Libiamo!

By Mike Cunningham On October 21st, 2014 at 11:29 am

What I cannot figure is what a Muslim woman, veiled or not, is doing sitting in an audience watching and listening to an Opera whose story-line is that of a young man’s infatuation for a prostitute, that same prostitute’s high-living, the intrusion of the lover’s father into the affair; and the acceptance by the prostitute of the father’s heartfelt plea that she breaks with the young man, dying though she may be, and head off back to the sinful life of Paris, and away from the young man’s cash!

I agree that the draw is the superb music, and the wonderul singing, but surely a good Muslim woman should shun these terrible signs of depraved Western life, and get back to her kitchen, and her fifteen jihadi-in-training children; and once more be totally subservient to her husband; while he gets to do exactly what he wishes!

 

The truth of the real ‘Health & Safety’ Regulations.

By Mike Cunningham On October 5th, 2014 at 5:19 pm

 

When I was first exposed to real danger, when working in an environment where your life was seriously at risk if you did not obey the rules; most of which were not written down, but learnt, off by heart, from real people who knew of those dangers by learning them from their predecessors: you learned the rules fast. At the age of 21, I was placed in charge of equipment worth millions, and more importantly, of people’s lives who used that equipment, when on board British Merchant Ships. If the Safety devices protecting an alternator, an engine, or a winch, were not tested and found satisfactory, someone could die, or be badly injured, and that death or injury would be placed at your feet, and you would be asked the reasons. When my friend the radio operator wished to have me check out the rotating radar aerial, I made damn certain that the control and power fuses for the rotating aerial were locked away until I came down from the forty-foot-high mast, so that no clown was able to switch the damn thing on, and send the aerial slicing into my back.

Similarly, when I was running the installation and engineering of a huge and complex electrical system for a South African hospital, it was my ‘Safety Document’ which was the rule for all switching and cabling connections and changes. Everything was written down, and everyone signed, so that, again, everyone was aware that eleven thousand volts; a truly lethal voltage; would not be even close to a human being, when work was underway.  We were professionals, doing a dangerous job, and ‘Health & Safety’ was paramount.

Health & Safety was always high in our minds when working in the English water industry, because each rule, each prohibition or passage, had been generated and established by professionals, for professionals. Two men died, over a weekend, in the tunnel feeding the huge, deep pumping station I was in charge of, when they failed to obey the rules. The 3 metre-dia. tunnel planned and built to carry water for London, ended in a large metal chamber, where the pump inlets would push the water up into the domestic zones of Northern London; and this chamber had been sealed for three months. The rules stated that, if a sealed chamber was breached or opened, the first item was to drop a gas detector, on the end of a rope, into the newly-opened space, to check if the atmosphere was stable, or if any noxious gases or major changes, hazardous to humans had occurred. Plain, straight forward; common-sense! But our two heroes knew so much better than scores of highly-experienced and qualified engineers; so they simply climbed down into the chamber and tunnel: and there they died, as there was less than two-percent oxygen in the tunnel and chamber, as the atmosphere had simply been denatured, nitrogen had displaced all the breathable air, and they died from a bad attack of ‘stupidity’!

Terry Waite, the enormously self-important Anglican envoy who flew to Beirut because he just ‘knew’ that his contacts in Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad and the ordinary Beirut Arabic slime underground could be implicitly trusted. He has been assured that all was ‘safe’! So he climbed on to a pick-up truck crammed with armed terrorists, again trusting them all because they were all muslim, and therefore completely ‘trustworthy’: and promptly disappeared for five years. Tied to radiators, hidden in underground cells, his only contact was another hostage; until he was released after a huge ransom was paid. ‘Trustworthy’ is as trustworthy does.

FCO 312 - Nigeria Travel Advice Ed2 [WEB]Similarly, ‘humanitarian volunteer’ Alan Hemming was travelling in an ‘Aid convoy’ into the darkest place on this Earth, war-torn Syria, because he ‘wanted to help’; ‘wanted to make a difference’, and all the other bullshit phrases used to attempt to excuse the actions of a man who just ‘knew’ that he would be safe, ‘knew’ that he would compete his mission; ‘knew’ that everyone else was wrong, and he alone was ‘right’: going into a muslim maelstrom where no-one is or can be trusted, because, in the end, they all hate us, they call us ‘infidel’, they call us ‘kuffar’.

And now his bereaved family has the audacity to state that the British government should and could have done more to rescue this idiot, should have risked the lives of soldiers, because the family felt that, as a ‘volunteer’, he should have been given special treatment; despite his ignoring every knowledgeable Government Department stating the bleedingly obvious, that Syria was a no-go place, that Europeans, no matter how well-meaning, no matter how well-intentioned; simply should not be there, because their lives would be at risk the second they drove across the border.

