Today's Big News?

Shot UK soldier dies in hospital

So, let me get this straight. We send some soldiers to a war zone and one of them gets shot and dies.

OK, it's sad for his friends and family, but it's not really entirely surprising is it?

So, why is this big news? I'm sure there must have been lots of afghans die too, why not report about each one of them individually too?

If we're going to stick our oar into another countries politics and go in all guns blazing to enforce regime change, because we'd really like Osama Bin Ladens head on a stick, then surely it a forgone conclusion that some people aren't going to be happy with us doing this and might actually shoot back?
