wounded taliban cockroach, accused of murder and gets life.
Oh, that’ll impress the terrorists ok and turn em all into .... nothing.  They’re probably laughing at the stupidity of the authorities here.

There are two stories here but only one link.

There really is nothing to see at the video the Mail refers to as, “chilling”.  It’s all audio and most not clear so waste of 6 minutes. There are loads of photos though.

When will soldiers learn NOT to have recording devices turned on when doing these necessary things?
Were they going to post it on YT? 

‘We won’t condemn the killer Marine’: Ex-Commando chief’s vow as the first soldier since WW2 is convicted of murder in battle

· Unnamed Marine faces life in jail for shooting dead injured Taliban prisoner

· The 39-year-old blasted him in the chest at close range with 9mm pistol

· Serving soldiers stunned, saying commando has been ‘hung out to dry’

By Ian Drury and David Williams

British troops were stunned last night after a Royal Marine sergeant was found guilty of murder.
As the nation prepared to remember the sacrifices of the Armed Forces on Remembrance Sunday, the commando was convicted of executing a severely wounded Taliban prisoner in Afghanistan.

He is the first serviceman since the Second World War to be found guilty of murder on active service abroad.
Last night a former commander of the elite force insisted he would not condemn the convicted man, an experienced veteran of Iraq and previous Afghan tours.

The 39-year-old will be sentenced to life in prison for shooting the injured insurgent in the chest at close range with a 9mm pistol in a remote cornfield in Helmand Province, then taunting him: ‘Shuffle off this mortal coil, you cunt.  It’s nothing you wouldn’t do to us.’

Extensive inquiries carried out in the area of the murder with the help of former UK and US military translators have uncovered evidence that the victim could have been Abdullah Jan Agha, a 23-year-old Taliban commander.

The momentous verdict sent shockwaves through the Armed Forces, with troops saying the man, who can be identified only as Marine A, had been ‘hung out to dry’.

A total of 446 British troops have been killed in Afghanistan – many of them Marines – the vast majority after being blown up by Taliban bombs or shot dead in insurgent ambushes.

· The convicted sergeant – who may never be named because of fears for his family – had completed six tours of Northern Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan.

· Video of the murder justified action taken by a Marine has been blocked from release in case it is used for propaganda by jihadi websites.

· The murder action took place near the end of a ‘tour from hell’ where body parts of British soldiers were hung from trees by insurgents.

Campaigners criticised the military authorities for prosecuting Marine A, who served with 42 Commando on a stressful summer tour of duty in 2011.

‘Taliban hung our mates’ body parts from trees during six months of hell’: Horrific testimony of Marines fighting in ‘Death Valley’

· Marines tried for murder of Taliban insurgent describe their ‘tour from hell’
· One tells court martial that around 20 friends were killed or maimed there

By David Williams and Ian Drury

In a bleak corner of Helmand, only twisted, rusting barbed wire, rubble and broken blocks of concrete remain of what were once the British checkpoints of Kamiabi and Omar.

Yet two years ago they were considered vital to British operations and security in the region – a buffer against the Taliban, and during the summer of 2011, home to the Marines of 42 Commando.

They provided basic protection in a Taliban stronghold area known as ‘Death Valley’ and through the long hot months of the 2011 ‘fighting season’, clashes were so intense it was compared to the Zulu wars.
At its worst, it was a daily lottery for survival.

At one point during the six-month ‘tour to hell’, the body parts of British troops blown up by improvised explosive devices were hung in trees as trophies by Taliban fighters to taunt the Marines as they patrolled.

Some Marines have said they were also so concerned about running out of ammunition that they collected Taliban weapons and ammunition.

Indeed in the words of Marine C – one of the three man tried for the Afghan’s murder demise : ‘It is a s*** place out there, it’s not nice. It’s just a dirty, s***** war.’

Marine C told the court martial that around 20 friends had been killed or maimed during the six-month tour, including a popular young officer and a Marine who had previously won a Military Cross for courage under fire. He was blown up while searching a mud-walled compound.

Marine A, a hardened veteran of previous Afghan tours as well as Iraq, said other comrades had suffered ‘life changing’ injuries in the blast and described the effect the deaths had on the commandos.

He said they were not always able to recover the body parts of dead or maimed comrades. ‘It had quite a harsh affect. It’s not a nice thing for the lads.

‘Close friends they have lived with have been killed and parts of their bodies are displayed as a kind of trophy for the world to see.’

Marine B said he had been under attack ‘every single day’ and there had been ten casualties in one 24-hour period.

‘My friend’s legs had been put in a tree, I picked up my mate’s brains. I have no good memories of that tour. My way of coping with that was to put it away in a box at the back of my head.’
