Look, I didn't support the Iraq war, and still don't believe that someone as rich as George Bush would invade Iraq for the right reasons. But I have no axe to grind.

I saw how much effort peace campaigners put in to stopping the war first hand in Parliament square London as the bombs were dropping.

Yesterday I heard Jeremy Corbyn and Robin Cook saying how proud they were of the biggest protest march in history. Why? These people went home. They didn't try and stop a war, or sit down next to the children who did.

A couple of weeks later, I was happy to see Saddam's statue fall. As I say, I have no axe to grind. In the following months I spent much more time online talking to people I disagreed with that those I agreed with. How the fuck else can any progress be made?

This is why we at socialistwanker link to people like conservative punk. I fucking hate Bush, but thanks to "my political enemies" I read this and challenge my own perspective.
