Afghan Civilian Casualties

Asked whether the Prime Minister agreed with Paul Flynn MP’s comments that British troops had committed atrocities in Afghanistan by causing civilian casualties, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that we deeply regretted all civilian casualties. Protecting the Afghan civilian population was a cornerstone of the Afghan mission, and all British troops underwent comprehensive training on the strict rules of engagement. The PMS also pointed out that this contrasted with the attitude of insurgents whose indiscriminate use of suicide bombs, roadside bombs and human shields caused the majority of deaths in Afghanistan.

  1. I notice the PMS did not even attempt to answer the question put. NATO has been responsible for so many atrocities over the last 9 years that there is no doubt that Britain has blood on it’s hands. Karzai is sick condemning the latest massacres of civilians, particularly in air-strikes and drone attacks. Seems like we need to look to Wikileaks for the truth once again. Give it 6 months and Cameron will be squirming, ducking and weaving like governess Clinton was the other day.
