Afghan troops face new enemy

Taliban fanatics have been making "hate calls" to the
UK homes and relatives of soldiers serving in Afghanistan.

Senior commanders believe they get the numbers either by monitoring troops' mobile phone calls or from staff at Afghan phone companies.

The wife of one RAF officer was told: "You'll never see your husband alive - we have just killed him."

It was some hours before officials could confirm that her husband was still safe and well. All troops serving in southern Afghanistan have now been banned from carrying mobile phones.

Soldiers in Iraq can keep their phones but have been warned to keep their use to a minimum.

This is bad and it is about to get a lot worse for our soldiers in Afghanistan because the Taliban are teaching children as young as 6 to kill our soldiers. I don’t know about our soldiers but I wouldn’t relish the thought of killing someone so young and brainwashed.