I say, save the ink, don’t sign the books of condolence, don’t buy the silly bunches of flowers, don’t condemn the Government for its immobility; instead accept that Alan Hemming was a well-meaning but foolish man, who ignored the warnings of the real Health & Safety Brigade; who gambled with his life and placed his belief on black, but watched the wheel of life’s spin land on blood red instead!

A Letter to an M.P.

By Mike Cunningham On September 25th, 2014 at 12:39 pm

The following is the contents of an e-mail letter sent this morning to my own MP, Roberta Blackman-Woods, a Shadow Minister in the Labour Party:-

Thursday 25 September 2014

Dear Roberta Blackman-Woods,

I write in connection with the forthcoming proposal of the Prime
Minister, scheduled for debate in the Commons on Friday, to allow him
to add the R.A.F.’s bombers, equipment and personnel to join the action
against Islamic State’s operations in Iraq. I realise that you, as a
Shadow Minister, have undertaken to act in a concerted fashion with
most of your Party Colleagues, and to vote as required, again in
concert with your Party; but I am writing to ask you to consider what
you are being both asked and required to vote upon. It is just about a
year since the scheduled vote, put forward by the Prime Minister, where
Parliament was asked to authorise attacks on the Syrian Regime as they
had allegedly deployed chemical weaponry; and of course, due in a large
part to the considered thoughts and votes of the Labour Party, that
vote was defeated.

You are now being asked to vote, once more, upon this issue, but this
time to act, in concert with a ‘coalition’, in degrading and destroying
the infrastructure of the people who fight under the black flag of
Islamic State. You are being asked to authorise a Western element which
will actively intrude into a religious and civil war in the Middle
East. You, as a Member of Parliament, are being asked to authorise
exactly what was sought just a year ago, but this time, you are being
asked to have our Forces fight in only one part of the conflict area,
namely Iraq, against a Force which is, itself, fighting against the
very people, namely the Syrian Government, you were asked previously to
bomb and attack.

It is not often that I find myself nodding in perfect agreement with a
Guardian writer and journalist, but what Simon Jenkins said when
interviewed on the BBC was perfectly correct; air strikes alone do not
work; you have to defeat an army with another army, and if the Iraqi
Army cannot fight, with all the weaponry at their disposal, maybe it is
about time the Arabs realised they have got to sort out their own
problems. We should not get involved with a religious dispute in
Islamic countries; if the West needs a memory jog, just check out what
happened in Libya. Maybe Gaddafi was a very bad man, but just look at
what that unhappy and terror-torn nation has inherited after we, the
French, the British and the Americans ruled the skies above Tripoli and
allowed the opposition to steamroller the old regime into the ground!

We should not be in that theatre of war; we should not even be thinking
about it. Please use the information available to you, so that you
might advise your colleagues, many of whom still remember what the end
result of our last adventures in Iraq and Afghanistan actually turned
out to be, and then vote down any idea that British jets should once
again strike at the behest of a Prime Minister who might sound as
though he knows what is going to happen, but has not yet considered the
long-term results, which may well turn to be even more disastrous than
the previous follies pursued by your own predecessors!

Yours sincerely,

Mike Cunningham

I would urge all British ATW readers to contact their own MPs, by means of
‘Write to Them’, or by any other means available, because Parliament needs to be aware of the perils of sleep-walking into a disaster area!

 

Not one bullet; not one bomb!

By Mike Cunningham On September 15th, 2014 at 9:54 am

We are informed that the UK Government are actively considering direct air strikes, and even infantry action, against the Muslim terrorists  of Islamic State. We are told that, partly because of the murders of two Americans, and now two British hostages, military coalitions are being formed to fight and to destroy Islamic State. Now as to the motives, stated or otherwise, of the politicians who are pushing or discussing this bombing campaign, we are only informed that such matters are ‘under consideration’. Whether the UK Government would like to be involved, despite all the ‘hawkish’ war-talk about the ‘evil’ men who killed in the name of their religion, is one question. Whether Parliament, who fortunately enough now holds the ultimate power to send our Armed Forces to war or not, will assent to yet another Arabic adventure which has the capacity to turn into Libya (squared) is yet another question.

