My Son Was Killed
From Our E-mail In-Box:
My 19 year old son, Gordon Gentle, joined the army in November, 2003. He finished his six months training in April, 04. He was sent to Iraq, and was killed by a roadside bomb on the 28th of June, 2004.
They were sent to Iraq on a pack of lies. Blair has a lot to answer for. This war is wrong. It is an illegal war, and no one should be forced to to go and fight it. Mr. Blair and Mr. Bush lied to us all, and now MFSO [Military Families Speak Out] are not going to stop. We now have it in the hands of solicitors. I'll not give up on this. What was Iraq's crime to warrant such an illegal invasion? Was it that Iraq contains the second largest oil reserves in the world and was viewed as an easy target for western interest to plunder? No more lies. We have to get Blair and Bush in court.
scotland, bring the troops home
To: Prime Minister Tony Blair
We believe there is grave doubt about the legality of the war in Iraq. New evidence, including the Attorney General's original legal advice, indicates that Parliament was asked to support the war on a false basis.
The Prime Minister cannot "move on from the war" while there remain serious questions over the political, legal and intelligence basis of such a grave decision.
We therefore support the campaign led by Military Families Against the War for a public enquiry.
