There is an alliance called NATO. It is comprised of most of the advanced countries in the Western World. The key word in the previous sentence is
alliance, the meaning of which is below;
Allliance - an association formed for mutual benefit.
The word is a derivation of Allied, which is defined as follows;
Allied - Joined together in alliance; working together; related
All of these countries have armed forces, and all of them have suffered during warfare across the years.
The constant sniping, bickering and downright grossly insulting posts about armed forces FROM ALL SIDES in this forum is an insult to those who have
died for their countries, and its needs to stop.
Yes, we our all proud of of countries forces, but some of the threads I've read recently have turned into degenerate territorial pissing that gets no
where, and makes the forum unreadable.
Valid criticism backed up by logical argument is fine, but sniping for the sake of it is pointless.
If this forum is about quailty debate then the message I'm trying to put across is a simple one. Check your egos at the door, and if you have nothing
beneficial to say, don't say it.
