B.J.



Yes Big John, it is time to cut and run in Iraq. Bush/Blair and Howard went into Iraq for one reason only the oil. With the worlds diminishing oil supplies they thought it wuld be easy as the first time in Kuwait/Iraq. They attacked Iraq against the wishes of the United Nations and the WMD inspectors, on false intelligence manufactured for their own means. The deaths of all those civillians, and our lads will weigh heavily on their consciences I think. History will judge them, and I hope they can sleep at night. As they say war is decreed by one generation, and fought with the blood of another. I am not a pacifist, if Britain or the Commonwealth were attacked, I would do my bit. (Probably the Home Guard now)

Of corse they do! not very brite ones but us gets by - sort of! It's full of strange things called baby sailors, trouble is these days they have to supply their own ships and it takes abit of time to teach 'em wot these things are! Once when we had some we'd say "look across at the dockyard those grey things is war canoes" - now we say "look at the dockyard those spaces is where we'll put the war canoes when we get some" Still they'll be closing the yard soon and that will solve the problem! It will also mean that the locals can officially do nothing - won't that be nice! 8)

You still after yer awld job then Mick? Not that they know what a reserve ship is down that way these days I hear tell! But plenty of time quayside if they actually do find a ship to put in reserve, I'm sure they will, eventually! Primarilly because they won't have any sailors to man (?) 'em :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :roll:
