Red Friday….Green Beer Day …

Posted by on Mar 17, 2017 in The Invisible Army, Uncategorized | 0 comments

On this Red Friday, I would like to share this story with you. This three word headline should never have been needed.

                                                       Justice at last

NO SOLDIER should be charged for carrying out his/her battlefield duties. I realise that Sgt Blackman would have filled out his battlefield/incident report after the heavy action in Afghanistan. His conviction for MURDER has been overturned and he is now facing Manslaughter. Again this should never have happened to a soldier of NATO.

The witch hunts put forward by the enemy, be they Afghan Iraqi or any other foreign national should be taken with the proverbial pinch of salt.

Sadly countries have paid huge amounts to enemy combatants, for example the latest UK Jihadi who was a suicide bomber was part of a Million Pound Pay off upon his release from Guantanamo. Then he returned to fighting our allies with a cowardly bomb attack. In Canada CONVICTED MURDERER and terrorist Omar Khadr is suing Canada for his holiday in Guantanimo. Not forgetting the fact that he was recently operated on at public expense in a 19 hour shoulder operation. Many Canadians and especially Veterans are still awaiting either funds or medical assistance. Never the less this will continue to sadly be the case unless our Governemnt readjust their thinking towards Canadian veterans and not self confessed murderers.

 

Jailed Royal Marine A could be free ‘within weeks’ as his murder conviction is reduced to manslaughter after 1,616 days of hell

I send a prayer to Sgt Blackman and honourable Marine and to his family who have been mistreated  for the past 4/5 years.

GREEN BEER no matter whether one is actually of Irish Birth St Patrick’s day is celebrated in most of the free world.

To my friend Marilyn who sent me a quiz on St Patrick….no I did not google the answers but only scored 3 points. Here is the link to the ROMAN who is a SAINT of Ireland and all things Irish.

As for Green Beer it was a tradition in the Army to add food colouring to the draft on the  Saint Paddy’s night at the mess… I leave you to reminisce about the consequences the day after.

Erin go Bragh :  is an English corruption of the phrase Éirinn go Brách in the Irish language. … The term brách is equivalent to “eternity” or “end of time”, meaning the phrase may be translated literally as “Ireland until eternity” or “Ireland until the end (of time)”. Have a great Day.

To our military and their families, stay safe, positive and be proud of our military.

Nil Sine Labore
