UPDATE 1st Sep 2013: Sir. Christopher Meyer, KCMG. Former British Ambassador to the United States (1997–2003) has written the following article proving the special relationship is as strong as ever Though the return of Sir Winston Churchill’s bronze bust remains an obvious slur by the incumbent President. White House admits it did return Sir Winston Churchill bust to British diplomats after describing such claims as “100 per cent false”. It was Churchill himself who coined the phrase, ‘the special relationship’ in a speech 70 years ago’. “All this for a Damn F
ORIGINAL POST: Having watched events unfold around Syria, one does not require the brains of an Arch-Bishop to understand that the situation does not bode well for Assad, or the West. The whole situation within Syria, as well as the political situation within the Western world is now a rambling mess; mainly in part due to the ineffectiveness of the U.N. U.S. snubs Britain – and gets cosy with the French: After Cameron’s Commons humiliation, Obama prepares to blitz Syria without us Added to this, is the damage created by the lack of trust we have in our politicians caused by Tony B’liar and the previous socialist Labour Government of the UK, who lied to its citizens over Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction, and their delivery capability of 40 minutes. It is my deepest hope that Tony B’liars ‘dodgy dossier’ will see him incarcerated one day, with his spin doctor Alastair Campbell sharing the same prison cell. The same Peace envoy; Tony Blair, ‘happy holiday’ heading for a multi millionaires yacht in the Mediterranean from where he called for an attack on Syria, before the U.N. chemical weapons teams had even gathered evidence. (Trying to cover the sins of his past, by coercing others to act in the same way)… Champagne socialism at its finest!
‘Closing the gate after the horse has bolted’ helps no one, especially the innocents who have suffered through the release of a chemical blood choking agent. Relevant Western political leaders, were given ”hot intel’ by their Joint Intelligence Committee’s, who knew of Assad’s intended use of chemical weapons, having eves-dropped the wires in live time. Politically the information could have been exposed, and used as a tool against Assad and his regime. Figuratively speaking, such information allowed the West to load a gun, make it ready, and place it against Assad’s temple. Any attempt there after to use WMD would see the safety flicked off, the trigger squeezed, with true justification.
It would now appear that within the last 24 hours Assad’s regime has released a blister agent attack, certainly media & news footage strongly suggests so. Not phosphorous, as was described by some stupid news presenter on TV (The injured were covered in severely large painful blisters, as well as suffering from significant skin peel, the main characteristics of a blister agent damage. White phos would still be doing its job, burning its way slowly through skin and muscle to the bone; none of the injured were showing signs of writhing, agonised, screaming torture; the main characteristics of white phos damage).If the U.N. find Assad guilty of using WMD against his own civilians, a strike against the Syrian regime is urgently required. The strike should be swift, calculated, and devastating to the extreme. It should be against military targets such as airfields, aircraft, and weapon delivery systems. The strike should be issued with the caveat that Assad will be personally targeted, should he proceed with further chemical weapon attacks on his people. For the initial crime, Assad should be tried in an international court of law, no matter what the outcome of the Syrian Civil War. There is only one group who will benefit from this absolute pot mess of madness; the global militant Islamist organisation of Al-Qaeda.
My personal opinion is that those responsible for the use of chemical weapons should be tried and hung. Those who knew of their impending use, who stood back without opposing it, should be tried for assisting in crimes against humanity, and imprisoned. CIA ‘helped Saddam Hussein carry out chemical weapons attack on Iran’ in 1988 I will guarantee that the UK’s special relationship in 1988, placed our own ‘agencies’ and Governments on a level par. They always hope such information never leaks either side of the pond. The old adage of ‘do it-just don’t get caught’ has always applied when meddling in foreign affairs.
The U.S. and the U.K. have bonded, stood by, and supported each other for many years, suffering relevant loss, and gain equally. Politicians through their gross incompetence and negligence should never be allowed to break such a bond.
Tony B’liar poisoned the well of public trust. Yesterday, 30th August 2013, the cowardly spineless leader of the opposition party, Socialist Labour’s Ed Miliband, turned out to be as slippery as B’liar, Miliband is yet another hypocrite Labourite Leader that no one can trust The Labour Party’s Union paymasters pulled Miliband’s strings, and called the shots over the vote in Parliament. The Russians are still the true puppet masters of the trade Union’s.
