Let our armed forces do their job

Have your say

It is not very often I agree with Mr Cameron but this time he is right, the idiots who sit in front of their TV’s, tutting at things they obviously know absolutely nothing about want to wake up and smell the coffee.

I am referring to our brave pilots, day after day flying over war zones, and these fools back at home saying they should not fire weapons. I’m sure these young men in our armed forces are fired on every time they go on a sortie.

In case the people who are moaning don’t know, it’s called war.

This country must be the worst in the world for the way it restricts its armed forces.

If these fine young men have been trained sufficiently and have been found capable of carrying and using these weapons, then they should be trusted to know when to use them.

So let’s hear no more of this stupid idea, “we are going to send you to a war zone but you’re not allowed to fire any weapons” War is a fluctuating and volatile situation, let our forces do their job, without one arm tied behind their back.
