Foreign Aid: The Epitome Of Politically Correct Stupidity

Interesting story from breitbart, London which confirms what I have said many times, that lefties are the most selfish, egocentric bunch of hypocrites imaginable. Everything they do, they do only to be seen doing it, everything they support they do only to be heard supporting it.

Remember all the screeching about how we had to support america in bombing the crap out of third world countries because the resident dictator was / is “A ruthless tyrant who is slaughtering his own people.” Turns out at the same time these hypocrites were screeching for us to give more in development aid to the self same tyrants (and some even nastier than the ones we bombed).

I love irony, don’t you?

Britain ‘Gave £1 Billion to World’s Most Corrupt Countries’

Britain gave more than £1 billion to some of the world’s most corrupt countries in 2013, possibly even helping fund extremism, despite numerous warnings that the money was being misspent.

Anti-corruption group Transparency International says that all but 20 of the worst countries in the world for corruption received money from Britain, with figures revealing that British aid to these countries increased by almost 25 percent in 2013 as the government tried to keep up with its controversial target to give 0.7 percent of GDP in aid.

The Daily Mail reports that the countries which have received the most UK money include Somalia and South Sudan whose central governments remain unable to control vast swathes of their own territory. In Somalia, terror groups are also reported to extort large amounts of aid money through ‘taxes’, leading to fears that Britain is inadvertently funding extremism.

Even North Korea, with its oppressive communist regime, received money from the British government.

Although much of the money to corrupt nations is channelled through aid agencies rather than central governments, many of these groups end up being forced to hand over at least part of it. In Somalia, it often ends up in the hands of the Al-Shabaab terror group.

Conservative MP Philip Davies said that giving aid to these countries was a “colossal waste of money”, warning that voters may not tolerate their taxes being spent on corrupt foreign regimes.

“It is completely unacceptable. We should not be giving money to countries who have not got their houses in order.

“This is exactly why you hear people saying that foreign aid is taking money from poor people in rich countries and giving it to rich people in poor countries – you might as well stick a Mercedes catalogue in the envelope.”

Iraq’s Sunni Insurgency another American fucxxx foreign policy fiasco

iraq isis crisis

The story of the unfolding events in Iraq is one of lost opportunities. By December 2013, many Sunni leaders had become tired of the jihadi group the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) actions, in their areas and on the other side of the border in Syria, and publicly supported the federal government’s military campaign against the group’s bases. At that time, the momentum against ISIS offered a renewed opportunity for Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to work with these Sunni tribal and religious leaders to combat terrorism.

Instead, Maliki gave a speech in which he portrayed his planned military campaign in Anbar as an ancient war between “the followers of Hussein and the followers of Yazid,” a reference to a 7th century defining Shia battle. The campaign in Anbar has been a disaster, and that failure is directly relevant to today’s crisis. The Iraqi forces failed to dislodge the jihadis and, even worse, Maliki took several steps that played into the hands of extremists.

Today, the simplistic portrayal by media and world politicians of the rebellion in Iraq risks making a similar mistake. Headlines as well as political statements focused on ISIS as the only force behind the takeover of several Sunni cities north of Baghdad. And although more recent coverage started to acknowledge the presence of other forces, the dynamics in Sunni areas are still far more complex. But regardless of the extent of its role, ISIS is only one faction in the insurgency. There are at least half a dozen groupings that took part in the offensive. We in the west need not concern ourselves greatly with details of the factions that make up the ISIS rebel army in Iraq. What is far more worrying is the determination The Rent Boy President, Barack Hussein Obama to muscle in on the action.

We must all be aware by now that the ineffectual American leader is an arested adolescent who like most fifteen year olds have a vastly inflated opinion of his own talents (or lack thereof) and linke so many little boys of that age he is an attention seeker. Though there are plenty of problems requiring The Presiden’s urgent attention in the USA he cannot abide the fact that he is not the centre of attention in world news. And so he is stiking his oar in, and the likely consequences as with all American interventions can only lead to catastrophe.

On Friday we learned that Obama is asking Congress for $500 million for the so-called Syrian rebels. Apparently he does not realize that the problem he says he wants to solve – ISIL terrorists overrunning Iraq and Syria – was created by the US and its allies’ funding of the Syrian insurgents. Throwing more money and arms at the “Syrian rebels” would be throwing fire starter on the fire.

Obama, of course, doesn’t see it that way. He claims that he has finally learned to tell the difference between the “good rebels” and the “bad rebels.” According to the Associated Press, “administration officials say the U.S. has grown increasingly confident in recent months about its ability to distinguish the moderate rebels from the more extremist elements that include the al-Qaida-inspired Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, which has stormed into Iraq and captured much of the northern part of the country.”

