No Way to Treat a Wounded Warrior

In Britian it seems that soldiers wounded on the battlefield are sent home, but put in a regular hospital! The Telegraph reported an incident in which an angry Muslim verbally accousted a paratrooper just back from Afganistan and wounded in bed! The article states:

A paratrooper wounded in Afghanistan was threatened by a Muslim visitor to the British hospital where he is recovering.

Seriously wounded soldiers have complained that they are worried about their safety after being left on wards that are open to the public at Selly Oak Hospital, Birmingham.

On one occasion a member of the Parachute Regiment, still dressed in his combat uniform after being evacuated from Afghanistan, was accosted by a Muslim over the British involvement in the country.

"You have been killing my Muslim brothers in Afghanistan," the man said during a tirade.

An officer in their military states, "It also does not do morale much good knowing that within 18 hours of being wounded you could wake up in a NHS hospital with a mental health patient on one side and an incontinent geriatric on the other."

I think the Blair government, as good an ally as it has been to us in the War on Terror, has much to answer for if this is how they treat their battlefield wounded.

"Look, disaster is spreading from nation to nation, a mighty tempest is rising from the far ends of the earth." Jeremiah 25:32. There are many modern day Jeremiahs in our staunch ally of the United Kingdom and elsewhere, who cry out in the wilderness of leftism. We conservatives in the United States need to support them.

Hi. Do you know which states in the US have more conservative people, and which ones contain more open minded people?

As a member of the British Army can I just say thanks for posting this news. All is not lost though - we have been given an extra £10 a day to spend on 'phone calls and my family gets subsidised travel to see me in hospital if I am injured. It makes me so proud. The most depressing part would be being evacuated to Birmingham, it is a dump!

This story blew my mind! I can't believe that they're put in civilian hospitals on general wards like that. Yikes. The liberals are a the helm!

Attention all Christian congregations regarding the Pope's comments on Islam . If you live in an area with an active Muslim population, it may be wise to review your Church's security, fire-precautions and insurance cover:
