  2. 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....
     
  3. 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:

  7. Runes take some beating, don'cha know.....
     
  8. 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.

  11. 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.
     
  12. Just shows how easy it mught be to start a war: make a dodgy video and post it on Youtube, saying bad juju about the Profit (PBUH) in the name of whoever you want.

    See what I did there? Hedging my bets in the event the come for me.
     
  13. Excitable buggers ain't they? Sort of the grown up version of 'are you looking at my pint?'
