Hypocrisy Beyond Belief!

Posted in America, Australia, Brazil, Britain, European Union, Extradition, Justice, News, Police, United Nations with tags , , , , on 30/04/2015 by floroy1942

I just cannot believe the magnitude of hypocrisy shown by the Australian government on the execution of the drug dealers that took place yesterday. It is well known that the gangs arrest in Indonesia was based on information provided by the Australian police, and now they are coming under fire from the government for providing it!

How Would He Feel If One Of HIS Children Died From Drugs?

How Would He Feel If One Of HIS Children Died From Drugs?

The Australian Police Force (AFP) is being summoned by a parliamentary committee to explain why they gave the information to the Indonesian authorities knowing that the death sentence was used in that country. It would seem that guidelines used by the police must take into consideration whether or not the country receiving the information has the death penalty.

Executed - At Least They Will Bring No More Harm To Vulnerable People

Executed – At Least They Will Bring No More Harm To Vulnerable People

So you could say that if a mass murderer is known to the police, escapes to another country and commits a further crime there, while the police of that country are investigating the AFP cannot pass on the information if the recipient country has the death penalty! Unbelievable!

The AFP guidelines set out by the Labour Party in 2010 state, “When the police are giving information to overseas law enforcement agencies about suspected criminals they must take into account the degree of risk to the person in providing the information, including the likelihood the death penalty would be imposed.”

So what this means in effect, is that the Aussie police should not have passed on the information because Indonesia has the death penalty, which would have allowed the gang to continue operating.

David Feeney - A Seriously Misguided Man

David Feeney – A Seriously Misguided Man

When the 2014 directive from the justice minister for the Tony Abbott government, Michael Keenan was released it did not include this restriction. Opposition justice spokesman David Feeney has said it should be included as a ‘matter of urgency’. He said, “We must do all we can to protect Australians from the threat of the death penalty, and to campaign for the global abolition of this cruel punishment”.

All I can say is ‘good luck with that’ for it will never happen. How Mr. Feeney are you going to persuade countries like North Korea, China and the USA etc to give up the death sentence?

It would seem that Mr. Feeney does not have a thought in his head for the family members of those that are killed by drugs or murdered or raped. His attitude seems to be “Oh dear! What a shame, never mind!” We must care for the perpetrators of these crimes!

An Accurate Description

An Accurate Description

I applaud those countries that have not given in to the wishy-washy ‘Do-Gooders’ and ‘Politically Correct’ brigades, like those that abound here in Europe for example who are slowly strangling our democracy.

Abbot In Mourning?

Abbot In Mourning?

Within a day or so the two Australian drug gang leaders bodies will arrive back in Australia for burial, and I am putting my money on them being given a ‘hero’s’ welcome with major outpouring of grief from the people and the government. It would not surprise me if Abbot, or some other government official attended the funeral!

It is sickening to the ‘enth’ degree when people react in this way. They were drug smugglers plain and simple, and they deserved the death penalty for all the pain and misery they cause in the world.

Ban Ki Moon - Sorrow That A Drug Gang Received The Death Penalty?

Ban Ki Moon – Sorrow That A Drug Gang Received The Death Penalty?

Right now, no-one in the Australian government has a single thought for the tens of thousands of lives that are either lost or destroyed because of these evil people. It makes my blood boil to read of the reactions of the Australian, French and Brazilian governments among others, and of course not forgetting that idiot Ban Ki Moon of the U.N. who all protested at their sentence.

According to the latest news reports as many as 30 people a day die from drugs in Indonesia alone. I wonder what the figure would be world-wide?

And yet these governments are so filled with sympathy for the accused, who have caused misery for so many families. It’s just shameful!

Sentenced To Hang - UK 1950

Sentenced To Hang – UK 1950

Much as I hate to repeat myself, I have said in other posts that it is time for all nations to bring back the death penalty for drug crimes, killers, serial rapists and terrorism.

In my day you could count the number of murders in a year on your fingers alone because ‘death by hanging’ was a great deterrent. But since that is gone we have murders almost every day of the week because there is no deterrent! Its time to turn back the clock!

The Last Day of Life

Posted in America, Australia, Britain, European Union, Human Rights, Justice, News, Police, Politics, Prison with tags , , , , on 28/04/2015 by floroy1942

Much of today’s news is about the execution of the nine drug traffickers in Indonesia which has hit the headlines constantly over the past weeks. According to reports they were to be executed at 6pm today British Standard Time, so as I write they should have been put before the firing squad and shot to death just 23 minutes ago.

