Learn what? They (the Government) have committed to standing by Bush & Co so when Bush & Co pull out, then the UK can withdraw. And as Bush as put Blair as his Peace Envoy in the ME, it will continue. :x

Nothing you or I can do about that, until the next election :thinking:

and I doubt the next election will change anything whoever wins....any change in Iraq is very much in the hands of the USA and who will become the next President....like most people I'm hoping for a complete withdrawal within the next few years but from what Tony Blair said in the Commons yesterday that looks most unlikely until Iraq has a stable democracy.....and pigs will fly!!

No you wanted to know when they are going to learn and my response was they are not. Sorry for the confusing answer.

Actually what this country really needs to learn is to respect and praise their servicemen and women. By that I mean the soldiers etc are sometimes tainted by the action of the politicians. Our armed forces are the best trained in the world yet they lack the best equipment, paid peanuts for risking their lives whilst their families sometimes have to put up with sub-standard accommodation.
I'm not saying our forces are perfect but they need more praise in the media for what they do and the sacrifices they and their families make.

Military Operations
British Soldier from 2nd Battalion The Royal Welsh killed on operations in Iraq on 7 July 2007
7 Jul 07

It is with deep regret that the Ministry of Defence must confirm that a British soldier from 2nd Battalion The Royal Welsh has been killed during a large scale operation in the early hours of this morning, Saturday 7 July 2007.
Ministry of Defence. Opens in a new window.

Ministry of Defence

The soldier was killed when an Improvised Explosive Device detonated just after midnight local time, against a Warrior patrol in the Tuninah district in the north of Basra.

In three separate incidents, one soldier was very seriously injured and another received a minor injury from Small Arms Fire attacks, and a further soldier was injured from a separate IED attack. All three soldiers are currently receiving the best possible treatment in the British Field Hospital.

Next have been informed and have requested a period of grace before further details are released.

RIP brave soldier from Wales

Yes somebody DOES need to stay there, otherwise malica will totally take over and destroy the country ( even more so than already) But does it have to be our troops?

Edit: and credit where credit is due, and the americans...in all honesty these deserve just as much respect.

Spill the beans then, you are not under any act, so you can say what you want. I heard that the Americans are draughting in illegals for a two year stint on the proviso that once their tour is complete they will be allowed to remain in the US with full green card status. Only problem is, when they are killed they are not counted as US troops so the real total for US troops KIA is a lot higher. Fodder, is the name they are referred to.

On Friday, a third serviceman died in an accident in Basra. He has been named as Rifleman Edward Vakabua, 23.

Shut up and put up with it OR let the public know what is really going on. I hate suppression and if I thought something needed fixing I would let the World know what is going on so that peoples lives could be saved. It's all about people not political gain scoring :x

'course a lot depends on what side of the fence people are on, backhanders have a wonderful way of keep people quite, fortunatly I don't operate that way. :thumbsup:

This is a free Country as you keep on reminding people and free speech comes as part of that, so therefore I am entitled to my opinion as well.

now now campers....I have a close relative who had 6 months in Iraq....main complaint was the antique vehicles which roast you alive...while the Aussies had a modern flleet of air conditioned vehicles fit for purpose.

It's just a shame that most of the money is taken up keeping the guys (& girls) just positioned there rather than spending it on supplies and fighting gear. Not enough body protection, guns that jam in the sand, planes that suffer from protection of external attacks..... it's all very wrong to subject people to that and expect results that are clearly not achievable...

I still believe it is a role for NATO forces as in peace keeping, not fighting :whistling:
