Blair is "Bush's lapdog," say parents of dead soldier.
The parents of Sergeant John 'Jonah' Jones, the 98th British soldier to die in Tony Blair's desire to appease a foreign ruler, have spoken out against the war in general and Blair in particular: "Tony Blair should have his kids out there and then he would know how it feels. He is just Bush's lapdog. It was an unjust war to start with. It's going to be like America's Vietnam," said 62 year old Ray Jones, the dead man's father.
As the death toll in Blair's war creeps towards the first one hundred mark, the Stop The War Coalition are preparing to demonstrate in one hundred towns and cities in the UK on the day after this tragic, senseless milestone is reached. On the actual day itself, the Military Families Against The War will mount a protest in Parliament Square.
If you live in the UK your support is needed. The hand shandyists for war must learn that they only speak for a tiny handful of people. They are not the voice of the majority.
