How Can They Do It?
Do our politicians and our lawyers know nothing about warfare? They have arrested five Royal Marines and charged them with murder! What exactly to they train them and pay them to do? If you send a trained soldier into battle, or into a 'difficult' situation, then you cannot impose civilian rules on them. They are trained to fight. They are trained to kill. They face an enemy who will kill them given an opportunity.
What do they expect from our troops? They cannot go to war with the thought that 'if I get this wrong I could be charged with murder'! It is ridiculous. If you have just lost your best mate in action then frankly you are not acting rationally. They are not out shopping in Windsor on a Saturday morning.
Is it not about time that our lawyers departed to Afghanistan and hunted for the people who have killed over 400 of our soldiers in this utterly pointless war and asked the CPS to charge them! It is that stupid!
How the hell can our soldiers fight a war against a very aggressive enemy with one hand tied behind their backs? I have consistently maintained for a few years now that there is an element of our Political Class/Civil Servants who do not support our armed forces.
They are hell bent on the destruction of the troops and this is just another example of their agenda.
I know that we must maintain a service code of conduct but when soldiers go to war and could be killed then, believe you me, normal ethics disappear. If you are faced with someone trying to kill you then you don't think twice. You kill him/her!
The enemy of the British Army are very safe in the knowledge that if they are captured then the British Army have so many rules to observe that frankly they will have laugh at us. So many have donned friendly uniform and then reneged on the deal it is not surprising that they are not trusted.
Our problem is that the British Army face not only the Afghan warlords, who have not actually lost an ounce of their power since the joint British/American forces invaded their territory, but they are being stabbed in the back by the British establishment...as ever!
The enemy is not in Afghanistan it is actually in Islington, Tower Hamlets and surrounding suburbs. Most of them travel into Westmonster by bicycle!
