All the talk you have heard about the army defending Queen and Country or keeping the people of Britain safe is bollocks. The British Army exists to go to war on behalf of the UK Government.
Since 2001 the British Army has been used covertly or overtly to attack Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen. None of these countries posed a threat to the people of Britain. Our wars have nothing to do with defending the people of the British Isles.
DON’T GO TO WAR, DON’T JOIN THE ARMY.
