  2. Today's debate - former 'war hero' gets 15months for owning a gun

    Too harsh/too lenient/just right? The amount of people going crazy about this seems completely out of kilter with my view - he owned an illegal firearm, his SAS past is irrelevent (except for the fact that he's a highly trained killer, someone I'd rather not have an illegal firearm). Anyway...
  3. War on terror 14 years and counting.

    George Bush told the world that a man living in a cave had masterminded the biggest terrorist act in history,the official version of events leaves a lot to be desired,but hey they must of carried out the attack,surely. What has the West learned? Not a lot as they still think bombing the crap...

    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...

    What a team effort by your guys Timlin - Ive seen on here that some of you think he is going to pastures new , The man is a soldier and that goal of his is unbelievable if you saw him half way through the first leg . You HAVE to do everything you can to keep him . If not i hope he wants to...

    Happy St George's Day !

    Bow to the great Turkishman and Roman soldier. Patron saint of so many countries. I take it Motherland will be celebrating in its usual muted format?

    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.

    Shootings in toulouse and montauban......islamic connection?

    It started with a soldier being shot dead in Toulouse by a person on a scooter just over a week ago and this was followed by three soldiers being gunned down in Montauban last Thursday. All of the soldiers were magherébin (arab) and I started to think of an islamic link..........joining the...
  13. Ref Watch ........ Major Danny McDermid

    Man in charge tomorrow is Danny McDermid from Hampshire, or rather Major McDermid, who is currently a serving soldier in the Royal Logistics Corps and who returned safely to the UK a couple of weeks ago following a six month deployment to Afghanistan. Due to this deployment, this will be only...

    Scolari Rattled

    Luiz Felipe Scolari may not be delivering the goods on the pitch, but off it he remains as dramatic as ever. In a chaotic post-match press conference, he demanded an apology from referee Mike Dean for Arsenal's opening goal and appeared to hint at a conspiracy against his team. A consummate...

    The 'Stan

    First of all, I'm writing this from my perspective of the last six months, I'm no hero, but plenty of my collegues are. Hopefully no one will think I'm writing this is order to show off, or to earn rep. Indeed, please don't rep me for this at all. I realise I'm probably not the only serviceman...

    Where the Country really has gone wrong.

    Well, other than the economic crisis - I want to touch on how it's treating it's veterans of wars and conflicts. Next year, 06/06/2009, is the 65th anniversary of D-day, possibly the most important day in the modern history of our country and possibly the world. That day, people like my...
