GUEST,josepp BS: 'Heroes' or Mercenaries? (193* d) RE: BS: 'Heroes' or Mercenaries? 30 Apr 12

////So it is not quite as clear cut as if you voted for Blair you are responsible.////

Well, you can rationalize any way you like if it makes you feel better but the truth is that if you voted for him you helped put your troops in that country. And it doesn't matter what you believed about Saddam--BLAIR KNEW the case against him was bullshit--he HAD to know. He chose to go along with it.

My point is, it is pointless to try and rationalize with a "how could I know what he was going to do?" while criticizing the military for being there. Were they supposed to be psychic? They had the same info you did and didn't have an option to refuse to go unlike the civilians who were ultimately responsible for sending them there. There's a lot of self-righteous hypocrisy going on on this thread and it's all far left liberal rubbish.
