Iraqis make a martyr of dead British soldier

I hope this story is true , as it is a very high honour indeed.

Doesn't it have to be cleared through the college of Islamic scholars or some such though? I hope they see what an all round positive effect a confirmation of this declaration could have.

I'd like to see a similar honour for Margaret Hassan too.

Well there weren't until this conflict.

Surely this (somewhat moot) point is the same as the Freedom fighter/terrorist arguement. As the British/US Govts decided the timetable and decided the war was over then they are the ones claiming it is murder. Would be murder if it was in full battle? Maybe the 'enemy sniper' is still at war.

I'm with you fatblerk, we have had more than a few trumped up idiotic, appease the PC/anti-war/unwashed hippy brigade "war crimes" leveled against the Army.

And yet the government still wonder why morale is low or blokes don't want to go on ops where they either get killed or done for "war crimes".
