Mothers of servicemen organise to oppose the war.
The wives and mothers of serving British soldiers have formed a new pressure group to demand that Britain end her involvement in the war against Iraq.

The national campaign will be launched later this week, but in a statement issued to the Independent on Sunday, the group claim that the war was "based on lies," and demand withdrawal "as a matter of urgency".

The British government will not listen, of course, but it is going to be difficult for them to smear this group as unpatriotic. As one grandmother said: "I was in the Army myself, as was my husband, in the 1950s. We were defending Britain and our territories. They should be defending places like the Falklands - that's a different matter."

You cannot get more patriotic than that.

I wouldn't stand in the way of these people doing this, as it actually aids in the anti-imperialist fightback -- but unlike those on the foolish Left, I certainly won't support them. Their attitude is actually "imperialism is fine with us -- as long as we're winning. And the government is putting my son's life at unnecessary risk by screwing the job up!"

Not too enlightened, wot. Sorry -- but I take a pass with this type, and encourage their sons to refuse to fight and take the brig instead -- or else just fucking prepare to die.
