Our morally bankrupt government is a disgrace. The charlatans of power send our young people to fight a war, but close their ears to the pleas from top military commanders for more resources in the shape of more troops and the right equipment. For years front line commanders have begged for more helicopters. Have their pleas been responded to. Simple answer is NO. Our troops STILL ride around in vehicles not fit for purpose. Vehicles that cannot withstand blast from mines or IEDs. They are crying out for armoured vehicles .but still nothing happens. Yet, there are thousands of vehicles fit for purpose, stored in Britain: Why then, one asks, are they not being shipped to Afghanistan? Answer. Because we have a penny-pinching government who are more interested in lining their own pockets than providing the right protection and resources for our young lions on the front line. If ever there was an example of Lions led by donkeys, then this is it! I shall be posting much more on this subject, but this will do for now.
