A balance?

I have no wish to denigrate or criticise or in any way seem to be unkind to the first British journalist Sunday Mirror's Rupert Hamner killed in Afghanistan or his injured cameraman Phillip Coburn. Our thoughts are with their families.
But, Sky News has just spent almost 20 minutes covering of the death of what is effectively "one of their own" in Afghanistan, it wasn't until 10 minutes they almost as an afterthought seemed to remember a US soldier and an Afghan soldier were also killed in the same event.
Has the attrition of allied military personnel become less important now. 
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
