    WTF! British troops are already bearing the results of disgusting neglect by the government, now they must bear insult as well! Our morally bankrupt government, who spend more time lining their own pockets than they do on matters of state, are now to allow reporters from Al Jazeera to embed with British troops! Did they ask the frontline troops what their feelings about this would be. Don’t make me laugh. And do they really believe that Al Jazeera will provide fair and equitable media coverage! Whose fucking side are these bastard politicians on?

    From an American's perspective, it seems that the Muslims have already taken over Britain. And while we all know that most Muslims are not terrorists, it looks like you guys have more than your fair share of extremists.

    This is outrageous, but not all that surprising.

    The situation now, DiveCon, is that the lunatics are running the asylum! This government is a dead man walking. Unfortunately we have to put up with their incompetence for another 7 months. I know that those units who get lumbered with protecting these embeds will be pretty hacked off and rightly so.

    No, that's not the case Chanel. It is just that this lily livered government of ex-marxists, bleeding-heart liberalists and self-serving twats, introduce all kinds of stupid directives because they think it's what minorities want. In fact, 99% of their garbage is not representative of what Muslims think or want at all. The biggest problem we have is deporting extremists and the difficulty there is the fault of the EU, the biggest disaster this country has ever faced.

    I doubt they'll get the opportunity to do that, but when they return to the TV station they will have gleaned all sorts of information on British strategy and tactics and no doubt this will be passed back to the insurgent leaders.

    Five years ago, I'd of said, "Come here, it's not happening," but now it is. We are becoming the EU. Not a good turning point...

    A nice collection of knee-jerk reactions to the name "Al-Jazeera." I take it none of you read their articles regularly or have familiarized yourselves enough with the network to pass judgment on it. Compared to the garbage news that runs on TV here (FOX, MSNBC, etc.), it's a breath of fresh air.
