So I’m not OLD old but I do want to point out that Bush was polling real fucking low before we all went to war in Iraq and that Thatcher was on the brink of irrelevance before the Falklands.
The fact that May’s cabinet* is being militaristic and belligerent toward Spain and that POTUS 45 has launched 50 warheads into Syria is a political act to solidify authority.
In the coming months the UK and USA are going to have patriotism and glory-baiting shoved down our throats.
So remember these things:
1) War is hell, don’t let your representatives condone it.
2) You can support the men and women in the armed forces as individuals without supporting the military-imperial business model.
3) Times of war are when leaders must be held the most accountable for their actions, not rallied behind for the greater good.
The UK Government has yet to issue any new statement regarding military action in Syria. This is not a good time to live in.
Peace is an open hand, not a Tomahawk warhead.
*EDIT: William Hague is a Tory Life Peer, former party leader, former First Secretary of State, and Former Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, among other titles. While not part of the Cabinet as claimed, he is still politically relevant.
please, i keep thinking about you, i just need five minutes where we both pretend we’re okay, where i have you, where we melt into the other person’s skin. afterwards it can go back to complicated again. but please. just this once. let’s both give in.
