[align=center][/align] I don't know much about XV Psyops group, but a thought came to me that as a result of other people's incompetence, naivety of history and international affairs, and recent events in the gulf, the British Brand has been diminished morally and actually on the world stage. Sometimes history calls upon people to take ridiculous risk to prove their metal, and by extension this can have resonance far beyond them. At other times clever psychology is required. At yet others a combination of the two. While we no longer live in the medieval period, concepts of honour still hold stay, the willingness to sacrifice that which we have in this world, and even to shorten our stay within it, with no real knowledge beyond faith about what might lie beyond. In a world lacking morality and courage such actions are as diamonds amongst the lead of our sins, and have worth far in excess of the stones we dig from the ground, but perhaps share the same longevity in the annals of history. Whenever I see the image above I am minded of the myth of 'Herne the Hunter' of whom it is said... "Herne was the favourite huntsman of Richard the Second. Mortally wounded while saving his master from a stag at bay, he was miraculously cured by a stranger, who tied the antlers of a dead stag to the dying man's brow. He claimed in payment all Herne's skill in venery. Crazed by the loss of that skill in the craft he loved, Herne fled to the forest, where a pedlar found his horned corpse hanging from an oak. But every night he returned at the head of a spectral hunt to harry the Windsor game as of old." This post is purposefully obtuse, but I think I just wanted to put it to state that in a world where we allow the incompetent and morally bankrupt to lead us, its sometimes falls on exceptional individuals (albeit with similar flaws to us all) to recover ground that was lost so cheaply. God's speed, and may Allah preserve.
