Judge for Yourself

So the ‘Not In My Name’ slogan, adopted by those of who never wanted a War on Iraq in the belief that not all of the diplomatic avenues had been exhausted, has finally been given a Name:-

In an interview with the UK’s best ever Chat Show host, Michael Parkinson, Mr. Blair apparently divulges that
History and God will Judge him on his decision to go to war in Iraq. Well, I have news for you Tony; if you don’t bow out as leader of the Labour Party soon you will be judged by neither; it will be the electorate that will judge you and it will show in the next General Election.
Leave Iraq and leave the Labour party sooner rather than later before it is too late for either.

‘Gods name’ in the wrong hands is a very dangerous thing, especially in the hands of the Fanatic.

‘In the name of whom ever’ -
Stop the War

Time to reflect

I read an article the other day in a daily newspaper whereby a Father was mourning the loss of his soldier son in Iraq and asking the British government to ‘bring our boys’ back home.

I wager that the Father of the young soldier may have had misgivings about his son going to war but he probably would not have shown his dissent so fervently for fear of showing a lack of support for his Son and the Regiment.

In the UK we had enough people against the Invasion of Iraq to justify a little more serious thought being given to such a big decision. Instead we just blindly followed G.W.Bush and his Hawks headlong into a meaningless war. [meaningless if you take Oil out of the equation].

Unfortunately it is too late for both the Father and his Son in this instance; but I wonder how many more would now join a March in demonstration of our ongoing presence in Iraq; probably many.

My thoughts are with those that have lost someone in the war in Iraq and to those who may yet lose a loved one.

What sort of beast have we let out of the pen and is it too late to shut the door now that it has bolted?
