All soldiers shares something in common., regardless if british, swedes, australians, viets, russians, china, iranians, americans, etc.
And that is a belief in protecting their loved ones and mankind.
It is often the policies of rulers that twisted those aims of the people for their own selfish agendas, that we set our rifle sights brother upon brother.
It is one thing for a regiment or a soldier to be de-comissioned or disbanded if they had done grevious wrong, and should rightfully face justice.
But it is quite another, to be disbanded, when none had any wrong, at the expense of state policies and the crimes of others that ignores the history of unparellel courage by men whom believed in what they are doing.
In this march, every soldier, from the astronaut to the general duties serviceman of the world, shares and commiserate with the fate of the illustrious regiments and brave men in military uniform, to be left out in the cold and taken for granted, expendable and be thrown aside when expedient. Every soldier in the world will look upon what is happening in UK for lessons learnt, over the values of loyalty, honour and integrity.edit on 5-7-2012 by SeekerofTruth101 because: (no reason given)

I'm all for the march and will support any way I can but I have one criticism, march on london fine, the politicians party down there and you will get great (or should do) news coverage...........but have forgot what also gets up Joe Publics back, everything is about london, the national stadium, the dome, their upcoming sports day!!!!!
You see and read about our fantastic troops abroad working a hearts and minds strategy to gain the confidence and support of the locals, so what you EvanB and the rest of those who want to march is to do this march around the country and not just london village, you would raise hearts, minds and spirits that you are with the people and we will in return support you with lodgings, funding, food etc

It's not so much that you "tore my assumptions to shreds", I'm actually surprised that you didn't tear a muscle in your arms embarking on that tyrade of typical leftist self righteous arrogance. The fact is you don't have an opinion, and if it is an opinion, then you are in the deepest minority set I have ever seen.

It will be interesting to see how the police react to these demonstrations.
Previously they have policed all anti-cuts demonstrations quite strictly, some would even say with a heavy hand.
Now that they themselves are facing cuts they are begging the public to show support for them, (the police have never been held in as high regard as our Armed Services).
If there is a large groundswell of support for these demonstrations, and very early indications are that there is huge public support, how will the police react?
I would love to see the police turn up for duty as expected and then do an about face and join in with the demonstrators - but I suspect yet another opportunity to get paid time and a half or double time will be too inviting for our law enforcement officers - I sincerely hope I'm proved wrong.
July 28th our soldiers need us! they can not protest against the cuts announced today but we can! They fight for us the least we can do is fight for them. On July 28th we the British people will take over London and show our disgrace at what our government is doing to us putting our lives at risk it's time people YOUR TROOPS NEED YOU! London July28th tell your friend's family everyone you know we can't stand by and let this happen we are being ignored as a whole and this government is taking us further into Europe without our permission we need to put an end to there destruction of the UK everyday they are trying to divide us we need to show true British solidarity together we stand we can and will remove this government
