TORIES EMBRACE SOCIALISM…

By ATWadmin On November 24th, 2006 at 1:04 pm

Interesting to read David Cameron has confirmed that there has been a "big change" in the way the Conservatives think about poverty. In a speech to mark 25 years since the Scarman Report into the Brixton riots, the Tory leader argued poverty is not only "absolute" but "relative". It was not just "material deprivation," but the fact that some people "lacked things others took for granted".

This is the essence of socialism – ENVY! Cameron seeks to embrace the leftist analysis of "poverty" and in doing so once again confirms that his Party is no loner Conservative but drippingly wet liberal. There is no such thing as poverty in this country but by redefining it as "relative" and thus establishing a benchmark that continually adjusts regardless of absolute income/welfare benefits, the Poverty Industry goes from strength to strength….

Feeney Watch – 24.11.06

It’s a while since I tackled the most poisoned pen in insurrectionist politics.  So, for the benefit of our regulars, I’ve decided to take Bigoted Bri to task once more.  His latest submission to the Irish News contains the traditional nonsense (such as it is) that emanates from his mind (such as IT is!).  He begins by describing the notion that the only thing important in ‘Irish’? (British-Ulster) politics in the support of the rule of law by a terrorist organisation.

I have news for him.  It is the only important factor.  Power sharing (as it exists in other parts of the world) commits the parties to respect the integrity of the state.  That’s why it has worked.  The reason it will never work in Ulster is that two, not one, parties committed to the abolition of the UK as we know it demand a free run to do just that; in addition to wanting control of law-enforcement agents to assist them in that endeavour.

‘Ownership’ of a country is determined by two overriding criteria:

  1. The numerical majority of the largest single group therein.
  2. Adherence to the fundamental principles of respect for the predominant cultural and social ethos of the territory.

On the first principle, Unionists have no competition.  They provide one part of the jigsaw that gives the Union constitutional and legal legitimacy.  On the second, Unionism reflects socio-political reality: namely that the territory of what is now Northern Ireland has been part of the United Kingdom for over 200 years, and culturally tied to the British mainland for far longer.  Nationalists have no equivalent.  Ireland has never been a united, independent entity; most of the cultural shibboleths which underpin Irish separatism are based on the falsehood of an ancient Irish nation; the use of those shibboleths is not to create an Irish identity comfortable with the territorial status quo (as is the case with the Irish who reside in Great Britain), it is to progressively destroy and usurp the constitutional, cultural and political expression of the majority British population.  That is why nationalism must never have ‘ownership’ of Northern Ireland until it undertakes a total re-think of its aims and aspirations.

What is particularly ironic about BB and his opinion on the validities of Sinn Fein, is that today convicted killer, Michael Stone, attempted to disrupt the first sitting of the reconsituted farce that is powersharing.  Incidentally, Stone has committed many crimes in his past.  He killed a number of IRA supporters at a funeral and has also done some crimes worth losing sleep over – such as supporting the Belfast Agreement.  Following his shenanigans today, Stormont has been cordoned off and labelled a ‘crime scene’.  The truth is it has been a crime scene since Sinn Fein and the PUP were allowed to sit in its chambers eight years ago.

stormont_alert203.jpgLOL! This one takes the biscuit! The political proceedings at Stormont were disrupted today when a convicted mass murdering terrorist – Michael Stone – attempted to enter the Chamber carrying a bag with him. He was arrested by the Security guards at the main door – getting himself caught in the revolving doors!!!

The purpose of ths discussion taking place in the Chamber was to find a way to allow terrorist apologists to gain political office. The IRONY of this being stopped by ANOTHER terrorist entering the premises is sublime. What a political sewer.

We went into Iraq to rid the world of a brutal dictator.

We went into Iraq to help a subjugated People achieve Democracy

Change the nation’s name to another, but less well-trumpeted, and see what you get!

We went into Iraq Zimbabwe to rid the world of a brutal dictator.

We went into Iraq Zimbabwe to help a subjugated People achieve Democracy

Whgen you read the pages linked here, and here, and here, and here, lastly, here; perhaps you too will be asking why we haven’t done anything other, in governmental terms, than raise a distressed Foreign Office eyebrow, and close the curtains so as to block out the view!

We helped set this bunch of cut-throats up, we set the lottery balls rolling which ended up with friend Mugabe holding the Jackpot, and the citizens of Zimbabwe buying all the tickets! While the British-brokered all-party talks at Lancaster House in London was said to lead to a peace agreement and new constitution, it is not commonly known that the hotel accomodation and rooms provided for the Smith and Muzorewa delegations, along with the sectors of Lancaster House reserved for those two delegations were routinely bugged, and the results of their private negotiations delivered straight to Mugabe’s bunch! I know this, because I talked to the blokes who set the wiring up!

