Balls to that, that's telling the facts as they are.
I very much doubt most people can appreciate the difference between cover behind a Sanger on your own and with someone else who quickly becomes a friend on a level few people can appreciate. You're there doing a job and frankly who gives a shit what you do in your personal life? Politicians who are proven to be dishonest and cheat - fair game. They're in a position of trust and responsibility in a totally different way.
The sort of behaviour cheating infers affects politics but means 3/5ths of fuck all when you're the one taking fire because some cheating fucker has said you must.
I hope Wade gets imprisoned and ideally branded as an utter fuckbend in the literal sense.
Personally, Piers Morgan is my mortal enemy for reasons you'll be well aware of. That he's on TV earning a fortune is beyond recompense. He should be living in a box in the arctic with a combat survival tin (webtex, of course so it falls to pieces) and perhaps an anal dildo.
Oh and I considered becoming a Gunner. Fuck me that's hard. I have the utmost respect for those people who have to work so incredibly hard to get into such jobs. I know I couldn't do it.
Warfighting, peace enforcement and peacekeeping are all bollocks to the people outside the military. They think warfighting is like WW2 and peacekeeping is being pretend cops with L85s. Unfortunately the government seem to have a similarly narrow minded view. Gone are the days where soldiers were sacrifieced sacrificed for a critical mission that they could appreciate. We've had such a cake and arse part of governments recently that objectives that would sacrifice lives are secondary to the sock / non stock of the House wine cellar purely due to media attention.
Politicians should be made to sit behind a Sanger with rounds either thudding or pinging before they make a decision to send people into combat for no obvious, in your face reason.
