This is nothing new with the Brits. They did this stuff in Kenya, Aden, Palestine (and so on) and particularly Ireland.
British soldiers were well known for their torture in Ireland, not forgetting internment without trial, 'Diplock trials' where trials had just three judges and no jury.
Remember those who died on Bloody Sunday, 14 peaceful civil rights marchers shot dead by British troops.
Blair and Bush are war criminals and should be next to Saddam in the dock.
Don't let these tyrants get away with murder.
Get out on the streets and say, troops out NOW.
Join the demonstration on March 19 here in Portland.
Be part of the solution and help build a mass anti war movement
