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.

My personal opinion is that 100% of the UK foreign aid budget should be diverted to our armed forces - who provide the best and most direct foreign aid where and when needed all over the world every year, saving thousands of lives and killing no-one.

But I accept not all would agree.

I don't think I've ever seen a thread where I've wanted to give so many flags and stars..

I am 100% behind this action, and more.

If my memory serves me right, I think the last time the army marched on London was around the time of the civil war..

And we all know what happened to Charlie...

But at that time, there was two armies..

This time there is one.. and only one.. The British army.

Has anyone noticed how, just a few days ago, the UK celebrated "Armed Forces Day", yet here we are looking down the barrel of a governmental gun...

I bet these swine in their purple carpeted corridoors knew about this plan before armed forces day.. but they did not want to say anything in order to allow a peaceful and happy time for everyone to remember when we had armed forces.. before they were swept under the carpet.

Because of where I live, I see many men with lost limbs and to hear the news in this thread, these guys have lost a lot more than just a part of themselves. They're losing what they fought for, what they believed in, what they thought was right.

Doing my best now to spread the word.. It's all i can do. I do come from a military background. Have a great uncle listed on the big memorial at Plymouth hoe.. died in a submarine WW2.

Good luck lads.. stick it to 'em.. It's the only language they understand.. they don't like it up 'em..

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

Wolfie

'down below, the winter boys are freezing in their spam tins' t.dolby one of our submarines.

i would say there is another army but they're not marching. they're the financial terrorists who have raped virtually all citizens to enjoy benefits and luxuries far beyond the reach of the many.

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.

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.



I can type, it's what I do for a living, running my own business.

I clearly do have an opinion, which I expressed in that post. What part of that "tirade" did you actually read?

I am obviously not in the "deepest minority" either, as seen by the many hundreds of thousands of genuine protesters who have made their opinions clear through gathering and marching in the city of London. I very much doubt those many thousands of students think they are "rich scum", and I definitely don't think the teachers, nurses, unions, police and so on think that they are "foreign" scroungers either.

Lets face facts here, you insulted many hundreds of thousands of people and described everyone as "foreign" or "rich" or "scum", suggesting that no protest before this one has been valid. You were wrong, I pointed that out, and now you're complaining about it.

As for being left-wing - absolutely! Remember, it's your precious right-wing government doing this to our armed forces.

I'm assuming that you think I'm left-wing because I think students should be educated, teachers should be paid reasonably, the NHS should be supported, the fire service should not be cut, disabled people should be assisted, kids in care should be protected, and the wealthiest in our society who have been consistently sneaking their money around and letting us pay their share of tax for them should be pursued?

Or am I left-wing because I don't think the riots were perpetrated exclusively by black people?

Is it "typically leftist" to support the military? I don't think so.

I think you and he got off to a bad start as you totally missed the sarcasm of his post, which he did go into with mrlizard on the first page. You simply jumped in with both feet and this is how you two are now bickering and derailing this thread.

Go back and look..

TBH I expect a few nutjobs to try and cause trouble, but our SNCO's past and present will be taking control.. You do not mess with them!.. However... I think the police will know better than to start any crap with us as quite a few of their numbers are ex forces themselves...

But...

We have dealt with riots in Northern Ireland and terrorism, we have fought wars across the globe, we are disciplined, highly trained and experienced and will defend ourselves and each other if needed.....................

The 24th for the countrywide thing.. The date for London is TBA.. However if the people want to take over their capital city on the 28th, who am I to argue??


Just to add, the organisers are talking to the police to arrange the demo so will update when that is completed..
