And I served too in Healys secret war in Oman, saw my brethren blown to bits, I am sick to death of our armed forces being dragged through the mire by lawyers who think they can make a quick buck by some jumped up charges and accusations 40 or more years after the event, it's totally shamefull.

 

so why the heck don't you just stay in the UK then if you cannot behave in line with law and order

when you are outside UK?

Killing the enemy of all your country and culture stands for is not a war crime

Nothing new to know all knew that US and UK troops slaughter and tortured thousands of innocents.
It's the so called "western democracy".

I guess you are not German Axis or Japanese then....?

I don't doubt anything you say about the terrors, stresses and dislocation from reality that the armed forces must face in combat circumstances and I make no attempt to suggest that I have come close to experiencing that, but the instances in question are not the result of split second calls which had tragic, unintended consequences. These were premeditated, protracted acts of violence against individuals who had no cause to be caught up in them. 

 

I believe (and I desperately want to continue to believe) that the vast majority of our armed forces personnel are as revulsed as I am about these isolated incidents. However this circling of the wagons and declaring that no civilian has the right to question the actions of any armed forces personnel only makes you look as if you condone them. 

There are times when those civilians need to take their blinkers off RR.

Thank you boys for all you have done in keeping us safe ,as for the detectives ,go f yourselves

Really? 

What have they done so special in Iraq? Invading a country side by side with notorious US Liars showing fake photos? 

And left a devastated country paving the way for IS? 

"f" your government! But not the detectives who detected the crimes. Of course the soldiers have to be prosecuted if they are guilty. 😈

No, I was right the first time.

Then please enlighten me. Why am I wrong to think that the British soldiers implicated in the death of Baha Mousa should be held to account? Why is it blinkered of me to feel dissatisfied at their being free to walk the streets of Britain?

I cannot possibly reply to that as i know nothing about it other than what's in the public domain.

But not the likes of Martin McGuiness I'm guessing?

Nobody stands above the law in our countries

Which civilians are you referring to, the civilians tortured and murdered by members of HM Armed Forces?

 

Or are you less bothered about civilians being tortured and murdered by HM Armed Forces and more offended by civilians who object to these crimes?
