ANOTHER BROWN FUCK-UP!

A British soldier, an interpreter and two civilians were killed in a dawn raid to free Stephen Farrell, the reporter held captive by Taliban militants.


STEPHEN FARRELL

Gunmen had seized Mr Farrell and his interpreter, Sultan Munadi, on Saturday while they were working in a village south of Kunduz. Mr Munadi, a father-of-two, died in a hail of bullets. Farrell was unharmed but another man and a woman were killed in the crossfire and as he left, Farrell said he saw the body of his colleague. He said: “He was lying in the same position as he fell. That’s all I know. I saw him go down in front of me. He did not move. He’s dead. He was so close, he was just two feet in front of me when he dropped.”

Gordon Brown has praised the "greatest courage" of the soldier, believed to be a paratrooper, who was killed in the operation. Announcing the death of the British solder, the Prime Minister said his thoughts were with man's family and said his bravery would not be forgotten.

Farrell, 46, was kidnapped en route to the site of a controversial Nato airstrike on two hijacked fuel tankers in Kunduz province four days ago. It is the second time Farrell has been kidnapped. In April 2004, while on assignment for The Times, he was kidnapped at gunpoint by bandits near Fallujah in Iraq.


I haven't posted anything for the last couple of days because nothing awful had happened to Brown, which would have pleased me greatly, and nothing else had happened to make me angry enough to write about it. True to form, though, McFuckwit hasn't kept his incompetent hands away from trouble for long.

Stephen Farrell, a reporter for the New York Times was repeatedly warned that this area in Kunduz province was crawling with Taliban after the NATO airstrike on two fuel tankers there four days ago but he chose to ignore those warnings and go there anyway and was kidnapped, because of his own arrogance/stupidity, along with his interpreter. This man has been kidnapped before in Iraq so has already gone through the experience of being held hostage - one would think, not unreasonably, that he should have learned a valuable lesson from his abduction in Fallujah and take advice from the people who knew the situation in Kunduz better than he did.

Although negotiations were well under way and a deal to release this "serial" hostage had almost been reached, McDoom then decided to jump in with all of his usual finesse, (probably in a bid to ingratiate himself with Obama because of his previous double-dealing fuck-up over the Lockerbie bomber), and order a raid to free Farrell which resulted in the death of a British soldier, the interpreter and two other innocent civilians.

Farrell got himself into that mess and it should have been left to the negotiations to get him out of it, if possible - other than that, he'd asked for it and should have been left to face the consequences of his foolhardiness. Brown's was a typical knee-jerk reaction from the man whose mental stability has come under even more scrutiny and suspicion over the last few days and has resulted in the unnecessary deaths of four people.



Someone in the lily-livered Labour Party needs to find the courage to relieve Brown of his job before he can do any more damage, especially if the recent reports about his taking of banned anti-depressants are true.

Fucking brilliant, Gordon, you twat!

I think tying both Obama and Brown together in straight jackets and dumping them somewhere with a heavy object attached sounds like a great idea. All the Labour Party and Liberals know how to do is Fuck something up. Farrell is a douchbag also.

So sad to lose good soldiers. I am sorry for your loss.

The Conservative Lady said...

You are absolutely right about this. It happens all of the time...some fool puts him/herself in a dangerous position and by doing so others have to risk their life to get him/her out of a jam. Interesting thought...Brown doing it to make nice to Obama.

"Someone in the lily-livered Labour Party needs to find the courage to relieve Brown of his job before he can do any more damage,"

Since our Jim epitomises Labour is it not best to keep him in place to assist their demise? At some point joe will relate to the fact that they are one and the same.

Spider, As you say a good British soldier gave up his life to save this idiot reporter, such a waste.

VotR said...

The curse of Jonah strikes again.

"Anyone but Gordon" thinks the army chiefs.

Goodnight Vienna said...

Four lives lost to save one idiot journalist - it doesn't add up. The 'negotiations' probably would have failed but Brown was wrong too in ordering the rescue mission since this was the 3rd time the guy had been captured. He should be sacked because he's obviously incompetent. (Brown as well).

Dazed and Confused said...

This is just typical of Brown over the last twelve Years, taking major risks on the backs of other peoples lives and aspirations. When all goes swimmingly, he's steps forward and takes ALL of the credit, via his BBC minions. Yet when it goes "Tits Up" like in this case, he does his infamous Macaverty disappearing act, leaving others to pick up he pieces of his wreckless incompetence.

A vile, cowardly Socialist, caring not one jot about any tragic consequences of his misguided actions, but interested only, in public kudos for his loathsome, despicable self.

Shameful!

Nickie Goomba said...

I think you're being too generous in mentioning "Brown" and the phrase "mental stability" in the same post.

Barking Spider said...

Absolutely, Teresa, rather them than all the troops we're losing and all the civilians being killed in "collateral damage"!

Barking Spider said...

Thanks, Opie, Brown is just another selfish moron who cares nothing for other people's lives!

Barking Spider said...

The ingratiation to Obama makes sense to me, TCL, and he is also desperate to impress people here.....oops, instead we get another Brown mess!

Barking Spider said...

True, OR, I would like to see him kept in place for that very reason but it IS rather disturbing to know that this mental twat is making life or death decisions.

Barking Spider said...

Thanks, AOM, this guy really wasn't worth it - he was only looking for glory and to hell with everyone else!

Barking Spider said...

Right you are, VotR, everything Brown touches turns to shit!

Barking Spider said...

Couldn't agree more, GV, but if the negotiations failed, tough, he put himself (and, disgracefully, other people along with him) in that position.

Barking Spider said...

That's it exactly, D&C, he is the nastiest, self-serving piece of work, we've had as PM since.......Tony Blair, except Brown is even worse.

Barking Spider said...

You have a good point there, Nickie, but if he really is being dosed up on banned MAOI's because they are the only medication that works for him, then we are in serious trouble.

Dr. Dave said...

I was a reporter once; I was also a soldier. I had a lot more self worth when I represented my country...which is why I'm no longer a reporter.

Barking Spider said...

There's no answer to that one, Dr. Dave, good on you, mate!
