I have to add that at writing the op I was very pissed off and drunk.. Maybe not the best time to come on ATS!
It's such a difficult one when it comes to military service, i do understand your frustrations and have been there myself. Put it this way, if i had the knowlegde i have now when i joined as a junior at 16, i'm not sure i'd have joined up.
Even in N. Ireland, whilst we could argue all day about if we should be there or not, the situation was as it was and if we hadn't done our job over there, i know of many many times that the UK civillians would have had to have dealt with a lot more horrific incidents. Even without the corrupt goverments sending us to war for money/resources/image, there will always be total nutjobs out there wanting do do harm to the people of our country. Thats where we are indeed needed, and you are more respected by the public than you think.
You only have to take a look at the Wooton Basset parades, and towns where their soldiers are returning or going off to war, there is most definately a lot of support for you guys. Not the government, but you guys, yes.