The news of late has been filled with protestations from the governments of those concerned. Chief among them have been Australia and France who have ‘demanded’ that they not be executed.  Further protests have been lodged by the governments of the USA and Great Britain among others.

As I said in my previous post on this subject, foreign powers should stay out of dictating to any country what to do with criminals that have been found guilty of crimes.

https://floroy1942.wordpress.com/2015/02/25/back-off-australia/

In my view, if Indonesia wishes to execute these drug dealers then that is their right and it is not for foreign governments to dictate otherwise.

So there are two Australian citizens and a French citizen among the criminals – So What! It was a tip-off from the Australian police that got them caught in the first place. They did the crime and now they must pay.

Currently there is more thought given to this drug gang than for the thousands of lives they could have ruined if their vile drugs had reached the shores of Australia. Its pathetic!

A small church had a very attractive big-busted organist, and her breasts were so large that they bounced and jiggled while she played the organ. Unfortunately, she distracted the congregation considerably. The very proper church ladies were appalled. They said something had to be done about this or they would have to get another organist.
So, one of the ladies approached her very discreetly about the problem, and told her to mash up some green persimmons and rub them on her nipples and over her breasts, which should cause them to shrink in size, but warned her not to taste any of the green persimmons, because they are so sour they will make your mouth pucker up, and you won’t be able to talk properly for a while. The voluptuous organist, reluctantly agreed to try it.
The following Sunday morning the minister walked up to the pulpit and said…. Dew to thircumsthanthis bewond my contwol, we will not hab a thermon tewday.

A man and his wife were getting a divorce at a local court in Greece, but the custody of their children posed a problem.

The mother jumped to her feet and protested to the judge that since she had brought the children into this world, she should retain custody of them.

The man also wanted custody of his children, so the judge asked for his side of the story.

After a long moment of silence, the man rose from his chair and replied: “Your Honour, when I put a coin into a vending  machine and a Coke comes out, does the Coke belong to me or to the machine?” – He won!

Northampton Police report finding a man’s body in the River Nene, near Becketts Park. The dead man’s name will not be released until his family has been notified..
The victim apparently drowned due to excessive beer consumption. He was wearing black fishnet stockings, a red garter belt, a pink G-string, a strap-on dildo, purple lipstick, and a ‘Miliband for PM’ on his T-shirt. He also had a cucumber inserted in his rectum.
The police removed the Ed Milliband T-shirt to spare his family any unnecessary embarrassment.
In spite of what we sometimes think, the Police do care.

Pope Francis recently finished his sermon.  He ended it with the Latin phrase, “Tuti Homini” – “Blessed be Mankind.” A Woman’s Rights Group approached the Pope the next day.They noticed that the Pope blessed all Mankind, but not womankind. So the next day, after his sermon, the Pope concluded by saying, “Tuti Homini, et Tuti Femini” – “Blessed be Mankind and Womankind.” The day after, a Gay Rights Group approached the Pope.They said that they noticed that he blessed Mankind and Womankind and asked if he could also bless gay people. The Pope said, “Sure.” The next day the Pope concluded his sermon with,   “Tuti Homini, et Tuti Femini, et Tuti Fruiti.”

A Kansas farm wife called the local phone company to report her telephone failed to ring when her friends called and that on the few occasions, when it did ring, her dog always moaned right before the phone rang.
A telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this psychic dog or senile lady. He climbed a telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and dialled the subscriber’s house. The phone didn’t ring right away, but then the dog moaned and the telephone began to ring.
Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:
1. The dog was tied to the telephone system’s ground wire with a steel chain and collar.
2. The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.
3. The dog was receiving 90 volts of signalling current when the number was called.
4. After a couple of jolts, the dog would start moaning and then urinate.
5. The wet ground would complete the circuit, thus causing the phone to ring.
This demonstrates that some problems CAN be fixed by pissing and moaning.

For the last six odd years, almost all of the things I wanted to write or say, have been stymied by a recently coined term referred to as “POLITICAL CORRECTNESS”! Although I consider myself rather fluent in the English language, that term was not in my vocabulary. My curiosity got the best of me and I decided to do a little research and after two weeks of chasing fruitless leads, I found what I’d been looking for at the Truman Library and Museum in Independence Missouri. An unnamed source there sent me copies of four telegrams that were between Harry Truman and Douglas MacArthur on the day before the actual signing of the Japanese Surrender Agreement. The contents of those four telegrams below are exactly as received, not a word has been added or deleted!

