Remember their "don't be a dumb ass" campaign? This one isn't for the blue noses.

British troops to train Kenyan game wardens

Al Shabaab, the militant Islamist group behind the Westgate shopping centre massacre in Nairobi last year, is believed to be one of the key players behind the rise in poaching.

A total of 25 troops from the 3rd Battalion The Rifles will be sent to Nanyuki, 160 miles north of Nairobi, to provide training to Kenyan rangers, but will not be involved in operations against poachers.

Already in the past year, 60 wardens and 38,000 elephants have been killed by poachers as ivory prices spiral.

Last year Prince William urged leaders to save ‘some of the world’s most captivating species’, and Hillary Clinton unveiled a £50million plan to tackle elephant poaching.

This is the kind of military intervention I believe in.

does it matter that

the cops didn't bother to watch Rogers' videos, or bother to check California's gun registry (which is at the point of purchase) to see if he bought any?
