Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong

So apparently lemon-sucking donkey-faced defence secretary Geoff Hoon has said that we have to send Our Boys into help in the north of Iraq because "We have a duty to the US".

Er, no, we don't.

Geoff, as a politician, you may feel you have, but we the public don't, and neither do the army.

We sent them in there, if you include all the possible excuses, to either keep Britain and their forces in Cyprus safe, or to create a new democratic Iraq, or to stop those international terrorists.

So the army have a duty to either the British people or to the Iraqi people. They certainly don't to the US government.

Please come back when you've thought it through properly.