But we shall leave the geo-politics to one side, and concentrate on the two British individuals for whom, if we surmise correctly, this nation is preparing to go to war. First we hear of Mr. Haines as a man who was ‘helping resolve conflict’ in Croatia, and then in Africa, Libya and the Middle-east. We are also told that he was an independent ‘consultant’ working with a French NGO. We are also told that he worked for a civilian outfit named Non-violent Peaceforce in the Sudan, before leaving for ‘greater freedom’ in yet another job. Now, if we ‘read between the lines’ as it were, he comes across as an idealistic fool of the first calibre, always wanting to ‘help others’ where there was suffering; but a slightly more cynical mind might even find him heading out in a series of ever-more well-paid positions, and ‘helping himself’ more that the people he was supposedly protecting or helping. Then we hear of the second hostage, who travelled out in a ‘mercy convoy’ to Syria because he ‘wanted to help’, and hope was expressed that he would be freed because he was a volunteer. How daft can you actually get? Just examine, if you would, the track record of the fools who ‘help’. Have they succeeded in Libya, or Sudan, or Syria, or  Afghanistan, or Iraq? Of course they haven’t; but they keep on going out, because they just ‘know’ that they will succeed, because they ‘know best’!

As I have maybe stated before, how is it that these clowns, and I do consider them all as true clowns, think that they know better by going against all sane advice into the most dangerous territories on this Earth? Just remember that the Islamic State bunch are, first and foremost, fundamentalist Muslim, and therefore enemies of all that is Western. They hate us because we have free speech, they hate us because we believe in the rules of Law, and they hate us because we are not Muslim. So why do these lunatics, idealistic or otherwise, think that they know better than people who have lived with these problems for a very long time? Ignore the newspapers, ignore the television commentators and pundits; concentrate on reality.

 

Was he just a ‘fruit-and-nutcase': or

By Mike Cunningham On September 6th, 2014 at 9:14 am

was he a Muslim fruit-and-nutcase; or was he just a Muslim being a Muslim, acting to Muslim traditional behaviour.?

Freda Odame, 30, a supermarket worker who lives a few doors from the house where the woman was found beheaded, said she looked out of her window and saw the man wielding a machete with a “crazed look” in his eyes.

She said: “He was waving a huge machete around like a madman. He was shouting stuff. It didn’t make sense, it was like he was speaking in tongues.

“His eyes had a fury in them, lots of anger and hate. He was shouting and screaming, thrashing around.

Discuss!

 

My opinion, they are just plain stupid!

By Mike Cunningham On August 22nd, 2014 at 10:45 am

When I hear the calls for retribution for the murder of a photographer in Iraq/Syria, when I read of the ‘hostages’ held by this group of psychopaths calling themselves ‘Islamic State’, I am certain of only one thing; these people, the hostages, the murdered man, they all brought their fate upon themselves.

Whatever their reasons, which range from ““Can you change your daughter, who has these values and has strong ideals about solidarity and human empathy?” or “I go to help the sick and injured” or “I report upon disaster” or any other of the silly and self-serving reasons which placed them in grave danger; they simply cannot state thet they were not warned. For whatever reason, they all went into the deadliest place, at least for Westerners, and they all got caught, or abducted or whatever. It serves them right for thinking that they knew better than anyone.

I am reminded of Alan Johnston, the ‘reporter’ and firm friend of all things Palestinian, who was kidnapped by those same Pallies, and only released because they were afraid he might actually bore them to death with his voice.

It is all very well saying ‘These actions, by these murderous men, are against civilised behaviour’, when everyone accepts that most of these terrorists, and probably all of their supporters, don’t accept Western values or behaviour at all. They think us decadent, they think us immoral, they think us foolish. So why even bother to help, when the helpers will no doubt be treated the same as they do to their other enemies and captives.

It is all very well for Lord Dannatt, he of the smart uniform and totally-closed mind, to state that British soldiers should go and fight in that sandy shit-hole; but I notice that he wasn’t volunteering his services.

As I stated before, they brought their fate upon themselves, and not a single bullet, nor a gallon of fuel, nor a drop of blood should be spilled by America or the United Kingdom to rescue the fools who knowingly went into Bedlam!

 

Not only ‘shocked’, but ‘Appalled’!

By Mike Cunningham On July 30th, 2014 at 12:37 pm

Seems as though HSBC, the giant banking and financial group, has at last got its firepower together and closed FOUR accounts held either by Muslim ‘Charities’ or Muslim individuals.

Jeremy Corbin, the local MP for Finsbury Park, pronounced himself  shocked and appalled at the decision of HSBC

“Over the past 10 years, it has developed into a superb example of a community mosque supporting local people and providing facilities for all faiths if they need it.

