    Default 1 Para should now be disbanded



    Surely justice now demands that the disgraced 1 para now be disbanded?

    There is a precedent in the Commonwealth where a Canadian parachute unit was disbanded.

    Somalia Affair - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    "The Canadian Airborne Regiment was a Canadian Forces formation created on April 8, 1968. It was not an administrative regiment in the commonly accepted British Commonwealth sense, but rather a tactical formation manned from other regiments and branches. It was disbanded in 1995 after the Somalia Affair."

    "Questions were asked about why 2 Commando was chosen for that mission despite disciplinary problems at the time. Perhaps most damaging to the leadership of the Canadian military was how it reacted after the events became public, as accusations of covering up the event surfaced."

    Parallels with Bloody Sunday, including the cover up.

    Williewatcher,

    How about disbanding Sinn Fein?

    Who's membership have killed far more 'innocents' than the Parachute Regiment.

    So you have the numbers of innocents murdered by the "PARASITE REGIMENT" to hand then BC,and not just in terms of Ireland,the numbers since the Dirt were founded,if so produce them and back up your diatribe.

    Well if you want to move the goal posts to fit your argument will we be counting every life lost in the name of Irish Republicanism too?

    BC, Sinn Féin is to the IRA, what the British Government is to 1 Para.

    Now, on that basis, why would Sinn Féin be disbanded?

    So, going by your impeccable logic, the Tories should also be disbanded.

    Uh oh.

    What about... what about... what about... what about... what about...

    Do you northerners (from both camps) ever get tired of it?
