Some British Subjects Support Their Troops in Afghanistan…

As during previous conflicts, British subjects at home are supporting their troops abroad. It’s just that now, their troops are on the other side: 

British Muslims are providing the Taliban with electronic devices to make roadside bombs for use in attacks against British forces serving in southern Afghanistan, The Telegraph can disclose …

The disclosure is the latest in a string of suggestions from British commanders about the connections between British Muslims and violence in Afghanistan.

In August, Brigadier Ed Butler, the former commander of UK forces in Afghanistan, told the Telegraph that there are “British passport holders” in the Taliban ranks. Other officers believe their soldiers have killed British Muslims fighting alongside the Taliban.

And last year, it was revealed that RAF Nimrod surveillance planes monitoring Taliban radio signals in Afghanistan had heard militants speaking with Yorkshire and Midlands accents. 

It’s the Tykeban! “Owdo, Rasoolullah. Have you seen our Waheed today? I’ve heard nowt from him since he went down road to plant an IED.”
