Blair Defeats Brit Army (2)

Blair is intent on driving a stake through the Brit army. As well as prosecuting our soldiers fighting in Iraq – he’s now planning to prosecute veterans who fought in the 30-year conflict in Northern Ireland. While of course letting the terrorists go free.

The
story:

Hundreds of British soldiers face the prospect of criminal charges as part of a "historic review" of more than 2,000 "unresolved deaths" during the 30 years of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, the Sunday Telegraph can reveal.

A new Army unit, called 6 Royal Military Police Historic Investigation Team, has been created to work closely with the Police Service of Northern Ireland to trace soldiers who were involved in operations under review.

The unit will also warn those facing prosecution and will advise them on the "legal support" available.

More than 160 police officers will be involved in the inquiry, which could last up to 10 years and whose cost is expected to dwarf that of the £150 million six-year Bloody Sunday inquiry.

The disclosure comes days after ministers admitted that dozens of IRA and Loyalist terrorists who are "on the run" will in effect be pardoned for their crimes, which will also form part of the review. Many of them are multiple murderers.

This violates so many Brit values including honor, decency, rule of law, that I’m left speechless
.

I hope our old soldiers have kept their guns.
