UK warmongerers must be resisted

As Japan reflects upon the deaths of more than 140,000 of its citizens from the two atomic bombs, there is consolation in the knowledge that in the subsequent 70 years, not a single Japanese soldier has died in conflict (Saturday Review, August 8). In contrast, more than 4,500 British service personnel have since perished.

Britain is the only European nation to undertake the role of confronting Isis and the only Nato member, apart from America, that considers the necessity of maintaining a Trident deterrent.

With cutbacks to our social services and growing poverty, it is surely time for our politicians to resist our warmongering elite.
