Any of you f*cking tubes due a HERRICK any time soon? Be good to see you out here when the lid comes off the Kandahar/the south. He may have been a b*stard, but he was our b*stard - if you don't understand what's going on, why bother posting sh*te? You can guarantee ISAF will cop a load now.
Apologies, of course, to those who posted more considered opinions and not the 'oh dear never mind' one line drivel variety. I assume you're probably the ones who are actually, er, you know, in the Army.
