    Oh dear he had to walk along a cold and windy path. That is nothing compared to the Terror felt by the innocent civilians held hostage by the invading Argentinian forces. Has he ever apologized for threatening the peace loving Falkland islanders. Oh was he “just following orders”, heard that one before.

    Sigh... He was conscripted. I doubt that his main ambition in life was to invade the Falkland Islands and terrify it's inhabitants, and I would be surprised if the Islanders themselves blame him personally for the horrendous experience they were subjected to.

    @1, 4

    Well I'm glad we agree that even the lowest rank soldier is to be held fully responsible for the actions of their superiors and government.

    That is why every single solitary British soldier is a murderer given the proven genocide the Brits commited in Iraq, but also a bunch of losers and cowards: losers for losing the Iraq War (there is neither democracy nor peace there now), and cowards for running away from the mess they created and now exists there.

    Pathetic, miserable, worthless wastes of humanity, the British soldier. A force for evil in this world since circa 1500.

    This from the man who blames EVERY European ALIVE today for ANYTHING bad that ever happened in the world.

    Hypocritical aren't you?

    As for this story, it appears to be about a loser whose been brought in to coach another bunch of losers.

    Hardly worth mentioning, really.
