Militaries recruiting children as young as 15...

#1
Not only British Army but Militaries around the world are and have recruited children as young as 15 and even younger. These innocent roses are recruited into the army and then exposed to the extreme violence on the name of military culture and squaddie humar. these kids who mostly belong to deprived background are brainwashed to a point where they do not see a life outside of military. Please bear in mind these kids aint makin teas and coffees in the army. please have your say, as this is an important issue and please be civilised. Moderators, please do not delete this thread as this is an important issue.

much appreciated...

We want peace, we want to look for other ways of resolving conflicts, and we do not want squaddie humar, violence, so uncool, we want everyone to be nice. Is it possible?

What about the drummer boys and buglers of the boar war and 14 year old AT soldiers all through WW2 and after it, that's what I say!

By the way, are you the creature commonly know as 'Chubb'?

A study, funded by a Leftwing trust

Just about says it all really. LF, why not do the decent thing and go forth. If you hate the military that much, why come to a military site? Go and take this crap somewhere where people actually care about your opinions.

And as for this part "Britain is the only EU state to recruit military personnel as young as 16."
This is because we recruit from that age voluntarily unlike most of Liberal Left Wing Europe that decrees that at 18 you must do National Service

I'd say it's more dangerous and more violent on the streets of the UK today for kids, with gang culture, stabbing, shootings, drink & drugs etc. Where would you want your kid to be... Army Cadets learing respect, discipline, skills for adult life etc?, or stood on a street corner getting into trouble and mugging old ladies? No brainer really :roll:

Oxford English Dictionary definition of 'Infantry'

[a. F. infanterie, ad. It. (Sp., Pg.) infanteria foot-soldiery, f. infante a youth, foot-soldier:L. infntem INFANT n.1 For the development of the It. infante cf. the apocopated form fante ‘a man or woman servant or attendant; also, a footman or soldier seruing on foot; also the knaue or varlet at cards’ (Florio); cf. also the history of footman, groom, knave, knight, lad, etc. By Sylvester stressed (nfæntr). Sense 2 is from INFANT n.1 sense 1.]

My bold.
Infantry=Boys.

Why does this seem to surprise you? People who want to win wars need soldiers who are young, fit and aggressive. If the opposition was made up of the fat, lame and lazy, they lost.

This ain't a moral or ethical question. It's simple evolution in action. The fact that people now have the liberty to criticise the recruitment of child soldiers overlooks the fact that that particular liberty was bought for them with the blood of child soldiers. Other people haven't won that luxury yet, so they are still using the most effective weapon available to them.- The kiddy soldier.

Do I smell journalist here?

We don't even use child soldiers for god's sake. All deployed personnel must be at least eighteen years of age.
Lets not let fact get in the way of leftie truths now dear boy... ;)

A graduate can type like a muppet, but a muppet can't type like a graduate.
She's probably got a degree in Peace Studies and the Sociology of Basket Weaving from the University of Godalming, and is now trolling Arrse on behalf of the Daily Worker, to canvass the views of the baby eating monsters of the military industrial complex!

Actually it's NOT an important issue to anyone who knows anything about the British Army or has served, like me, as a Junior. In fact it's a non-story of epic proportions. The information on the site above is utter w*nk, and as for Deepcut!! :x Shall we just say it was discussed at length here some years ago and the findings of the report into it leave nothing to be desired.

Buy a cat FFS! :p
