    According to Human Rights lawyers and the media we normally go to all the trouble of taking them back before executing them.
    In fact according to some the British Army has been shooting people out of hand since the gun was invented.
  4. The journo must have migrated from the BBC!! After all most of them think the bulk of the British Army are institutional rapists!!

    Eh, what the hell are you on about? Neither the video reprt or the article never states "we wouldn't hesitate to execute a captive if we thought we couldn't extract him". Or indeed anything else of such nature, just bthat a missing member of 4SCOTS has been found, condition yet unreleased to the public. The only person who tals about execution is some random anonymous poster. Whaddya on about OP?

    errrr... the original one at the top of the page, see vid and article.
  8. Thanks, Im special. Interesting to see that neither the BBC, Telegraph nor Reuters have picked that up yet.
  9. It has. The original report was over three minutes, and I clearly remember the last few words being something like "if British troops can't get out of that situation with their captives, then they will not hesitate to execute them".

    You strike me as a ****ing ******. But since I live to serve, here is some advice.

    Should you ever find yourself in a Court of Law, Tribunal, Court Martial, answering questions put you by Yakuza or any other sort of serious shit, try not to say "I clearly remember the last few words being something like..."

    Because they will ****ing crucify you.

    the yanks used to throw them out of the choppers on the way back - maybe it can be modified as its cruel to expect someone to die by hitting the ground. a pinless grenade would help
