"To count the life of battle good"

posted by k

This is a hasty post. I simply want to draw attention to three stories in the Sunday papers.

From the Sunday Mirror: Brit troops go into Basra as Iraqi army collapses

From the Independent: Army faces new torture claims over arrest of Shia leader

From the Observer: Brown backs army cadet plan for schools

I don't want my children to be killed in a war, though I accept that everyone - even my children - will die. Even more than that, I do not want my children to become killers and torturers.
