  • Irish soldiers in YouTube charge - From News Section

    News Post

    Reding this article it looks like there being charged in regards to the CoS's letter:

    One of the soldiers is expected to be charged with conduct which would prejudice the good order and discipline of the Defence Forces. He is also charged with uploading the video contrary to instructions.

      S197 (b)(2) (a)

      In that he was a thick ctun in control of a camera.

      its a storm in a tea cup

      let the boys own CO hear the charges

      lets not feed any information to those lads from the press who

      lurk in the shadows.

      We in the DF are a family - lets keep the family secrets safe
      Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
      Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
      The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
      The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
      The best lack all conviction, while the worst
      Are full of passionate intensity.

        I would agree with that except for the fact that he exposed himself and the DF to public ridicule by posting it on youtube.
        Cry "havoc!", and let slip the dogs of war!

          Yes - and Military Justice will slap the guilty bastadr

          why feed the feeding frenzy and give rag writers

          more ammunition to hit the DF with

          loose lips sink ships

          say something on here

          see it exagerated tommorow by the red tops
          Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
          Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
          The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***

            Reading the article it looks like those involved are on orders and nothing more.

            Jaysus I've done worse myself and it never made the news.

              You're right Goldie, we've all seen your cav video!
              It is only by contemplation of the incompetent that we can appreciate the difficulties and accomplishments of the competent.

                You see goldie, you didn't post it on youtube.....kept it on the QT.....showed some reverence and decorum....

                I'm thinking "throw the book at those gombeens!".

                And I can't say I support hedgie's "we're a family hush! hush!" stance, I'm a beleiver in Justice Before All and if that attitude gets taken, then the public can't trust the DF. And that is far worse.

                But I'm not qualified to comment, me being civvie.

                If you have to do it, you always have to do it right. Either it makes a difference, or it’s good practice so that when it does make a difference, it gets done right.

                  What you mean kept it quiet?

                  Its on a publically accessable web site.

                  If you believe such things are wrong then so be it.

                  I am sure it the enquiry had found that the locals were scared or felt any ill towards the Irish because of this that the lads would be hung out to dry. As it is they are getting an army slap on the wrist that will probably mekr then PFEs.

                  If the DF was to chase every youtube and bebo poster out of the DF only us old lads would be left.

                    Being an idiot is not a crime.

                    Somebody will always find a reason to ridicule the DF, usually arising from an event organised by the DF.

                      Due process at the appropriate level of the offence is being done, there is no need to blow it up into something it is not.

                        It's the due process that is blowing this sh1t up into something it is not.

                          Damn right Bravo20. Agree fully.

                            All the publicity is down to the charges i.e. Due Process.

                              Well, the OIC will ignore the (very very little) media interest, and he will pass judgement on what to do with the wrong-doers, and that will be the end of it. The only extra coverage will be for the story to be held as an example of what not to do on Foreign Deployments.

                              This story ends with these fellas getting their just-desserts. Case closed.
