“The main task is to kill”: a scandal in Denmark over the announcement of a vacant company commander

76

A scandal erupted in Denmark over the announcement of a vacancy in the country's armed forces. The announcement was placed by the infantry battalion of the 1-th brigade of the royal life guard.


The announcement looked as follows:

We are looking for a company commander who understands that our main task - to kill - is so simple, very simple!

It is further noted that the tasks of the company commander of the specified unit include planning, preparing and conducting operations by personnel, and performing personnel tasks. It is added that at the moment 120 servicemen are serving in the company.

Continuation of the announcement:

Applicant, you should also understand that for military personnel you must become a leader and even a father who will be able to give advice, direct their activities, demand and take care.

When the announcement appeared in major Danish media, the Danish defense department realized it. It was decided to change the initial sentence in the announcement. So, the words "the main task is to kill" was replaced by "the main task is to defeat the enemy."

Danish journalists interviewed a man who allowed the announcement in its original form to be placed in the media. It turned out to be the battalion commander Lt. Col. Henrik Hwils. Kombat, answering reporters' questions, said that he so “wanted to clearly explain to applicants what profession they choose.”

A statement by Lt. Col. Hwilsom cites the Berlingske edition:

I think that this phrase of some may lead to reflection on what profession they choose. If we find ourselves in a state of war, such a person who has a job should not doubt the demand that we make - and that they must defeat the enemy they are facing. In war, we are not playing football, badminton or chess is going to play with the enemy ... Even when we go to the shooting range, we shoot at targets that mimic human figures. And in war, in any case, we will have to apply weapon.

        And I recall the public killing and cutting of a giraffe at the Copenhagen Zoo in 2014.
        The petition for saving the poor animal was then signed by as many as 27000 Danish citizens.

          Judging by the picture, Denmark, Austria and Spain eat the most meat in Europe.

          And if you are not a vegetarian, I consider unhealthy cynicism to protest against the slaughter of animals for meat.
          As for the article, she had fun. My grandfather taught me that the profession of a soldier is to defend the homeland.
          And in Denmark, it turns out - this is a profession to kill, or, as paraphrased, "to defeat enemies."

            Well then, take your children or grandchildren and take them to the slaughterhouse to save you from cynicism.

        Hmmm, but I naively thought that the military had slightly different tasks, including the company commander, to achieve certain goals and objectives, including humanitarian ones, and to "kill" it depending on the situation.
        The Dane’s announcement is essentially the announcement of an over-age child who has been on a business trip where a thread in Iraq has traveled a couple of times to patrol and imagines himself desperately steep and severe commando, so that the mirror cracked from his brutality. wassat

        The main task of a military man is to always be ready to defend his homeland. And protection in our time is especially a permanent state. And for the most part, it falls, thank God, in peacetime, albeit restless.

          However, Western countries today are characterized by using them not to defend their homeland, but to send them to hot spots where the task is unequivocal: to kill people whom they uniquely identify as enemies. what But the company competition for the commander is probably the cost of Western democracy. They would also give an opportunity to preschool children to choose the head of the kindergarten. lol

      all the wars of Denmark took place in the 17th century.

      Last, the war was in 1940 and lasted two hours. The Germans captured the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen, due to the massive bombardment on the morning of April 9, with one and a half tons of leaflets. The truth is that at 05:15 a civilian ship with an infantry regiment, a civilian icebreaker and two patrol ships arrived at the port. At that time, the Danish battleship Niels Yuel, two destroyers and a watchman, who in one salvo could have smashed the whole squadron to pieces, were not on the raid at the time, but they did not even uncover the guns. Having landed at the port, the Germans occupied customs, arrested two police officers, and captured the headquarters of the Danish army. At 7 a.m., the German ambassador threatened to bomb the city. And after 20 minutes, the king had already surrendered.

    Lucky Russia - never fought with Denmark!
    These guys are real beasts!
    It’s scary to think what would happen if the Danish hordes hit us ...
    True, after Ragnar Lodbroka in the 8th century besieged Paris, the Danes had few successes in the military field, almost zero ...
    Wars with Sweden for influence in the Baltic - lost.
    In the middle of the XIX century, butted with Prussia for Schleswig and Holstein, partially inhabited by Danes. In two wars - a complete failure, the desired provinces heroically lost. They became famous for their endless retreats into the country and the unexpected abandonment of defended cities. Warriors!
    In both world wars - embarrassment.
    In World War I, I was lucky - the Kaiser was not up to the pygmies, they sat in neutrality.
    But in the second ...
    Norwegian berserkers like lions, with the support of Britain and France, fought for several months with the then invincible Wehrmacht for their homeland.
    And Hitler did not even notice a country comparable in population to Denmark.
    Day - this is an assessment of the then Danish independence.
    Now in her bed in Amalienborg, Queen Margrethe of Denmark, at night, in a dream sees red and white Danish flags over the towers of the Kremlin. That's why they climb into the Baltic states ...
    Byu - bye, Margrethe! Sleep well.
    But someday you will need to wake up ...

    Denmark has always been an ally of Russia in all wars. We never officially fought, except for some minor skirmishes in the 17th century. Actually Nicholas II is half Dane). Now, Denmark is a country unfriendly to us. How much crap on SP-2.
    And about killing ... If only giraffes.
    Recently my son is in Denmark and ran into a giant demonstration in Copenhagen. With a big stage, musicians, ardent speakers. The reason is the struggle for the legalization of marijuana and other soft drugs as in Holland. The smoke over the protesters, as they say, stood like a rocker. This is what the Danes are most worried about. Therefore, the "killers" are recruited through newspapers)).

    The company officer on the ad ... Fine ... What is it that turns out, the platoon officers are incapable of growing into comrade ???
    Apparently, this is the case when just "in the army on the announcement got".

    I agree. The task of the military is to kill those who encroached on their homeland. How our grandfathers acted in the Great Patriotic War The more you killed the enemy, the more honor and respect you receive. And to hell with detailed political correctness!

    I think that this phrase of some may lead to reflection on what profession they choose. If we find ourselves in a state of war, such a person who has a job should not doubt the demand that we make - and that they must defeat the enemy they are facing. In war, we are not playing football, badminton or chess is going to play with the enemy ... Even when we go to the shooting range, we shoot at targets that mimic human figures. And in the war, in any case, we will have to use weapons.


    He correctly wrote everything in the announcement and explained. In vain then they apologized and copied. The person who will have to kill other people must be aware of this before taking office.

    On the morning of April 9, Reich forces invaded Denmark and occupied the kingdom for six hours. Already at 10 o’clock, the Danish government appealed to the people to remain calm and not resist the occupation

    Therefore, our military are the defenders of the Motherland, and they have killers capable of killing stealthily, and only 6 hours to defend the Motherland!

    Do not defeat the enemy, but kill when they give the license to kill. It’s also interesting to see what they have inside?

    Here it is modern Europe ...
    The fact that LGBT people march through the streets demonstrating their sexual perversions does not bother them (Europeans). And the fact that the integral part of the military profession is the destruction (killing) of enemies, it confused them. fool
