Selective Hearing

The on going debate regarding the alleged abuse of prisoners by our troops in Iraq has brought many problems to light. I am not referring to the way in which our troops behaved which in my opinion was rather restrained given that they had just come under motar fire and generally wouldnt have been very happy about beeing attacked by a large group of people. Instead I am referring to the way in which certain people hold such blinkered views about our military and refuse to listen to any kind of argument which does not agree with there own, whilst declaring that they have obviously won the debate.
I would like to make several things clear here even if none of the people I am referring to will ever read this post:
Firstly the army are not trained to deal with civil insurrections. I have repeatedly stated that and it is a fact but no bothers to read it, instead they make comments such as :
"Soldiers are trained to deal with riot situations, and deal with them according to certain rules."
They are not trained to deal with it, they do not know how to deal with it, and even if they had been can you really expect people to behave exactly according to the rule book when they are under fire?
Lets get a bit of perspective here, if the roles were reversed then the squaddies would be dead. It is that simple, we condemn our troops for beating up a group of men involved in attacking them, but barely break a sweat when the insurgents behead aid workers. The coverage this is receiving is totally out of proportion to the crime committed if there was indeed any crime at all. The guys out there have only a few months basic traning under their belts then we drop them straight into a war zone and yet people seem to expect them to act better than highly trained riot police.
It is not their job.
They shouldnt have to do it.
We have got to see it through or all the troops that have already died, did so for nothing.
Leave them alone they are doing their jobs.
If you lot think you can do any better with your high morals and principles off you go, I`m sure the army could do with the recruits, lets say about a hundred of you shall we?

If as has been suggested these people were throwing petrol bombs at British troops over 'job shortages' then ask yourselves what the hell we are doing putting our boys in harm's way for.

I am at the point of simply waving the white flag and saying 'bring them home'.
