I found it, then I lost it. Then my friend Frederic found it again. It’s Robin Cook’s “stop the war, bring back the troops” editorial in the Mirror. Great stuff.
COOK: BRING OUR LADS HOME
Mar 30 2003
Let’s send Rumsfeld and his hawks to war instead
By Robin Cook
This was meant to be a quick, easy war. Shortly before I resigned a Cabinet colleague told me not to worry about the political fall-out.
The war would be finished long before polling day for the May local elections.
I just hope those who expected a quick victory are proved right. I have already had my fill of this bloody and unnecessary war. I want our troops home and I want them home before more of them are killed.
