every soldier killed or wounded –would they be so ready to declare illegal
With each casualty having to be
paid millions of pounds would they not also have ensured that there was no
shortage of personal armour and close support transport?
the moment Armament firms and associated companies are no doubt being hard
pressed to supply the necessary levels of vital parts in order to prosecute an
extended and illegal war.
