British Marine gets life sentence for killng our enemies !
This man is a HERO !
He should be awarded medals NOT be punished
for killing those who support terrorists and want
to DESTROY us !
As a British citizen,journalist and former navy officer I am appalled at the outrageous treatment of this Marine !
My Stepfather was a Royal Marine.
The British government send these fine, brave commandos to far away deserts to fight beragged fanatical lunatics who rape,beat and murder children and women and under the circumstances,there is NO excuse for punishing ANY Marine or soldier for ANY reason whatsoever !
100,000 call for cut in his sentence and this writer concurs with them !
Sergeant Alexander Blackman's wife Claire praised the 'outstanding' backing given to the campaign to have his ten-year jail sentence cut for killing an insurgent in Afghanistan.He should be RELEASED immediately and reinstated with FULL honors and apologies !
The Elite Commandos
The operational involvement of The Royal Marines on Active Service requires that they should always be maintained at a suitably approved strength to meet the future needs of Britain.
No other country can produce a more loyal and gallant professional unit of soldiers that can be called upon at very short notice to operate to specific requirements in any part of the globe at any time and with destinction.
Since the beginning of the history of The Royal Marines in 1664 they have continually fought for their country in every war with barely a year going by without them being involved in active service in some part of the world. And that is something no other military unit can lay claim to.
The role of the Commando has led the Royal Marines to adapt from sea going detatchments of the Royal Navy (although still Royal Navy) to the all terrane fighting Commando of today.
A Proven Powerful Corps
The Marine himself has to be a volunteer for his tasks are of a hazardous nature. Only a person willing to face these ordeals can be expected to take the very high risks involved.
This rare type of person along with his arduous training has produced the finest combatant that history has ever produced.
The Royal Marines of the past have fought on many occasions along side sailors of the Royal Navy and together they have fought all over the world to bring prizes back to Britain. The Royal Marine Commandos have fought in 147 battles alongside the Army Commandos in World War II. Needless to say they have fought alongside other Marines, Commandos and many other Units from Britain and around the world.
Casualty of war: Royal Marine who murdered Taliban fighter jailed for life
Alexander Blackman was filmed shooting wounded fighter in September 2011
Blackman's identity was made public after he was convicted of murder
He has been handed a life sentence and will serve a minimum of 10 years
The Royal Marine and his wife say they are 'devastated' by the sentence
Blackman has also been dismissed with disgrace from the Royal Marines
But his commanding officer pledged his ‘full support’ for his comrade
Other supporters have vented their anger at the sentence on Twitter
These are Britain's finest and they are also just HUMAN ! They make mistakes like all of us but should NEVER be punished after what they have had to encounter including the loss of their mates
Every British citizen should stand behind this Marine who should NEVER have been subjected to such harsh reprimand and punishment for fighting against those disgusting Taliban and their likes !
Marine commandos are Britain's fighting heroes
don't punish them for doing what they have to do !
It is NOT right to shoot a wounded soldier but considering all the facts we should feel sympathy for the Marines........NOT our enemies who do MUCH worse !
The British rulers of India had considerable experience of the difficulty of trying to fit Afghanistan into their system of imperial diplomacy. In the process they made the same move three times within eighty years. If the earlier Afghan Wars are remembered at all, it is usually the first and last that are recalled. The First Afghan War of 1839-42 provided examples galore of monumentally bad diplomacy, worse strategy, chaotic military organisation and inept generalship. Its spectacular climax was the annihilation of an entire British Army during its mid-winter retreat from Kabul. The brief Third Afghan War of 1919 earns a footnote in the military history of the twentieth century for its early use of aircraft to bomb civilian targets.
