WO Brown's widow Mishelle showed great poise and courage at the news conference the Lincs and Winks held today (I saw it on NewsWorld) and said perhaps the most profound thing I've heard in a long time re: the mission in Afghanistan. Asked by a reporter how she felt about the PM's recent comments that we won't beat the Taliban through military means alone, she said:
"There are lots of things you can't beat in life. You can't beat child pornography, you can't beat crime. But do you stop? Do you give up? Absolutely not."
She's a heckuva lady and in my thoughts tonight, along with the families of the other fallen soldiers and the wounded.
