i am talking about and it was not 100 years ago.
Unless one has been in a situation like that one can
only pressume what its like.
We ex soldiers had to play by the rules and as Jarrock
said not always in our favour but we grinned and beared it.
Thats what makes the British forces the best in the world
( Probulary ).
But to put any blame on the 15 is utter nonsense.

this subject I think British Armed Forces are doing a great job.
But I can't comprehend why they gave in so early.
Why they walked down the gangplank with their hands in the air.
Why didn't they hide the female soldier or even some of them I mean not all fifteen had to surrender.
And whats this crap about following orders. They've either GOT guns to protect themselves or they haven't.
They were armed for Gods sake didn't they know how to use them.
Because they gave in so easily they've made all service personnel vulnerable around the world. British are now known as easy targets.
I've been talking to a lot of ex squaddies and they feel the same as I do.
"They gave in too easy."
And its not being GUNG HO To defend yourself and your country.
What I say might offend some people but you've shown that we can have a frank exchange of views without resorting to personal abuse and nasty comments.
In my opinion he made the wrong decision allowing these guys to sell their stories, especially as this all coincided with the return to Britain of the four young officers who had been killed in bomb blast.
I think he should resign for his sheer poor judgement

yeah that's it, but he is digging his heels in by all accounts and will not resign no matter what. It's gonna be interesting to see what his statement says and how long this drags on for.
