Have you got the minerals to fight against an invader?

#1
I'll probably get hung drawn & quartered for saying this on this site but here goes. Would any of you have the minerals to do what the ragheads are doing? When you consider the firepower against them would you pick up an AK and hide in a ditch to attack an invading power? Afghanistan or Iraq it matters not - would YOU do it if your country was invaded?

Depends on who was doing the invading.

I mean if it was the 7th Amazonian (Beerdrinking nympho) brigade then probably not.

If it was the Spams then I would probably just watch as they shot the fcuk out of each other and then rebuilt the place and left.

Of course if it happened to be the Jocks then pass the ammo.

I realise this is not the sort of answer you where hoping for but it is 5 minutes to knock off :)

Yes.

I don't know if I'd have the minerals, the animals, and vegetables certainly, but the minerals.....

Of course our government doesn't trust us with an AK so we probably would have to fight with minerals i.e throw rocks. Now that would take cojones.

I'd agree with that steven fella.....

Invaded by nymphos? great, sign me up to the nympho slave camp
Invaded by septics, fire off the odd round and watch them slot each other in panic
Anyone else, chuck me the gat, rounds and with a bit of luck some rations.

Conduct a campaign of classic guerrilla style interdiction? yes. Go toe to toe with a numerically superior and better equipped opponent? no.
Fools and fanatics just become martyrs, whereas, a concerted campaign of sabotage, ambush and assassination just makes the occupiers situation an untenable one.
Now, wheres my Welrod and piano wire? :lol:

Die for this country, this government and what they believe in defending it? NO!

Die defending the people who live here? YES!

And I wouldn't bat an eyelid at the moment because this thing has left me so hollow death could be a comfortable way to spend the rest of my life!!!

As long as I get a box of mini-flares for personal use.

And a lifetime supply of biscuits brown.


In all seriousness, who the hell is going to say no if it meant keeping loved ones alive?

I certainly would if it meant my family could sustaine their way of life and the rights and privileges that we have in this country

You would probably have to go down to your local IRA pub, ask to speak to the An-phoblact seller and take him out for a few jars in exchange for advice!!

I suspect if it came to it this country would fight, I hope I would, although as a copper my role would probably be along the lines of "whats in your boot then sir 6 old smg's, nicely oiled though, mind how you drive sir, nothing here Herr Feldwebel" type

I joined up because I love this cr@ppy country, and would die fighting for it.

Shame i've only been there on leave and courses in the last 6 years. I would probably be left in BF(G), watching out for rushkies!!
 
#14
I'd be on the side of the invader until I saw Blair and his cronies hung, drawn and quartered, THEN I'd take to the hills with my pointy stick to fight off the sassenach!!
 
#15
Also, would we get a chance to fight???

I reckon the chavs, in their issue hoodies and lack of respect for anything in uniform, would be right in there. As much as I hate these little scallies, they coud be our own terrorist fighting unit (God knows they terrorise were my parents live).

Long live the "Scally ban"

Anybody see Panorama where they were embedded with the RM in Afghanistan? One of the guys said it. "They're doing exactly what I would do if foreign tanks rolled down my street".

An unpopular, but pragmatic view of the IRA back in the day

I recall being told by an instructor at NITAT: Try and understand their thoughts, what they think of us and then try and survive.

I did and I understand what he meant!

I think I would be equipped materially and mentally if no longer physically. I would have to send others out as I dont like things to fire back at me anymore. I thought I'd given that up. As for collaberating to hang bliar, he is the collaberator and you would have to join a very long queue!
 
#20
Depends on who was doing the invading, and what resources we had, I dont think it would get to insurgent warfare, I think every one would die fighting pitched battles before it got that far,
