What exactly is wrong with the British Army?

I've heard loads of people say that the army kills loads of people and whatnot, but I can't seem to find any evidence for what they say...There are so few news reports about how the British killed people in Afghanistan for example...

You only hear about the deaths of soldiers, or bomb blasts (set up by the Afghans?)

I also talked to a friend joining the navy, and they said that none of the good things that the armed forces do is publicised, and that they do a lot of good too...

So what recent proofs are there that they're "evil" as some say...PROOF

    Dude, people in Iraq are killing each other for sectarian reasons.. Americans and Brits did commit crimes and errors during the war but that contributes to less than 1/10 of the whole bloodshed.

    People wear explosive belts and bomb themselves in markets in the middle of innocent people, or detonate a car near a primary school belonging to people of a certain sect..

    but a lot of us muslims can't face the truth, which is that we kill each other because of the extremism that is bred and fed in our communities..

    "kill the shi'a collaborators" is what they use as a reason in Iraq. that's why the kurds are safe in their homes because they are sunnis.. the numbers of sectarian casualties tells you all, really.

    To most of us British,the troops are doing a great job.

    We do not need to be told,

    But it would be nice if the media did publish some of the good things.

    In the USA we hear mostly the bad. That is because good deeds do not sell news papers. There is nothing wrong with the British Military, they are just as brave and hard working as any other. Next time you see a veteran of the wars shake their hand and say" thanks for the hard work."

    Did you ever read any British history? Not ancient, just recent, say going back a few hundred years.

    A lot of civilians got injured and killed with smart missiles in Afghanistan, then both the UK and US abandoned the place to fight an illegal war in Iraq where more civilians suffered.

    the brits and yanks are putting their lives and treasure to risk helping the afghans and iraq's learn to live under a democracy. muslims are just brainwashed with no proof for what they claim.
