Remember, if you don't support the british army's child murdering in Iraq and Afghanistan (which is heroic), you are an isis supporter and you support isis's murdering (infact, why don't you join them?) . These are the only 2 options you have.

What battle?? The battle for america to secure oilfields in Iraq and build the trans Afghanistan pipeline in Afghanistan?? Is that why the british went to murder all those Iraqi and Afghan children?? You are truly deluded if you think these "soldiers" are "heroes". You should know this better than most, because from your name, I suspect you are of Pakistani descent (or Muslim at least).

A far better debate would be to consider what the 'deal' is in this.

I presume you mean the 'Kennington' Oval, unless you are suggesting this is at the 'Kensington' Oval in Barbados, more people sure will be interested then!!

I agree with you this country has been good to many many immigrants.That doesn't mean though that because you are an immigrant or you don't originate from here (no one really does) then you waive your right to protest about the countries foreign policy.

​IMMIGRANT!? How dare you!
When a British person relocates elsewhere he is an expatriate yet whenever a non UK national settles here he is an immigrant!?
What hypocrisy.

Don't like the cause behind it, but like the cricketers involved. Will not stand up and applaud these 'brave' people because I am pure scum...

The huge difference is an ex patriot moves to another country because they can afford to.
An immigrant moves here for money or if you're European, til you have enough money to move back.

An expat is someone simply living in a foreign country temporarily (whether short or long term), whereas an immigrant is someone who comes to another country to take permanent residence.

So because the government sent our troops over there they are child murderers? Absolute retards in this thread. They are soldiers doing as they are tasked, none of which is murdering children. Civilian casualties are an unfortunate part of any conflict. I'm sure there are a few soldiers who have done illegal things but those will be few and far between, branding all soldiers child murderers ridiculous and offensive. If I was to brand all Muslims terrorists I would be branded a racist, these men and women join to serve their country, if the powers that be send them to Afghan/Iraq are they supposed to disobey direct orders and throw their career away? You idiots bad mouthing the military should have a bit of respect and realise if war ever came to this country you damn sure wouldn't be complaining about the military protecting you and your families.

I have issues with H4H in terms of their management remuneration. Last time I looked, the "founders" were taking a pretty big slice of the pie, their 2014 accounts still show that there are the following top earners:

1x 90-100K
4x 80-90k
4x 70-80k
3x 60-70k

With a total wage bill of over £9.2m for 2014. I personally think that this is wrong, the top earners are raking off over £1m per year, is that different to any other Charity (I'm looking at you Oxfam!!!), probably not, but does that mean its right?? I don't think so. Yes they need managers, of course they do, but I bet they could get suitably experienced board members for expenses if not free, its a good cause. When you think that they generated £29m in the year, a hell of a lot of donations are not reaching their intended recipients??

If you value the troops, I was told that the RBL use their donations for what they are intended for?? Happy for anyone to throw (non insulting) light on anything I've said, Im not trolling, I just think that in this day and age, we are took quick to give to charity without actually looking into what its doing.

​Agree, the troops deserve support but I'm also very wary of charities in general. Like to know my money is going where it should, charity bosses should not be on huge salaries.

I always thought it depended what side of the fence you were?!?!? Surely they are known as "expatriates" to US because they USED to be patriots of this country, and now they have settled abroad?? Surely to the country they moved to, they are, and always will be "immigrants"?!?

I think you're trying too hard to play the race card when there isn't one to play?

It's a real quandary, you WANT to help the cause you choose, but you KNOW that your £1 will be halved?? Sure many will say that it's still half going to the good cause...... but its still only half!

Absolute scum some of you on here are, those lads go out to protect us, the ones that you should direct your delusional views at are the government. They come back with limbs missing and you are there sat on your backside thinking you you know everything, have you been to Afghan or Iraq? You know what you read in the newspaper or see on the news nothing else.

Yes the soldiers are used to do the dirty work of the government and their puppet masters but that's not to say they're innocent.

I hope that you're not directing that tirade at me? However, I have issues with the word "protect". Their actions are not protecting us from anything, if anything, their work is doing the exact opposite. But this is the point, it's not THEIR decision, they are doing what they are ordered to do by successively incompetent governments.

I have mates in the forces, and believe me, they are uncertain as to what good they are doing as they are in an unwinnable war. They are being shot at from all sides without the freedom to return fire, then when they get injured and come home to a government that leaves them in the lurch... that's the true crime here!! Slinging insults does not help anyone, let's at least be civil.

Yes, they're "just following orders" but come on man they're not droids!

Don't understand the negative comments. Help me understand the logic of people who migrated here. If you have a problem with the way of life or anything here why not go back or why did you come her in the first place. I too migrated from India but if I had a problem with the people or the way of life her I wouldn't

The only specific comment is that British forces are baby killers - is that what you think? Come on, grow a pair and say what you mean!

So you think it would be a better idea for troops in combat to make up their own minds, rather than follow a strict battle plan? I'm afraid your "just following orders" comment is naive in the extreme; it wouldn't work on the football field and it certainly wouldn't work on the battlefield - good God man, we're not French!!

No, i think it would be better for troops not to go to war without absolute certainty that they are doing the right thing and there's undeniable evidence against the enemy etc. Rather than go to "serve your country ".

I mean why risk your life and the lives of innocents, fighting another mans war on another mans word?

So, this is your idea of implementing foreign policy though the use of force:

The Government of the day decide that they would quite like to regain, for the sake of argument, the Falkland Islands. So the Defence Sec asks the Chiefs of Staff that, if it's ok, we'd quite like your gang to pop to the other side of the world and sort out those Argies. The Chiefs of Staff then ask their generals to get the ballot papers out to the troops to vote on whether they feel like popping over to the Falklands to help out the islanders. If it's a yes, we won't interfere by giving you any direction, just do the best you can.

Doesn't really work, does it? Unfortunately, you forgo democracy when you join the military, so that everyone else can keep theirs.

I'm not sure if it was directed at you I won't be reading back through the comments to check.
