This is a link to an article by Jezza which appeared in the SUN, the Link is to the MOD Oracle

http://www.modoracle.com/news/Jeremy-Clarkson-Complains-About-War-Coverage_17225.html?category=all

In my opinion a bloody good read with very many excellent points.

I apologise profusely if this has been posted elsewhere, I couldn't find it under "Jeremy Clarkson"

I am not sure whether this is the right forum, but, you've got to start somewhere and eh its from the Current Bun............

Has it got anything to do with the fact that you can report on Gaza and never be more than an hour from a five star hotel with a fully stocked bar?

In the Second World War, we had to get Berlin. In the Falklands, we had to get Stanley. In Afghanistan we have to... what?
Simple, but very effective Mr Clarkson, or may I jump the gun a little and call you Sir Jeremy?

I'm interested to find out what the actual objectives in Afghanistan, especially the Southern bit of it, are!

So far all we seem to be doing is creating means (trained Afghan Police, ANA Kandaks capable of mounting their own operations, running water, electricity, etc) for an end. What is that end, actually?

If we really want to defeat the Taliban, then why oh why don't we go after them?

Said it before and I will say it again - JC is a legend and is prime PM material. Richard Littlejohn as Home Secretary - job done!

He's not alone in his opinions, and in fact there's been at least one previous article by (I think) a Times writer expressing a sort of bewildered admiration for the Army in Afghanistan - bewildered because he had no idea what the Army was actually trying to achieve there, and in view of the history of the place whether our politicians actually believed that they could change anything for the better without making everything a lot worse first.

When I see a definitive political plan for the place which isn't just a scanned wetdream by the likes of Blair and Bush, I'll give my support for the expedition there. I'm now persuaded that we have no damned business there other than in killing the people who killed our relatives on 9/11 and events thereafter, and getting out.

Mr Clarkson is mildly amusing when discussing the principles of the internal combustion engine. Littledick would need to live in the UK in order to be Home Secretary. I suggest that he serves his country best by staying the feck out of it.

Seconded. :D
Clarkson is a legend. But Littlejohn? A man with an unhealthy obsession with homosexuality who writes on life in Britain from a Florida mansion based on the account of the Daily Mail and it's readers? Book me a flight to Canada now...

Ashie,I would sooner have someone like Richard Littlejohn as Home Secretary than any of your friends in the Labour Party.

Sounds like a man with a plan to me. Give me one of them before a professional politician anytime.

I think Jeremy Clarkson's a legend aswell & his support for the troops is very honorable,

but his simplistic terms for explaining Afghanistan to the public is a bit misleading. Ok in WW2 berlin was the objective & in the falklands Port stanley was the objective, can anyone explain the objective in Northern Ireland??

Afghanistan is much more complicated than "there's the enemy, KILL 'EM & lets steal their flag!!"

But he hits the nail on the head when describing the poor press coverage when compared to what's happening in Gaza

Bugger it - let's make him Lord High Protector while we're at it! :D 8)
