To praise the heartless sociopaths who rise to the top of a political system built on corruption and the needs of its paymasters may not be the way to go popularity wise. It may even seem hypocritical to people who like narrative which usually involves Obama/Brown/Cameron are decent guys who accidentally do horrible things they believed in or are devils incarnate. The truth is rather more nuanced and twisted. Personally I really don’t care how accidentally genocidal these folks are. After all they have the intelligence to step beyond and see what is happening and at some level choose not to.

Nonetheless the recent peace accords with Cuba and Iran are a huge step forward. Others can argue engagement with China and even the USSR started to bring down walls metaphorically and literally. It does not need people to be wholly good or evil to do this. It does not need the motives to be right or wrong. Indeed since killing loads of people or starving them to death is never a good idea just people looking for what will most benefit everyone would be nice. Continue reading »

On the one hand we have vile murderers who die for a cause so base and ridiculous at the same time it defies sane analysis. On the other the lives of a bit more than a dozen westerners are placed above the continuing butchery the Islamic nuts perpetrate in the Middle East many in their own country among their neighbours.

UK/US seek to censor and create a surveillance state of good manners yet will not ring up the Saudis and tell them to stop distributing and  funding the ‘intellectual’ underpinning of this nihilistic Terrorism. Indeed the UK Govt is likely to ring up the sponsors of the Paris massacre and try to sell them arms. 2 years ago he, accepted only taking orders from his organ grinder in Washington, UK Govt begged Parliament to bomb Assad in support of his enemies which turned out to be Islamic State and al Queada – the US did claim to bomb a group that did not exist “The Khorasan Group” one assumes to obfuscate this fact. Indeed Israel to no odium bombed the Assad regime the other week to show that all this posturing and pretense that we think these groups the worst of the worst is poppycock.

One can argue the West stoked conflict in Syria and is prolonging it at the expense of 10,000s of lives with no improvement in liberty and freedom likely whichever side won – see Libya. What is the moral difference then between our leaders and the rancid scum who shoot cartoonists? That they do their killing in person not with indiscriminate drone attacks? No, as their attacks are not based on anything either and are purposefully done to no end bar fear and publicity. When you kill people over cartoons and their religion you’re no better than the Obama Administration killing someone because his meta data crops up in the wrong place.

I’d support action to tackle these terrorists wholeheartedly and am left to wonder why the UK/US seems intent on fighting people who want to cut fossil fuel usage instead.

It is beyond annoying the continual polls of what supposedly white and black people feel about the deaths of poor Americans at the hands of the Police in the USA.

Regardless of anything else and accepting it proves nothing but the below is astounding slaughter  – not the same as calling cops murderers. It is surely ridiculous that people who had pen knives even are gunned down in seconds by police. Or that unarmed people are ever gunned down.  The thing most of these victims had in common was their poorness.

Conrad Hackett
Deaths from police shootings US 458 (low estimate) Germany 8 Britain 0 Japan 0

My point is that the approach of screaming racism does not work. It may well be a factor but we cannot change what is going through people’s heads or know it. Those who claim to lead communities and pimp the race angle are serving themselves or at best misguided. They also separate people from their fellow poor and offer a problem which in reality has no solution – changing hearts and minds.

Less aggressive policing, an end to continual fining for pavement blocking or jaywalking and better trained and mentally stable police can be made into a coherent demand. Screaming someone is racist or a group is racist what is the solution?

Washington [State] elects Socialists and the employees of Starbucks are known as Partners (being wiped out in Australia where they already had great coffee and did not need the House Bland thank you very much). The home state of Boeing, Cisco, Microsoft, Google, Apple et al like Sweden projects a rosy glow the utter opposite of the reality of what they stand for. So Seattle will have a $15 min hourly wage, Indian born Socialist councillor and rosy glow whilst the Chinese slaves produce the goods. Hypocrisy is great man and you can now roll a blunt to celebrate your freedom there too as misery is heaped on poor third world farmers growing the good Shit.

Reveling in our own freedoms even as Google and others actively seek to undermine them is the Western hypocrisy. To pretend drones are any kind of legal device or foreigners growing drugs for money are doing anything wrong because of what we fear our own people will do is hypocrisy.

