The Decision To Permit Bombing In Syria

I am quite concerned by the fact that the country seems to consider the need to fly across the border from Iraq to Syria is the same as the dreadful mistake made by Blair and Bush to invade Iraq and then Afghanistan.

Blair and Bush have caused untold misery in the middle east and north Africa by their crusade to oust middle-eastern dictatorships and install the alien concept of democracy in its place. Western interference in Muslim countries has turned the middle-east from an area which welcomed visitors to one which no sensible non-Muslim will visit. This, in itself, has damaged their tourist industries, causing yet more blame to be heaped upon western nations and inspiring the religious fanatics of Daesh to grow in strength and influence.

Religious Nutters

EarthBelieve in God?

Where was he last night and on that flight from Egypt? It is, of course, the irrational belief in an afterlife by these religious fanatics which encouraged them to carry out the atrocities. They believed that they would now be sitting at God’s right hand because of their martyrdom in His name. How many of you also believe that you will one day die and go to heaven and meet your relatives all over again? It is a stupid childish belief, like a security blanket. The trouble is the fanatics are born out of that same belief. The belief in God is the cause of all of this hatred and violence yet people still blindly accept it is all part of the nonentity’s grand plan for his universe. Come on guys, grow up!

Without doubt the ideology we are facing is on a level comparable with the Nazi’s. We have a professional army financed by us all. It should be geared up to deal with this group without mercy. Like everyone who believes in the great nonentity, you cannot reason with them and they continue to rape, murder and enslave children, men and women, throughout the northern middle east. There remains only one alternative if our way of life is going to be upheld. Continue reading

Islamic Terrorism? Christian Fundamentalism? The Difference Is Just A Couple of Centuries!

Are you able to put aside your beliefs for fifteen minutes? Sadly those who really should be reading this are so indoctrinated that they will probably not.

Human beings have an enormous capacity for love, generosity and compassion, yet those who feel compelled to incorporate that into an organised sanctimonious and convoluted worship of a God who threatens punishment if they misjudge their application of free will, are increasingly adding credence to those who use that very devotion as the foundation for the development of fanaticism and terrorism. Some use the belief in a higher power to convince themselves they should do good works, but others distort those same beliefs to persuade themselves that the same deity requires them to kill and murder to carry out His mysterious plan. What is tragic is that one group don’t seem to realise that their continued conviction in an invented god reinforces the other group’s certainty that their twisted interpretation is justified. Everyone believes in God so God must be great! It is a simple logic.

As our news channels bombard us with stories of beheading, beach massacres and slaughter in mosques, does no one wonder why these individuals are prepared to give up their lives to create such misery and despair within the lives of others?

The Caring Face Of Britain – I Don’t Think!

It has started. David Cameron has had an overall majority for five days and we are already pumping out the warning signs of Tory lack of compassion. This time it is African and middle-eastern refugees.

Can you imagine for a moment what it would be like to be one of those poor people risking your life and that of your family to get across the Mediterranean to the safety of Europe. An escape from countries which Britain and the west have turned into civil disaster zones.

What Are We Remembering?

11am on 11th November 2014. The Great War began in 1914 and there have more than the usual commemorations this year, but what are we remembering?

Let me say, before proceeding with this post, that this is not a grumble at our serving soldiers, nor those who have given their lives in past conflicts.

There are no longer any surviving soldiers from World War One. There are very few alive today who even remember any of these soldiers from their childhood. Soon everyone who was alive during that conflict will have died.

So are we remembering people we didn’t know who are epitomised by ancient faded monochrome photographs or is it just a remembrance of all soldiers killed in all conflicts?

Ukraine. Isn’t this what I’ve been saying all along? Better put though.

I’m hoping ForeignAffairs.com won’t mind me copying part of the article taken from this page. to get John Mearsheimer’s excellent points across.

Borrowed from Reuters via ForeignAffairs.com

According to the prevailing wisdom in the West, the Ukraine crisis can be blamed almost entirely on Russian aggression. Russian President Vladimir Putin, the argument goes, annexed Crimea out of a long-standing desire to resuscitate the Soviet empire, and he may eventually go after the rest of Ukraine, as well as other countries in eastern Europe. In this view, the ouster of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych in February 2014 merely provided a pretext for Putin’s decision to order Russian forces to seize part of Ukraine.

Invade Iraq; re-arm them; Army abandons weapons; enemy takes them; arm Kurds to destroy enemy’s arms! Great thinking!

American weaponry being used by ISIS terroristsThe heading shows that the American arms industry has almost the same potential as the undertaking industry. And how similar they are. I wonder if they have formed a cartel? You cause all the deaths and make money doing it then we’ll bury the dead. Admittedly they haven’t quite got the hang of exporting funeral services and have, so far, only got as far as creating the dead bodies.
