  1. What really happened in Vegas

    The official story has been changed several times and is still does not add up. Many of you will have been to Vegas and know how your are watched night and day. So to follow on from a debate started on the Trump thread........Here goes for starters Why haven't we seen any CCTV of Paddock on...

    Juncker proposes EU military headquarters

    I've never made any secret of my wish for the UK to remain in the EU, but reading this does make me think we might be better off out of it. What's the point of NATO if something like this happens. A move towards a united European State may be a step nearer...

    Being 65 is cool!

    I was sent this today by another oldie mate from the Colonies. I thought it worth sharing. I am over 65 and the Armed Forces thinks I'm too old to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've got the whole thing ***-backwards. Instead of sending 18-year olds...

  7. The Falklands.

    Things could start hotting up out there. The Falklands or Malvinas as the Argies call them, 310 miles from Argentina, is under increased threat again after oil and gas was found through drilling. The thing is, the last time the Argies moved on the Falklands we were a much bigger in military...
  8. Russia

    So Russia sends two military aircraft (Bombers) near to Cornwell. Mr Putin had also flown two other bombers down the English Channel two weeks ago. It's letting us know that their bombers can easily reach the whole of Great Britain. There has also been Russian warships in our waters. Now I'm...

    Institutional racism and militarialistic policing taking place in the good old USA. That's some high-grade weaponry. http://www.thewire.com/national/2014/08/the-pentagon-gave-the-ferguson-police-department-military-grade-weapons/376033/

    Best special forces.

    As an occasional reader of Soldier of Fortune and having a Tony Soprano style penchant for military documentaries my question is which is your favourite special forces unit? Please add any supporting evidence for your choice such as any embassies you have stormed or similar.

    Man in charge tomorrow is experienced official, Nigel Miller from Durham. This is his ninth season as a League referee and this will be his seventh Southend match and his sixth Southend away game. We haven't actually won any of his away matches although we nearly did at Luton, on TV, when...

    Good Luck!...

    To the Royal Air Force as they seem set to take the lead role in Military Action against Libya. Especially amazing as the current fleet of RAF assets stands at 3* Airfix models, and half a Nimrod. *It would be four, but little Johnny wanted his model back.

    Is it acceptable.....

    In order to try and get a bit more space on the train I have taken to wearing an enamelled SAS 'Who dares wins" regimental insignia on the lapel of my coat. My theory is that people will think I am either ex-SAS or an unstable nutcase and afford me all the space I need. Is this acceptable or...

    I am a bit late with this as I only watched it this morning having had it on series link for a while. Anyone else seen it? Theres not many things that have me gripped on TV but really enjoyed Strike Back. Its a spy/military drama a bit far fetched in places but generally a great watch. Sadly...
