Subject: RE: Anyone watching My Son Jack?
"Was it OK for German workers to slaughter British workers then?"
No, of course it wasn't, and to suggest that my arguments against war suggest that I take sides is ingenuous, to say the least.
Those who fight at the front in wars have no say in the matter and therefore, have no reason to be sent off to slaughter and be slaughtered; simple as that.
McGrath: re your comments on The Labour Party, the TUC, The Social Democrats (and you can add the Provisional Government in Russia (Mensheviks) to that list); yes, they all swallowed the jingoism being spouted by the Kiplings of the world and betrayed their principles; they were well rewarded for doing so by becoming part of the establishment.
The same can be said for present day New Labour who threw their support behind the US in the war for oil that is at present being waged.
Sod them all, I say!
