    Me too Cap. What I heard was very clear, fck you we will do what the hell we like, we run the military and we will deploy them as and when we want, and there nothing you can do about it. I live in England and I'm sure its the same policy. They just need to pick up a few troops on the way and its "hi ho, hi ho, its off to work we go". Not good, not good at all.
