its true what he says, not really anything new. but they are nonetheless still valid points that he makes.
there is always a balance to be struck between training safety and having sufficiently realistic training. personally i feel the balance has now tipped too much in the former's favour.
unfortunately, given its unlikely we will be involved in any large scale operations and our peacekeeping operations tend to be of the "safer" variety, its hard to see what detrimental effect this actually has because there is no objective yardstick of measurement.
