Brown condemns no-uniform advice

Brown condemns no-uniform advice (BBC News, Friday, 7 March 2008)
He said armed forces members should be "encouraged to wear their uniform in public and have the respect and gratitude of the British people".

That's right. The Iraq war is not the fault of the armed forces, who were betrayed just like everyone else. If Gordon Brown means to say that people opposed to UK involvement in Iraq should direct their verbal abuse instead at those who are ultimately responsible for that war, and at him in particular, then for once I agree with him. But probably I misunderstood.
