Army troops cuts - while the Army's at overstretch yet again.

Once again, the government of the day is being a bunch of hypocritical wotsits again. I can't write what I want to say - I'd probably be done for a public order offence or something!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: You cannot trust a politician - not even as far as you might throw one.


Troops axed in Army cutback plan

Up to 500 soldiers are to lose their jobs in the Army as the Ministry of Defence "rebalances" troop numbers.

Good Lord, they're fighting hard in Afghanistan, they're trying to keep the peace in Iraq, and they're deployed in countless places around the globe.

Their numbers have been cut more and more since the end of the Cold War (and strangely, the Armed Forces are involved in more conflicts now that's over - so much for a "Peace Dividend").

So, now the bloody bean-counting morons at the Ministry of Limp Wringing Hands wants to cut their numbers still further?!

Will someone PLEASE force some common bloody sense into those gits in the government?

Preferably before they cut the forces completely out of being able to field even one soldier with as much as a pea shooter?