 (1) Tokyo , Japan

0800-September 1,1945

To: President Harry S Truman

From: General D A MacArthur

Tomorrow we meet with those yellow bellied bastards and sign the Surrender Documents, any last minute instructions!

 (2) Washington, D C

1300-September 1, 1945

To: D A MacArthur

From: H S Truman

Congratulations, job well done, but you must tone down your obvious dislike of the Japanese when discussing the terms of the surrender with the press, because some of your remarks are fundamentally not politically correct!

 (3) Tokyo , Japan

1630-September 1, 1945

To: H S Truman

From: D A MacArthur and C H Nimitz

Wilco Sir, but both Chester and I are somewhat confused, exactly what does the term politically correct mean?

 (4) Washington, D C

2120-September 1, 1945

To: D A MacArthur/C H Nimitz

From: H S Truman

Political Correctness is a doctrine, recently fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end!

‘Til next time.

What Can We Do About The Migrant Crisis?

Posted in Britain, Christianity, Environment, European Union, Human Rights, Immigrants, Islamic Revolution, News, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , on 20/04/2015 by floroy1942

Once more the death of a host of migrants trying to reach the shores of Europe has hit the headlines. This time approximately 700 people on a small boat have died within 80 miles of the Libyan shore, and what has Libya done about it, well, the answer is once again; Very little! 

Asylum Seekers Make The Crossing 2014

Asylum Seekers Make The Crossing 2014

Lampedusa is a small Italian island 180 miles from the Libyan coast while the closest the Italian mainland comes to Libya is 260 miles, so you have to ask who has the major role in stopping and/or rescuing these people? It should be Libya, but as usual it is mostly left to the Italians to find and rescue those that could be rescued, and to search for the bodies of the missing.

It forces the question, why is Libya not taking a leading role in this dilemma, after all it is in their territorial waters? From their half-hearted interest one would think they are happy that these people are leaving their shores, no matter what the perils. It would seem they have little regard for the lives of refugees.

Sinking

Sinking

In all the stories I have read and seen on the TV News, I have seldom heard of a Libyan boat helping these people when they are in trouble. The Libyan government is doing nothing to stop them from taking this huge gamble, and certainly doing nothing to stop the people traffickers who are operating on their soil.

I for one fail to understand how people as destitute as these refugees can come up with $1,000 to pay the traffickers for the trip. Surely that amount of money would go a long way in their own country. How do they come by it? Admittedly, some are fleeing the violence and are not necessarily poor, but many are.

The Refugee Crisis

The Refugee Crisis

You have to ask why they all want to come to Europe, but really the answer is quite simple. Here they are always allowed in. After a short stay in a refugee camp they are released and receive a home, money to live on, and for the most part, free medical care. So why would they not want to come to Europe? You can cry pity for these poor people as much as you like, but some time it has to stop.

Before I go further, let me state clearly that I can understand the hardships these people have to live under, especially when they are fleeing the violence meted out indiscriminately by Muslim terrorists like Islamic State and al Shebab. But surely they would be better off heading for another Arab land like Bahrain or Saudi Arabia for example. But no, they all want to come to Europe, the land of milk and honey.

Demonstration In Favour Of Refugees

Demonstration In Favour Of Refugees

The Italian government wanted to cut back on the sea patrols to dissuade the migrants from trying to cross, but what happened, storms of protest from other E.U. nations and human rights organizations about the inhumanity of leaving these people to die. What is remarkable however, is that these protests were not accompanied by offers of help, and none of it was directed at the Libyan government! Italy has been left holding the bag and resources are being strained to the limit.

Many European nations have made no effort whatsoever to take in refugees once they land on European shores. Most head for western nations like France, the U.K., Germany and Holland among others. Few are taken in by east European lands by comparison.

If Europe is to continue its humanitarian help to these people then the load has to start being shared by all nations. While it may be up to Italy to provide the help, all other nations should at least bear part of the cost, and Brussels must recognize this quickly.

