After long time lurking I thought I'd come here for an informed opinion. ( I know, I know ) Also due to the long time lurking I know I'm going to cop a shoeing at the very least, but hopefully it'll be worth it. I'm a civvy, not a wah or a Journo, just a civvy, who grew up around the forces and continues to have an interest in what goes on and where. Now a request if I may be so bold. Below is part of a thread in another forum and I wanted to find out from those that know best if the poster's comments hold any weight. I'm not trying to start a pissing contest or wah my way into the hole. I genuinely want to find out whether this guy knows what he is talking about. I recognise logic / fact behind some of what he says, I just don't actually believe all that he says. Hope you can help.
