That anyone one of our soldiers should lose their
lives in this war is sad beyond words. But, I cannot help but feel anger
when I hear Tony Blair say that a full inquiry will take place to
determine how these friendly fire deaths occured.
If only he had been so quick off the mark
concerning foot and mouth. Sadly, no one was lisening, and no one was
bothered. No 'job' on the line scenerio!
How different the attitude when he is having to
justify why our young men are being killed out in Iraq. Yes, I imagine
we will have a 'full inquiry'. Why should we not? Let's blame the
weapons, the Iraqi's, the weather, the terible conditions when fighting a
war - let's blame anyone or anything, other then Prime Minister Blair. Will we
have a 'full inquiry' if it all goes terribly wrong? I doubt it very
I thought that inquiries were meant to establish
the TRUTH. Not to be used if and when the needs arises to gain
support - from a Counry that thinks this war is wrong.
Nineteen was the age of one young soldier that was
killed. Brave far beyond his years - but I wonder if he really understood
what this war is all about? Come to that, do any of us?