 

 

Come on, HSBC, couldn’t you at least make it FIVE?

 

and break the glass, so the flames may spread!

By Mike Cunningham On May 18th, 2014 at 4:28 pm

If there had been a fire-bomb attack on a school bus full of sixth-graders from a Catholic or Church of England school  in Barnsley, or Bruges, or Boston, or Bain-de-Bretagne, the headlines would have jumped off the pages of both the British and Amnerican broadsheets  and red-top tabloids alike. If four muslim fanatics had attempted to kill, in the most savage manner possible, that same busload of young women near any of those four towns or cities; the newsrooms of the BBC, of Sky and ITV, the very news websites of our nations would have crashed under the weight of interest in the abortive attack; on whether the perpetrators had been caught, or executed if caught in France (the old idea of ‘an eye for an eye’ being quite prevalent in La Republique these days). As when four murderous Muslim ‘shaheed’ fanatics threw London into paralysis just a few years ago, the tumult would have been truly deafening.

So I am indeed forced to wonder, to speculate why such an attack, which really did take place when a bus full of Jewish schoolgirls, on a trip to the site of Rachael’s tomb was the target of four terrorists when they attacked the bus with firebombs; why this deadly attack was not even mentioned on page 47 of the Guardian, or even further back in the Times, or the Telegraph, or the New York Times or the Washington Post? I mean to say, news from Israel is often promoted to the front page for lesser stories, such as Jewish teenagers spray-painting or tagging the sides of a building, or Palestinian homes being demolished.

But a bus-load of Jewish girls attacked with firebombs? Not a word; not a link; not a single paragraph: except in the pages of Arutz Sheva. Was it because the bus was literally armoured against such an attack, and so when the driver accelerated away, the murderous flames claimed not a single victim? Was it because the Israelis know their enemies just too well, and plan for such an attack to be repelled and escape all too easy? Or was it simply because the heroines were just that, young Jewish women who had escaped from a deadly attack because of good planning and expensive but necessary protection and armour against an enemy which knows no limits of debauchery in the depths of their hatred for both Israelis, and the very State of Israel?

 

The extra ten fingers ? Just don’t worry, its normal.

By Mike Cunningham On March 17th, 2014 at 11:34 am

Members of a so-called broad-based Muslim bunch named Conservative Muslim Forum are said to be urging members of their ‘community’, otherwise know as the local Muslim rabble, to avoid marrying cousins, as this practice is known for producing children with birth defects; which of course is the usual generalisation which translates to ‘if you marry a first or second cousin, your kids will be either mad, bad, or both’.

Strangely enough, I am all in favour of this disgusting practice, but only for members of this religion, which is in fact almost incest by another name. I am totally in favour because the sooner this ill- and in-bred bunch reach the tipping point where they will no longer survive, and hence die out, the better.

Hell’s gates, I would go so far as to make it mandatory that they only marry their brothers of sisters, so that the whole bunch could be set on the road to extinction a great deal faster than by normal evolutionary methods, and as all muslims reject the whole theory of evolution anyway, so much the better.

Of course it could all be just a sinister plot to ensure that they win lots more medals at the paralympics, but somehow; I dunno’ about that.

 

Forgive? You must be joking!

By Mike Cunningham On January 4th, 2014 at 10:11 am

I listened yesterday to the widow of Alan Greaves, murdered in a truly random act of savagery just a year ago, as she told how she had forgiven the killers of her husband, as it was the Christian thing to do.

This morning, I heard two more confessions surrounding the idea of ‘forgiveness’, one woman was the mother of a daughter murdered in the July bombings in London, ands the other was the daughter of one of the Brighton bomb atrocity’s victims. One stated that she could forgive her daughter’s killer, the other stated that whilst she had not forgiven the bomber, she had actually become friends with the man who had casually slaughtered her father. This was all told, and of course received by the presenter, as just the way things should be; lions lying down with lambs etc., and all the rest of the total tosh spewed by the fraternity which populates the BBC studios, and certain parts of our political structure.

If I was ever placed in a situation where someone close to me had been the victim of a murderous attack, politically inspired or not, I would be striving to have the privilege of tearing the very heart out of the killer’s body. I would also attempt to cremate his sorry remains and scatter them to the wind, burn his home and possessions; and obliterate his very memory.

But hey, thats just me! Christian values? There wasn’t much Christianity around when Patrick Magee planted his long-delay bomb, nor when those murderous ‘British’ killers got on the train heading towards London; nor when those two men chose Alan Greaves as a target a year ago. Hang them all, and then burn their remains; and leave nothing for the followers to admire or remember!
