RIP Drummer Lee Rigby

Ex Bootneck has a post up at The Mellow Jihadi about the Queen's Soldier brutally murdered by two animals who deserve no more than a short drop and a sudden stop.Drummer Lee 'Riggers' Rigby, 2nd Battalion, The Royal Regiment of Fusiliers. Loving husband and father to two year old Jack. 



Farewell my brother. May you rest in peace and may God bestow his grace upon your family and your mates. By all that we hold dear your sacrifice will not be in vain. The monsters will be destroyed and your child shall grow up in a better world.

It was an amazing act of savagery. I wonder what changes the peaceful folks of that religion have in their future...

Agreed NFO.

It's a great question NavyOne. I think you may have a better grasp on the answer than many. BTW, thanks for putting Ex Bootneck on your blog. That man is a treasure.

Agreed Blue.

You're a good woman Brighid and I know his family and mates are grateful.
