The British armed forces in Afghanistan are not well supplied, as Eureferendum has been telling us over and over again, but this is ridiculous. According to Eureferendum, the Ministry of Defense under Prime Minister Gordon Brown has just ordered 10 million dollars worth of ... "combat dune buggies" for Afghanistan. That oughta scare the daylights out of the Taliban.
According to the Ministry of Defence website:
This is not a joke. Maybe it's a tragedy, but definitely not a joke.
"The Springer dune buggy will be an added capability for troops at Forward Operating Bases in Afghanistan. This contract demonstrates that we're continuing to invest in vehicles for the front line." (italics added)
Let's hope Obama doesn't hear about this.