Time For Action Not More Words

Time For Action Not More Words

But the biggest problem is how to stop the flow of migrants heading for our shores. In my view all the nations of the world need to work together to firstly wipe out the terrorist threat in these countries, and then improve living conditions for the people.

I can already hear you thinking, that is a tall order, but impossible, no!

When the threat of communism struck South Korea in the 1950’s, world powers came together and drove back the North Korean Army when it invaded the south. That was the only time in history that the U.N. fulfilled its role as it was intended to be. Aggression by one nation on another would be met by the unparalleled might of all other nations. Since that time the U.N. has become nothing more than a talking shop resorting to ‘Condemning’ verbally any act of aggression.

The War Is Over!

The War Is Over!

The Korean War was a hard and bloody battle, but democracy won in the end, so who is to say that all nations cannot come together to defeat the Muslim terrorist threat across the world? All it needs is the will, and for the United Nations to get off its fat duff and do something positive for a change.

Think what you may about the Muslim insurrection but it is spreading bit by bit, one country to another, and soon it may be on our doorstep if we ignore it. It is said by experts that if Islamic State manage to take over the North African countries, which they are trying to do, then Europe will be next. Who is to say this is impossible, for we already have in excess of 56 million Muslims living among us, and many show their radical leanings on a daily basis.

All In The Name Of Allah The Peaceful God

All In The Name Of Allah The Peaceful God

Once the terrorist threat is dealt with, the next thing is to improve the living conditions of those enduring difficult circumstances. Again this is work for the United Nations, but why shouldn’t they do something to earn the fat salaries they get?

For countries like Africa the biggest challenge is the effects of global warming which is slowly turning the entire continent into one huge desert. Year on year the Sahara is extending southwards. but the solution is already known.

Environmentalists have for years said that the way to stop the encroachment of the Sahara is to plant a forest of trees across its current limits to bring back the rain.

Saving Africa

Saving Africa – The Tree Line

Impossible I hear you say, but why? There are trees enough in the world to supply the necessary seeds and saplings for planting, and we cannot say we do not have the manpower. The rich countries of the world can also supply water to barren areas of Africa and other places because we have the technology, and the means.

Water Flows Under The Sahara - All We Have To Do Is Reach It

Water Flows Under The Sahara – All We Have To Do Is Reach It

If a united effort were to be made by all countries to supply the necessary equipment and expertise it could be done. Man never knows what he is capable of until he tries! All it takes is the united will of the people and the governments.

By making the homeland of these migrants liveable we can stop this endless flow of refugees to our shores and improve the lives of millions. Worth the effort I would say.

Earth After Man

Earth After Man

I guess that many readers are currently scoffing at these outrageous suggestions, but mankind is under serious threat right now and unless we take positive action soon it will be too late. There is hope for mankind if we all stop thinking of ourselves and share what we have with those less fortunate.

A blonde went into a worldwide message centre to send a message to her mother overseas. When the man told her it would cost $300, she exclaimed, “I don’t have that kind of money!! But I would do ANYTHING to get a message to my mother in Poland!” The man arched an eyebrow. “Anything?” “Yes, anything!” the blonde promised.

With that, the man told her, “Follow me.” He walked into the next room and ordered, “Come in and close the door.” She did. He then said, “Get on your knees.” She did. Then he said, “Take down my zipper.” She did. He said, “Go ahead…take it out.” She took it out and grabbed hold of it with both hands. The man closed his eyes and whispered, “Well… go ahead!” The blonde slowly brought her lips closer, and while holding it close to her lips she said loudly “HELLO…..MOM, can you hear me???”

A’hhhhh . . . . . . . . . Remember those days?
It was a hot Saturday evening in the summer of 1960, and James had a date with Annabella.  He arrived at her house and rang the bell.  ‘Oh, come on in!’ Annabella’s mother said as she welcomed James.  ‘Have a seat in the sitting room. Would you like something to drink?  Lemonade? Tea?’  ‘Tea, please,’ James said.

Mum brought in the tea. ‘So, what are you and Annabella planning to do tonight?’ she asked interestedly. ‘Oh, probably go to the flicks and then maybe grab a bite to eat at the coffee bar, perhaps have a walk on the beach afterwards.’  ‘Annabella likes to screw, you know,’ Mum informed him. ‘Really?’ James gasped, surprised to say the  least. ‘Oh yes,’ mother continued, ‘When  she goes out with her friends, that’s all they  do. ‘Is that so?’ asked James, incredulously. ‘ Oh yes,’ she said. As a matter of fact, she’d screw all night if we  let her!’ ‘Phew! Well, thanks for the tip!’ James said as he began thinking about alternative plans for the evening.

