Disgusting — Brits treat their returning soldiers horribly
Posted by mesablue on January 5, 2008
Scores of soldiers flying home from Afghanistan on Christmas leave were ordered to change out of their uniforms on a freezing runway before being allowed into a civilian airport terminal.
Troops were told not to be seen in public in their uniforms – which they had worn with pride while risking their lives during months of intense fighting against the Taliban.
If this were an isolated incident, it would be easy to write this off as a mistake or misunderstanding. But, it’s already happened a couple of times in Seattle and once in California, that I remember — while escorting the body of a fallen comrade.
Just mind numbingly callous. But, don’t forget — they support our troops.
Thanks to Michelle Malkin
