Wounded Iraq vets heckled and jeered!

London - Soldiers who suffered appalling injuries, in Iraq and Afghanistan were verbally abused as they swam in a public swimming pool. During a weekly rehabilitation class at a council leisure centre, 15 servicemen – including several who have lost limbs or suffered severe burns – were heckled and jeered by members of the public. One woman was so incensed that the troops were using the pool at Leatherhead Leisure Centre in Surrey that she told them they did not deserve to be there.

Thank you, John Howard!

Blackfive - A friend when we needed one, John Howard, loses the election in Australia. Jules Crittenden gets the nod here:

...My take on what it all means? Nothing good. Howard’s decision to stand with his nation’s allies against undeniable evil ultimately cost him, as Blair’s similar decision cost him. Howard apparently was further hurt by his refusal to set his nation’s interest aside in furtherance of half-baked scientific speculation and worse politics. Then, there was a credit crunch, and the simple fact of being around for 11 years.

All three men, Howard, Blair and Bush, made me proud of my American, Australian and British heritage and relieved that in time of war, we can still produce unselfish, clear-minded leaders of this caliber...