A moment later, Annabella came down the stairs looking pretty as a picture, wearing a pink blouse and a hoop skirt, with her hair tied back in a bouncy ponytail. She greeted James. ‘Have fun, kids!’ mother said as they left. Half an hour later, a completely dishevelled Annabella burst into the house, slamming the front door behind her. ‘The Twist, Mum!’ she yelled angrily to her mother in the kitchen.  ‘The bloody dance is called the Twist!’

African Plastic Ban – Something We Can All Learn From

Posted in America, Britain, England, Environment, European Union, Illegal Dumping, Nature, News, Oceans, Plastic with tags , , , , on 13/04/2015 by floroy1942

I watched with interest a news item on France 24 channel yesterday that should point the way for the whole world. The headline is: Plastic is banned in Rwanda.

Good Night Out Last Night - What Did You Do With Your McDonald's Hamburger Box?

Good Night Out Last Night – What Did You Do With Your McDonald’s Hamburger Box?

Non-biodegradable plastic has for years been a plague on our planet and it is without doubt time that its use is severely limited. Our towns, cities and countryside, and more important our oceans, are becoming clogged with the stuff. Everywhere you go these days you will find plastic bags, cartons, bottles, wrappers and the like littering our streets, our waterways and the seas.

It would seem that many manufacturers cannot think past plastic. If you buy even fruit or vegetables in a supermarket these days, chances are they will come in a plastic tray with a plastic film wrapper. WHY! If the goods need to be in a tray, which I don’t believe they do for these are purely for presentation, then why not a cardboard one as in the old days?

High Winds - Who Knows Where It Will End Up?

High Winds – Who Knows Where It Will End Up?

In Britain alone a total of eight billion plastic bags were handed out to customers by supermarkets and shops in 2012. Add that to the rest of Europe and it comes out at trillions per year. You should ask yourself how many of yours ended up in the wrong place because you didn’t care!

Up to the sixties everything came wrapped in paper, cardboard or a derivative, and everyone was happy. Today it all comes down to profit because plastic is cheaper.

Eventually To End Up In The Oceanic Gyre?

Eventually To End Up In The Oceanic Gyre?

Here in Marbella you do not need to walk far on the beaches before you come across a discarded plastic bag, water bottle or wrapper. We have become so careless with waste disposal these days that even though there may be a litter bin a few metres away, it is too much trouble for many to dispose of litter properly.

As I have reported in previous posts (https://floroy1942.wordpress.com/2010/02/26/welcome-to-plastic-island/) plastic is steadily clogging up our oceans to the extent that there are country sized accumulations in all our oceans called gyres.

I NEVER Throw These Away Without Cutting Open All The Loops First!

I NEVER Throw These Away Without Cutting Open All The Loops First!

Plastic is breaking down in sunlight into micro-plastic that is eaten by fish and sea birds, and much of the fish ends up on our dinner table. What most people seem to forget is that normal plastic is non-biodegradable! It will still litter our planet in one thousand years after it is carelessly thrown away!

- And This Is Why!

– And This Is Why!

It was reported recently that even the Mediterranean Sea now has huge gyres of plastic that are steadily being eaten by the fish. If it continues, it will become a major problem for the extensive fishing industry in countries bordering the Mediterranean as in other parts of the world.

Says It All!

Rwanda – Says It All!

It is for these reasons that I applaud the actions taken by the Rwandan government to ban non-biodegradable  plastics in the country. Top of the list is plastic shopping bags, for these have received an outright ban. The people are now being forced to use paper bags to carry the shopping.

Passengers arriving at Kigali Airport are now searched for plastic, and any found is confiscated. If you have a package or suitcase wrapped in plastic it is cut off and confiscated before you can enter the country. The same goes for the country’s borders.

Refreshing To See A Nice Clean City

Refreshing To See A Nice Clean City

It has been reported by people travelling through Rwanda that now-a-days everything is a lot cleaner. No longer is there the spectacle of plastic bags blown around on the streets and in the countryside, and no longer are the trees festooned with plastic caught on branches. A lesson for us all in our supposedly ‘civilized’ world.

