British Soldiers Back From Iraq Tell Their Own True Tales To Stuart Griffiths ...

*
Remember?



Remember?



Remember seeing these shocking action shots showing a young British 'squaddie' burning alive in Basra?

Ever given that soldier a second thought since?

Any idea what he went through?

Ever thought about the lad's loved ones?

Even have a clue how he eventually ended up?

Know the lad's name? Either his first name, last name or nickname? Did you ever? Do you yet? Could you care less?

Relax. No sweat. Don't knock yourself out. Since they're all, only rhetorical questions anyway.

Well, whatever. Whether you're all for war or totally anti-war ... whether you call yourself a Christian, a Muslim, a Jew, an atheist, an agnostic or anything else... whether you lean to the left, lean to the right, still sit on 'safe' fence somewhere in the centre... and... even if you're only half the human you imagine you are... you must see the stories that lay below.

We repeat... you
must.

Because, and make no mistake about it, if you don't/won't/whatever... you're a completely conscienceless, cretinous coward. Whoever, whatever and wherever you are... no matter what lame excuses and/or load of lies you can come up with.
Okay? Clear? Comprendo?



The soldier's tale: Return from Iraq

It's now five years since the Iraq war began. And ever since the first casualties started to arrive back in Britain, former paratrooper Stuart Griffiths has been documenting their struggles. Here he presents his moving portfolio.
Read the rest right here; right now.

Otherwise, simply STFU -- for ever.

As it was in the beginning
As it is now
As it will be if we don't scream loud enough for peace in our time.

These young men and women are merely cannon fodder and they are treated as expensive inconveniences when they do not die in the battlefield like they should.

Nothing expresses the hypocrisy of politicians better than when they stand in front of a camera and talk of 'our brave troops fighting in such and such....' The truth is they don't give a damn, just so long as they win their dirty little war. After that, their 'brave troops' can go rot.

It's time we all told them straight, "We ain't gonna fight for you no more."
