Military top brass don’t want you to see war movie showing hero killed in botched rescue bid: Defence chiefs attempt to block film about death of British soldier in Afghanistan. Defence chiefs have attempted to block the production of a new film about the death of a British Paratrooper in Afghanistan – because it portrays how the RAF botched a rescue mission. Once again – ‘Lions Led By Donkeys.’Corporal Mark Wright died in September 2006 after becoming stranded in an unmarked minefield during a mission against Taliban fighters near the strategically important Kajaki Dam in Helmand province. But tragedy struck when a Chinook helicopter sent to rescue Cpl Wright and other British soldiers set off mines in the area as it attempted to land, causing him fatal injuries and injuring others. Below: Paratrooper Corporal Mark Wright The Ministry of Defence was heavily criticised at the inquest into Cpl Wright’s death in 2009, with the coroner saying officials should ‘hang their heads in shame’ over the failure to send a properly equipped aircraft. Now the incident has been depicted in a new film, Kajaki: A True Story, which will be released next month. The movie, which stars Game Of Thrones actor Mark Stanley as a medic who tries to save Cpl Wright, is backed by Help For Heroes and other military charities which will receive a percentage of the box office takings. But the makers have told The Mail on Sunday that they were blocked in their attempts to research key parts of the story, because MoD officials refused permission to speak to any of the air crew involved. Defence chiefs attempt to block film about death of British Paratrooper in AfghanistanWhen the report of the Coroner’s inquest was issued in October 2008, I like many others wanted those responsible to be hung, drawn, and quartered. Those responsible being British Politician’s as well as very senior Top Brass who at the time, couldn’t organise a piss up in a brewery! The Coroners Report in full Part of which, I would like to highlight, and add a hearty B.Z. “The actions of the US personnel who flew into the minefield is without doubt heroism of the highest order, by the specialist rescue and recovery team. Those who survived owe their lives to the Americans.”
23rd of October 2014: British commanders have given a damning assessment of the military campaign in Afghanistan, admitting that at times troops were so stretched there was a risk they would be ‘massacred!’ Documentary: “Afghanistan: The Lion’s Last Roar?” Is being shown on BBC2 on Sunday, October 26 at 9pm and Sunday, November 2 at 9pm. For those who are able, please watch it and weep tears of rage… And cast your mind back to the Socialist Labour Government who allowed our Armed Forces to fight undermanned, under paid, under armed, and with their hands tied behind their backs. All the while forcing additional severe cuts to military spending.
Yours ‘With Venom & Hatred In My Heart Towards Every Socialist Politician’ Aye.
