Modified: 16 Mar 2003
In This Country It Seems that most People Are No Longer Brave Enough to Risk Jail For Civil Disobedience to Stop 'our' Government from Slaughtering Hundreds of Thousands of People. The British aren't afraid. They are setting the example for us.
This is the SECOND Article on the British United Kingdom site. The First Article gives INSTRUCTIONS on how to Slow Down the Countries WAR MACHINE with Civil Disobedience.


RAF Tornado Disabled, More Arrests at Fairford

Ploughshares activist Ulla Roder entered RAF Leuchars Air Base early Tuesday morning in north-east Fife and damaged a Tornado plane with a hammer, putting it out of action. The Tornado's at Leuchars are important in the UK's mobilisation for war against Iraq, and the base, whose motto is "Attack and Protect", is believed to have been involved in the bombing of Iraq since 1991. Also on Tuesday 11th, 9 'citizen weapons inspectors' cut through fences at RAF Lakenheath and cycled around the base, some locking on and obstructing the runway for 3 three hours.

Prior to Ulla's action, early on the morning of Monday 10th March, two other anti-war activists had breached security at RAF Leuchars in order to inspect the base ahead of its likely illegal use in an attack on Iraq. The action followed a demonstration at the weekend with around 200 people protesting at the base - Full report.

Also at the weekend another 20 people were arrested at USAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, after a group broke into the base (pics + report). A number of people made it onto the runway and delayed the take off of a transport plane (report 2) - landing lights were also disabled. Recently at USAF Fairford a new razor wire fence (pics) was erected by US soldiers right through the bomb spotting camp (pics), and in what is believed to be its first use, Section 44 of the Terrorism Act 2000 has been authorised at Fairford in an attempt to control legitimate peace protests.

Fighter wasn't going to be involved. (english)
16 Mar 2003
The Tornado F3 she damaged is a superiority fighter. It has NO BOMBING capabilities. This Tornado wasn't even going to be featured in this war...

The Tornado GR1 and GF4 are the only multi-role Tornados... They carry two of the meanest Air to Surface missiles! The Storm Shadow SOCM(Stand-Off Cruise Missile. AWESOME power and stealth) and the Brimstone anti-armor missile! The Brimstone is basically a US Hellfire that is elongated with a much longer range, Millimetric radar seeker, and double war heads (The first smaller warheads nullifies ERA[Explosive Reactive Armor], then the 2nd large penetrates the armor and defeats the crew and tank!)......

If she really wanted to cause problems to the US and UK, she should've gone to the Mideast and destroyed those jets... BTW, this Tornado will be back in service probably in 7 days. Tornados were meant to take damage, land, get new parts, and takeoff... All within 24 hours during war conditions...

The Military type commenting missed the point (english)

The military type or cia agent commenting on the Copy of the UK post - missed the point entirely (even though he published the same post Twice)of why the article is reposted here.

I'm sure as hell not going to tell him what the point was of putting the article I published here was. And I hope nobody else does.
