I think it can only be a good thing. I certainly don't agree with most of what the politicians in recent years have had our armed forced do, but as Rudyard Kipling wrote:
For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Chuck 'im out, the brute!"
But it's "Saviour of 'is country" when the guns begin to shoot;
An' it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' anything you please;
An' Tommy ain't a bloomin' fool - you bet that Tommy sees!