Labour MPs and others were claiming they were not making the same mistake at 2003 in supporting bombing designed to boost Islamic State’s standing, sorry.. stopping IS from ummh doing something being a threat to the region somehow bombing London or was it Paris or New York or whatever they’re evil, fuck it move on.

This was Fuck Yeah not Shock and Awe. This is Cameron showing despite being an Etonian and an Oxbridge 1st he can just say ‘what the fuck’. Strategy schmategy, tactics what the fuck are they, you wants goals you can’t handle goals. Think Bush and Blair were a couple of clowns we’re funnier and better dressed. Ed Miliband talked of helping a democracy after their unelected President, self appointed after a quiet coup, asked for help. Ed’s in with equals with Cameron and Obama.

Yet 2003 was planned. Sure Rumsfeld threw the post invasion plan in the bin. However unlike here where the people involved are doing it to placate the weapons industry and help the Democratic party in the mid terms. Yet there is no aim here other than the most nebulous. Bush and co for reasons that may seem laughable in reality wanted to build a stable Arab democracy and control a shit load of oil. The Obama Administration and Cameron Govt are doing this because? Find one regional expert who expects bombs to achieve Bo Diddley. They talk of a 3 year war but there is no plan. It’s a case of bomb and play it by ear no strategy no goal no endgame no thought.

Make no mistake if Bush was stupid Obama, Miliband and Cameron are dumber and clearly so. If he was nefarious then they are more nefarious and clearly so.

The US produced an impressive array of nations to back its bombing of Islamic State – indeed like the US and UK many seemingly unproud fathers of the child they created. It seems unlikely these allies dropped a single bomb but hey they had a female pilot. Apparently we bombed an Islamic State Command and Control Centre – seriously what was it? A tent with command and control written on it?

I’m sorry but as Rouhani rightly points out why does the West think it has the answers now? Why does it wage war without consulting on the ground? You don’t need to be Einstein to know that repeating behaviour and expecting different results is insane.

If we suffer terrorism it will likely be from home growners who’ve been radicalised by Western interference in the middle east. They would have claimed to be al Quaeda once now they fly the flag of Islamic State but they are not a function of the latest insane murderers we have created for tactical advantage and strategic stupidity in the world.

To celebrate a 100 years since the last one we have a war to end all wars apparently! Yes the Septics have their mid terms and you should be in fear. You’re a bad person if you’re not. Vote Democratic or the puppy gets it.

I was asked about Cameron the other week and I responded he probably was not a bad person. Indeed some of his more blood thirsty colleagues like Miliband or Balls or Osborne or Obama probably in most other circumstances would not be drenched in masses of metaphorical blood. It’s just easier for some to hate ‘The Tories’ even as the poffer the same solutions as the Lab rats who condemn them in the hope no one will notice they’re One – U2’s standard should be Labour’s election song this time “We’re One But We’re Not The Same” albeit it won’t be easier on people without the Tories to blame.

However regardless of what these people say and what they say to themselves and excuses they make for themselves it really does not matter how nice or good they are. You do evil shit you’re an evil shit. As someone who reads the tweets of the World Economic Forum you realise that as they print money and reduce wages no one expresses the motivation to subjugate the Western Poor and monetize society so they can get richer. Maybe some of these clowns think they are doing some good. Some may even suffer in their gated houses hours of anxiety at the poor ranging from Pity to Fear of the poor.

It’s against this background that the GQ awards made the mass killer Tony Blair Philanthropist of the Year. Even if true again whilst he personally might support charities and be nice to puppies the debit side of his balance is ‘unpaybackable’. I thought maybe he could have offered to swap places with one of Islamic State’s hostages which would pay back maybe half a percent about a Billion times more than he has so far.

In the end at least with Hillary Clinton, Putin, Cheney, Merkel, Sauds, Netanyahu etc  there is less pretense or self deception these people are greedy authoritarian scum and barely deny it. They don’t need rhetoric or reason or expensive suits for what they do. That is why I dislike the former lot more.

The Saudi inspired ideology of Islamic State is both barbaric and monstrous. Yes the US has finally created the enemy Osama bin Laden said they would. The US has removed all its bases from Saudi and Osama is a martyr and wins hands down.  His mouse blanked the US Elephant. Trillions of dollars, thousands of lives and all it can do is send drones to murder and terrorise people who are no threat to it for ratings and to claim something is being done.

