About two years ago the left-wing Nazis and other want-war oddballs were screaming for our government and the rest of the EU to support calls to war from President Hopey – Changey, Nobel PEACE Prize Obama, who wanted to send in troops under the cover of air strikes to help the brave, democracy loving, human organ noshing freedom fighters overthrow the brutal tyrant Assad.
I came in for some criticism for suggesting we should stay out of Syria and all other local conflicts in the middle east and that while tyrants like Assad, Saddam and Gadaffi were authoritarian and oppressive at least they maintained a kind of order compared to what would replace them.
About a year ago, frustrated by Assad’s refusal to crumble and angered by the resistance of russia, China and Iran in resisting the planned American hegemony, Obama tried again. A poisoned gas attack for which the USA was too quick to blame forces loyal to Assad was proved to be a false flag incident, the gas having been fired by members of the terrorist rabble the USA had stitched together with funding and free weapons to fight Obama’s proxy war in the middle east
Again the ‘liberal’ want – war brigade tried to deny the mountain of evidence pointing to American efforts to manipulate events and provoke a regional war. And then things went quiet for a while. In the lull, the terrorist rabble, armed with American weapons supplied via internediaries like Turkey and Qatar, trained by American military advisers and funded by American and Saudi Arabian money formed ISIL / ISIS / Islamic state and set about re – establishing the medieval Islamic Caliphate complete with public floggings and beheadings, women being treated as their father’s or husband’s property and theocratic governments to enforce Sharia Law. And that’s what our ‘dark-skin-good-pale-skin-bad’ progressive liberals call as result is it? One delusional idiot who thinks he can impress us by waving his academic qualifications in our faces commented in the usual sneering tone of someone with the kind of absofuckinglute certainty of his superiority that can only come from having less brain cells than testicles, commented, “You can’t call what existed under those tyrants order.”
Can’t I? A recent poll showed 70% of Libyans think life was better under Assad. Over 50% of Syrians supported Assad all through the civil war (if they hadn’t he would not still be in power. We are witnessing in every television news bulletin the folly of overthrowing Saddam but lacking the commitment to leave an occupying army in his place.
And now this:
Britain must talk to dictator Assad to defeat ISIL (aki ISIS aka Islamic State), says General Lord Dannatt, former head of British Army
Britain must co-operate with President Assad, the Syrian dictator, in order to confront Isil, the former head of the Army has said. General Lord Dannatt, the former Chief of General Staff, said the West must secure the permission of the Syrian government in order to launch airstrikes on Islamist militants.
The remarks came as US General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said strikes inside Syria are necessary to defeat the organisation.
General Lord Dannatt’s comments come almost a year since David Cameron lost a Commons vote authorising air strikes on President Assad in response to chemical weapons attacks on civilians action that would likely have toppled him from power.
Britain and its allies have repeatedly called for Assad to step down to bring the three-year civil war that spawned Isil to an end.
“The Syrian dimension has got to be addressed. You cannot deal with half a problem,” he said. Isil must be “opposed, confronted and defeated in Iraq and Syria before it spreads through the region, Lord Dannatt told BBC Radio 4.
I don’t know what is is about the left wing mindset that produces such an immutable inability to learn from past mistakes but just as socialist governments always a) screw up the economy of the country they govern and b) drift towards fascism and coercive law enforcement, so they are unable to understand from numerous failures that many nations around the world are just not ready for minority friendly, immigration obessed, nanny state pseudo-democracy. What makes their stupidity worse of course it when the social democratic model they try to impose fails they always attempt to prop it up by dropping bombs. I wonder if by now my critics will have learned enough common sense to STF up and see how things play out. And I will look forward to a grovelling apology from one academic clown. He needn’t think that any comment other than a grovelling apology will stay in the thread for long.
