    Congrats on being the highest paid Bond, Mr. Craig! You deserve it! Not only did Daniel make Bond cool again, but he has helped bring in talent for the new generation. He was directly involved in bringing Sam Mendes, Ralph Fiennes and Javier Bardem to the table. He also help with the stories and gave Bond a new raw edge never seen before!

    According to BBC, Daniel inspected demonstration of the techniques used to search for bombs and he used the detectors himself to search for buried training devices, also he fired some of the machine guns used by UK forces. He acted honorably to raise the morale of the troops!

    he’s cool and all but it’s easy to hop a plane and shake hands for a day.
    it’s the TROOPS you should take your hats off to.
    they’re the ones that work the hard job for 1% of what craig makes.

    @ben: No, it isn’t easy. Because Camp Baston is the front line of a battle. Daniel went to show soldiers Skyfall, it was a pleasant show, but it is not without danger. Of course, each and every soldier is a real hero.
    The fact is, when a force of Taliban gunmen managed to move up to and breach the Bastion’s security at around 10.15pm (local time), supposedly without being seen or heard, have sent a shock wave through Nato’s high command.
    Initial reports state that the Taliban had been monitoring the eastern side of Camp Bastion for at least two weeks and had been posing as farmers working in a nearby maize plantation.
    A five-foot-high hole has reportedly been found in the outer fence which sits adjacent to the main runway. It is believed to have been caused by a suicide bomber detonating an explosive vest. One the fence had been breached, around 19 insurgents, many also wearing suicide vests, streamed forward firing rocket propelled grenades and mortars. Two US Marines were killed in the ensuing battle and five aircraft, including US Marine Corps Harrier jump jets and helicopters, were destroyed. A fuel storage tank and a helicopter maintenance tent were also hit and caught fire.
    The attack only ever had one aim. It was a suicide mission designed to demonstrate that the Taliban can attack any Nato installation, no matter how secure.

    @Mike. Well, but I was favorably impressed by an other part. Daniel visited Bastion Role 3 Hospital which specialises in treating trauma patients.
    “Pte Scott Craggs, 23, from Newcastle, a combat medical technician said: “It was really good morale for everyone – it’s a decent thing for him to take time to come out and visit everyone here.”"

    So I adore he always pays great attention to others and having good social manners. He isn’t a nationalist, but he is a patriotic man, he loves his country in his own way.

    What did you expect of him? Each plays their respective role!!!!! Daniel was showing support/respect to troops who fight for their own country. I respect each service!

    @Jess: Now I remember! Camp Bastion is the base where Prince Harry is serving as a member of a British helicopter unit. Taliban targeted Camp Bastion to attack Harry. How awful.
    @Elle: Exactly!

    I suspect you’re not very intellectually oriented. LOL. As for this subject, your dumbest comments are irrelevant and out of place to examine here. If you have brains in your head, try to learn a more varied vocabulary on the latest happenings in the world.

    @Kelly Says:

    is “grandpop” a real word? well “grand” means great and “pop” is a german word for F*U*C*K and if that is what you mean you are certainly right: he’s so sexy and I bet he’s a great f*U*C*K, surely greater, more sexy than every guy who wants to bed a joyless, fustrated B*I*T***CH like you.
