Friendly Fire

The Copenhagen Post

From the Copenhagen Post
"A military spokesperson has confirmed that two Danish soldiers serving in Afghanistan were killed by British fire

Two Danish army privates who died during a firefight with Taliban rebels in Afghanistan in September lost their lives after being hit by British friendly fire, confirmed a highly placed Danish military official in Afghanistan on Sunday.

Although the military investigation into the 26 September deaths of privates Mikkel Keil Sørensen and Thorbjørn Ole Reese is still open, the official said friendly fire had been suspected from the start.

'We knew the day after it happened that it was British friendly fire,' the official, who wished to remain anonymous, told Nyhedsavisen newspaper. 'We found the log number for a British Javelin rocket at the site where Mikkel died.'

Peter Otken, spokesperson for the military's Judge Advocate, gave no offical comment until the investigation was complete.

Denmark currently has 650 soldiers in Afghanistan. Most of them are stationed in Helmand province in southern Afghanistan, where they operate with the British military.

Danish troops also served under British command in Iraq"



Heartfelt condolences to the families of the Danish soldiers ... and sympathy too for the British soldier(s) responsible. I'm sure they are feeling the pain as well and will for a long time.

For what it's worth, I hope that the circumstances are fully investigated and that those responsible for any mistake are held to account.

Furthermore, I see no evidence that our military or government are attempting to cover-up or frustrate any investigation into this occurrence-unlike the way British victims' families have been treated by the U.S. administration in similar circumstances.

Its very sad to hear this and I feel for the soldiers who are responsible however they must be held accountable for their actions. I served 12 years in the British Army and feel there is no real excuse for friendly fire.

I do wish they would not call it friendly fire. Being hit by a rocket is not very friendly is it?

Give the kid a break, he wants to play so bad. Maybe Benzworld is the education that he missed while in high school pretending that he knew everything about everything Maybe something he missed if he ever took a college course and his professor found out that he was full of shit Maybe something he missed in real life because his accessible "friends" have Budweiser as a conduit to reach deep thoughts
That's ok Guage, we understand...

OK guage/Live/RFC you cock-sucking pussy, why don't you answer the question-has the word 'plagiarise' confused you?

Why did you take someone else's comments and post them as your own, you fucking retard?
