Interesting take on things from Dead Horse. That's the very sort of psychopath cum peace-keeper we've had to put up with over the years. Fighting a war with one hand tied behind his back and fantasising about murdering somebody with a bullet to the brain. I assume that that's what Dead Horse refers to when he writes about " a 7.62 sleeping pill" Such charming army slang ! War is war and all that.
Successive UK governments always maintained though that , during the course of the recent troubles in Ireland , British soldiers were not taking part in a war , but assisting the police force to keep the peace and stop the mad paddies from murdering each other. Isn't that what they told you all you when they sent you out on to the streets, Dead Horse?
