In April 2012 I deployed to Helmand Province an idealistic British soldier having believed the media narrative of the conflict we were engaged in thereSix months later I left Camp Bastion knowing I had been party to a criminal enterprise managed by incompetent generals, corrupt politicians and merciless profiteers. The aim of this criminal enterprise was profit and power - profit for the arms suppliers, logistics contractors, military contractors and power for the generals, politicians and civil servants dishing out these billion dollar contracts. 

It was a criminal enterprise run with no regard to the stated mission and without thought to the cost in blood, misery or suffering - regardless of whether it was British, American or Afghan, military or civilian. 

It is my intention to seek genuine accountability of the most senior British command - military and political - who I believe to have acted criminally, breaking military, civilian and international law. 

Note: My 1994 Bolivian trip1997 visit to Yemen, 1999-04 Moroccan travels and my 2006 Colombian experiences that I am also reporting here were all prior to and entirely seperate from my 2009 to 2013 service with the British army.
