Well, I hope there's more to this story than a pampered officer's whining. When you're part of a recon team what he's crying about goes w/ the territory.
Mind you, I'm not saying that the Brit brass hats commanding him on the particular fool's errand he was involved in were commendable or anything, but geeessshhhh, have things degenerated so badly for Western militaries that if they don't have overwhelming air support whenever they temselves get into a pickle and snap their well-manicured fingers, it amounts to craven "betrayal."
IMHO, the "betrayal" was sending the troops to SW Asia in the first place while London, Leeds, Wolverhampton, B'ham, etc., are overrun w/ 3rd world vermin!
When will these military men face facts?
