    What sends shivers down me is that we aren't even at war, yet we're losing forces every now and then. Some during 2.4km training runs, some after a training hike, and some getting rolled over by a Land Rover.

    I mean no disrespect to the deceased, just concerned.

    well, accidents happen. just that now more attention is there.

    you don't need a war to die. i think every army has its own accidents as well, and that's the way it goes.

    I'm... not too sure about that. Any stats to back that up?

    ...how typical, you are expecting an accident free army in some magical place in the world? maybe utopia.

    if you want stats, i can dig, but i 'm not going to bother, based on past cs track record those stats will be ignored since most minds are closed.

    an army is not a construction site.

    of course, whether the intensity of training in comparison is equal, that's another matter altogether, but i would like to think that it is clear enough that army training and casualties, whether there is war or not, the latter is unavoidable in the long run.

    sometimes certain accidents are unpreventable no matter how much precaution been taken...

    No, not at all. I'm just surprised for a country of 4mil or so, we get SAF deaths one or two every few quarters. That's not too far off actually from a country like Israel, which coincidentally was a model which the SAF was originally based on. Just that Israel is constantly at war, we're not.

    But since the consensus seems that such "unfortunate events" are to be expected, oh well... live and let die I suppose (rock on Paul!).
