Senseless Discourse

Noel Gallagher :
"The troops want to go, all they want to do is fight! They're soldiers. They're loving it, until they get shot -- then they're claiming compensation.
"If you're bothered about getting shot -- here's a thing -- don't join the army."

Private Lionel O'Connor, 22, who had his leg amputated after being caught up in a roadside bomb attack in Basra, suggested Gallagher should go to Iraq to see what conditions were like for soldiers.
O'Connor, who is recovering at a military rehabilitation centre in Surrey following the attack in May, said: ``If he has got a comment like that, send him out there.''

Excellent point, both of them.