These administration officials are tacitly admitting that the US has been “inadvertently” arming ISIL – a vicious terrorist group that was expelled from al-Qaeda for being too extreme. They want us to believe it was a mistake.

If those administration officials are right, Obama should be impeached for incompetence. Allowing American dollars to build and grow ISIL, even by mistake, would be a blunder of colossal proportions.

But was it really a mistake? Many credible reports have emerged that the US has been intentionally funding ISIL. This week, investigative journalists found strong evidence that the CIA has trained and armed ISIL terrorists at a secret base in Jordan. While Press TV and other alternative media outlets are covering these revelations, the mainstream Western media has suppressed them.

So these US administration officials are lying when they tell us: “In the past we were inadvertently funding ISIL, but now we have figured out who they are, so we won’t give them any more American taxpayers’ money. We promise to hand the next $500 million to other groups.”

Such a claim is preposterous. In fact, the US has been behind the rise of ISIL all along. And if Congress is stupid and evil enough to approve Obama’s request for another $500 million, ISIL will get the lion’s share of that, too.

It is extremely dangerous to spray barbecue starter on a lighted fire, as any fule kno. But according to recent reports, it seems the American president isn’t that smart.

Bring Back Our Hummer, ISIS Mocks Obama’s ‘Hashtag Diplomacy’

I’m starting to warm to those fanatical nutters of ISIS who are busy trying to recreate an Islamic Caliphate in the middle east. The world is becoming a more divided and hostile place every day, fanatical nutterism seems to be replacing mealy mouthed, politically correct consensus everywhere.

So if we jave to live alongside fanatical nutters I prefer them to be nutters with a sense of humour, and ISIS look to fit that niche far better than feminists, militant gays, Marxists, Tortskyites and right wing extremists like The Liberal Democrats.

Remember a few weeks ago in the lull between Putin annexing Ukraine and ISIS beginning their mach on Baghdad, headline news was all about Nigerian terrorist group Boko Haram kidnapping 200 schoolgirls. Michelle Obama, attempting to gain publicity for one of her fund raising projects, posed with a rather professional looking ‘home made’ placard demanding “Bring Back Our Girls”

michy o bring back our girls

This seemed to tickle the ISIS press office team somewhat, maybe they saw the irony in the fact that the kidnapped girls are in no sense relation to Mrs. Obama, “our” girls, being neither family members, Americans not Christians (which the Obamas are – allegedly).

Last Friday we learned at Michy’s “heartfelt” plea (because the petulant expression shows she is very, very sincere – or maybe she was just wearing her ugly knickers again that day) had failed; “Nigeria wrapped up its inquiry into the abduction of more than 200 schoolgirls by militants on Friday with little progress to show, reporting almost none had been freed after the initial kidnapping some girls escaped from.” Associated Press reported.

The Obama Administrations “smart diplomacy” came in for some cruel criticism, as it had over the debacles in Egypt, Yemen,Libya, Syria, Afghanitan, Iraq, South Sudan and everywhere else.

Up until this point in time however, mocking the administration’s imploding foreign policy and the ineptitude of the FUKUS axis was largely a pastime for American Conservative media and bloggers in Western Europe, for the simple reason that Russians were preoccupied with annexing Crimea, China was busy replacing the US Dollar as global reserve currency, Iran was busy defending Shi’ite dominated areas and the Syrian / Iraqi revolution was taking over Kurdish oil fields, or repelling US-trained and armed militants to spare time to troll the first lady.

That changed this past week when none other than the Al-Qaeda extremist spinoff which in recent weeks has overrun half of Iraq, ISIS, and which as we reported managed to “confiscate” an unknown number of US-made Black Hawk helicopters and Humvees, decided to use the same outlet, Twitter, to not only mock Michelle Obama, but US foreign policy in Iraq. It is here that Obama’s foreign policy is currently paralyzed with the president seemingly unable to decide if he will send in troops, or “Military advisors” as he eupemistically calls them, whether he will side with Iran or with Saudi Arabia, whether he will protect the Maliki cabinet that until last week had America’s blessing, or he will let Russia, China and Iran sort it out beteen themselves.

According to Al Arabiya, “the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has made a mockery of the U.S. first lady Michelle Obama through series of tweets accompanied by the hashtag: #bringbackourhumvee.”

