Estonian troops better equipped than ours

Blair loves lying to our troops and making them suffer. First he said troops will get “whatever they need” and then he changed that to “we will listen carefully to any requests that are made of us”.

Apparently Blair isn’t listening carefully enough as he has turned down requests for attack weapons, vital tools, night vision equipment, mine protected vessels and helicopters.

We now have no working mine protected vessels in Afghanistan, a country where there are an estimated 10 million mines. We only had 4 to begin with.

Even Estonian troops who are working alongside the Royal Marines are better equipped than our own troops.
