Court Martial

Post  katertaif on Tue 20 May - 4:31

A British soldier was photographed kneeling by the body of  a Taliban terror fighter giving the thumbs up sign. Now they say he will be disciplined, and possibly Court Martialled. On what grounds?

In the last world war Fighter pilots would waggle their wings or do a victory roll after shooting down an enemy aircraft. What is the difference? Even as recently as the capture of Saddam Hussein, I forget who it was appeared on TV announcing in satisfied tones "We got him"

When the adrenalin is flowing  none of us know how we will react. So what exactly has this soldier done wrong?

When Soldier Lee Rigby was brutally murdered, the killers were openly bragging about it, and now have the gall to plead not guilty and claim POW status. That is what they do to us. When they caught bin Laden he was happily re-running film of his various atrocities. Look at the scenes in Libya, when they hacked up the body of Gaddafi. It's all right for them to behave like that, but we are far too civilised, is that it? Rubbish!!

Our service men and women, are all volunteers they are not milksops, and we wouldn't want them to be. God alone knows of the daily horrors they face. Let's just be glad that is one of ours who will not be coming home in a body bag.

Good morning again badboy

It sounds the sort of thing Bush Junior would have said. having said that, I feel Bush Junior has been given a very bad press. Granted he was under a great deal of pressure after 9/11 to make someone pay, and we know now that Iraq did not at least at that time pose any threat to the west. I still think he acted out of a better motive than Blair. Blair we know actively lied to parliament to get the tories to vote for his war, and that is treason.

Bush, I think was motivated by what he was told was a genuine and credible threat.

Very sadly we now know there was no immediate threat at all, and Iraq is now in a far worse state than it was under Saddam Hussein.
