British Coffins and Politics

The Wall Street Journal has an article worth reading.

The name of the article is "British Coffins Raise Ire over Afghan Push".

This is a good story about how people in the UK react to the deaths of their soldiers. The soldiers are moved from an airbase, through a town to a coroners office.

People line the streets to grieve the fallen.

This isn't a protest or a photo op for pro or anti war politicians.

It is just people honoring the fallen soldiers.

Don't I wish we could do that in the United States without some scumbag turning it into a political joke.
