" And when you are a young soldier in a distant desert, on wages lower than the firemen whose job you were doing a month ago with obsolete equipment, facing an enemy who has never yet played by the rules and who has a taste for nightmare weapons well, then you need more than just the right filters. You need to trust your allies, and your Government. Failing that, there must at least be some bleak comfort in knowing that a former officer was willing to step out of line and risk contumely by speaking out for you"
Couldn't have put it better myself. Thanks for the tip off MSR
