    Protests against the British Army in Luton.

    Whoever allowed it should be sacked. All protests against the war should be done by parliament and not aimed at the soldiers who are mealy following orders.

    I think the protests have succeeded in stirring up racial hatred, which perhaps was their aim.

    While I support peoples right to protest I strongly object to people who thrust their views onto the army, they are in theory a.poltical as they have to follow orders.

    You have to love the delicious irony that they hate this country and it's terrorist government so much but as soon as we try and deport them they're the first to cry about their human rights that they have over here and not in their own country...

    People should be allowed to protest where and when they want.

    As long as it isn't at someone's funeral or something I suppose.

    But a protest at this event is fine in my opinion, the other people there should have treated them with the contempt they deserved.

    Some of the crowd may of lost loved ones in combat. If not in Iraq, definitely in other operations.

    Also they were protesting at the wrong people, it would be like me complaining to you about the state of the education system.

    I think you're presuming a bit there. There was nothing to suggest they weren't from this country.

    It's a catch 22 situation. If you let them protest, it's distastefull to say the least, if not, it's a very dangerous slippery slope. Say for arguements sake we'd outlawed this because it's distastefull, where do you draw the line before you're getting to outlawing anti government protests.

    Personally I don't like what they're saying, but in any democracy, they must have the right to say it.

    I've been yelled at and spit at before. And as a professional I do not respond. These people just don't realize that without a military, you would not have protected rights. They live in a dream world.

    As for protesting, I'm all for it as long as it is peaceful and responsible. One thing that I hate is the disruptive protest (i.e. blocking intersections during rush hour). They should round all those people up and throw them in jail. It doesn't advance your cause anyway.

    True but it's still deliciously ironic that they will spend all their money and scream and shout and clog up the courts and take to the streets so that they can desperately stay in a country that they supposedly hate.

    Look at Abu Hamza... hates Britain to bits but has spent no small amount of money or time desperately fighting to stay here rather than go to the US... or Abu Qatada, hates Britain so much that he's going to a Human Rights Court as a last ditch effort to stay here.

    How anyone can take these people seriously I'll never know...

    Yeah we have people like that here... they're called London Underground.
