It's easy to be impressed by acts of strength and bravery.

However the real question is why were they even there, why do people continue to risk their lives for a cowardly criminal cabal that orchestrate wars and then lie to both civilian and military about why it is happening.

Let me ask you this Don, does it not make you feel sick to your stomach every year when you watch someone like Blair or Cameron or whoever the current Pm is lay a wreath on the cenotaph, does the audacity of the criminal scum that sent people to risk & lose  their lives on lie after lie not make you want to vomit. I still purchase a poppy every year to help the veterans but I can't watch the scum bag pms on tv anymore on remebrence sunday.

You know Blair was given immunity from prosecution before the chilcot enquiry-soldiers were not they still tried to bring prosecutions against many of them-not sure how it ended.

Look at the way the government have shat on the soldiers that were in Northern Ireland.

We should never have been in Afghanistan.

You know what it says on the cenotaph -"the glorious dead" -nothing glorious about death.

The times change. Look back at the enlistment offices during WW1 and WW2. There were thousands of men queued up around the block trying to get in. There were males who weren't yet old enough and men who's career's protected them against enrollment, trying to get in. It was never considered as a job, but as a duty. However, these were men with a good reason to fight. The 'want' to fight for something went hand in hand with the 'need' to fight. We had a country worth fighting for.

Fast forward to today...is there any wonder the same desire is not there? 

Go fight in foreign lands and come back to a country you don't even recognise. You're right that there is nothing glorious about death. Not today anyway. I imagine that the statement did hold true though...at some point...to a degree. Maybe in days that we will never see again.

Don, if you are ever on zoom before the Americans log in have a conversation with Greg Honda.

Amongst our American cousins the most red pill &  awake person for you to have a conversation with is General Kenobi.

I will...thanks BS. Hoping to be on zoom shortly - got my headphones and webcam all ready - the headphones light up and everything!!! Lol. Just a little temporary issue means I might be another week or so.

Just let us know when you're ready to test everything and we'll go from there.  https://zoom.us/test is a site that you can confirm that you computer is up to speed.

Check DK,  Like many things in life, the need for police, firefighters and military are no longer seen as necessary ... until the next emergency occurs and you are in need of their services, their immediate services.

Thanks Greg. 

I'm all tested up to speed (I think) - and looking forward to getting on it, so I'll give you a shout.

The only thing I'm worried about is seeing you lots ugly mugs glaring back at me!!! 🤣  

I'm easy to spot....I look like 'The Rock'.
