"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."

Armed Forces Day

Rogue Gunner  has details of a petition to bring home Danny Fitzsimmons, an ex-Para suffering from PTSD.  Danny is currently in jail in Iraq and facing the death penalty.

Liam Fox:
'Let's silence the negative voices that attack our Armed Forces but gladly enjoy the security and freedom our Armed Forces provide.  Let's say no to the small number of hate filled religious and political extremists who abused freedom of speech to spoil 1 Royal Anglian's Homecoming Parade in Barking [East London].

'While those who criticise our Armed Forces have a right to do so in a democracy, we too, as the moral majority, have a right to take pride in the flag of our nation an emblem of the freedom we hold dear as the true British patriots, and the freedom that most races, cultures, and faiths aspire to.'
The Queen:
"The men and women of our Armed Forces have always been admirable examples of professionalism and courage. Then as now, they perform their duties in often the most difficult and dangerous of circumstances, both at home and overseas."
And so say all of us.
