Is The Whole World Going Mad!

Posted in America, Britain, England, European Union, Islamic Revolution, Modern World, News, Security Council, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 16/10/2018 by floroy1942

We see all over the world fighting going on and it will not stop. When I was young the world was at peace, except for the Russians and they did not do anything except make threats. The world was a peace in the sixties, but today the world has moved on and war is everywhere. In the Middle East and the Far East war is everywhere. There are demonstrations all across the globe and it will never end unless the governments does something about it.

It is up to the United Nations to do something about it and stop the wars that are created havoc across the world, but they sit on their fat backsides and do nothing except complain about the wars that going on. They should gather together an army and stop these wars. In 1960 they took action against North Korea and put a stop to it so the world could live in peace once again. But they do nothing about the wars in Syria and other places except complain about it. They should gather an army and stop these many wars that are going around across the globe and finish it once and for all.

Demonstrations are going on in South America and other countries, and this has to stop. Let the governments listen to the people and make changes so that everyone can live in peace. But they do not listen to people and this leads to demonstrations across the whole the world. Even in Europe there are demonstrations in most countries, although Europe is living in peace. The governments should listen to the people and make changes.

The world is getting darker and the people are rebellious about the governments who have no mind about the people. The governments continue to make their own rules without disregard for the people. They are the governments which rule the countries and it a sorry state of affairs that they do not care for the people.

I can see that the whole world will be in turmoil in few years time, and the governments will be wiped out as the people and will turn to anarchy. I am 74 years old and I do not wish to see anarchy in my lifetime.

Wishes For World Peace

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Insurgents, Islamic Revolution, Muslim, News, Nuclear Proliferation, Russia, Security Council with tags , , , , on 28/07/2018 by floroy1942

The whole world is in turmoil at the moment, and it has been that for years. When is the world going to be at peace? It does not seem likely for the future unless we go to war in which the whole world will be destroyed. When the war is over then there will be peace on Earth and the few survivors will be able to start again.

It is a shameful world that we go on fighting for the sake of land-grabs the search for power, and the terrible thing is most of us will not survive. There will be a few people that will survive and they will be living in hardship.

The weather will take most of the Earth and spread the radioactivity in most places across the world, except perhaps the north and south poles. Those who survive will be in the wilderness, and they will find it hard to continue living. Whales and seals will be their food and they will find it hard as the numbers dwindle.

Most other people will die of radioactive poisoning and the world will be nothing but a ruin. Only the north and south poles may be excused for the terrible trauma the overtakes the world.

We have to find a way and the will, bring the world to peace once and for all.  No-one cares about way the world is going, and they will have a shock when war breaks out among the major nations of the world.

People will be scurrying for shelters, but that will not do them any good as the shelters, and there are not many, will be blocked by the Army and the politicians.  We have come to an impasse where there are many conflicts around the world and most of it is due to the Muslims. There are battles raging across the Middle East and the Far East and they are trying to take over countries.

The United Nations should be able to handle this, but they sit on their fat backsides do nothing. It time for the U.N. to realise that the world is going to pot and they should do something about it. The United Nations have to do something to stop the Muslims from taking over the world, and that means they should take action. Once the Muslims are defeated then the world will return to peace.

The Veto Scandal

Posted in America, Britain, Equality, European Union, Islamic Revolution, Israel, News, Security Council, Summit, United Nations with tags , , , , on 13/04/2017 by floroy1942

Is it any wonder that Russia vetoed the Security Councils resolution on the Syria chemical attack? The veto has been a thorn in the side of the United Nations for the last forty years.

Russian Veto

In my view the only reason Russia is backing Assad is to retain their military bases in Syria. Practically the whole world  blames Assad for the chemical attacks on his own people but Russia still stands by him, and has done since the beginning of the conflict.

Russia has a naval base in Syria on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea given to them by Assad and they don’t want to lose it, which is why they are backing him.

Negotiations have been going on for years trying to stop Assad from using chemical weapons on his own people, but all have failed because of Russia’s backing.

Founders of the United Nations

The veto goes back to the time when the United Nations was formed by Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin after the Second World War and they initiated the veto to stop other countries from putting the world in danger. It has survived up to the present day and many of the decisions made by various countries have stopped positive action being taken against nations that have caused problems. The only exception was the Korean War which took place in 1950. Here the United Nations acted as it was supposed to and stopped the Communists from taking over the whole Korean peninsula.

But when you get to the present day the veto has caused more problems in the world. The United States vetoed any action against Israel during the war with Egypt in 1973 among many others, and Russia has constantly vetoed any action against Assad.

In my view the veto should be scrapped, for all countries must have a say in how the world is run. If it is, then we can stop many conflicts around the world before they get started.

I have for a long time said that the United Nations has a duty to put an end to the ISIS threat once and for all. It should gather a group of nations and go in and wipe them out. Once ISIL has been thoroughly defeated then the world can return to peace, and Islam will get the message that they will never end up ruling the world. Assad should be arrested and put on trial for the atrocities he has committed against his own people.

