    Yesterday will come to history as day, when Bluey was funny.
    Was there some kind of drug in his Pepsi?

    Absolute nonsense, democracy has never and should never be part of the British Military or any military for that matter. We have civil law, criminal law and military law as distinct and separate branches for good reason. You cannot have a situation where soldiers or officers are democratically voting on whether to accept decisions on orders, tactics or strategy, if you join the military you accept that you will follow the orders as directed from your immediate superior or you will face the consequences. I joined up in the 1990s, at that time I still could have legally been hanged or shot for certain breaches of military discipline, I accepted that the moment I swore my oath of allegiance (To be fair I understood and accepted that long before that point). The idea that Democracy could or should play any part in that is frankly laughable.

    I strongly suggest that you study the history of the British Military, we famously executed men for cowardice in the Great War for example who were clearly suffering from what we now recognise as PTSD, you don't have to look much further back (Or forward) into the days of the Empire to see other examples of less than humanitarian acts by the British Army or British mercenaries/paramilitaries like the East India Company.
