the fact he single handedly stopped WWIII doesn't really surprise me
General Sir Michael David "Mike" Jackson GCB, CBE, DSO, ADC, DL, (born 21 March 1944) is a retired British army officer, formerly Chief of the General Staff. He was formerly commander of KFOR in Kosovo as well as being an IFOR commander in Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as adjutant 1 PARA in Derry during the events of Bloody Sunday and a company commander with the Parachute Regiment in South Armagh during the Warrenpoint Ambush.
He's been in the news quite a lot over the past decade.
that have managed to completely change my opinion on them solely based on their tv appearances, years ago I would of said 'yeah right, cunt' now I'll just say 'd'awww ^.^'
WW3 or "You're beautiful"? It's a tough call
If WW3 deaths and casualties would be below 300 million, I'll take WW3.
1) Middle East crisis sorted, 2) No time to make records. Win!
In all seriousness though, fair play to him on this one.
