A little German hypocrisy.

From David's MedienKritik comes this little gem.

Gee, one of Germany's largest unions, whose president called on all it's members to protest against the US military as Warmongers... is concerned that the departure of the Warmongers might cost members jobs.

Hey - no one said life would be easy, that you can have your principles and eat them, too.

Of course, this reaction puts paid to the notion that the union leaders have principles that rise above the level of self-interest.
