Yeah but yeah but yeah but, all the excuses rapid, premature and more coming.
Were the Polish really asking for the worlds help in 1939? I don't mean were the Nazi's wrong to invade but did England really give a stuff for the victim?
I ask because when in 1945 when the poles became Russian did they say thanks very much? And did they remark, “ this is really so much better Thank god you stopped Hitler”
Sorry I only asked. Best intentions means England lost the second world war.
In 5 years Britain has been a supporter of wars that never threatened our borders and our defence forces have been sent into attack countless times sometimes even before the wars started.
So should the name 'British Defence forces' need to be changed?, because now we really do need Home land security to defend ourselves from the back lash that is apparently coming.
5 years ago the world was a safer place for us, with no need of identity cards, now our lives have changed, our country is at threat, there is by now no argument, because our leaders saw to that. Bringing war here by intention.
Body count is now poised to account for our loses as the word is we are under red alert, the Muslim freedom fighters live under our roofs, drive our taxis walk the streets and visit Tesco's and the message is fear.
Afghanistan attracted our attentions initially, named as the incubator of terrorist whose intention was to breed, mutate and spill over the sides into our lives here, as they spearhead a push to create a Muslim State within our region.
A Muslim state, in Chechnia,, run by Al Qeader, the centre of fear and evil the opposition to our Christian faith. How Evil, lucky Putin buries Muslims alive, food for weavils.
Islam laid claims are centre of our irrational fears and OBL was touted as its leader, a fundamentalist religious follower who aside from chosen faith is the equal as a counterpart to GWB junior. Both are supported by ardent god botherers and each as intent upon dishing out death as the other one, but there is really no contest.
OBL could never compete with our supreme leaders abilities in dishing out death to innocent civilians because there are too few of us gathered beneath bombs and OBL has too few missiles.
But are we as innocent as Middle Eastern populations? We share in the spoils that war brings to our nations, while their nations just gets spoilt. Contracts in rebuilding are ours by application, lots on offer with protection laid on. tenders and contracts awarded to western nations, as the Iraq economy gets trashed. Tankers of oil are also ours for the taking; along as you can beat the rush, Shared amongst the coalition of the willing while in the Middle East the cue for petrol grows longer and Iraq imports all its needs from outside its borders.
We all support our government whether we like it or not in this fake democracy, compulsory taxation is a bugger of a war donation which we will all pay through VAT.
Therefore we are all part of the support for war like it or not, therefore we can all claim guilty, and can no longer be counted as innocent casualties in the same way as the millions now that have died through a war of our nations making.
Outright failure in Afghanistan and in Iraq over 15years did not deter our war loving nation, as our leaders stood amongst the complete disaster the nations had become, they announced premature victory, and said the battle had been won.
The Afghan people were never asked if they wanted democracy, they never stood a chance. Troops from every nation descended into bomb craters to preside over the transformation of a poor state into a ruined environment but Afghans had seen it all before.
Yes they knew us before our nations sent troops, we were known by reputation from old track records from years before.
America sent troops to Afghanistan after the 2nd world war to build a reservoir, a well intentioned act of benevolence, a valley was chosen in another’s nation and the grand arch of a concrete dam wall began to emerge designed to close over the stream that serviced fields, villages and populations as it had done for thousands of years.
No villager was questioned or asked or really wanted what was offered, they just watched in amazement as foreigners set about the task.
The people were not consulted, but then who does not want water you ask, why would they argue? Why would primitive people need to be asked?. So the Americans set about the mission and employed locals to fetch and carry while their professionals laboured with drawings and dynamited footings.
It was all done in benevolence humanitarian aided ideals, so that fresh water would bring easy living to the poor wretches who lived in dry conditions, scratching a living during dust storms, America offered tecnology and economic surplus.
The dam was built, America took photo opportunities and announced to the world we can help third world poor people, we are like gods!
Sure for a while the dam held water and for a while the people saw the amazing thing the Americans had done for free and they even clapped and cheered because they had never seen so much water and had never seen so many white people eager to do something for nothing.
Then the crops died, because the water was salty, the Americans had built a dam over a salt mine, a salt mine the Afghans knew was there, but they had never been asked to share local knowledge. Having never been invited too the planning stages, they had no voice above the sales pitches that turned subsistence living into no life at all.
Of course I'm not saying the same will happen for their Democracy, because lets face it ours has gone the same way as the water in the dam, because no one asked the population, now did they?
Thankyou for your time
