The Morning Star has the following from a few of those who marched into Downing Street Tuesday;
Dan Lenham, who was in the RAF from 2002 until 2014, said they were returning awards for “participating in previous attacks on the Middle East. “These invasions, occupations and attacks have caused great devastation, killed hundreds of thousands of people and have led to the destruction of societies,” he said.“Bombing is never a solution, it is time to stop.”
The protesting men and women deserve respect whether you agree with them or not. They have earned their medals, and some, and casting them aside as worthless pieces of metal in disgust at further conflict makes a good point.
But so does Ben Griffin;
Ben Griffin, a former soldier from VFP, said, "I think it is ridiculous that they voted for [air strikes in Syria]. We fought in Afghanistan, we fought in Iraq and in Libya, and it didn't solve a thing, it made things worse. It is highly disappointing, having gone through these wars, to see MPs voting for more war. War is not the solution to this problem. More bombs in Syria isn't going to solve this. We are completely disgusted by those MPs."
