Someone has blood on their hands

" An Afghan sniper who worked alongside British special forces was executed by the Taliban, it was claimed last night.

He was shot multiple times in front of his family in Kabul, according to Ash Alexander-Cooper, a former British army colonel who was deployed with the Afghan on the same operations."

Snipers have always been an extremely hated species…

…says a man who was shot at by a sniper back in 1991 when he was just 11 years old along with his mum and 7 year old brother. Even as a child hunkering in a stuffy poorly ventilated air raid shelter I was happy when I heard the sniper was supposedly thrown off a fifth story building where he was operating from.

Sorry to hear that. To the larger point, This is just one of many soldiers who will be murdered by the Taliban. Afghanistan for the most part will be brushed away from the msm once again until something big happens. Deleted by Moderator We screwed ourselves at some point in the future with how we withdrew from Afghanistan.

Very sad to hear that, but not surprising at all, given the situation on the ground there.

A pity he wasn't able to get out of the country.

A pity he wasn't given a sniper rifle before they came to get him…

Hold up- so he was collaborating with a foreign invader to assassinate his fellow countrymen? Wouldn't that be kind of like if the Chinese invaded the US and someone signed on with them to kill American "insurgents"? How many of his country men did he execute? How would this garner any kind of sympathy? Lucky he was just shot in front of his family and not with his family!

Hold up – Well I don't support the Taliban/AQ, ISIS or any jihadi/terrorists. So it's too bad he didn't escape. See to us the Taliban, et al. are the "enemy"/bad guys. So I'm glad he killed all he could of those jihadis that wanted to kill us/NATO, etc.

See to me the Taliban/AQ, ISIS, etc., are subhuman insects. So the more that die the better. And guess what ? They feel the same about any "infidel", which BTW is most/many of us here.

We all know one man's freedom fighter is another's Terrorist. Old news …
