As opposed to when we were firing cruise missiles at them weeks ago - what was that then, half war?
Under international law, what you're allowed to legally do if you have officially declared war is much more extensive than if you havent. Although apparently its still legal to lob cruise missiles at someone if you're not technically 'at war' - which does seem a bit mental.
Basically declaring war is a preliminary step to getting much more involved without risking being so easily accused of breaking international law. Interestingl;y the UK government have guaranteed and promised all along that we werent going to get more involved. So looks like thats going the same way that politicians promises usually do then.
I, for one, am sick and tired of being ruled by governments that seem completely willing to lie to and mislead the people that they are supposed
to be answerable to (us, the electorate), and seem hell bent on pursuing the interests of big business the banks (or in this case the oil companies) even when this clealry isnt in the interests of the British public, nor is supported by us.
And Im sick and tired of watching coffins of British servicemen and women on the news so some smarmy ex-public schoolboy in the governement can continue to cosy up to the oil business.
We need a bloody revolution in this country, or at the very least a complete change in the voting system such that politicians are obliged to act in the interests of the public and of the country, rather than in the interests of the businesses that sponsor them and will employ them when they retire from politics.
