Iraqi collaborators: keep 'em out of Britain!
As reported last month, there is a blog based campaign to admit those Iraqis who collaborated with the British occupation forces.
The whine now is that they are being "murdered" right at this moment. Actually, they aren't. What is happening is that they are being killed for the crime of collaboration. In the chaos that is Iraq today, and with a country that is not yet liberated, it would be foolish to expect trials and sentences. Iraq today is like France was in late 1944 - collaborators are simply shot out of hand.
The second whine is that they served the British and the British owe them something. Well, they served British imperialism, so perhaps British imperialism owes them something, but why should we, the British working class, be made to pay in any shape or form?
Sorry, lads, this is your war, your disaster and they are your harkis. You sort it out.