Obama Administration chief spokesperson’s rhetoric still aimed only inwards as though it believes the CNN/FOX world view! Talk of revenge and other sad little ploys to sound relevant. Maybe the colour of the spokesperson’s suit is all that this weak and lame duck Presidency has left worthy of discussion? The Adminsitration has set new records in crushing the powerless at home and abroad. Police wander the streets in body army with automatic weapons paid by fines on the poor they oppress. Bored kids who joined for the benefits decide whether to kill someone with their drone – this’ll make your wedding go with a bang Mr Foreigner. Journalists only lauded when Islamic State kills them otherwise subject to threats and bullying from the impotent on anything important Administration. No fly lists just to be nasty to US Muslims and for no other reason. Force feeding added to the demented torture of Guantanamo. They suppress their own report that says US torture proved utterly ineffective.

Obama will die a rich man. Osama died the winner.

It’s not to boil down something as tragic as the Israel death squadrons on Gaza  and the rockets fired back to a Monty Python sketch. It’s not intended to be a comedic. The small minority used to willfully stigmatise and allow the mass murder and destruction of a racial community is as old as humanity and there is no comedy in it.

The firing of rockets which have killed Israelis is ineffective and indeed given the way it will be covered Palestinians maybe should be grateful not to have more effective counter strikes. This kind of resistance is self defeating and feeds the rhetoric of weak venal men like Netanyahu and his ilk. It is a symbiotic relationship where Hamas get what they want martyrs and a captive population with nowhere else to turn. Fatah money and power over a trapped people and Israel gets to carry on stealing land and getting the unending stream of freshly printed dollars. The EU and others who pathetically give aid and build infrastructure for Israel to blow up each year should probably just stop or be accused of corruption for wasting aid.

The biggest threat to Israel is the world’s tolerance of US money printing. This is the reality not talk of martyrs and retribution or pleading to a press so corrupt in the West you get more truth in Haaretz than the BBC would allow. Point being whilst most westerners invested in this conflict are no fans of Israel appealing to our media is less effective than you think as this BBC snippet shows. Sure it says Israel killed someone but that he has a nice label.

Three Israelis have been killed by rocket-fire from Gaza, where 13 Palestinians have died in Israeli air strikes since it killed a Hamas chief on..

Or as The Clash chimed no doubt with the paid for by a regressive unfair tax BBC in mind

London calling, now don’t look to us
Phony Beatlemania has bitten the dust

Memo to Palestinians looking to the BBC MSNBC etc 1 Jewish death is a tragedy with a name and face, 100s in rubble statistics. Sanctimonious lefties offering pity is not helping nor are rocket firing Berks. Nonetheless Israel’s agenda here is nothing to do with the criminal actions of some racist murderers which did not even happen in Gaza. To victimise 100s 1000s for the actions of a few is murder but don’t expect the news to tell us that – after  all the UK media treats someone who listens to phone messages as a pariah and the politicians who sanction war, torture, rendition and paedophiles as respectable.

Policy and response needs to be intelligent not fixations on martyrs whose claim to martyrdom is they got killed by bombs or as the BBC would say died peacefully at home from bombs exploding.

Americans have jobs making weapons is that it? Cos nothing else makes sense anymore.

Giving half a billion to re-stoke the Syrian contest that is all but won by the other side is merely a gesture of inhumanity the impotent grunt of an increasingly weak President. It is using the Syrian people as statistics. It’s support to groups known to have used the chemical weapons that was the supposed red line of the President about the other lot. The US will now spend Billions fighting even if by proxy the same forces it is arming in Syria in Iraq. No one with a hold on reality could claim that ‘enemy’ ISIS forces (numbering only a few 1000) won’t get hold of the weapons. That is such a poor position it’s probably handy for the Administration that John Kerry a man for whom the sobriquet ‘useful idiot’ would appear polite understatement is there to state policy with a straight face.

We have to face the fact for all our pinsticking in Bush effigies Bush had a doctrine – dumb as it may seem to us. This Administration has no doctrine or ethos or humanity or intelligence.
