Dead Horse BS: British Army at it again (148* d) RE: BS: British Army at it again 13 Oct 12


It is interesting to see how my words have been interpreted by some on here.
I expect you think that I ate babies and went out of my way to look for trouble in a troubled land.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
As an uninformed soldier in training for Northern Ireland I was under the impression that we were going to meet and fight with the IRA and to protect the rest of the population against them.
It didnt take long for that idea to melt away.
After seeing how the catholic minority were being deprived of decent housing, jobs, and general acceptance into a bigotted society I felt nothing but sympathy for their cause.
The rioters, bombers, murderers and thugs were a different matter.
They were NOT children. They used children as cover, knowing that we could not fire into a crowd where their snipers were taking advantage.
Would you not want to shoot some scum that had just thrown a nail bomb at you and your mates, killing and injuring many?
Would you be happy to know that the bomber went on to be regarded as a hero for planting a device in school grounds that killed one of your colleagues?
Would you like to have seen Bin Laden jailed for a few years then be released and lauded as another Nelson Mandela?
I am not in favour of shooting innocents, but how much better would it have been if some unknown squaddie in WW1 had shot and killed a certain little Austrian corporal?
Just saying - not dreaming about it.
So Guest Martin, get back to your own dream world where Saint Gerry Adams et al reside.

P.S. I find it laughable that you castigate Keith for interpreting my words without permission, yet you have done the very same thing.
