I don't remember that being Australian - but holding a grudge for the span of your natural life against a whole party because of the perceived actions of an individual seems a little ott, lol.

The Left are guilty of then when it comes to Thatcher.

I agree, but at the time (and, up to a point, even now) Michael Foot's action seemed to personify the Labour Left's whole outlook on British politics. Mr Foot and many of his cronies would rather have had held that Remembrance Sunday parade in Red Square! IMO, his single saving grace was that he favoured britain's withdrawal from the Common Market (as it was then), but I suspect only because he favoured closer ties with the Soviet Union!

I think this is not a religion problem but a British culture problem. For example i have seen Lower class people support the troops more but the richer classes not supporting them and want troops to be pulled out. I think these people are embarrassed or ashamed that the are not helping out the country.  Also i don't think Brits are that Patriotic about our own country. If you go anywhere else, everyone supports theirr forces

personally i don't think any military should be supported or respected
if you show them too much respect and support and fill their head with that crap
they start having thoughts and delusions of them better than the civilians and there you have another " us "
i think the military ..of all nations in general should be kept in low regards nothing more special than ordinary people
and know their places comes after the civilians .. they're just paid goverment employees
nothing more than serve .. get paid .. no special treatment no special premissions or rules of their own

holding high regard for military forces is perfect combination for dictatorship
and corruptions in my personal opinion

just like if some one did something offensive to other passangers they'd make him quit it
and had there been action made to back up that military personell on this incident
next thing you know an army maniacs getting free pass bothering people everywhere
they should be kept in tight hand

Support and respect is a personal choice and your entitled to yours.

I think the world would be a desperate place to live everyone thought like you. Picking up a daily newspaper and see people like the Kartrashians, sports personalities, pop stars, TV & movie stars, all being held in high esteem by millions of people and the Military personnel being thought of as nothing.

I am thankful to all our military, I may not believe in the reasons for the wars we are fighting today but I will always support our boys and girls who are out there fighting them.

Left wing rule.

In America, current and former members of the armed forces are given permanent discounts at things like shops, restaurants and cinemas.

In Britain, the British public generally love their armed forces personnel and thousands go out every Remembrance Sunday to pay their respects to those who fought and died for our freedoms.  Hundreds of people lined the streets of Royal Wootton Basset to honour the Afghanistan fallen when their coffins passed through the town.  It's just our ruling Left Wing Establishment which hates our armed forces personnel.

I must say I'm not surprised to see you blame this 'left' demigod that you keep going on about. I heard it was also to blame for the Roman Empire, Genghis Kahn, AIDS and cancer. There's also a rumour that it's killing all the bees. You might want to look into that.

I disagree, military personnel are already very disciplined and understand their place - which is in harms way by the order of an unknown General somewhere whose choice to place them there they have no say in.  Every job type will have it's "loose cannons" but for the most part those who join the armed forces are not afraid of rigid discipline and will act regardless of danger to their own lives, thats rare on both counts, they deserve respect unless they act otherwise in public, that's just my opinion.

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."

Tell you what, get rid of the military from whatever country you're from and then see how you fare should your country ever be threatened by another country.  Without brave soldiers, sailors and airmen to protect you wouldn't last two minutes.  And if you aren't American or British you'll then be begging the Americans and British to come and bail you out, as usual.

I think a country can do okay without a military so long as there is some other powerful country around that wants it to do okay.  Chancy stuff.

That's a bit risky.  To be honest, I wouldn't trust any other country.  None whatosoever.  It's best to defend yourself.

am syrian and we're getting wrecked on so badly and yet civilians are taking the fight with a fully equiped army
without " usa , britian " bailing us out or even paying their duty to a nation which is part of the UN
don't delude your self with the thought that these two actually help people .. they save their intrestes nothing more
no interests = no bailing out = syria nowadays
am glad we stand as living proof on the double standards of that account
so don't give away credits you don't own

and my country history when we were under france occupation
there was no army .. it was always civilians rebels who won us freedom and attacked back
army should always be treated strictly so they don't  fall into the illusion that they are above people
that's how i see .. or that's how we learned the hard way

And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
