i thought this was pretty funny, though i’m sure not meant to be by the british anti-war people. double decker buses full (actually, only about a dozen evidently) of protesters went over to iraq to act as human shields, but now they’re coming home. they’re worried for their safety because the iraqis wanted them at specific sites. huh? question: what’s the point of being so-called human shields if you’re going to ditch before the bombs start falling anyway?
