Sad git as I am â I was listening to Radio 4 this morning and caught Gen Mike talking about Iraq. He was asked a question about the state of morale of troops on the ground and somehow managed to totally avoid answering the question and gave some reply concerning how well we were doing on the ground. A couple of points here: a. Can anyone tell me at what rank a military officer looses his military thought process and starts using a politicianâs thought process instead â to the complete exclusion of sound military judgement? b. What is the state of morale on the ground in Iraq? As Darth_Doctrinus mentioned on another thread, 300 member of the PWRR have just handed in the notice after being told they are going back to Iraq â is that a sign of high morale? c. Will Gen Mike ever again be trusted to give the truth or is he going to permanently toe Tony Blairâs (sorry â the Dear Leaderâs) Party Line?
