The Tragedy

America’s disastrous foray into Pakistan on Friday left eighteen innocent people dead and one terrorist very much alive.

A lot of critics will no doubt make hay of this latest tragedy and use it to attack the United States for her War on Terror. Before we all go jumping on the Yanks, let’s remember that, yes, this was a terrible, terrible tragedy and yes, it should have been avoided. There are no excuses for such a “mistake” to occur. Let’s not forget however, that this is war on terror and unfortunately, as a result, there will always be innocent deaths – the casualties of war.

If the US were to stop her campaign as result of this disaster, I can guarantee you that we’d be witnessing many more innocent deaths and I don’t want to be amongst them
