Spanish mission in Afghanistan: why sending a heavy armored vehicle when you can send an improper vehicle?

martes, octubre 02, 2007

Spanish soldiers in Aghanistan are very angry. The reason? The minister (and the High Command) insists in sending the BMR, a vehicle which can resist shooting but not heavy artillery (above), instead of one of the heavy armoured vehicles, the Pizarro, pictured below.

Why? Because the Government does not like them pictured in this mission as they have called it a “mission of peace”.

And what are several more soldiers killed?

Oops, I’m really angry today…
