I posted this on FB.
Before I start I must proclaim that as far as I’m aware no Afghan ever hurt me.
I’m going to sound very naive. Is there a way of getting a message of support to Sergeant Blackman?
How do you contact him etc?
I’m usually quiet on matters such as these – my posts are usually drivel or feeble attempts at humour.
I’d like to be able to express my feelings to him, which may be in line with thousands of others.
It just seems so unfair to serve your country for 15 years in one of the most professional and formidable units in the UK then to be treated like this.
If we don’t want our hero soldiers, airman and sailors killing anyone then stop sending then needlessly to ‘warzones’ and having to fight with one arm behind their backs fighting under silly one sided rules.
If the boot was on the other foot the Afghan guy would be getting a medal.
My stance is this: we need to stop interfering in other countries. Get out. We have no business being there. If you do ‘Cry havoc and let loose the dogs of war’, don’t bitch and moan when it all goes wrong, and certainly don’t persecute those who have done your dirty work.
