You obviously don't get it. Perhaps it's too subtle for you. Perhaps you're a 'I only understand a kick in the nuts and face' kind of guy from a 'I only understand a kick in the nuts and face' country.

If Brierly had have kicked Blair in the face, I doubt he'd not feel much better after his moment of glory - after all, his son is dead: a punch and a kick won't sate that feeling in his stomach - and that's all it would have been - a moment. Security forces would have had Brierly on the floor immediately afterwards and Brierly would have been branded a lunatic by much of the media, whether they were sympathetic to his son's death or not.

Consequently, he'd diminish much of his argument. Whereas what he did, or rather didn't do, very elegantly sent a message that's resounded throughout the media for days and has probably been more damaging than a kick in the nuts and face ever could have been.

There is nothing more insulting to our humanity than being sent away to die for NOTHING. The interests of the elite amount to just that: NOTHING. Blair, Bush and the rest of that gang, had they been real leaders, would have lead their troops into battle. Of course, that hasn't been done forever, and the cowardice of the royal trash that runs this planet has been accepted by the masses.

Be under no illusions those who say otherwise. Had the father assaulted Blair the power of conveying that father’s loss would have been swept away as swiftly as the father would have been swept away, the act of violence overshadowing the message the father wished to impart.


Very well put, sir -- you have captured my sentiment and the poignancy of the event exactly.

Fairplay to the Father there, i can definitly have sympathy with that course of action. Without doubt Blair has blood on his hands, but he is not the only one, it was actually Parliament who voted for the attack including the likes of Brown and the whole Conservative Party.

Only the Lib Dems headed by the great Charles Kennedy had the balls to vote against it, along with Robin Cook and Claire Short.

Let us not forget these facts, only Parliament in law in the UK can send us to war.