If William Hague Looked Like This I’d Vote Tory

moldova-foreign-ministerNina Shtanski, Foreign Affairs Minister of Moldova Breakaway Province Transdniestria

There’s more trouble brewing around the Back Sea as in the wake of Crimea’s rejoining The Russian Federation and the EU and USA leaders retaliating by cancelling the bus passes of seven Russian senior citizens or something, another former Soviet republic looks set to split with the ethic Russian province of Transdniestria demanding it be allowed to secede from Moldova and rejoin Russia.

Now the only thing I know about Transdniestria is they’ve got the best looking foreign affairs spokesperson in the world, in fact next to Nina, William Hague and John Kerry look like the front and back ends of a motorway pile up. And former US Secretary of State and wannabe President Hillary Rodham Clinton looks like something from the middle. (And forget the Presidency Hilly, no way is The Emperor Obama going to quit after his two terms are up).

The trouble in Moldova will be another blow to the EU / New World Order dream of an extended Europe, pulling all the former Soviet states, the Balkans, Turkey, the middle east and north Africa under the control of the corporate – banking cartel.

The glamorous foreign minister of the breakaway region is calling on Vladimir Putin to make her country his next conquest in eastern Europe.

Though few have heard of Transdniestria which sounds like a fictional country in a 1950s spy thriller it is in fact a strategically important location and senior Western politicians are alarmed that following the annexation of Crimea it’s reunion with Mother Russia may be the next step in a Kremlin masterplan to redraw the frontiers of Europe.

That a top diplomat in staunchly pro-Russian Transdniestria, who has a penchant for revealing black dresses, is gushing in her praise of Putin’s takeover of the Black Sea peninsula can only add to their worries.

Nina is openly inviting The Kremlin to make the same move in her landlocked territory of 509,000 people, wedged between strife-torn Ukraine and Moldova. Read more:

Bizarrely, on the same day as Nina got em out for the boys this news broke, we learned that:

Britons Rate Russia More Favorably Than European Union

Even bearing in mind that few Britons have lived in Russia, that’s still quite a surprise but how credible is it?

from Zero Hedge

One would think that for all its demonization in the Western press, not to mention the countless comparisons to Hitler and/or the Antichrist, that Putin’s Russia would be viewed relatively negatively especially in that bastion of western thought: Britain. Yes, perhaps: it certainly doesn’t have a sterling image. However what is remarkableis that depite recent events in the Crimea, Britons still see Russia in a more positive light than the European Union, despite recent tensions with Moscow over Ukraine, according to a poll published on Saturday.

Perhaps this is not surprising, because as AFP reports, voters in Britain are also equally divided about whether to remain in the 28-member bloc, a subject on which Prime Minister David Cameron has promised a referendum in 2017 and which is the reason for the blistering ascent in popularity of such political parties as the UKIP.

The league table of 27 “liked” countries and institutions put the European Parliament — for which elections are being held in May — sixth from bottom, and the EU fourth from bottom.

Only Saudi Arabia, Iran and North Korea ranked below the European parliament when those polled were asked how positive or negative they felt towards them. Israel was fifth from bottom and Russia was seventh from bottom. Canada was top.

But does it make sense for Britons to look east for leadership and security. Well as a commenter at Zero Hedge remarked:

“I would too if I realized I stood a good chance of being hacked to death in the streets by a fanatic Muslim.

Stuff like that doesn’t happen in Russia.”

VOTE UKIP or anybody else that is not linked to the three main parties.

Rooney to Ref – Swive you, you aersling. Boggart Blog World Cup Exclusive

We hear from our dung beetle in Durban that foreign referee’s officiating in England’s group matches and whose command of the English vernacular is poor are attending classes to help them understand British “bad words” so that they may earn the promised bungs from Russia and Spain by sending off Wayne Rooney for ungentlemanly conduct.

Rooney you may remember upset a local ref in one of England’s warm up matches by telling the hapless official to fuck off after serial opposing defenders had carved their names in stud marks on the England striker’s legs.

Boggart Blog. though not a football blog is as patriotic as any British blog can be so we had a brain storming session to come up with a scheme to protect Roo from over zealous foreign referees. We are sending out our expert on medieval English, Grammercy Pecksniff to coach Rooney in using archaic swear words and insulting phrases words even English referees will not understand.

Here are some samples of what you may look forward to:
Go and swive yourself ref, you blind catamite
Keep up with lay you stupid aersling
You’re about as much use as a pox–whore’s scablouse.
It was a good goal you swiving quente.

With these we hope Rooney will be able to vent his spleen in safety.
