Purely speculation at this point in time, but Bastion is where Harry is just now and this attack could be part of the taliban's promise to target him...

Of course speculation doesn't help but someone has to do it....

I have a dilemma, my crystal ball is telling me one thing, but the chicken bones are telling me another. I'm off into the garden with the divining rods before typing my version of whys and wherefores. Back in a mo!:mrgreen:

I've just gutted a cat and flung it entrails at the wall.

No real reason... just sh1ts and giggles really.

Good reading them cats entrails shame to waste them! Not as accurate as "stoats innards" mind you.

Given that it was an American camp that was attacked and that the Muslim world is busy burning down anything with any connection to the US thanks to a youtube video, I can think of more obvious lines of speculation.

Plus, I have heard unconfirmed rumours that we are fighting a war in Afghanistan and this may not actually be the first time that NATO soldiers have been shot at there.

The raggies have already confirmed it was revenge for the dodgy home movie, no connection to The Ginger so nothing to see...move along!

Should we tell a policeman?
Here comes the policeman,
The big friendly policeman,
PC McGarry number 452.
Lost dogs, thick fogs,
Don't know what to do.
Then get the policeman,
The big friendly policeman.
PC McGarry number 452. Here comes the policeman,
The big friendly policeman,
PC McGarry number 452.
Lost a key, cat up a tree,
Baby lost a shoe.
Then get the policeman,
A big friendly policeman.
PC McGarry number 452.

Excitable buggers ain't they? Sort of the grown up version of 'are you looking at my pint?'

If only Tropper was here to give us the lowdown direct from Sky news.

Sky news presenter just asked some chap in the studio, is it time to bring Harry back home, if he was the target.

Why is Harry in all honesty, worth more than the next guy? Is it not time to bring them all home then, if nasty ragheads are going to attack them?

As always. the Taliban will claim anything that they think will grab a headline.

I just wish the bone-headed media would appreciate this fact and actually add some value or at least filter out the crap!

This attack does rather shine an uncomfortable light on the Defence Secretary's recently quoted hint/intention/suggestion that troops will start coming home next year.

Bastion has been hit before, but not for a while I believe, and not in these numbers.

Standby for the 'Bring Harry home now!' brigade.
