So what if they are

Pinko journalist Jon Stephenson has revealed that some of our SAS soldiers may be back in Afghanistan on a seek and destroy mission against the Taliban scum who killed our soldiers.

So what if they are…I hope they get them.

The Prime Minister however says that is not true…

Prime Minister John Key has denied a report that SAS troops have been re-deployed to Afghanistan to carry out a “revenge mission” for the killings of five New Zealand soldiers.

Mr Key was responding to claims by Jon Stephenson, Radio New Zealand’s correspondent in Afghanistan, that sources in the US-led coalition in Afghanistan and the New Zealand SAS community had told him SAS troops were going back to attack.

“Not true. Completely wrong,” the Prime Minister said.

“As I’ve indicated earlier there’s a small group who are there and that group is not in a combat role. They are there in terms of providing logistics and planning support.”

Stephenson said the troops would be in addition to the ones that Mr Key said had been sent to gather intelligence.

He said he had been told they would be playing an “active part in the hunt” for the insurgents.

“I’ve been told that the mission of these troops is not to gather intelligence but to help carry out the strikes or the raids on those insurgents that killed the PRT (Provincial Reconstruction Team) soldiers in August.”

Again, So what if  they are. All power to them. The Taliban are scum and the more we put in the ground the better.