So as we sow, so also should we reap; and this time in a worthy cause! The so-called ‘Commonwealth‘ is useless; M’Beki and South Africa won’t budge, they’re after all intent on doing the same to their citizens as Mugabe has to his own, so it should be us, the self-imposed Keepers of the Flame of Democracy, but we won’t; because we can’t! A down-sized military, struggling to keep to the tasks it’s been given in Iraq, in Afghanistan, in Kosovo and Bosnia; along with a hide-bound Europe-gazing civil service, and a set of politicians who couldn’t collectively pull the skin off a rice pudding, never mind stand up to a really nasty piece of work whom we ourselves created!

Earlier this year there had been high rain fall, causing flooding in the town of Safwan near the Kuwait border. The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards were quickly on the scene to help. The unit supplied boxes of water and the town Mayor helped in the middle of the night to stock the town hall in preparation. The casualty had been pulled from a collapsed building, caused by the heavy rainfall. He is put in the back of a military vehicle and taken to British hospital for treatment.

Operation Herrick IV saw the development of the Helmand Task Force in the province, which saw the cross Governmental Provincial Reconstruction Team set up in Lashkar Gar, to help the Afghan Government build strong governmental institutions, security and create jobs. The Task Force was made up of 3300 troops from the British Military, with the majority being taken from 16 Air Assault Brigade.

There are hundreds of these images.

Smiling Iraqis happy to see the allied forces, talented individuals offering hope and supplying stability and small steps of progress. You never get to see any of them in the press. 

Why? Because it is not the people in these photos that want Iraq to fail or thumb their noses at it. 

No I dont view this through rose tinted spectacles.  Its obvious that there is a tenuous grip on hope. But equally living under a torturous regime was not an option. And it is disingenius to suggest that the regime as it was, would not have continued as it was. Or to think that at any point in its history Iraq would not have struggled to rid itself of that regime. To rid itself of that regime would never ever have been easy or less bloody and violent.  However such as it is, it has a chance at democracy – very much welcomed by its people and a process which should be very much welcomed and supported by all of us. You would think. Undermining it at every opportunity, undermining the efforts of the people there, both struggling Iraqis and committed allied forces assisting them, should not be an option either. Why do we consistently give succour to those people who seek to so murderously wreck this? Why do we help drive them onwards? Are we so wrapped up in our own political agendas that we would consciously will failure?

SUPER GRAN DETONATES….

Remember when Jimmy Carter, America’s worst ever President in living memory, told us to "give Hamas a  chance?" 

Well,  comes the news that Palestinian grandmother has blown herself up in the Gaza Strip, lightly wounding three Israeli soldiers, in the first suicide attack claimed by Hamas in almost two years. The mother of nine and grandmother of 41 became the oldest Palestinian suicide bomber at the age of 57, selecting as her target troops operating near her northern Gaza home in Jabaliya, seeking to curb near-daily rocket attacks on Israel.

Give these people a State? Bet your bottom dollar that this psychotic behaviour will be flannelled away by a Jew-hating media.

judo.jpgA judo coaching session for boys and girls in Kabul, Afghanistan, conducted by a female Flt Lt serving in the RAF. After seeing an article in "The World of Judo" magazine, about the state of judo in Afghanistan, she decided she could help.

A former GB international, a qualified coach and the captain of the RAF ladies judo team she contacted the President of the Afghan Judo Federation, Zakaria Assadi, to ascertain what could be done. The result was a two-day training package in Kabul and the donation of 30 mats from the UK’s Royal Air Force Judo Association and £2,000 worth of judo suits from Fighting Films, a UK-based martial arts equipment supplier.

The Flt Lt is an RAF officer serving with the British detachment at Kandahar in Southern Afghanistan. The British presence leading NATO’s International Security and Assistance Force (ISAF) in the region is tasked with stabilising life south of the capital Kabul as well as regenerating society within Kandahar and neighbouring Helmand Province.

BBC LAMENTS TERRORIST HAS CANCER….

By ATWadmin On November 23rd, 2006 at 6:28 pm

This story on the BBC sickened me. It seems that a "senior negotiator" for the terrorist group the Tamil Tigers, Anton Balasingham, is seriously ill with cancer. The Tamilnet website said that Mr Balasingham has been diagnosed with bile duct cancer. The BBC pays extensive tribute to this stricken terror apologist.

I’m sorry but anyone who has even an inkling of the BRUTALITY of the Tamil Tigers could feel no pity for this man. Only the BBC – that morally bankrupt zone – would feel HIS pain.
