Save the harkis and leave the army to rot, say the warmongers.
It will be noted that four British soldiers have died this week. To what extent those deaths can be attributed to the demand to save the Iraqi collaborators is impossible to judge. One might speculate and say that it is possible that the Iraqis now know that the British are getting ready to leave, and that they will increase their attacks because everyone in Basra now wants to be on the winning team.
If that is the case then warmongery has yet more deaths at its door. Not a single 'monger has called for the Iraqi traitors to be pulled out with the British. That leaves a nasty taste in the mouth, because it looks to the jaundiced observer these that these 'mongers care more about the lives of 600 or so traitors than they do their own people.
