All over the news here in Denmark. Three AFVs... bloke in the cuppola of the middle one mounts his MG (Mech Inf). According to one paper locks, loads, sights on his mucker in jest, the rest is obvious... Colonel of the Jægerkorps (Para plus kinda Reg) is claiming that the Danish troops are not experienced or mature enough (probably because basic training is down to 2 days with fag breaks now). Government and any officer they can put in front of a camera at the moment is claiming the opposite... highly trained troops - average age 29 & average experience 10 years. Me... it's an ND of the worst kind... and no discipline whatsoever... (that said - was v.impressed in Basra) Any language acceptable exept RIP And while I'm at it - read this by Khaled Hossini the other day (not by him but that's where I got it) It's an Afghan saying - "The only enemy the Afghans can not beat is themselves." - Discuss that if you like, but know your history. This I hope will be the only RIP on the thread. RIP - F'in shame.
