Injustice to marines
1:57pm Wednesday 24th October 2012 in Letters
I REFER to the seven marines arrested over the suspected execution of a Taliban prisoner.
This has nothing at all to do with British police, and the officer who brought it to the authorities’ attention, after viewing a laptop belonging to one of the marines, should be charged under the Official Secrets Act and sentenced to five years on the front line in Afghanistan. The marine in question should receive a slap on the wrist and be returned to duty. Had the situation been reversed, the seven marines would have been mutilated and killed and the Prime Minister’s thoughts would have been with their families, or so he says. What a nation of PC lefties we have become. God help us.
