I take on board what you say, however, when it comes to the fighting spirit of soldiers, loyalty and trust are high on the agenda.
I am well aware of the meaning of loyalty and trust; this coupled with the strength of the traditional family links within a Scottish Regiment give the Scottish soldier something to live, fight and die for.
At present, the British Government is destroying all the great traditions of the Scottish Regiments (and probably the English ones as well). †Their proposals to merge two great Scottish Regiments into one and then form the rest into a super division are ill thought out. †
They seem to think that a move to smart weapons is the way forward. †I ask you, without soldiers on the ground, where will the Intel come from? †Who will verify targets for the smart bombs?
In the changing world today, there is still a need for the foot soldier. †Smart weapons cannot fight a war against terrorists or guerrillas. †The only way to combat this is by getting soldiers out on patrol in areas where T&G activity is suspected.
I could go on but I wonít.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion.
