Londoners demonstrate against Trump’s Iraq-Iran war

This 4 January video from the Evening Standard daily in England says about itself:

Hundreds protest against threat of war with Iran following death of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani

Labour shadow chancellor John McDonnell has criticised the [Conservative] Government’s response to the Iran crisis as he joined protesters at a Stop the War Coalition demonstration outside Downing Street.

Mr McDonnell and his colleague shadow justice secretary Richard Burgon are among demonstrators who are calling for the US to avoid any further conflict with Iran.

“We’ve been here before, we were here 17 years ago. And there’s one lesson that came from those events, is that violence begets violence”, Mr McDonnell said.

“And it was acts like this that led us to the catastrophic war in Iraq.”

THE assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani by the United States means 2020 begins with the risk of a devastating Middle Eastern war coming closer than ever. This targeted killing was not just a “provocative and disproportionate action,” as US House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi describes it — though the fact that even right-wing Democrats (from Joe Biden to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 running mate Tim Kaine) are voicing concern over “escalating aggression” and attacking President Donald Trump for having “tossed a stick of dynamite into a tinderbox” shows just how reckless it was: here.

Trump endorses tweet comparing top Senate Democrat to Iranians: here.

Pompeo: European response to Suleimani killing ‘not helpful enough’. US secretary of state unfavourably compares European reaction with [Saudi] ‘partners in the region’: here.
