"An RAF doctor was jailed for eight months today after being found guilty by a court martial today of failing to comply with lawful orders to serve in Iraq.

Flight Lieutenant Malcolm Kendall-Smith, 37, who likened the invasion of Iraq to a Nazi war crime, was convicted by a panel of five RAF officers on five charges including refusing to serve in Basra. He will also be dismissed from the service."

RAF means he's already in the service, and therefore is disobeying orders.

"A British soldier on trial for the killing a 15-year-old Iraqi who drowned after allegedly being forced in a canal was found not guilty of manslaughter by a military judge on Thursday.

Vice Judge Advocate General Michael Hunter did not give a reason"

I thought the guy was guilty on this one.
Different justice if one is pro-war?

They need all the help they can get. Let's face it, public opinion isn't exactly gleaming.

We've had fighters screaming out over our house all day today, so I guess they just deployed another couple of flights.

> amis and island apes

Ok, now you've got me interested. Just where do these wonderful slurs come from? And who exactly do they refer to? I can guess, I suppose, but please spell it out for me.

I think ami comes from German. Island apes, well. I have to think he came up with them on the spot; island ape could mean just about anything from like Japan to Australia to Kiwi-land to Madagascar.

Still, I have absolutely no idea what the opposition slur was for the British during WW2. Krauts and jerries, sure, but what did the Germans call the brits?
