Open to correction on this (obviously) but I think the principle is that if the alleged victims are named, so too should be the alleged perpetrator.

The Brits have to everything they can to paint themselves as the hero's of history.
No accountability, piecemeil tokenism of one prosecution, we'll probably hear how ill this paratrooper now is and how he's unfit to stand trial.

If there's a prosecution coming down the tracks, then are we even allowed to discuss the actions of Soldier F?

It wouldn't be nice if he got off on the basis that due to public comment, he couldn't get a fair trial.

Once it's not spoiled by people denying the injustice and saying "what about the ra?" and "Time to move on", I don't think so.

my guess is they'll say he was recently diagnosed with some illness, and his doctors will supply the necessary medical evidence. probably why they just choose him to prosecute.

a slap on the wrist will follow, and the usual branches of the establishment will declare him a mistreated hero.

?? That's the whole point....

To a professionally trained armed soldier (hammer,as you put it) , innocent civilians in an urban environment do not look like targets ( nails,to use your jargon)



Do you accept that as fact?
