"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Always & Forever

Two more soldiers, from The Black Watch, 3rd Battalion The Royal Regiment of Scotland, have been killed in an explosion.  They were on  foot patrol this morning, just north of Lashkar Gah, in Helmand. They haven't been named but their families have been informed.

UPDATE: Michael Yon has posted a new report. The wealth of detail he gives is probably why he was kicked out of Sangin by the MoD. This is how Defence of the Realm sees it.
