Thank god for that! I thought our troops were in real danger! I guess all the casualties were from tripping over their own bootlaces.

I love it how these badly trained rebels have been fighting with us for 10 years when they can't compete. It really shows their fighting spirit.

Actually, our casualty numbers are VERY low. And a lot of them are made up form friendly fire and accidents. lol (I know you where being sarcastic but it's actually true)

In Iraq and Afghanistan the highest casualty numbers are actually civilian by a very long gap over military on both sides.

Blame the US government that was in power in the 70, they sent the CIA to train these people back then and supply them with weapons. They are still suing the same guns from the 70's that they used against the Russians. It's nothing to do wiht trianing in reality though, the reason they are hard to defeat fully is because they are not a proper Military force, they hide in house and mountains and look like normal every day Afghanistan civilians.

Yes, the young men who fought the Soviets are the commanders of other young men fighting us. These are the same guys.  Just older and wiser, and confident in their winning.   And they know as well as we do, that we'll leave exactly like the Soviets did.   Another money hole, a la Vietnam.

Not from what I've read. But fighting a bunch of badly trained rebels with modern day military technology isn't that difficult.

It's not like he is doing a beach landing in WW2 where he would have been at a serious disadvantage.
Bloody hell, mate, you know how to make yourself popular. If it's that easy, how come it's taken ten years so far, and I seem to recall that these Badly Trained Rebels have managed to inflict a few casualties while they were at it.  Why not pop out to the 'Stan and see how easy it is. If it's that easy, I'm sure you'll have no problem sorting them out in a couple of weeks.  I really do think your blind hatred is making you veer wildly off the path of rationality.

Andrew and Harry never once saw any "action". All the royals wher ein safe positions. They even made up some BS about Harry being taken out of Afghanistan due to the safety of his fellow soldiers...
Um... Prince Andrew also holds the actual rank of commander and the honorary rank of rear admiral in the Royal Navy, in which he served as an active duty helicopter pilot and later instructor in helicopter flight. He saw active service during the Falklands War, flying on multiple missions including anti-surface warfare, Exocet missile decoy and casualty evacuation.

nope, no actual hazards there at all. Again, this seems just to be blind, irrational hatred I'm afraid.

No, they aren't.  The British military has suffered 440 fatalities so far, which is more than the rest of Europe combined and almost three times as many as the country which has suffered the next highest number of fatalities, Canada.

Of those 440 fatalities the overwhelming majority - 396 (90%) - of them are a result of enemy action.

The charity works is BS. It doesn't do anything. Applied for Princes trust when Is tarted out in my Dream career. Nothing.


The Prince's Trust has worked with 40,000 young people each year since Prince Charles set it up in 1976, with around 80% moving on to Employment, Education, Training or Volunteering.

You don't sound like someone who knows much about the real world in the UK.

I know that the overwhelming majority of the British people want to keep the monarchy and there is almost no desire for a republic.

Quote

My point is that the Queen might be head of state, but she doesn't do anything with it. Which means there is no point here being there.

There are several reasons for the monarchy, one good one being that we aren't lumbered with a politician as a Head of State.

If you asked most people would they rather stick with the monarchy or change it and have someone like Cameron, Miliband, Clegg, Obama, Hollande or Merkel as their Head of State the vast majority would choose to stick with the monarchy.

Quote

Please enlighten us with what decisions she actually makes regarding Britain


Why don't you do your own research about the work that the monarch performs?  It's shouldn't be too difficult.


Quote

As for Royals during wartime, they are all put in safe positions away from any Danger.

Yet more tripe.

Prince Philip and Princess Elizabeth actually SERVED in the war.  Philip actually took part in naval battles, including the Battle of Cape Matapan.  He was present in Tokyo Bay when the instrument of Japanese surrender was signed.

As for the King and Queen, they were offered to be taken to Canada where they would have been much safer, but instead they decided to stay in London at the height of the Blitz.  They refused to go even when Buckingham Palace was being bombed.

And what about Harry?  Show evidence that he was put in a safe position in Afghanistan.  His comrades would disagree with you.

Quote

If you class that as serving our country when others go without who did far more during WW2

You can't help but post rubbish.  Why don't you just take a look at what Prince Philip did during the war, such as when he saved his ship from a night bomber attack?

And there has just been a British royal taking part in a war for the second time.  And Harry's uncle, Prince Andrew, saw action in the Falklands War.

Yet how many British politicians have seen action in war recently?  Not one.

Quote

Would also like to point out thta I would NEVER be rich for one simple reason. I am not greedy enough. I would give too much to help others and give a lot to family and friends.

It looks like you are going to be visited by this guy...

Really? Then why do you seem to be so determined to deny that there've been any significant casualties worth speaking of in Afghanistan, merely to reinforce your prejudice against the Monarchy? Who's doing the baiting here?

the casualty rating for Afghan Civilians is higher than British troops, never mind their rebel casualties. Which means we are just massacring them.

That's hilarious, quoting form their site.

If that was the real number then at least one person on this forum or anyone could name at least 1 person it has helped. Because I know I can't and I know a lot of people.
