Stop the War

This is a story I have been wanting to run for some time. Now I am no longer a Civil Servant, I can run it and say exactly how I feel about the War on Terror in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Stop the War. It was my baptism by fire into direct action and protest and campaigning. The War on Terror in Afghanistan and Iraq is illegal. The only time in my whole life when I have been ashamed to be British was when Britain joined the US in this War (the rest of Europe made the right decision and decided to give it a miss). This War on Terror is killing and maiming British and US troops, and innocent Arab civilians who are just trying to go about their daily lives in these countries. Blair is a liar and a war criminal. One day he will pay for his crimes and the blood on his hands and, in my book, that day cannot come soon enough.

Cut and pasted from Wikipedia:

The Stop the War Coalition (informally just Stop the War) is a United Kingdom group set up on 21 September 2001 that campaigns against what it believes are unjust wars.

The coalition has opposed the various wars that are claimed to be part of the ongoing "War on Terrorism". It has been the most prominent group in Britain campaigning against the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. The demonstration against the latter on 15 February 2003, which it organised in association with Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND) and the Muslim Association of Britain (MAB), is claimed to be the largest public demonstration in British history.