Europe vainly tried a couple of years ago to limit the use of supermarket plastic bags by charging for them, locally its ten cents, but that was a waste of time. You still see people leaving the supermarkets with a trolley full to the brim with shopping in a dozen or more plastic bags.

Litter On The Street -  A Regular Occurence In Europe

Litter On The Street – A Regular Occurence In Europe

In Europe as in most western countries it is a common sight to see shopping bags or other plastic items littering the streets, they are everywhere. In many cases these items find their way into rivers and streams and pollute our water supply, but who the hell cares, its only a plastic bag.

Few people realize the damage that is being done to our environment by discarded plastic, and sad to say, many don’t care anyway. Unfortunately it is not about the here and now, but what we are doing to future generations with our careless plastic pollution.

What Would You Think If This Ended Up On Your Dinner Table?

What Would You Think If This Ended Up On Your Dinner Table?

It is time for the rest of the world, in particular the richer nations to follow this example set by Rwanda and enforce an outright ban on plastic carrier bags as a start, and then move to other plastic wrapping materials. It may cost a little more, but at least it will be a step in the right direction towards saving our planet.

Are The Iran Nuclear Negotiations Worth It?

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Insurgents, Iran, Israel, News, Nuclear Proliferation, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , on 09/04/2015 by floroy1942

Do you believe that Iran is seeking to make nuclear weapons or that, as they say, it is for peaceful purposes only? This thorny issue has been of major concern to many countries for the past twelve years. For more than a decade negotiations have been on-going, and in my view are still far from an agreement.

Says It All Really

Says It All Really

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei

In a recent statement Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said, “I have never been optimistic about negotiating with America. While I was not optimistic, I agreed with this particular negotiation and supported the negotiators.” He went on to say, “We will sign no agreement but the one that immediately abolishes all the economic sanctions on the first day of the implementation of the agreement.” It would seem he wants ‘to have his cake and eat it too’.

The negotiators on the other side of the table are insisting that sanctions will be lifted gradually once it is seen that Iran is abiding by the terms of the agreement. I would consider this to be a much more sensible approach than that stated by the Iranian Leader.

Iran's Nuclear Facilities

Iran’s Nuclear Facilities

To demand the removal of all sanctions on the day the agreement is signed is no guarantee that Iran will fully take the steps required to limit its nuclear programme.

There will need to be a system of inspections by the  The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to ensure conformance with the terms of the agreement, otherwise Iran could just continue with their activities in secret. This all takes time to arrange, and verification will be a long process. In my view, Iran has been stringing out these talks for more than ten years while in the background they have been continuing their quest for fissionable material. After so many years of negotiation it is highly possible they already have sufficient material to make at least one nuclear weapon, crude though it might be. It would be easy to hide this away somewhere out of sight of the IAEA inspectors.

Nuclear Site

Nuclear Site

It is worthy to note that when they first allowed these inspectors into their sites a couple of years ago they allowed inspections of all but one, and then some months later allowed the inspectors into that site while refusing them entry to another. Smells fishy to me, how about you?

If over the intervening years Iran has managed to make sufficient nuclear material for a bomb, what would they do with it?

Their two main enemies are Israel, and as stated on many an occasion, the United States of America. So if you were them, and had a secret nuclear bomb what would you do with it?

Tactics

Tactics

The whole idea of Iran becoming a nuclear nation is a horrific one, for being a staunch Islamic nation which has shown its hatred for the West on many occasions, with atomic weapons it is capable of anything.  Iran has been a very active supporter of terrorist groups across the world, supplying them with arms and funds for their inhuman activities, so who is to say they will not provide someone like al Quada or Islamic State with a nuclear weapon?

A Terrorists Dream

A Terrorists Dream

There are without doubt more than enough terrorist organizations that would love to have a nuclear weapon, no matter how crude. They make no secret about who their enemies are, and would love the chance to blow up Tel Aviv or New York for example. Who is to say Iran would not initiate a devastating nuclear attack on Israel, their sworn enemy?

'Diplomacy' At Work

‘Diplomacy’ At Work

Iran as a nuclear nation would also be a great threat in the Middle East, for it would give them control, and if you remember, that’s where most of the world’s oil comes from.

This insistence by Iran that all sanctions are lifted as soon as the agreement is signed could spell the end of the negotiations. It remains to be seen if the western powers will cave in to this, but if they do it will set a dangerous precedent.
