In the last 20 years, since the end of the Cold War, Britain has gone to war, usually on the coat tails of the United States, seven times -- Iraq 199, Iraq 1998, Yugoslavia 1999, Sierra Leone 2000, Afghanistan 2001, Iraq 2003-2008, 2011 Libya. This 32 page pamphlet examines the background to the war policies of Labour governments under Tony Blair, now being continued by David Cameron's Conservative government. It concludes by looking at how the anti-war movement has responded to those policies, and how it needs to develop in the future, given the continuing commitment of the western powers to military intervention in other peoples' countries.
