Subject: RE: BS: Soldiers Convicted of Crimes in NI
On Den's invitation - "Lets compare the discipline of Canadian soldiers in Afghanistan over the same period."

Rather difficult to do Den:
- they haven't been there six years.
- they are on active service, therefore they will not appear before any civilian courts in Afghanistan
- they are unlikely to be driving around for pleasure, hence opportunity for the Afghan Police Speed Cops to charge them is remote.
- they are unlikely to be spending much of their spare time off base, further reducing the opportunity to fall foul of local laws.

So not really comparing apples to apples here are we Den?
