23:13 by Editor · 0 Post a comment on AAWR

A serving soldier from York has appeared before a court martial after refusing to return to Afghanistan.

L/Cpl Joe Glenton, 27, of the Royal Logistic Corps, faced the preliminary hearing at a martial court in Wiltshire accused of desertion.

The soldier did not enter a formal plea but his defence counsel Hugh O'Donoghue indicated he would deny the charge.

On Thursday L/Cpl Glenton gave a letter to the prime minister calling for troops in Afghanistan to be withdrawn.

In his letter he claimed the war in Afghanistan is being fought in the interests of US foreign policy.

Expert witnesses

Having joined the Army in 2004, he went Awol in 2007 before handing himself in after two years and six days.

He has been on leave until today when he returned to his regiment.

Mr O'Donoghue told the court that he may call an expert witness to give evidence on the lawfulness of war in Afghanistan.

Military prosecutor Captain Gemma Sayer said she would also be calling witnesses, mostly sergeants, who are currently serving in Afghanistan and Kuwait.

The prosecutor said they were also considering an additional charge connected to the alleged desertion and that L/Cpl Glenton would be interviewed by military police. continues here

Ah but Mr Glenton if only it were so simple as fighting for the interests of US foreign policy, yet beloved sons from across the pond, die to in a war not of their nations interest, you see the war is to break resistance, to govern the very world and none must stand nor block the way. Islam in the east and we few in the west, yet we are losing and the tentacles close their grip upon the world, this time there will be no freedom, no chance, because all countries and all peoples will have succumb ,freedom but a memory and all a mono-mass.
