Grdn: "Brown rejects claim UK troops lacked proper kit"

Difficult to say,really,as I don't know much about military matters. But ....our troops in Afghanistan being killed and maimed because the right kind of bomb-proof vehicles are STILL not available ?? Chinook helos that MOD bought 8 or ten years ago STILL unable to fly because MOD won't pay the USA for the right operating software ?? .50 calibre Browning heavy machine-gun ammunition,made in Pakistan and bought by MOD "on the cheap" only permits single-shot ,not automatic fire ?? You couldn't make it up,Mr Brown !!
But ......The Taleban seem to be managing quite well with AK47 rifles,RPGs,and home-made bombs ; now,why is that,I wonder ?? Is there a lesson here,Mr Brown ?? Sometimes,it's the simplest things that work the best.....

Funny that everyone you see has brought their own kit to some extent.
Yeah but to be fair thats always happened. Not that I agree that the troops are getting the right equipment in sufficient numbers!!!
