it just goes from bad to worse. I cannot shake the cyinical belief this latest "push" is to get Snotty a victory for election day. You know my take on all this terrible slaughter in the name of Labour, Subrosa and I'm not convinced by the so called Tories. I might be a rightie but that doesn't make me a war monger. As for the lefties, anything that fits at a given time, like getting filthy rich.

I does go from bad to worse. This is only the beginning. The Taliban will be away regrouping.

The Afghan government are incapable of governing and that will show shortly.

All this is being done with our money of course.

I'd propose a revolution to get rid of the government but it's probably illegal. Meantime no matter what I vote in my constituency I'll still get Unionists and war without end.

Wars without ends, that's what this century holds for us. How did we get to this when peace is what we should be extolling?

Observer said...

Wars without ends is based on the utterly false premise that we are at war with Islam. We are not, that is bolleaux.

God help me, but as a socialist I actually hope the Tories get in; viewing it from this perspective. They know you bargain and treat with people. You don't fight senseless wars.
