Just when you thought the Americans had reached the limit of their stupidity………

The shooting down of a Russian jet suggests the US has supplied terrorists with manpads.

If it weren’t the Americans directly, it will have been authorised by them. The worlds passenger jets have just become very real targets with the use of the lethal surface to air portable hand held missile system. The weapon is highly manoeuvrable and subsequently not easy to detect. It’s success rate is extremely high and in the hands of the mentally challenged, easily influenced and backward ISIS freaks, the danger to all aircraft has risen tenfold.

These people aren’t rational nor religious. They have contorted their holy scriptures in such an outlandish way that they no longer resemble the original text. There is no concern for others, no empathy, no respect for human life, particularly the people they conclude are not in line with their drug fuelled ideology.

The US and primarily the Israelis have been itching to give the rabid extremists some of these weapons. Why would they put ALL aircraft at risk? They didn’t. They must still have control of the manpads. They wouldn’t risk their own commercial airlines, not even to remove Assad. It is today rumoured that a neighbouring country has supplied the manpads, suggesting it could be Turkey. If this is the case, it would still be with the Americans approval.

If indeed Turkey are involved, the repercussions could be very damaging. Russia has already shown how it can damage the Turkish economy. Any further sanctions to punish Erdogan wouldn’t be so publicly acknowledged. Putin is in a different league to most leaders around the world, reprisals from him could be devastating for Turkey. Putin hasn’t been deterred by pressure from US allies and is still carrying on with his policy in Syria. The results of this latest terrorist action will create interesting times. If I were a gambling man, my money would be on Putin.

Shoot first, ask questions later.

The majority of British police now think they should be armed.

The continued use of excessive force during armed confrontations indicates that British police and firearms don’t blend well. A suspect has been killed today in an operation involving numerous armed police and it’s apparent that this particular victim was never going to to escape with his life intact.

No details have been released yet but a couple of images have emerged.

The first thing that strikes me is that there should be two bullet holes in the rear window. What are the rules of engagement? I imagined they would only fire if they felt that officers were in imminent danger if they didn’t. Clearly that is not the case because the suspect was still sat in the drivers seat when he was fired at from behind. If it takes this many bullets to take out a suspect, it signifies lack of expertise in the use of weapons.

Recently, it’s been announced that the majority of police officers support the arming of the force. If specialist police units continue to show incompetence and panic when dealing with very well planned operations, it instills no confidence.

As i’ve said before, when these two combinations are mixed, it will ultimately end in death for a suspect. The sight of UK police with semi automatic weapons is terrifying and the practice should be resisted. Police officers killed by armed suspects is thankfully a very small number. Arming all officers to protect themselves would mean more civilian victims and more cover ups.

A report in the notorious stranger to the truth, the Daily Mail claims that the red car was ‘chased’ down the motorway. I can’t tell what sort of car it is, what I can say with certainty is that it ISN’T a Ferrari.

Tim Rhodes – A fitting memorial.

tims seat

It must take a very distinct mentality to prevent a decent and honourable person the opportunity for his friends to say goodbye. That a complete family would allow such a thing is unfathomable. Only the most heinous criminal activity would normally result in the deceased being secretly buried or cremated without even the slightest acquaintance to observe the ceremony. This is what happened to Tim Rhodes and so far as i’m aware, the whereabouts of his grave is still unknown to any of his friends.

Because he made such a positive impact on the people that knew him, it couldnt be left like this. For some reason, his closest living relative, his brother Andrew rendered his passing a non event.

Yesterday, in Cherry Willingham, Lincolnshire a seat was unveiled in memory of Tim, which had been paid for by his many good friends in the village and beyond.

Tim didn’t have much time for religion but that’s not to say he wasn’t spiritual. Outwardly, he would have dismissed the idea of a park bench with his name on it but I think (and I am sure many of his friends would agree) that he would have been pleased to be held in such high esteem that people cared enough to do it.

So, despite the efforts of his relatives, Tim will be remembered long after their miserable lives have been snuffed out. During his battle with cancer, they only ‘cared’ enough to make sure that they were the recipients of all his valuables but when it came to his funeral, the truth was revealed.

Once a banker, always a banker, Andrew Rhodes, take a bow.

UK Election choice.

Boris Johnson confirms unquestioning support for US aggression.

Jeremy Corbyn would explore every diplomatic avenue.

