James is of Iranian descent and speaks fluent Pashtun, the main language in
, making him invaluable to the Army which is very short of translators. Neighbours at his £800,000 house in Brighton, said his mother speaks only Farsi, the main language of Afghanistan . Iran
In a recent interview for a Forces magazine, James spoke of the battle for hearts and minds in
. "Any verbal contact is better than no contact," he said. "Patrols help civilians see troops in a good light. If you see a strange man with a gun, you automatically think of him as hostile. If he smiles and asks you how you are doing or for directions, you will think differently of him. Nine out of 10 people start treating me as one of their own and actually help me as much as they possibly can with information when I speak their native language." Afghanistan
Well, maybe that's not the only reason that enemy personnel treat him as "one of their own."
The jihadis are unable to bring down Western civilization on their own. They require the services of traitors in order to accomplish their evil designs.
We must beware of those who would, like Ephialtes of Trachis, provide our enemies with the crucial information that will allow them to succeed.
Traitors, useful idiots, and fellow-travelers.
