Good Grief!!!!

Virtual practice makes perfect for new soldiers – 08 Mar 2008 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

I read this story with increasing incredulity. It is apparent that our societal illness of PC claptrap has now seriously affected our Army. Soldiers are now being trained with bloody air guns to see if they can actually handle firing live rounds.

FFS they aren’t namby-pamby poofters, they are soldiers. Get out the blanks and the live ammo and get them on the range not some extra bloody big video game.

Good grief our troops are being molly coddled.

With plans to build similar ranges at Burnham and Linton camps, one day soldiers at all three camps will be able to play real life, real time war games against each other without ever venturing out into the wind, rain and cold.

As “Chopper” would say HTFU. Pathetic!
