A soldier is killed. 
UK is shocked.
BBC commented heavily on the dead soldier. 
“Lee was lovely. He would do anything for anybody, he always looked after his sisters and always protected them. He took a ‘big brother’ role with everyone”
“He wanted to live life and enjoy himself”
“All he wanted to do from when he was a little boy, was be in the Army”
“An extremely popular and witty soldier”
“He was a passionate and life-long Manchester United fan”
“someone who would be “sorely missed by all who knew him”
I understand hyposciry and narrow-mindedness are inherent characteristics of the British in general (and many countries have suffered a lot by that), but couldn’t we at least be SOMEWHAT serious?
Yes, a murder has been commited and that is horrible. But stay there. What do we need the other stuff for?
What does it even mean that “all he wanted was to be a soldier”?!? Do we know that soldiers kille people? Is that good? Is (offensive) war just? Is (offensive) war right? Is (offensive) war good? Does Britain has ANY right to be in Afganistan at this time? Does Britain has ANY right to kill people (including women and children) in any other country whatsoever? Isn’t anyone killed in Afganistan “witty”, “passionate” or “lovely”? Wouldn’t anyone killed in Afganistan by british troops be “missed”?
Hell, I honestly think that we would even find a Manchester United fan among those Afgans killed!!!
