Opposite example set by British soldiers in Norway

Soldiers should use their weapons on the enemy.

By Walter Haan

In my last blog posting I talked about Britain's Prince Harry setting a good example that American leaders' families could follow. Then this comes in: "Eight British soldiers have been ordered home from Arctic training exercises in Norway after they reportedly stripped naked and urinated on each other in a bar."

I thought soldiers were supposed to use their weapons on the enemy.

The eight British soldiers had reportedly been ordered home from Arctic training exercises in Norway after the incident. They were arrested by Norwegian police following what the authorities declared was inappropriate behavior. The eight soldiers were engineers from a commando regiment.

A Norwegian police spokesman in the town of Harstad, Norway, the nearest town to military bases, said they were accustomed to this kind of behavior by British soldiers.
