Does Cook realise what he is asking?

The Daily Telegraph asks Robin Cook MP if he has really thought through his request for the recall of UK troops.

why can't we read what he said ... once again a whole article built around a seven word incomplete quote eg "home before more of them are killed" sheesh is this journalism?

Um if you had looked to your right on the screen there is a link to an in-depth article on the row with links to his statement. (http://www.portal.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2003/03/31/ncook31.xml). It helps if you look around before you condemn.

so what, that link is not referenced in the article and that link itself has dozens of other links related to it. the main article was the subject not the endless links. furthermore the original quoted article did not "ask" Robin Cook anything, it merely put words in his mouth, a cheap device.

Stephen Pollard highlights Cook's self-pity.

OK angrYkook, here it is, two levels of links deep.

Robin Cook is a knobhead and a kook, and a loose cannon to boot. I have been wondering for years why Blair put up with him. Maybe now he can get a job as the Honorary "Consul" of the Palestinian [Terrorist] Authority. (If Caligula's horse could be a consul, why not a horse's ass?)

This is my take on what Cook is up to:
