Soldiers are expected to fight like gentlemen compared to the terrorist scum they are up against - on Bloody Sunday, in Iraq, and now in Afghanistan. David Vance notes that the BBC is particularly two-faced -
"The MSM in general, and the BBC in particular, pretend that the Queensbury Rules exist in the theatre of war. We send our lions into battle and then deny them the right to kill before they are killed. Naturally, BBC pacifism runs deep and no time deeper than the approach to Remembrance Sunday, The Taliban do not fight in uniform, they are not signatories to the Geneva Conventions, they show no mercy to our soldiers and yet they must be delighted to see the loathing of our military that those like the BBC exude at every opportunity."
(And I note that the Taliban aren't required to wear helmet-mounted cameras to stop them committing atrocities.)
