Chris Morris is a pretty boy. He is also rather opinionated and not a little brave to post his views about war and PTSD on social media. His comments have caused outrage and attracted over 82,000 views – coincidentally the same size as the British Army he has managed to offend.
But he does have a point. War is traumatic and there are consequences. One of which is that Chris is able to share his opinions and describe those who suffer with PTSD as “losers” without fear of retribution. Of course, Chris already knows this because he works for the UK Parliament. The same parliament that voted to send British troops to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Thanks to the courage of rough men standing ready to do violence on his behalf, Chris doesn’t have to do press ups for dead soldiers if he doesn’t want to.
SPIN ZHIRA: Old Man in Helmand is the unauthorised, unvarnished and irreverent story of one man’s midlife crisis on the front line of the most dangerous district in Afghanistan where the locals haven’t forgiven the British for the occupation of 1842 or for the Russian Invasion of 1979. Of course, all infidels look the same so you can’t really tell them apart.
