Theres one thing you can bet ya bottom dollar on and that is that there's wars being waged all over the show any time of the day or night that you wanna bet that bottom dollar ..Actually its quite apt being a dollar , as it's normally the yanks who have something to do with the shit flying around the planet. It used to be us ,but the difference is, we used to win and actually did some good around the world. But it's the land of the free thats adopted the mantle of saving the world,so,keep the head down and let the shit fly. It seems strange in these enlightened times that the blame for these wars is placed firmly on the shoulders of the boys n' girls in the various services 'on the front line.'
This does seem a little unfair .As 99% of the Army, Navy n' AirForce didn't join to fight and put their life at risk. They wanted to go to hot sunny places ;Walk along beaches as the sun goes down over the horizon of some exotic ocean a long way from the Irish sea or the English Channel. Then ,go and drink drinks with long straws and longer umbrellas in;Shoot some rifles and drive a tank;A whole variety of things absolutly nothing to do with fighting.In fact, just like on the adverts on the telly. So, this thing about RAF people not wearing their uniforms in some town ,so as not to upset some braindead locals seems a little unfair. It's our old friend the politician that plunges our uniformed adventurers from the beach bars, sea n' the sand to ,well the sand !...Of Afghanistan n' Iraq.
The troops wear uniforms and live in barracks. Whereas politicians wear the finest cut suits and live in nice big houses with their families .But, while in London they need large luxury appartments to crawl to after whatever reception or show they've had to attend ,then 'screw' their personal assistant,whoever that may be ,or whatever sex they may be. But the 'screwing' doesn't stop there.They carry on screwing.Screwing the system they've been entrusted with maintaining and improving. Politics is indeed a noble calling. Only people of certain qualities and attributes can make it and survive .They ,and we should be proud of them,they shouldn't hide their light under a bushel .They should wear a uniform ,tastefully designed in keeping with their noble calling .They can walk with their jowly heads held high with pride. And we can give them ,in no uncertain terms ,the respect they deserve when we meet them in the local boozer,where the politicians hang out.
