Just a couple of wee ones.
SAS to Afghanistan - hard one, if you have soldiers they need to know how to fight. But this war is a Uncle Remus tar baby and i suspect once in, we will be bleeding over there for a long time... but a least we will be saving the UK and USA from terrorism - not!
Why is the sea killing things? perhaps a balancing is going on. You can't treat the water and Tangaroa like shit and expect them not to fight back, can you? This is happening in many places around the world and meanwhile we whistle away, trying to make money... what a sad way to live.
Are these two stories interrelated?
