"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."

Gadaffi's Scorched Earth

Governments have dealt with this mad man for forty-one years; the world & his mother-in-law has dealt with this man and his regime. I don't think any of them can claim the high moral ground now and assert that by dealing with him they've encouraged him into 'the fold'. All it's done is feed his delusions, no matter what Blair says. Once a loose cannon, always a loose cannon.

People the world over could have told them that but they insist on their way, on their diplomacy, and they smirk at us because we 'don't understand'. I think we understand passive agreement and acquiesence when we see it.

It was only September 2009 when Gadaffi lambasted the UN Security Council for "failing to prevent sixty-five wars" since 1945.
"Now, brothers, there is no respect for the United Nations, no regard for the General Assembly."
What chance is there that this deranged muppet will heed a tabled censure from the UN that's taken ten days to hammer out?  They won't even refer him to the International Criminal Court if he gets out of this alive.  I hope he doesn't;  I  hope the people of Libya re-take their freedom the only way it's possible for people to do in such circumstances and I hope they'll cast a cold eye on  whoever they put in his place.

Getting global agreement to aim the bomb that takes Gadaffi and his family out of the equation - and we know it can be done - is worse than useless.  I'd rather be an independent, sovereign country that looks to itself and the world for trading partners but bows to no man when asked to condone genocide with wimpish, weasel words.  In today's current global thinking, not even a sniper could do the job - at least not one condoned by our self-elected 'global elite' world leaders.

The world is tied up in knots and ethics & morals have gone to the wall.  The decay is mirrored locally too,  hence the retreat of police and justice from our own streets and courts.  It's time the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland ruffled a few feathers and spoke more strongly against authoritarian regimes; though whether there's a genuine will and what we could back it up with, militarily, is debatable

Lately I've found myself wishing I was an end-of-dayer so  I'd have something to look forward to.  As it is I just see more of the same-old-same-old  until civil strife breaks out - and I'm not talking about a few well-larded Union shysters or bank-account-heavy SWP members getting a couple of thousand students on the streets.

I tell you, the day a British government turns puts troops on to the streets to confront British people is the day that government dies.  You've read about the SAS being deployed on the streets of London haven't you?

'Troops', in this modern, post-democratic and progressive phase we're going through, means EuroGendFor (which, itself, has probably had its name changed in the past two years) - their armed police have been in our southern Ports of England for years.  For us, nothing changes.  All they do is have a meeting, change their name, bill us for the re-branding and hey presto!  Everything recyles.

The Middle East has its problems but so do we - theirs are more pressing because they're being shot if they stray in front of a window but ours are looming.  I really want to know who are the voices behind the curtain because it's beyond time that we brought that curtain down and put an end to global exploitation.

The msm can go hang as well.

  1. Terrific post but how meekly our sheeples queue up for subjugation and future slaughter.

  2. It's frustrating, OR. On the one hand we can count our democratic blessings but on the other, if you scratch the political surface, they're just as self-serving as anywhere else - the difference is that ours wear velvet gloves.
