"There’s no moral difference between a stealth bomber & a suicide bomber. Both kill innocent people"



Here is Benn destroying John Bolton during the Iraq war.



At 4:00, he takes Bolton apart by describing his own service in World War II and then noting that Bolton refused to serve in Vietnam. The RAF veteran notes that the London blitz killed his brother, and that as he was flying home from the war, he heard the United Nations charter read.

“That was the pledge my generation gave to the younger generation, and tore it up. And it’s a war crime that’s been committed in Iraq. Because there’s no moral difference between a stealth bomber and a suicide bomber. Both kill innocent people for political reasons…. You’re a declining empire, as we were, and you’ll learn the truth…. You were beaten in Vietnam… That’s why you didn’t want to serve there. And you’ll be beaten in Iraq.’”

2. "If we can find the money to kill people, we can find the money to help people."

RIP Tony Benn.
