    Err no the UK does not need a war leader, what we need is a person untainted by the filth of corruption and greed who can see right from wrong. A person that has the backbone to recognise illegal wars and bogus wars on terror thats what this nation and others need. A person with the will to resist the bribes and threats coersion of others whom continually break the law for power and greed.

    No one needs to be dying in Afghanistan, Iraq or anywhere else, most wars and conflict can be avoided but not when power and profit mad devils are in charge.

    The UK doesn't need a war leader, they need a Statesman. They need someone who can help improve their economy, intelligently help place troops where they need to be while making sure they have the necessary equipment, and put a halt to the "Big Brother" policies that are putting it's hold on the UK.

    That wasn't the point. If British servicemen and women are in harm's way they should be as well trained, well equipped and well supported as they possibly can be. A "war leader" is someone who is prepared to make potentially unpopular decisions in order to prioritize the safety (clearly a relative term) of those who are sent into war zones.

    Whether or not you agree with the political decision that sent them there in the first place is an entirely different matter.