At last we have a choice in a General Election. Boris Johnson’s declaration to support the US, who are threatening illegal attacks on a sovereign nation without any significant evidence, was an unusually honest statement from a politician. Theresa May was quick to back pedal on Johnson’s statement, claiming there are no plans to attack Syria.

Trump has gone from being a complete joke amongst UK politicians to being a ‘respected world statesman’. Before he became President, he was the subject of numerous derisory comments from UK media and politicians but opinions have suddenly changed. Basically, a failed attack on a Syrian airbase has done wonders for his reputation. In fact, just about all his manifesto promises have been left in tatters and this is the reason the media have suddenly found him to be ‘Our President’.

Corbyn has declared that any accusation of war crimes should go to the UN, which is the correct and legal way to solve any major dispute. The Conservatives are insisting we should believe a fraudulent journalist who is really a terrorist, a disgraced former doctor who was recently on terrorist charges or a group of ISIS affiliates masquerading as ‘first responders’.

Thanks to big mouth Boris at least we know what a vote for the Conservatives means – The same old illegal attacks on weaker countries that resists our efforts to inflict our kind of ‘democracy’ on them. In the case of Syria, it means removing a secular government that looks after the people of all religions for a bunch of murderous criminals that don’t even believe in democracy.





 

We are about to find out just how many people in the UK really are anti-war.

Charles Lister.

Charles Lister is an expert on Middle East related politics. How do we know? Because he told us so and he’s a ‘senior fellow’ at the Middle East Institute (whatever that means). His profile claims: ‘Lister also managed nearly three years of intensive face-to-face engagement with the leaderships of over 100 Syrian armed opposition groups’.

That’s quite an achievement considering that most Westerners who encountered these people at close quarters, didn’t have a long life expectancy. Lister’s most recent tweets (he’s a prolific tweeter) concentrate on the chemical weapon attack at Khan Sheikhoun, of which he has just concluded that Assad did it and there is incontrovertible evidence supporting his claim.

Lister criticises Russia for demanding OPCW involvement and then dismissing their results. He knows as well as anyone that there has to be absolute security of the samples for the results to be verified. The integrity of the suspected chemical weapons has to be assured by a chain of custody, whereby the samples are guaranteed to be tamper free. So far as I’m aware, all the samples retained cannot be verified.

Khan Sheikhoun is in a rebel held area. No one could have got close to the ‘scene of the crime’ without the ruling terrorists allowing it. Furthermore, as each hour went by, the alleged site of the attack was open to contamination, manipulation and tampering. Images a day or so apart have already proven that an item was removed from the bomb crater.

Lister supports his accusation that Assad was responsible by quoting the governments of Turkey, Israel, US, France and UK. All the aforementioned governments have not just passively but actively supported any opposition to the Syrian Arab Army, no matter what they did in terms of criminal activities or their extremist ideology. He missed out two other nations who support the claim. Those bastions of democracy, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Turkey has allowed the porous border with Syria to be a crossing point for thousands of terrorists.   Israel have treated terrorists at field hospitals and attacked Syrian assets on numerous occasions . United Kingdom has donated £ millions and and given equipment to the extremist White Helmets. United States have killed many Syrian Arab Army troops and destroyed bridges over the Euphrates.    France have been undermining the Syrian government and been involved in ‘coalition’ attacks.

So, we can conclude that unless a chain of custody can be absolutely guaranteed for the samples, any results or conclusions are null and void. Lister knows this but continues his claims and arguments as if the integrity had been maintained.

Despite his studious appearance, Lister is an avid supporter of military action. His many meetings with terrorists shows he has a strong stomach for violence – inflicted on to others. His friends in ISIS and al Qa’ida have made the lives of ordinary Syrians an absolute misery and he has been on the sidelines cheering them on, claiming that Assad’s removal is his priority. Well Mr Lister, I think you should give the Syrian people some credit and allow them to decide who should be the head of their nation. Your support and cooperation with terrorist groups are well documented.

Lister reminds me of that other self proclaimed UK ‘expert’, Eliot Higgins. I would put money on neither of them having been in a conflict area similar to the one they are insisting the Syrian people should endure. They must be earning a lot of money for supporting ‘regime change’ and inflicting such conditions on people they don’t even know. They ignore the fact that at least 55% of Syrians are living in government areas and that SAA liberated villages and towns are relieved to be rid of the extremist zealots that Lister and Elliot support… Because they were making their lives intolerable.

