Up He Pops Now His Cosy World Is Threatened From Another Front.
"Our security depends on strengthening the Pakistan and Afghan governments to defeat both al-Qaeda and also the Pakistan and Afghan Taliban." Said Mr Brown.
I absolutely disagree with Jim's statement there. Our security depends on our having strong borders and very strict immigration controls. Has he ever toured Sparkbrook, in Birmingham. Half the population are Taliban. As for strengthening The Afghan and Pakistan Governments. How many years is that going to take before we are forced to surrender the notion that this is possible?
Al Queda and The Islamists attacked The Twin Towers in order to destabilise our economies. It's working as they bleed us dry financially, morally and with the blood of our soldiers. I seethe enough about Labour's deluded Government of idiots but this takes first place in their abject and disgraceful lack of sense or decency. Remember John Reid as we set off to this benighted hell hole?
Dr Reid, famously boasted in 2006 that he expected British forces being sent into Helmand would leave again ‘without a shot being fired’
He's now trousering thousands a year as a consultant to a security firm operating in Iraq and Afghanistan. So while our troops suffer for lack of the right equipment and air support this ex-hoon of a Defense Minister profits. Shameless and useless. Just like his erstwhile boss and their ilk.
