Britain commemorates events marking the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War with a ball for LGBT soldiers

28

Although exactly 70 years have passed since the beginning of the Korean War, it is still not actually completed. In honor of this event, which took place on June 25, commemorative events were held in a number of countries that took part in hostilities, including in the UK.


British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace last night, along with South Korean Ambassador to London Enna Pak, laid wreaths at the monument. The ceremony participants commemorated those who died in the Korean War and expressed gratitude to all its participants.

A message about this appeared on the official Facebook page of the UK Department of Defense.

Ben Wallace, arguing about those events, said:

Losses were high, the Republic of Korea made a great sacrifice, but now the nation is thriving as free.

The Minister mentioned that in the Korean War, 80 British soldiers and officers fought in the UN peacekeeping contingent on the side of South Korea. Of these, over a thousand years of war more than a thousand people died.

On the same day, the British military held another solemn event. Sergeant Alastair Smith-Weston has his own unique perspective on honoring veterans. He organized a ball for military personnel (including former) who are members of the LGBT community. The event was also reported on the UK Department of Defense Facebook page. The fact is that the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of war in Korea coincided with the 20th anniversary of Britain’s refusal to dismiss non-traditional military personnel.

This event added new colors to the discreet palette of a memorable date.

Sergeant Alastair Smith-Weston has his own unique way of honoring veterans of the UK Armed Forces. He is the organiser of the LGBTQ + Veterans Ball. 20 years since the ban on serving LGB personnel was lifted, the Ball has been a source of community for many veterans who were excluded when they served. #ArmedForcesWeek

True, not entirely appropriate, but you can’t do anything for the sake of tolerance.

          In a children's song of that time, it was implied that the firm train "Quiet Don" in which the cars were blue or blue. "Baikal" is really blue, well, and others ..., yes, it is quite possible that brown-iridescent trains traveled on a common basis in such trains, but again this is more in error in relation to the total passenger traffic. The song also sings about a wizard in a blue helicopter - you know at the time of the creation of the cartoon and the writing of the song .. there was a large number of Mi-4 helicopters in Aeroflot, which carried a red-blue (blue) color
          and who were really magicians — for example, when in the spring autumn there was a sludge, or ice turned on the Ob, then these helicopters were the only wizards who brought us mail, food and other ... Yes, and when we remember the past we sing ... BLUE POOR, BLUE CHEVRONS- we got to serve in the Air Force ... Somehow no one has any bad thoughts comparing us with rainbow-brown hi laughing

            - In fact, until 1917
            The cars in the then "Russian Railways" were divided into CLASSES.
            And the most "simple" / worker-peasant (3rd grade) - painted in GREEN.
            And the cars of the upper classes (1st and 2nd) - painted in YELLOW and BLUE.
            As Nekrasov wrote
            "The yellow and blue were silent,
            in green - wept and sang ... "
            Well, after 1917 - "yellow and blue", of course - "abolished".
            Although later, ess-quietly and quietly, there appeared compartments and SV ...

        There is no need to guess, the blue flag and the US state flag hang together. It is not for nothing that African-Americans put them on "fertoing" and on their knees.

          - and here for some reason they "filter" the word "pin-do-sia"
          And they are proud of this word!

      We have a word that goes beyond its definition - we emphasize with it the negative human characteristics of a person, even if he is of a normal orientation! In this case, my stupid "friends" Anglo-Saxons themselves emphasize that they are .... The American Embassy has hung a rainbow flag under its national flag - as a sacred sign that all Americans are ....! The British are doing it! That is, what I knew all my life and told everyone about it - they themselves confirm! laughing And if you dig further my arguments that the Anglo-Saxons are a race from the devil, then please - Sodom and Gomorrah (England and the USA) continue to go against the Creator! And I just can’t understand our Israeli comrades here on the site, who convince me that I’m wrong, but the rainbow flag themselves at their embassies drape with a rag on the sly ... Jews, such Jews! laughing

    And what about the principle of subordination? It is in the civilian world everyone can. And here is only a superior in rank of a subordinate? That is, the sergeant general can, but rather already a violation? Then where is the tolerance? On the other hand, in peacetime, the sergeant general is playing. Everything is fine. What if the war? Or what check, but the sergeant did? To give a sergeant to punish privates? Everything is somehow confusing. We need a special regulatory document.

      The sergeant general cannot; he has enough colonels.

    During the Korean War, Kinsey published a book, “Sexual Behavior of a Human Female,” which nearly led to riot by US soldiers.

      Curious. Thanks for the tip.
      For completeness, I note that this is a dilogy, and the first, so to speak, part is called "Sexual Behavior of a Human Male".

    What an abomination!
    The embassy hangs a homosexual flag next to the state!
    West turns into a real "Garden and Gamora"
    Lord, where are your arrows of fire? Why didn't you burn this satanic event?
