Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week July 10, 2016Posted by Garibaldy in Sunday Independent Stupid Statement of the Week.
Broadly speaking, a boring week with not much of any interest, stupid or not. However, in the week of the Chilcott report and the commemorations of the Somme, Eoghan Harris strikes gold.
Like the glib dismissal of Great War Irish soldiers as ‘cannon fodder’, this demeans their sacrifice.
Like the Irish soldiers in World War One, the American, British and Irish soldiers who died in Iraq fell in the cause of freedom.
Surely that should be their proud epitaph?
