    So you can be on TV starring in Top Gear, trying to (pretend to) shoot Jeremy Clarkson and fiddle around with some pretty cool machinery all at someone else's expense.

    Simples.

    That's because you're Indian, not British.
    I have Indian friends who consider themselves as British as me (I'm white). At the time of the 'British Nationality Act 1948' citizens of British colonies such as India were entitled to a British passport. It is possibe to be British with Indian herritiage :yep:

    War is never the answer, still I think we have to show our respect for people who choose to defend the country with their body but I do not think that they are more or less heroes than doctors or teachers are.

    3 words: French Foreign legion - seriously when Legionaires get back from deployment they recieve more respect from the french public than british soldiers do from their own country.

    But seriously I think most people (including me!) are very greatfull for our troops
    well no, youre wrong there

    the legion are the first into any conflict france is involved in, why? because they dont care, i mean who would care about a bunch of foreigners getting killed? and as for the repsect of the public, thats completely dependant on the part of france they are in, in the south where the regiments are based theyre not very well liked :wink2:

    I was talking to someone who said they wanted to join the army to "kill some Pakis". I was going to correct him and say you would more likely be kill some Afgans but I didn't.
    What a load of tosh.

    You assume they're not selfish. It's an exciting career in itself, as well as a wage earner.
    Hardly, the wages are crap. I would be on a lot more in civilian street in my selected profession. Generally it's a lot more to do with pride than selfishness.
