Media Request about Ukraine

Looking at some veteran sites on FB, you're getting all the usual bravado of "Yeah, I'm going, who's coming with me?" and "Lets go sort the ruskkis out!", then you look at their profiles and they are middle aged to old, overweight, couldn't run for a bus.
They might have been the mutts nuts 20 or 30 years ago when they were younger, fitter, trained, current and able, but now they would just be a massive liability.
After 27 years service, I'm old, broken and out of date. I've had my war, I'm staying at home. If by some miracle the war gets to the UK, then I will fight.
 
22 years and I only got one of my boots bulled , I'm still working on the other one .
Plus the fact that I only want to go to the Ukraine to fight if I can take my Pedalo FFL (fitted for line laying) as used by the SBS and other THEM !

You were never a hairy-arrse*, surely? Pic of your belt as proof.

I mean, you can both read and write... Dread to think what TTS were thinking when they let you through the course. Was it a practical joke?


*Note to Mods: hairy-arrse is a legitimate trade nomenclature specific to, but not confined to, signals operations, and not an attempt to bypass the swear filter and CA posting rules.**

** Think they bought that bucket of bovine effluent?
 
Hi all

Thanks for the replies so far, I will keep an eye on the forum to see what more comes up.

One of your members, CutLunchCommando, linked to the publication I write for. I tried to reply to confirm that is the site I write for, but my reply wouldn't post. I think because I'm a new user, anything with a link in, even if I didn't post it, is flagged as spam.

Anyway, if you want to see who I write for and the kind of articles we post, see his response.

A lot of people are watching and waiting to see how the war develops. At the moment, nobody really has a clue how foreign fighters will be deployed. It's also unclear what their terms of service will be e.g. is there a minimum contract, will there be an irksome period of basic training etc.

Those with experience are considering issues like the quality of fellow volunteers - who are you sharing a room with on camp, and then trusting with your life at the front?

I heard that once the Ukrainians have a core of experienced Western soldiers, they may deploy them to hunt Russian logistics assets. That would certainly be an intelligent use of naturally adventurous and high quality troops. It might also free up Ukrainian special forces to mount missions into Russia itself.

However here is a pic of someone that looked like me working hard or fishing . I'm not sure which .

I'll be doing my bit by exclusively watching Ukranian actresses on Pornhub.
Pornhub is so last year.....Chaturbate is the way to go. Well thats what I overheard from the pew in front of me in church last Sunday as I was about to take the good lords bread and wine.
 
Joe Biden says his asthma is too bad to be serving in Vietnam.
Shitty Joe though warned Putin that it didn't matter how many tanks or APCs Putin sent to encircle Kiev; he could never win the hearts and souls of the Iranian people. What a tool. What an imbecile. I feel safer already now that this crisis is in his capable (?) hands. Stand down, everybody. :rolleyes:

Hi All

Firstly, I would like to confirm this post has been approved by Admin (Bad CO) prior to posting.

I'm a writer and journalist working for The New Voice, a new online magazine. (Apologies, I tried to include a link to the publication, but my post was rejected as spam when I did. I'm happy to provide a link to anyone who responds).

I'm working on an article about the Ukraine, the focus of which is foreign fighters. I am looking to speak to serving/former service people who are looking to travel to Ukraine to fight, or who are already out there fighting.

I'm happy for people feature anonymously, or to use their names in the article, whichever they prefer.

Thanks

OK, I’ll bite :)
I may have missed this, but……
If you want to write a neutral, or pro Ukrainian article, call it Ukraine.

If you want to write an anti Ukraine or Pro Russian article keep calling it The Ukraine :)

The drive/flight over there would be more than enough for me these days.
