True, not seen a suit like that since Good Morning Viet NamCan't be faulted for the shininess of his suit, though. Be fair.
You like it? I got it in Hong Kong, home of the shiny green suit.

Fair play to this guy he's lived the dream and deployed. He's earned his right to dine out on that experience, even if it means brainwashing enemies of the state.Here's another one.

Old Gorky boys image harks back to a more innocent age where you could enjoy a man's masculinity by his ability to pose suggestively with firearms, cars, leather waistcoats and switched off laptops.
Jolly nice of the Standard to give out so many personal details as well.Several months later, he's in FHM touting himself as a negotiator having meetings with high level TB.
Well, you know, he's doing what he needs to do to pay the mortgage. Morally, it's not that different from telling that cutie in the bar that you're Red Five.ISTR he got a job a job as a civilian for CJSOTF in AFG. Spent 6 weeks running a printing machine and was sacked.

Putting that phrase into a search engine pretty much narrows it down to himI love reading this kind of thing,it reminds me of the worst CO, I ever served under in any RCT unit. He is now highly regarded as a military historian, having written various books and articles on the Cold War,the nearest he ever got to the 'baddies' was a half day Border visit.
"for over 30 years an Army Officer, has written on many subjects. He holds a Masters Degree in International Relations and a PhD in politics. He is a former Head of British Army Defence Studies. He has worked on the development of principles and theories of Military Intervention. His understanding of military and political possibilities has been enhanced through having been to the places about which he has written, which include Grenada, Iraq, Bosnia, Kosovo, Rwanda, Burundi, Sierra Leone and Afghanistan."
I won't name him but, I never met anyone in the RCT who had a good word for him.
I can't think of any suitable expletive for this man, as a CO he had no redeeming qualities whatsoever. On leaving our Regt, he was posted to the Australian Staff College, he was great on theory but his man management skills and, knowledge of Logistics could be written on the back of a postage stamp.Putting that phrase into a search engine pretty much narrows it down to him
I know it is an old problem, but dear old Seb does take it to a new level.Seb-@rse-tian. So he's written a book slagging of the Chinese, Russians and jihadis.
It's a bit scary that such a cheap agitator could have any sort of influence beyond a brew kit.
Reminds me of a few citizens of this forum...I know it is an old problem, but dear old Seb does take it to a new level.
I was dusting off my copy of “All The Arabic You Never Learned The First Time Around”, which as well as being full of very useful Arabic language has lots of little asides which are quite funny*. The author was on the staff at the US Army Defence Langauge Institute and the book is apparently still required reading.
This bit stood out to me, as summing up Seb.

It's a bit like if he was a cryptologist, and never bothered to study maths or logic any logical prequisites.
He basically just appears to stand up and shout "Durkha Durkha Muhammed Jihad".
But I suppose sheer arrogance and self-confidence (however misplaced) will carry him through.
I get that he is a bit of a rabble rousing crowd pleaser, but that doesn't actually make him any good.
