It should be important that young working class British boys know why they are dying in future and, while it might be a bit too late for some of them with regards to past and, possibly, ongoing wars, they might at least give a thought to those conflicts that are looming on the horizon.
Among others, Al Arabiya and the ‘Guardian’s’ have reported not only that Britain and Bahrain have signed a Defence Cooperation Agreement, but also stated that “Britain has promised Bahrain to stave off any external aggression that threatens the Gulf country’s sovereignty”. Therefore, the young patriots back in ‘Blighty’, who are now unemployed after the crudest of half educations, might at least want to think what they might be fighting for.
Now, if getting yourself killed for a bunch of kleptomaniac crooks appears to be a worthwhile alternative to the dole, then they really have done a good job on your half education. However, if there is a little bit of a brain in there, or indeed a whole brain that has been neglected, then put on your thinking cap and remember our Manama mafia is shafting the Bahraini people at least as badly as the home-grown mob.
