    Hmmm....

    Maybe I should go on under and assumed Identity and tell them if they don't shut up about "Us Rangers" Fighting in Iraq!! They'll wake up with me cutting their useless Brains off from the rest of their Bodies!!!

    OK this thread is going way off topic, but just for informational purposes:

    Article 40:
    6. 1° The State guarantees liberty for the exercise of the following rights, subject to public order and morality:

    i. The right of the citizens to express freely their convictions and opinions.

    The education of public opinion being, however, a matter of such grave import to the common good, the State shall endeavour to ensure that organs of public opinion, such as the radio, the press, the cinema, while preserving their rightful liberty of expression, including criticism of Government policy, shall not be used to undermine public order or morality or the authority of the State.

    The publication or utterance of blasphemous, seditious, or indecent matter is an offence which shall be punishable in accordance with law


    No country allows free speech to compromise national security issues.

    Yeah, but I believe that his freedom of speech point was in relation to talking about personal experiences in more secretive units

    Free speach and Freedom of Information are two very different things

    Hey Kermit,

    It might not say "freedom of speech" in Bunreacht....but if you look up article 40, sec.6,1,i.
    "...right of citizens to express freely their convictions and opinions..."

    I know it's a little off thread, but just in case anyone thought that they didn't have a constitutional right of free speech etc

    Later, boys and girls.

    I think it was a favourite phrase of Hitler's, wasn't it!!!!! IMO, the recruitment, selection and basic training procedure for the ARW should be public knowledge. Come to think of it, it all probably is.

    I can see the need to keep operational issues under wraps, but the PDF/RDF have this obsession with secrecy which borders on the ridiculous. Official policy is not that restrictive, (from what i can remember anyway), but all these jumped up snots at a lot of units think they are guarding the keys to the "Armageddeon Machine" or something.

    Anyway, rant over.

    Freedom of Information does not apply, and we do not mention the Freedom of Speech in our Constitution, unlike our American cousins, so it's different.

    Obviously you have never heard of "Freedom of Information" or even freedom of speech. What do you want, martial law.
    Any schoolboy can give you the SAS's orbat, the location of it's headquarters, details on it's training and roles and much more besides. The SAS are not happy with this level of public disclosure, and offending ex-members have been excluded because of it.

    The same cannot be said of the ARW, it's a relatively unknown quantity. This affords them a level of protection that the SAS have lost, and it should be maintained as long as possible.

    Have you ever heard of "In the interests of national security"?
