That the British army authorized the killing of unarmed civilians in Iraq comes as no surprise. That’s the very nature of war. What is unspeakable is that so many today who call themselves progressive & antiwar justify & support US, European, Russian, Iranian, & other foreign intervention in Syria. The moment you support the bombing & killing of civilians & justify it by vilifying them as terrorists—or as some kind of humanitarian venture—you have crossed the line of human solidarity & joined the side of the oppressors. Take your place alongside the US, UK, Russian, Syrian, & Iranian special forces. And don’t forget to hang your head in shame.
