'Half the Army wants to quit'
Almost half the British Army regularly considers quitting, a new survey reveals.
The first survey of attitudes across the Army, Navy and RAF revealed alarming concerns over morale, equipment and pay.
The Ministry of Defence research, which involved more than 24,000 military personnel, found 47 per cent of soldiers and army officers periodically
considered handing in their resignation.
The proportion was the same among Royal Navy personnel, while the figure was 37 per cent in the Royal Marines and 44 per cent in the RAF.
That is a very high level of dissatisfaction. If the SHTF will the people still in those forces be prepared to fire on members of the public when they
have that little commitment to the job? What will they do if that many walk away and no one wants to take the place of those numbers?
Is this the reason for the development of robot solders? Is that the future of the armed forces?
