Mon 06th April 2000Hrs.
As the death toll rises in Afghanistan,Dispatches asks the senior military commanders in charge of the campaign whether they are engaged in mission impossible.
Ch4 are quite good at these docus so this should be interesting to hear what our bosses have to say,or spin.
Opinions chaps?

Are they ****. The last dispatches was a load of bullshit in my opinion. The chap presenting it spent about 10 minutes complaining that Boris, A) Planted to many tree's in london, B) Used his "influence" to help someone get a load of tree's planted outside an office. (taxpayer wasn't going to pay for these tree's i might add)

What a load of urine

Of course the Mission is Impossible if the Labour Government will not pay the full Wack for the wars they have committed Her Majesty's Armed Forces too.
The Troops on the ground are Paying the Full Wack in Blood, Broken Bodies and Mental Health.

Turning London into a Grate Forestte of yore would be fantastic. The Queen could live in a treehouse and hunt bankers from horseback, chasing them with a hullabaloo and a tally ho across the City before cornering them in some dark thicket near Paddington and poking them with stiff twigs until they cried.

I've noticed the quality of dispatches has decreased recently, I noticed it with the anti-Boris and anti-Labour editions (the one about how the government wastes our money). It appears the sensationalist daily mail tabloid journalism has permeated the series. It’s not that documentary doesn’t have valid points or a correct baseline argument, it’s just the way they edit everything to fir their “view” (not analysis) of events.

It’s the Michael Moore effect….

Sir Jock Pillock, 'we could not deal with requests' within 24 hours. Or at least not without getting political authority. So if you were there getting your arrse kicked. Tough.

Would Sir Jock fly an aircraft he thought unsafe?

If he wouldn't then why should he expect tps to go out in vehicles they consider unsafe?

They are not pressing home te questions, why don't they challenge many of this lies er sorry resposes????

I see even the US commander was suprised that we were using snatch landies.

I think what he wanted to say was that he thought we were ****ing insane to even get in one in Afghanistan never mind go on a patrol in one

I thought the programme was generally good, and shows everyone what an arrogant tw*t Sir Jock Strap is.

And where did all this "we are in Helmand to fight for the security of UK interests" come from. Some one needs to tell us, as I was on OPTAG literally 2 weeks ago and still got told its to "to provide security for Afghanistan, to allow reconstruction". Oh, and we are not allow to call them Talban anymore.

And another thing,

I suggest Sir Jock Strap pulls out his Afghan TAMS and looks in the pronounciation section, for the town of Musa Qa'leh. F**king tw*t!!!!

I'm sure a Moussaka ah La, is a Greek dish :D


:twisted:

Interesting to see that the US Commanders as well are not afraid to admit were in deep doodoo down there whereas most of the Brit ones are,I was amazed at the officer who rang a motor parts factory in the UK to try & get springs for his vehicles.

Watched it. It was quite good. Old CO of 3 Para "blaming senior officers".

An officer on the ground calling a manufacturer of parts for his vehicles directly as he was getting pi55ed off with Whitehall bureaucrats arguing the toss when requests had been submitted. He dug the name of said manufacturer from a damaged item traced his details and called via satellite phone direct and asked if he could produce these items once price was agreed (the things you dont hear about).

Air Chief Marshall Jockie Mcpooplop evading questions.

Impressed with Defence Secretary. Not as smug as his predecessors.
