Just in case you don’t know, Stop the War coalition is organising an anti-war march tomorrow, Saturday, 24th Sept, in Hyde Park. Speakers will include Tony Benn (yay!), John Pilger (hmmm…), MCB and MAB speakers (damn!), one Palestinian (wtf!), Gate Gourmet works (eh??) and Bianca Jagger (ok that’s taking the piss). No George Galloway thankfully. Have had too much of him already.
The bigger question is – is there a point? Is the withdrawal of troops a good idea? Yes, the the war was the stupidest decision ever made by Blair, but do we really want people like Al-Zaraqawi taking over or at least trying to? I don’t doubt for a second that the Al-Qaeda honchos there are creating mischief and killing innocent Iraqis to cause chaos and grab some power. I can’t see a better solution than training and aiming the Iraqi police force, and then leaving them.
