MOD's sick answer to IED troop protection

British troops are facing road side bombs (IED's) every day in Iraq and Afghanistan. They have consistently been pleading calling for vehicles that are better armoured. Please send us more of those armoured Mastiff's they say, they seem to work well.

This is the MOD response…..

It is, we are told, the British-made, Supacat Weapons Mounted
Installation Kit which “boasts awesome firepower which will be
unleashed early next year,”  130 of these contraptions are to be sent to Afghanistan, where mines are the biggest killer, with reports of yet another fatality today.

We can only assume that the HSE has had a hand in this, to ensure that our soldiers don't get hurt by flying glass or vehicle shrapnel, they have removed it altogether.

Our troops deserve better than this, much better. They are being betrayed by the Government and the MOD.

The next time a senior General or a government minister visits Afghanistan, make sure they travel around in one of these. (Sorry sir, its the only vehicle available, but the MOD assure us it will save lives).
