How Do You Fake A Missing Limb?

Hmm, typing with a missing finger are we?

Holy covert spooks Batman. OK here’s the thing Ministry of Defence people, it is highly unlikely that compensation cheats joined the forces to rip you off. They are doing quite nicely back home without having to dodge bullets in Iraq and Afganistan first, thank you very much. But it has been revealed that the British MoD are using their undercover spying powers to weed out would-be injured soldier fraudsters  by any means possible, including video surveillence, wire tapping and scanning phone records. How the hell do you fake a friggin war injury?  Hmm and anyone claiming compo better be friggin careful, you are being watched! Over 200 injured soldiers have received threatening letters warning them they could possibly be under surveillance. Nothing like knowing they care! It seems the MoD are using the controversial Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (RIPA), which was originally set up to help the police and MI5 monitor terrorists in the UK, to allow them to spy. Hmm, if that had paid this much attention to Osama Bin Laden maybe they would have…ah never mind!

    Don’t worry I’d never do that, I just wouldn’t be going to those war ravaged parts of the world. Wild horses wouldn’t get me there. Israel as had the draft since 1949 and it’s now finding that a huge majority of the ‘draftable’ population are refusing to participate and are spending time in jail rather than go and fight for their country which never stops fighting. They have had enough and I can’t say I blame them. Yep draft dodger I’d be. No compensation for me just time behind bars courtesy of the relevant government.
    Apparently in Israel the stigma of draft dodging is even lessening because the people are just like us and want peace in their lives and who can blame them?

    When I was just back from Nam, I was sent to Colorado Springs. Some awesome skiing resorts there, and some awesome snow bunnies as well. Not being skiers, my buddy and myself purchased inflatable leg supports for broken legs, lounged around the Breckenridge resort bar, drinking hot toddies, and hitting on said snow bunnies.

    Yes, I know: sexist to the max, but, damn, it was fun!

  3. Ahhhahahha I have been there too Jammers. I, however, didn’t think of that! Nice move.

    I went out with a guy who did 13 months in Nam. 12 for fighting and one for smoking hooch. He didn’t even fight and did 12 months in a field work shop in Nui Dat. When he came home the government paid for a 12 month course in hairdressing . You were able to do a course of your choice after doing National Service. Ah those were the good old days when guys were taught how to iron shirts and spit polish boots. I love a man in uniform. lol
