"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Blood For Resources

I'm cheating a bit this morning - I posted these photos of Gadaffi being feted by the internationalistas last September.

This post isn't intended to condone or excuse the questionable dealings with Libya  (I'm with Kampfner on this one); it's intended to highlight the hypocrisy of other nations pointing the finger. Who remembers this record US/Saudi arms deal?  To paraphrase Cameron: They're all in it together.

US/UN 'condemn' UK
US accuses UK
Kampfner article: UK always happy to oblige

  1. Good to see that old chancer Romano Prodi in there so no danger of the EU trying to look cool on the issue.

  2. GV, your link to Uprising has been censored by youtube, it is reposted at eyetube but I'm sure you already knew that.

  3. Thanks Banned - I hadn't spotted it. Changed now.

    In the photos I think you might mean Barroso (?) - but essentially they're all the same and they all signed off on selling more arms to Libya so they have no reason to feel self-righteous about these terrible consequences.

  4. Was it Barosso? As you say, they are all the same.
