On the news

A teacher said only when recruiting materials gave a true picture of war would he welcome them into his school. These would have to say:

"Join the Army and we will send you to carry out the imperialist occupation of other people's countries. Join the Army and we will send you to bomb, shoot and possibly torture fellow human beings in other countries. Join the Army and we will send you probably poorly equipped into situations where people will try to shoot or kill you because you are occupying other people's countries. Join the Army, and if you survive and come home, possibly injured or mentally damaged, you and your family will be shabbily treated."

Teachers reject 'Army propaganda'
Pupils 'given biased Iraq view'
Iraq: teachers told to rewrite history
