Right then. Stand by your beds. We keep hearing that morale within the armed forces is "fragile" or "in danger" So man up you pussies. What's the score? If Jack/Royal/Perce isn't dripping then there's a problem, you lot are dripping like a whore's fanny so stands to reason everything is fairly hunky dory. Yep, you go on Ops, bit like the treadmill of Norway/Ireland/Norway/Ireland. Ok, you get the media attention telling you it's dangerous and you're very brave courageous little thrusters but what's all this sh1te by the top brass in the daily rags? So, you joined the forces and end up on operations...? Hello... ? lets face facts. The vast majority of the military current and past are not going to be the wrong end of a two way rifle range, the kit the lads have at the sharp end is pretty shithock, you are paid far better than your predecesors, live in better accomm and get better scran....None of which is a bad thing. So why all the dripping? You've got the toys, you get to use them and you get paid well. Like you give a fcuk if you cant sustain a long term defence commitment....aint your draft. Morale will suffer....... my arrse.
