Woolwich Beheading Blowback from UK's Neo-Colonial Crimes?
UK's Colonial Past a Possible Factor in Brutal Woolwich Killing
"...Brian Becker from anti-war coalition ANSWER told RT that the UK's neo-colonial approach to the Middle East, along with its NATO and US alliance, was leading to an 'escalating cycle of violence.'
'The British colonial past and its current legacy of intervention and war is undoubtedly a factor,' Becker said. 'The British government joined George W Bush in the invasion of Iraq and supported the war in Afghanistan.'
UK politician George Galloway also intimated that the attack could have been a consequence of British actions abroad, drawing a parallel with Syria: 'This sickening atrocity in London is exactly what we are paying the same kind of people to do in Syria."
