    Ok keep your hair on. I was just thinking about the Graphs and charts we were presented with back in 2008...they looked like armageddon. I was enjoying the read while having a drink. Afsakiđ!

    Sometimes it's just a case of people dictating to others what they 'want' to be true, instead of what actually 'is' true.

    Cases in point is the military mindset that can be wrong for a lifetime and not just 30 years. Sometimes the military mind is at a disadvantage in wider circles of conversations and discussion. That being because that which comes down from above is NOT to be questioned. Therefore, it would be quite unusual if you were voicing any opinion of your own, as opposed to the opinion of the top brass.

    I don't have to make any case that some top Generals have been completely wrong all their lives. All that's necessary is to not name the country the General works for. Sometimes the corporal who's been in the service for a year is more correct. So stop the bullshit of trying to put a feather in your own cap all the time!

    I stand willingly waiting to be corrected. Or banned from the forum for subversive thinking, whatever comes first?

    I read the signature and saw the humour. Humility is a good quality unfortunately not all of us know its existence...
