301 What I hear you ask.
301 dead servicemen in Afghanistan since operations began.
Sadly is reported another serviceman lost his life last night.
40 Commando Royal Marines are taking a huge hit this last 3 weeks.
The IED use is some 94% up on its original figure interms of usage.
It is as a weapon very effective at preventing ground occupation.
I wont comment further as 301 families now mourn losses and my rant wont help.
We need new tactics. Radical new tactics.
This conflict will NEVER be won under its current strategy
