The Paras in Afghanistan

#2
They're doing a great job to follow our government policies in horrible conditions and well done to them.

But the photo of the tshirt slogans does no favours for them. It makes them look like idiot americans. British Army should rise above that sort of macho crap. They should show some respect and dignity for the enemy, not disrespect them. That is why Brits are the best.

Doing what they are doing, where they are doing it and they can wear Gary Glitter t shirts for al I care.

If they did that we'd never win cos Terry would be even more pissed off.

Only way to win is to understand your enemy, and understand what they fight and die for.

So you think British Army should drive women and children before them to beform a living bridge over seige dykes? Or that army bints should be encouraged to disembowel captured enemy? I don't think we would win if we expected our troops to do that.

Try thinking a bit more modern. The other day I searched on Youtube "US Army", then "British Army". It was interesting to see the difference in style of the videos. US Army videos were mostly about celebration of killing. British Army videos were mostly of soldiers enjoying themselves with pranks. Given that these videos are viewed around the world, which army do you think is sending the most powerful message?

Are you on crack?

Yes, sometimes, no.

But those slogans on the para t-shirts lowers the dignity of the parachute regiment. Please don't disrespect a great heritage with crap like that.

There is a lack of leadership in the Paras if they are allowed to display juvenile bravado like that.

BRAVADO

Definition:

boldness or courage: a real or pretended display of courage or boldness

Thats probably a good thing for the infantry, people whos job it is to "defeat the enemy through close combat."

It could be argued that slogans on para t-shirts have a positive effect on unit cohesion and morale
It also could be argued that we do offensive slogans on t-shirts with alot more style and panache than the yanks

Ghengis Khan, a great military leader



A further question,

Been on ops yet and served with the US Forces?
Been on annual camp yet?
In fact, have you finished TA recruit training yet?

TA WRVS lady dosent really cut it as 'in the forces'


And I still think you're on crack

failed p coy? even tried p coy?

until you've been there, in their shoes... i'd rec you don't go bleating about the heritage of the parachute regiment or their manner of soldiering....

As for lack of leadership comment... they have some of the finest Officers, SNCOs, JNCOs and soldiers on this planet... with silly comments like that you're going to attract allot of incoming..... (and by my comment, I do not mean to take anything away from any other people in positions of leadership in any other unit.)

i'm off for a beer. fucknut.

I have no problems with what these incredible lads are doing, or what T shirt they are wearing. They are proving that the British Infantry are the best in the world.

Well, it worked for Ghenghis and the Golden Horde! :twisted: :lol:

Also worth noting perhaps that the ONLY warrior to give the Afghans and the proto-Taliban a complete shoeing was Alexander the Great...who was every bit as ruthless as The Khan of Khans. 8O

TBH, I don't give a Foxtrot what slogans the Paras wear on their t-shirts. They are braver men than me and I have nothing but respect for them. It should also be pointed out that such items of fashon are not limited to the Paras; anyone remember Prince Harry's baseball cap with the quote "We do bad things to bad people" on it?
