"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Rogue Gunner Says It All


If you haven't already visited Rogue Gunner's blog, here's the link to the blog and the full article:
"On a day when the bodies of four UK servicemen are flown back home after making the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan the MOD are in the Court of Appeal. Why may you ask are they costing the British tax payer tens of thousands in legal bills? To make the lives of our young injured servicemen some who have horrific injuries better? No, they are once again making our Heroes fight another battle for adequate compensation that must last them for the rest of their lives.
...
Sometimes your longest War begins when you hand your uniform in and rejoin civvie street."
That's from a man who's been in the thick of war and knows what it's like. He also knows what it's like to be on civvie street with PTSD and no support. We ask so much of our Armed Forces; is it too much for us to demand our government treats them better? So many charities are springing up now in an effort to fill the void left by government. Here's a link to Help for Heroes.

  1. It's a deep shame on the country and a terrible indictment of this government that "So many charities are springing up in an effort to fill the void left by government." I'm sure that there is some truth in Rogue Gunner's accusation 'The Red Robot and all mentally ill Socialists hate the military plain and simple.'

  2. That's true Edgar, I'm glad you went over and read it. One of the founding principles of the Labour Party was pacificism. Every time 'we' vote Labour, 'we' vote against our own country.

  3. I once sat next to a Captian who really crunched an aeroplane onto the runway. he turned to me and said "We made a right horlicks of that". I replied "We, Captain?".
    This Government is a showcase for Socialism that competes with Stalin and Lenin, winning hands down.
