And Sick Of Trying.........
The sheer horror of Afghanistan and the billions and billions wasted are thrown into a brief spotlight as yet more troops are sacrificed to the grasping and immoral greed of the West's arms dealers and their Political, bought out friends in high places. Whatever the issues surrounding how these people live and fight, we have no place being there.
These people have fought for their homelands for centuries. If they made as good a trading partner and friend as they do freedom fighters we would be quids in as allies not occupiers. I appreciate the bleeding hearts of our political establishment over the apparent misogynistic mores and the less than acceptable culture, TO THE WEST, but how that justifies the endless killing on all sides is beyond me.
Even our least able Jeremy Kyle drudges know this is a lost cause. Yet the seemingly finest in the land are clueless. Other than ensuring the abject poverty of our Country, to service the arms dealers, corrupt Afghan Government and feather the chosen ones' nests, we lurch from disaster to disaster.
The petty squabbles and effete posturing in Westminster goes endlessly and pointlessly on, whilst those with real clout and even more despicable attitudes than The Taliban, blithely and smugly continue their undemocratic war from Brussels. A war to enslave a whole Continent. One led by the most uninspiring yet vindictive bureaucrats such as Rompuy and Barosso. two men little realising they are purely puppets in the Merkel grand design.
If anybody really wished to win an election they would get out of Afghanistan and befriend The Taliban. Get out of The EU and befriend the big wide world. Scrap the Trident unnecessary and unaffordable debt and all in all concentrate on making The UK, or a new Tri-Nation British Kingdom, a small but economically viable and proud powerhouse. Don't tell me we it couldn't be done.
Everybody said we couldn't defend our shores in 1940. Of course we had patriots back then. People prepared to sacrifice everything for their country, their beliefs, their grandchildren and their hopes. They had real leaders with the courage to stand down when wrong, admit mistakes and fight tooth and nail to rectify them. Rather like the Taliban when you think about it.
