    They were once the greatest fighting force, but the current recruiting is geared to undoing that. It will make them ineffective & these adverts must have their enemies rubbing their hands.

    What they should be appealing to is tough white males into hunting, mma or rugby, etc.
    Our beauty is our power, our strength. We can’t allow them to change us, to lessen us. I will never grant them that satisfaction, and neither should you!

    The USSR learned the hard way that all these social science experiments don't work in real life.
    Now it's the wests turn. Even I'm starting to feel sorry for the UK.

    I would not waste your tears-you have enough problems in the USA to concern you.

    It does not really matter.

    Seems that one of the faces on the posters is not happy with it :

    A Scots Guardsman has said he plans to resign from the British Army after his face was used without his knowledge to recruit ‘snowflakes’ and turn them into soldiers. Stephen McWhirter, 28, spoke out on Facebook after the controversial new Army recruitment posters were unveiled last week. He said he had no idea his image would be used in the drive targeting Generation Z that stated: ‘snowflakes – the army needs you and your compassion.’

    (...)

    Mr McWhirter, who joined the Army in 2016 and has protected the Queen at Buckingham Palace, said he will resign at the ‘earliest opportunity’. ‘Imagine the army taking a photo of you and writing “snow flake” in massive bold letters above your head. I’d be signed straight off,’ another soldier wrote in response to the poster. Mr McWhirter responded by writing: ‘Don’t f*****g worry, mate, I am.’
    At the bottom there are some reactions from politicians who ironically themselves are missing the point. To have an effective military those serving in it must embody certain values. And those conflict with the goals of those who want to create an 'inclusive' army.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.
    - Sir Richard Steele

    Yes unfortunately true
    (It doesn't matter how old the song is, I won't stop liking it).
