They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Ukraine: Guardian Chickenhawk ready for war

Might Peter Hitchens be including former BBC correspondent and apparent chickenhawk Angus Roxburgh in this?  The strongman who recently stated, in The Guardian "It needs to made absolutely clear to Putin – even as the time for manoeuvre slips tragically away – that further military intervention (or disguised invasion) will be met not with more warnings, jeering and pointless sanctions, but with resolute western military support for Ukraine."

Why wait for future historians to tell you that you were rushed into a stupid, ruinous war by crude, one-sided propaganda?
Tell these people now that you want no such thing. Link
