First Iraq Then Afghanistan?

The World Is In A Mess.








"Almost intentionally hidden in these statistics is one shocking fact about urban Iraqi populations. For the past few decades, prior to the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, the percentage of the urban population living in slums in Iraq hovered just below 20 percent. Today, that percentage has risen to 53 percent: 11 million of the 19 million total urban dwellers. In the past decade, most countries have made progress toward reducing slum dwellers. But Iraq has gone rapidly and dangerously in the opposite direction.". http://globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=20742 


As The American main forces tip toe from Iraq, the Bilderberger propaganda machine chooses to also move very quietly away from a deep debate on what an unholy mess they have created. Not only in Iraq but also Afghanistan. Trust me, The Taliban will not be so hushed, when eventually they resume power. The upshot of this latest, living history, is that the human capacity for screwing up is incalculable and our ability to learn from history as pathetic as those who grapple their way into power. So Saddam was a bastard, The Taliban dreadful. Would any of this matter if money was not to be made from interfering and being hypocritically judgmental. War against terror has cost we mere mortals our hard won economies. Economies constantly screwed by the unimaginable greed of just a relatively small number of families and political dynasties. However history teaches us that all empires eventually fail. Where capitalism took large numbers of people with them it delayed its downfall. Then, as the empire builders, drawn from bankers, despots and downright  useless and corrupt politicians, gained control and lost the need to assuage criticism, it began to crumble. Be it The Middle or The Far East that finishes the job, Western Capitalism is waning. Not helped by pissing money up the wall of warmongering for nefarious ends, disguised as altruism. Meddling was always a white man's weakness and boy, are we seeing it at its zenith.

Looking back to those hectic days at the end of 2010 it seems amazing now that anyone considered that Millipede the Elder was ever really likely to lead the Labour party. Once Ed Millipede released those photographs it was inevitable that his elder brother would retire from public life, and, of course, when it transpired that Ed himself had been having an affair with Harriet Harperson, the writing was on the wall for the brothers Milliband. As we now know, Ed Balls had to retire from the leadership contest for medical reasons and we have been assured recently by medical staff at Manchester Royal Infirmary that the recent final operation to remove various pieces of domestic ironmongery from his rectal passage has been successful. Ms Cooper continues to assist the police with their enquiries.
In the polarised contest that followed between Burnham and Flabbot, the collective votes of the unions were instrumental in ensuring the success of the first black woman leader of the Labour party.

Anyone who imagined that the Coalition government would be able to capitalise on the Labour party’s upheavals were, of course, sadly mistaken. When Vince Cable was exposed as the principal instigator of the now infamous “Night of the Queens”, few expected that Nick Clegg would be able to survive as leader of the LibDems. And, with the added impetus of Simon Hughes’ exposure last Christmas, the coalition began to implode.

David Cameron’s decision to go for a snap election last May proved one step too many for the electorate and the landslide victory for Flabbot ushered in a new era of Socialism.

In a statement to the media the new leader of the Conservatives, Sir David Davis, said that enough was enough. He would be pressing for the immediate withdrawal of Great Britain from the EUSSR, the impeachment of Tony Blair for war crimes in the middle east and the arrest of Gordon Brown for the destruction of the British economy (and for wearing a scruffy suit in a built up area). YouTube footage of Mr. Davis felling Lord Prescott with a single slap on the steps of Westminster recently passed the 8 million mark.

The Prime Minister Ms Flabbot last night pledged that Caribbean food would be compulsory for all meals on wheels customers and aaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrgggghhh

Thank you for the kind comments folks - but it's all true, you ask my mate Nobby. He built this time machine thingy you see, and we have a bit of a wizz about in it when bored.

Tell you what, poor Ffion - I was just........what?... OK .... sorry guys, the vintner's just arrived with a fresh load for the cellar. Must dash.

Caratacus, until I read some of your comments, I thought my sense of humour was 'off the wall'. Masterful and you get your message over so well in the process.
