An unwitting British soldier who posed for a photograph with a rogue Afghan policeman was shot dead by him seconds later.

Corporal Brent McCarthy, 25, is pictured with a member of the Afghan Uniformed Police just moments before the shooting.

After the snap was taken the gunman and another accomplice turned their weapons on the RAF policeman.

Not one more drop of blood, not one more penny of treasure, for that hellhole.

Seems like Hell is getting much, much closer to Earth these days.

I expect one day in the very near future, it’s going to be here.

What a terrible waste.

It is here already, we are just pretending it’s way over there. Time to wake up before we are eliminated by our “friends”.

“The Afghan national pictured was shot dead by a British guardsman as he tried to flee the scene.”

The "many" whom you say are posting pics, or images, cartoons and material from copyright restricted or blocked sites, are placing Free Republic at risk of copyright infringement lawsuits which in turn will lead to "many" substantial bills from attorneys, often payable in advance.

Your pic from the Daily Mail UK must be removed because material from the Daily Mail UK has to be excerpted, yet photos and cartoons are impossible to excerpt, thus they cannot be posted to Free Republic.

Should’ve helped the Soviets there in the 1980s.

Why do the Afghans in the pictures look like they have gone to the bathroom in their pants? Weird pictures.

Because the guy knew he was about to be in a gunfight against soldiers and most likely, not live to celebrate it.

I was reading a forum last night from men that were fixing to deploy and they were asking questions of multiple deployment ops and the one thing they advised was, “Smile at the afghans... let them think you like them... take care of the few that help you but never turn your back on them for even a second... because they guy that is smiling with you for a photo could be thinking about killing you”.

“oddly , the article does not mention what happened to the two killers”.......

The Afghan shooter met his Waterloo when he tried to escape the area. Dead!

they were anticipating their own imminent deaths , yet they had been brainwashed into believing the muz martyr bullshit , so they pissed themselves .
There’s a good rule of engagement (ROE) : if they see anyone pissing themselves , just shoot them on the spot .

Afghanistan will never be a decent place on earth until the majority of male muslims there have been totally wiped out . They need to be found crawling out from under the ruins with white rags tied to sticks . Thereafter the survivors need to be counseled in Christianity or Buddhism .
Only an unavoidable iron fist will correct that utterly corrupted place . Not this ‘touchie-feelie’ COIN stuff.
Vast mountains you say ? hard to get to the Taliban in their fastnesses ? FAE’s ( google it ) Works like a charm .
And no safe zones over the border in Pak . There needs to be a declared free fire zone 50 miles deep . If it walks it dies . This is the way to win in Afghanistan
