TheFlyingOnion Sun 29-May-11 21:59:02

don't be such a dick

biscuit

southeastastra Sun 29-May-11 21:59:53

blimey can you explain your answer?

stoatie Sun 29-May-11 21:59:58

words fail me at your crassness and insensitivity

TattyDevine Sun 29-May-11 22:00:43

I think the OP probably means well

southeastastra Sun 29-May-11 22:01:31

what is crass about suggesting we shouldn't be sending teenage boys out there to fight??

crass is not questioning it??

hairfullofsnakes Sun 29-May-11 22:01:42

agree with Stoatie, I don't often say this but what a completely nasty and shit thread to start - you are something else. Horrible and completely stupid and disrespectful.

hairfullofsnakes Sun 29-May-11 22:02:41

if that is what you meant, then word your thread appropriately not in the crass way you did. what you put and how you said it was awful.

southeastastra Sun 29-May-11 22:02:58

am in a parallel universe, it mn really this thick these days?

UrsulaBuffay Sun 29-May-11 22:02:59

The OP is being misread, or rather not read & only the title is being read.

<baffles self>

MadamMemoo Sun 29-May-11 22:03:14

I get your sentiment but you could have worded your thread title a little more sensitively.

stoatie Sun 29-May-11 22:03:20

It is not the sentiment of what you are saying it is how you have worded it.

HorseWhisperer Sun 29-May-11 22:03:25

well you don't have to. If it is on TV switch over. If it is in the paper don't read the story.

Moronic thread title. You must be a real twit.

hairfullofsnakes Sun 29-May-11 22:03:59

again, agree with stoatie

TheFlyingOnion Sun 29-May-11 22:04:29

I don't think I need to explain myself tbh OP.

Mollydollydoll Sun 29-May-11 22:04:30

OP what a crass thing to say, you an army wife? Nope I guessed so. My DP is in the army so I know how it feels when they go on tour. What a stupid stupid thing to say

southeastastra Sun 29-May-11 22:04:35

<faints> am genuinely amazed how wrongly this has been taken!!

stoatie Sun 29-May-11 22:05:13

I am not thick - my OH was in the services - has fought in conflict. I do agree with your viewpoint but not how you have worded the title -

TattyDevine Sun 29-May-11 22:05:23

Does anybody like hearing about soldiers being killed in Afghanistan, then?

CrapBag Sun 29-May-11 22:05:34

I think the OP means that we shouldn't be out there fighting and people losing their lives, therefore we need to pull out, not that she doesn't want to hear about soldiers dying FFS.

DoingTheBestICan Sun 29-May-11 22:05:50

I dont think op means she is sick of hearing about it i think she means she is sick of hearing about the total waste of young lives who have their whole lives ahead of them still.

Forgive me if i am wrong op.

TheFlyingOnion Sun 29-May-11 22:05:59

can I put inot words what everyone else is thinking

and say, fuck off troll and go and annoy 4chan?

Wottywot Sun 29-May-11 22:06:06

I guess when you hear it every day you grow so used to it, it kind of goes over your head. I know its terrible for the families involved but when it happens almost every day I guess it makes you wonder.
If I am true to myself I think it's a lost cause and one by one our men are slipping away.

MadamMemoo Sun 29-May-11 22:06:51

She isn't a troll, she just worded it badly

TheFlyingOnion Sun 29-May-11 22:06:55

well, crapbag and doingthebest thats not actually what the OP said...
