  • The real cost of war.

    Taken from todays Sunday Times:

    It is all to easy to forget that the real cost of warfare is often paid for with the blood and lives of those who volunteer to shoulder the fighting on behalf of the rest of us. It is a lesson many politicians and citizens should be mindful of when it comes to the welfare of these brave men and women and of those they sometimes leave behind, both in Special Forces and from the regular units. They are flesh and blood and can only stand so much. We are lucky to have them.

    It's even worse when these sacrifices aren't even recognized by many in the military.Just look at what the three SEALs accused of giving a mass murderer a fat lip are going through here in the US.It makes no sense.

        What makes me most angry about the whole thing is when Presidents, Prime Ministers and politicians in general use the term 'We' so casually when sending other people off to these 'Godforsaken' places to lay there lives on the line!! But there, I suppose that is something that politicians have always done whilst living in comfort and luxury themselves! Words are cheap!!
