tired of the BS re: the war on terrorism
I was/am shocked and horrified by 9/11, the London train attacks etc. BUT I am sick and tired of the BS spouted by Bush, Blair etc. Tell us that you are shocked and horrified, send your condolences to the victims' families, pray. But please do not insult the rest of the world by telling us nonsense like "we in Britain/the US/the West/the free world do not support using violence to achieve one's aims or change another nation." Exactly what were the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan if not that? Don't you think that an Iraqi being bombed feels the same as a Londoner or New Yorker being bombed? If you truly do not support using violence to solve problems, then disband your military.
