I was in Aruba in 1990 when Royal Navy came ashore and their officers allow them to act like the hooligans they are....yobs....whatever

I was with a very beautiful girl I knew from Maracaibo whose husband had been murdered recently and had flown over....they were incredibly coarse and crude to her and threatened me of course in strength of numbers

I literally had to get her out of there ...a music venue...thru a gauntlet worthy of Tahrir square

And eventually they rioted at Carlos and Charlie’s in Orangestaad and the local constabulary grossly outmatched had to activate a battalion of Dutch special forces from their training camp on island

Don’t laugh....long haired or whatever

They were indeed effective
I like to assure myself our officers would never low enlisted men to run wild like that

Am I wrong?

I think technically that Dutch battalion are Korps Marines but their scope of duty is more spec ops than infantry

Trying to be accurate

Anyhow.... they brought a few hundred NormanoSaxon wildings to heel
