A former SAS sergeant is to be investigated over claims he shot dead dying enemy soldiers after an ambush in Iraq. The revelations are contained in a book by the 42-year-old from Edinburgh.

The killings were carried out on the Syrian border in 2003 after an ambush in which a number of Iraqi soldiers were killed but at least three were fatally wounded. The soldier told the Mail on Sunday he shot dead at least two of the men.

The Geneva Convention and British military law prohibit such actions but the soldier has now revealed he is to face an investigation by military police.

      For doing the dirty work for the Government and mercy killing these terrorists he is to be given no mercy like Sgt Blackman. The politicians put this courageous man in this impossible position and they must take some responsibility for these actions. Presumably as their wounds were such that they were incapacitated and so they should be left to die without sustenance or medical aid as that is not the job they were there for and to take time to tender some care to the enemy would take them away from their duty to look after their own safety.
      Would the enemy have done the same ? YOU BET THEY WOULD !
