Locals aid Afghan and British troops in seizure of insurgent arms caches

Ministry of Defence said:
British soldiers and their Afghan Army partners have discovered bomb-making equipment and ammunition after a local Afghan directed them to insurgent arms caches.

Happy days.

Does it mean a step change in attitude has been achieved ? Probably not but this is to be welcomed in any event !
Any good news is welcome and let's fckn hope so because until that happens we're wastn time, money & the lives of our young men. With every casualty there's some corner of a foreign field that is forever England ... but if the locals are content with living in a tribal medieval society then what's the fckn point?
