Liz O'Donnell: sometimes an option

* Liz O'Donnell writes that "sometimes war is the honourable thing to do".

Some may wholly disagree with this statement, believing war to be an invention of the ignorant. It involves an ignorance of conflict resolution and political debate, a total disregard for the human worth of all sides caught up in it and, ultimately, ignorance of the catastrophic physical and psychological aftermath borne by its survivors.

If she feels that war is honourable, let her offer herself as a volunteer from, in her own words, "the rudderless and weak EU".
