The attack on the soldier yesterday in Woolwich, London was unjust and totally wrong, but once again we question why attacks like this still happen. Unfortunately this country and its government reap what it sows; it still thinks this country is a global power, like it was in the old British Empire days. While its technology and financial might still hold stature, the military power and its right to wage war, is long gone. By going to a foreign land and killing its nationals, you’re bound to whip up support for some sort of reprisals, as happened today. I don’t support either as two wrongs will never make a right, but you can change things by dialogue and education. Of course he didn’t deserve to die, but neither did the innocent people the military kills in these foreign countries. Killing is wrong period and there is no grace in saying it is done legally. If the country says kill as a solider you kill whether it’s right or wrong, it’s your job and you obey orders. After the killing is done, the government of the day goes to work trying to convince the people that what has been done, is in their best interest and unfortunately all too many people agree with this. What freedom is having the right to choose, the countries that the soldiers go to, maybe don’t have freedom and democracy as we know it, but they have the right to choose for themselves. They have the right to self-rule and not to be forced into something that’s dictated to them, by some overseas power. By poking our noses in someone else’s business we run the risk of attacks large or small, on our own people innocent or not. Don’t think for one minute I support what’s happened, I just understand what effects the government’s foreign policy has. We live in 2013 not 1913 and we should realise that other countries should be talked to, in an educated way and not controlled by the barrel of a gun.
