Censorship at War
Everyone knows how the World Wide Web makes censorship a little more difficult, and it appears that some harsh views about the RAF in Afghanistan have leaked through. The many blogs about the current wars being fought in the Middle East have drawn much comment in the press, but one has to wonder how armed forces are considering dealing with the matter. When one remembers that even letters home have regularly been censored by armed forces in the past, we ought to read these "war blogs" with more circumspection.
