A colleague has pointed out that photos of British troops killed in Afghanistan are appearing on jihadist websites. Click here, for instance, and scroll down. The original poster praises the 'mighty warriors of Taliban' and talks of their courageousness. He uses derogatory names and titles for the fallen British soldiers. When their names are written, they are proceeded with, “Allah's damned enemy X”. All others praise the work of the Taliban and pray for more death inflicted on the foreign troops. There is nothing too sophisticated here. But do the families of the dead troops realise these images are being used this way? Is this an occupational hazard of digital media to which everyone must adapt?
