As we survey the reality of a Europe run by rhetoric, bullshit and idiotic grasp of economics. We realise we have a poor hating cretin hive in London one wonders where the fuck are the left? Oh they appear in distressed countries as do the fascists and bottom feeders. Why this void? The answer is they do not have the economics or understand the problems. As said before the neo Lib’ right has run down the disposable wealth/income of most people in Western societies and we have not noticed. ‘Left’ parties like Labour have morphed into a moving peg marginally to ‘the left’ on some issues but covering up for this with an authoritarianism that sees the Obama/Brown Administrations de facto wanting cameras in everyone’s homes [exaggerating for effect].

The neo Lib Left want to protect people for a slower exploitation by the logic-less tenants of neo Liberalism and the neo Lib Right to protect Finance and Corporates from any kind of economic dynamism and proper controls – Zombie economy. In the face of this open goal of ridiculous views the actual Left have nothing to say but cling to Climate Change and other issues and high moral ranting? It’s a mess with no effective opposition we can expect enough people to keep re-electing it. That only requires 25% buy in in the UK and US. Indeed in Greece the greed of older generations and the desire to hang on to the Silver turds means that even a country where it makes no sense clings to its Euros even as they gut their own banking system to hold them.

We can cry for Greece or the poor or realise this is a race to the bottom and our opponents will do anything they can sell with blame rhetoric. Being nice winning arguments and feeling moral will win nothing bar the odd equality victory which costs nothing and achieves only marginally more.

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 »

Egypt, Saudi and the UAE are allies of Israel. Jordan and Israel share a dislike of Palestinians and worries at their population growth. However these channels are all unofficial as the despot led nations commit atrocities Israel might actually get censured for by the USA. They pretend to have some fig leaf of Arab solidarity like the gangsters of E Block objecting to a man who ripped off the elderly but secretly does their tax return. 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.

According to Oxford PPE graduate Theresa May Islamic State present the gravest threat this country has ever faced. Of course May is not up on her history but the sheer stupidity of her comments when cracking down on bad driving would save more lives is noteworthy. However next to Philip Hammond, Cameron, Obama and “the gimp” John Kerry she’s a fucking genius. Their policies of stoking war in Syria and Ukraine backfired. Now they have a carnivorous Russia playing with a Fascist Kiev. In Syria the Assad regime may be about to topple but now they do not want it to so swapped sides. Enter the dragons Israel and Turkey our supposed allies and recently not friendly to each other but both fervent backers of Islamic State against their enemies – Kurds in Turkey’s case and Hezbollah/Iran in Israel’s case.

UK/US policy is now beyond mockery or caricature as its supposed allies piss on it from a great height. To cap it all off the UK Govt is to build a military base in Bahrain so it can support that country’s refusal to democratise, austerity schusterity. Again the sidebar is these people have some of the highest educational qualifications out there and they’re all either morons or unaware of the own ignorance.

It takes a peculiar form of nihilism to think any god wants to spend time around someone who just cut a defenseless man’s head off.

I takes an even more vapid form of nihilism to stand up like Cameron and say we will do everything to revenge this when you know you’ve sent a squad of obsolete Tornado aircraft that were to be scrapped. Tornado ‘craft that can fire 2 missiles at likely only fuzzily be identified if that. Worse to fight an enemy we supported in our proxy war with Russia. The inanity and ego of the US administration is staggering but the UK has been right with it.

Two days 2 schools in Syria were attacked by what one I assume is meant to call Islamic Moderates to separate them from IS. The people the vile Obama Administration wants to give half a Billion to and is supporting by bombing IS.

Alan Henning was a truly inspired human being those who killed him and once supported his killers and now issue platitudes not so.

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.

It’s really lucky that the UK Parliament has Rory Stewart as Head of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee to point out bombing Islamic State is a complete waste of time and resources. He can tell Cameron and Cameron can tell that nice chap Obama and job done. After all Cam’ and O’ laughing and joking and being good fellas to down a few with and can leave serious stuff like thinking to the likes of Stewart. Also Cammy and Oey could just ring our allies Qatar, Saudi and Turkey and tell them to stop fucking helping Islamic State if it actually mattered to them. It really is that simple.

Of course who can blame the Obama Administration the Democratic Party might lose Senate seats and State Houses if it challenged the moronic wisdom of the narrative it has created to drone people for no reason. They can hardly say look we’ve been lying for 6 years and actually the truth is we killed lots of people because of PR.

Then again O’ could just flippantly say “We murdered some Folks”.

It took 2 seconds of seeing men in combat gear aiming machine guns at unarmed civilians and hanging about in Armoured Cars to go WTF about Ferguson Missouri USofA. It seems it took Conservative Rand Paul less time than me. Nancy Pelosi and spokesperson Barack Obama had to wait to be briefed and sprayed a load of bollocks till the polls came in and a meaningful response is awaited.

This is not about Ferguson or the US but the kind of facile creeps leading politicians of supposedly progressive parties have become. These people do not believe in anything but their own ambition. Indeed the string of leading candidates for 2016’s chance to become Demorcratic candidate to be chief spokesperson for the NSA sees them all off to Israel to endorse Netanyahu’s gang something the Administration actually vacillates on to give it faint praise – Coumo, Warren and Clinton.

We sometimes assume Conservatives only hold views to be venal.

No they’re all venal..
