Bring British Troops Home by Christmas, courtesy Stop the War


Stop the War have launched a petition to bring the British troops home by Christmas. I fully support and endorse this. I have signed the petition and I would encourage everyone to think about doing the same.

Cut and pasted from the Stop the War Website:

Afghanistan: Sign letter from military families to prime minister David Cameron now .

Petition to Prime Minister David Cameron

From members of Military Families Against the War supported by MPs, journalists, writers, artists, musicians and actors.

Dear Prime Minister,

Recent attacks on NATO troops have destroyed what passed for a strategy in Afghanistan. It is clear there is no prospect of an 'orderly handover'. All indications are the vast majority of Afghans want NATO troops to leave and leave soon. The occupation is the main cause of violence in the country.

It is unforgiveable to keep or send troops to Afghanistan for another two years in this pointless war. On current figures it would lead to the death of over one hundred more British soldiers, the wounding of hundreds more and the death of uncounted Afghan civilians. You must recognize that every single casualty is a real human tragedy for which those controlling the war are responsible.

We urge you to listen to the voice of the people and end the futile killing by bringing all the troops home by Christmas.