If they believe in the cause to remove Assad so much, maybe they should join the hundreds of other brain washed British fools fighting for extremist groups in Syria. That they have only a remote relationship with any real Islamic values doesn’t appear to deter the ‘mercenaries’ already travelled to Syria, I’m sure it wouldn’t bother these two armchair warriors.

If these two British snakes had any good intentions towards Syrians, they would advocate the withdrawing of any uninvited parties, which would include the five governments he gives so much credence to above. It would also mean the 70,000 moderates Lister so laughably claimed were fighting against Syrian Arab Army and its allies. There never were remotely near that number.

UK general election set for June 8th……

There really is a choice this time….At least in principle.

The polls show Theresa May well ahead of Jeremy Corbyn and she has seized on the chance of (what she will see as) an easy victory. If it’s down to mainstream media, it will be easy. They will all support the Conservative Party and ridicule Corbyn, hoping to destroy any remote chance of him winning. Also fighting against Corbyn will be a good number of Labour Members of Parliament, supposedly his own side. Having previously tried to get rid of him, they will be hoping a disastrous election result will be his death knoll.

I don’t know the procedure for selecting candidates to represent the Labour Party but if they are going to be defeated, they might as well go down without the help of their own team. I would urge any selection process to take into consideration the treacherous MP’s that have attempted to get rid of Corbyn, repeatedly.

The differences between May and Corbyn.

Corbyn does not support British intervention in overseas conflicts that do not involve us. He doesn’t believe austerity is working. Corbyn is tentatively pro Europe, so would be an alternative to May’s Brexit obligations. If Theresa May’s tenure as Home Secretary is anything to go by, civil liberties and freedom of speech will not be at the top of her priorities. Conservative Party promises to reduce immigration have been a complete and utter failure. Of course, it has to be controlled, this isn’t a huge island but government policy abroad has vastly increased the numbers of refugees in the Middle East and particularly Libya in North Africa. Turkey are controlling the amount of Syrians likely to opt for the Europe but Erdogan is impulsive and unpredictable and so the best way we could reduce that possibility would be to support Bashar Al Assad’s government and stop supporting terrorism. Stability for other countries would improve everyone’s lives but May will continue down the same path that we are going down now.

The wealthy are unaffected by increased immigration.

Think about it: How does uncontrolled immigration affect the wealthy? It doesn’t, apart from it maintains low wages because more people are after fewer jobs. So far as society struggling to come to terms with immigration, all of our infrastructure is put under extreme pressure. The leafy country mansions with increased private security are unaffected by pressure on inner cities. Worst case scenario for the rich is that they have to move to another part of the world.

The best immigration policy.

… Would be to dramatically alter foreign policy. Despite what the politicians tell us, we do support tyrants and dictators, as long as they comply with our wishes. Whilst they keep a tight lid on opposition aspirations, ‘our’ corporations destroy their potential economies by effectively stealing their resources. Continuing to inhibit economical success for the inhabitants, it increases their desire to quit their country for the apparently ‘successful’ West. Emigration is driven by poverty and hardship and ‘we’ are allowing that to continue because of our own corrupt practices. Military force is never used for ‘UK security’, it is used to protect UK companies while they ransack other countries valuables. Corbyn is acutely aware that the UK (and the US) foreign policy is a major reason for refugees but the mainstream media won’t tell you that.

Even if Corbyn did get elected……

… It wouldn’t mean a new horizon for British foreign policy where we would suddenly become world leaders. We only have to look at Donald Trumps words in his election campaign to realise that he’s either a prolific liar or he’s been told, in no uncertain terms, to tow the line. Corbyn is not a liar. He’s a decent human being with a strong perception of what is wrong and right. Unfortunately (or not), he doesn’t have a strong, likeable personality. He seems uncomfortable being the Labour Party leader and is not a particularly strong public speaker. Having said that, he’s not trying to entertain us, he’s trying to do the right thing, in a way that’s fair to everyone.

Research issues on the internet, don’t rely on newspapers and TV.

The Conservative Party have long been a deception. The Labour government under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown was too. Jeremy Corbyn is the Labour leader because he couldn’t bear to see the party being ruled by another ‘Tony Blair’. Corbyn quickly discovered that Hilary Benn was a snake when he made a speech encouraging attacks on Syria. He got rid of him. Corbyn is a principled man. He won’t attack and kill people from other countries and that’s why I will vote for him.
