I hardly think that the British public are so dense as to allow this temporary situation to be the wool over thier eyes, in terms of keeping one eye
on the domestic political structure of the UK. Those of us who follow politics in the UK are actually fairly astute, and can seperate these fleeting
moments of madness internationally, from what happens in our nation quite easily.
As I mentioned, I cannot stand Mr Cameron, and no matter what he does about the Argentine attitude to the Falklands, I will never vote for him, and I
know very many people who voted for him once, who will never do so again.
I also have to say that your assertion that unless one is a card carrying member of the military, then they shouldnt talk about military matters is
somewhat idiotic. In this country we have the richest military tradition in the western world, and involved or not on a personal basis, most everyone
has a relative who was, or is involved in military matters. Also, some of us are actually capable of researching the things that we have no personal
involvement in, rather than remaining ignorant just because we are not all wearing warpaint right now.
The idea that one must be in a situation to comment on it, is one of the most ridiculous I have heard. I hear US residents saying to me, on this very
site "You live in the UK, you have no worthy opinion" about matters pertaining to the US. Ridiculous. This is the same type of foolishness, and it
does not stand.
