The admirable restraint of the British Army



Faced with an obvious target - a group of treacherous Islamist blowhards - it is a testimony to the remarkable restraint of our army that members of the 2nd Battalion The Royal Anglian Regiment treated them with lofty disdain and did not, with bayonets fixed, charge the assorted fuzzy-wuzzies up the high street and run them through with cold steel.

The BBC didn’t want you to see this though (on the news there was lots of talk about ‘anti-war protesters’ as though it was Canon Collins or Bruce Kent). These men are not 'anti-war'. They love war - would love a Holy War. They're just, like, a little busy at the moment, er, claiming jobseekers allowance, paintballing and reading the Koran. But they're ready to answer the call of the Prophet. Oh yes.

Looks like the natives are getting restless, though and it is a matter of time before this provocation, if left unchecked, yields its ugly fruit.

Pray the day never comes.

Paulinus,

Watching that video, I found it strangely comforting.

The possibility of disorder and unrest is, of course, to be deplored; but how much more fortunate you and I and your readers are than others, to have been given the great gifts we have been given, and to look for a world beyond this one.

I warmly welcome the homecoming parades of troops from Afghanistan and Iraq. I long to see them all marching through the cheering crowds, having brought themselves home in accordance with their oaths to defend this Realm, thus causing, without the firing of a shot, the collapse of our rancid Political Class.

The demonstrations against them come from quarters with which I have no sympathy, and in any case they are counterproductive and aimed at the wrong target. The real Butcher of Fallujah is now a fabulously rich man as a result of his crimes.

And while the real Butcher of Basra is still a better Prime Minister than would be David Cameron (who was pleased to tell the House of Commons that the demonstrations were only possible because of the Iraq War!), that is not saying anything, and does not alter the fact that we all know who the real Butcher of Basra is.
