UK Army probes video of Labor leader photo used for target practice

Britain’s military says it is investigating after soldiers were filmed apparently using a picture of Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn for target practice. Footage posted on social media shows members of the Parachute Regiment in Afghanistan shooting at an image of Corbyn. The British Army said Wednesday that the apparent behavior ’is totally unacceptable’.

Sounds like protected free speech if it were in the US. Too bad you guys over the pond don't care about human rights anymore.

Why ? What’s the problem? Corbyn hung out with people that used real life British soldiers as targets. Don’t fuck with British soldiers Cobyn long memories long memories.

Corbyn is a scumbag. A Stalinist and an Islamist apologist. A real pity one of those bullets wasn't actually for him.

He hung out with people who used British soldiers as targets for real so what does he expect hugs? He’s a terrorist sympathetic.

Lighten up! They put their lives on the line, and if they want to have a little fun with a joke LET THEM! It was just a moment of comraderie in an otherwise rough deployment. Give them a break, or you go do that job and see how you like it. You'll be looking for a bit of silliness to take the edge off too.

He's not the civilian in charge of the army nor is he PM. I was still serving during the 2016 election and anti-Clinton memes were all over my base. Nothing official of course, but we prayed for our god-emperor's coming.

They will look into it and replace the Corbin photos with Trump. It's not that they are shooting at photo it's that they are shooting at the wrong photo. Hypocrites.

Well, he is a communist and is a complete mockery of Britain's past. I'd also say it falls under freedom of speech, but that doesn't exist in the UK.
