Cuts

Army / T.A.  and the defence cuts, any views fro / against.
I have fairly balanced views as i was in the TA many moons ago but things have improved an awful since my days.
I know that a lot of TA are in conflicts now and doing a brilliant job but surely to train them up to a regular would cost as much as keeoing the army in the first place.
What a fucked up country we live in eh ?

I think its an absolute fucking disgrace, and a slap in the face of our military personel, of the past, and the present. The way they have disbanded full regiments with 100s of years of history at the drop of a hat, and to save what?, fucking pennies in the grand scheme of things compared to the billions we waste on other shite schemes and quangos. the amount of money wasted on the mobilty scheme each year for a start, fucking billions, the list is endless, country is absolutely fucked .

Add the fact that we can disband loyal men and women wiilling to die for their country and yet our unelected few send billions to places like pakistan to train their fucking terrorists and aid their nuclear involvrment.

Not wishing to get too political here, but despite the myth of the tories been a friend of the military they have always been shit when it comes to funding the forces, last time they were in they cut like fuck and now the same, we aint even got a fucking aircraft carrier so fuck knows what we would do if another falklands was to happen now, maybe ask the french if we could borrow one.

I always tread carefully in this area especially now that I have lived in the US over 20 years but the Tories remind me of the Republicans here they don't give a toss about the squaddies especially once there back from serving the country in getting jobs, health benefits and pensions, but when it comes to the hoorays in the officer core they get well looked after and also the defense contractors of course (jobs for the boys).
