David Davis (no, I was NOT in the SAS, and I’m NOT that one, I just write on here.)
Read this report from the Barclay Bugle, which contains disgustingly ill-thought-out language from politicians in Westmonster, about the latest preventable military deaths in Afghanistan, which were sustained by the soldiers of an advanced nation, against pre-capitalist barbarians who were getting their (“improvised”) weapons from people whose arses we ought already to have kicked first.
“Deliberate operation” …. if the guys were there “accidentally”, does that make it different?
“….and that the woman soldier, who was serving with the Intelligence Corps, may have been taken along in case female suspects had to be searched.”
This is war. Who the f*** cares who searches you? The bastards are trying to overturn Western Civilisation. (I believe this about them – you may not. So we may have to agree to differ.) Do we owe the politeness of Western Sensibility to our enemies in the minutes when we are trying to kill them for opposing our way of life, so that “female suspects” will be searched by a woman? That bit comes after they have surrendered, as has always been understood in moral polities.
Also, it is not suitable to send women into combat areas. I have always thought this.
Broadly speaking, the governmentist-release-bits could have been written by leftist hand-wringing-bozos who (a) don’t want to be associated with this business, and (b) agree with the “Tali Ban”, whatever that might be (I don’t know anyway, but if it shoots at us, then it’s the enemy as that’s a sort of definition) and seem to think its acts to be a sort of unavoidable plague.
Libertarians are of course not in favour of “State” armed forces, knowing these to be less efficient and more badly-planned and led than proper ones. However, the British version is the nearest in most circumstances to the real thing, with the possible exception of the Israelis. If the British are doing some fighting, even under Zanu-Laborg (which has not yet fully managed to trash the Forces as an Institution but is still trying hard even at the end of its life) then we are probably in the right.