It is only by the concerted efforts of all countries that this debacle will end. The sad thing is, it will never end until Russia stops backing Assad.

Sad to say, the United Nations has lost its original mandate and become nothing more than a talking shop that does not achieve anything when it comes to world peace. The true purpose of its foundation was lost years ago, and today it does nothing more than verbally ‘condemn’ actions by countries or groups that want to cause trouble.

The Syrian war has been going on for years, but if the United Nations had stepped in positively at the beginning it would have been long over.

It is time for the United Nations to start acting as it was intended, and prevent wars breaking out. If it does not, then we might as well scrap it.

Where Is Our World Heading?

Posted in America, Britain, European Union, Islamic State, Muslim, News, Nuclear Weapons, Politics, Security Council, United Nations with tags , , , , on 09/11/2016 by floroy1942

Not since the Second World War have there been so many problems in our world as today. It makes me wonder what our future holds for us. On every continent there is trouble and strife, unbounded crime, often violent demonstrations by the public, and in many cases war.

What does the future hold for the human race? Are we headed for complete annihilation in a few decades? The steadily rising tensions between the United States and Russia are an indication that we could be headed for a nuclear war if someone doesn’t do something to cool down relations between the two countries.

This has all been brought about by the rising tensions over the battles raging in Syria because the Russians back Assad, while the West considers him a criminal.

The ISIS insurgency is causing major problems all across the world from the Far East to Western shores and currently there is no end solution. As I have often said, if the U.N. were to put together an international force to wipe out ISIS and all other Muslim insurgents wherever they appear we could return to peace, but they just don’t seem interested. So consequently we have many nations fighting this terrorist organisation and they cannot all agree on the way forward. This is causing tensions among many governments and has led to major disagreements between Russia and the western nations.

Also there is the rising tensions between China and many Far Eastern countries over control of the East and South China Seas, which China claims for itself. They have no right to do this, and many countries including Japan, are fighting against it.

On top of this we have the governments of many lands at loggerheads with the population in many parts of the world where people want a change of leadership. This is evident in places like South Africa, Venezuela, Libya, Yemen, Japan and even Singapore among many others. Unrest is spreading across the globe as more and more people are dissatisfied with their government. The world has never seen as many problems as we have now.

The big problem for mankind is, where will it all end? If Russia and the West cannot solve their problems we could see a nuclear war breaking out, and that would mean the end of life on this planet. The leaders of the world need to come together to work out plans for peace before we end up starting the Armageddon process from which there would be no turning back.

The United Nations (even the name is a farce for they are a long way from being united) needs to come together with no preconceived ideas, and talk to each other honestly and with sincerity if the human race is to survive.

All countries need to work together if we are to solve the tensions that exists between nations. On top of that, they need to discuss the many problems that face the world like famine, hunger, over population, climate change, and of course the threat of wars breaking out.

Ever since the United Nations stepped in to stop communists from taking over South Korea in 1950 it has done nothing but stand on the sidelines. There have been many high level discussions about problems in the world, but all have achieved nothing.

To my mind the United Nations has outgrown its usefulness for they seem incapable of solving any of the world’s problems. I have not heard yet of a top level meeting between the five nations of the Security Council to solve the ongoing problems between Russia and The West. You have to ask if they are capable of doing such a thing, for everyone is out for their own interests.

With the rising tensions across the world one would expect the U.N. to be in the forefront of attempts to make peace, but no, they just sit on their fat backsides and do nothing.

People in most countries not directly affected by these tensions go about their daily business without a care in the world, for they do not see the building of tensions among certain countries and what could ensue from this.

If mankind is to survive there has to be serious discussion and agreement on tackling the problems of the world, otherwise we are all lost. Lets hope that in the near future the people at the top will see the sense in this.

Why Is The U.N. Not Fulfilling Its Mandate!

Removing The Bodies In Ivory Coast

Removing The Bodies In Ivory Coast

The latest terrible attack in Turkey, and the killing of holiday makers in Ivory Coast reinforces my belief that the United Nations, instead of sitting on its fat arse doing nothing, should step in to solve this terrorism threat to the world.

When you consider that it was formed to ensure world peace, ever since the Korean War in 1950 it has done nothing to solve the world’s problems. Now, since the rise of terrorism, all it has managed to do is verbally ‘condemn‘ the actions of these radicals who enjoy killing so much.

These terrorists are nothing more than religious fanatics who think that one day they will rule the world. The rest of us know this will never happen, but in the meantime they are killing tens of thousands of people in many countries.

Considering that the number one mandate of the United Nations is to eradicate war, you would imagine that this body of people would step in and do something to end the violence. But no! they just sit on their fat behinds and talk, talk, talk before verbally ‘condemning’ the actions of these vile people.

Meanwhile people across the world are being slaughtered and tortured, with women being forced into sex slavery for these maniacs. It has to stop!

Terror Once Again In Ankara

Terror Once Again In Ankara

It is a fact that the majority of the victims of these killers are their own people, but it brings home to the rest of us what animals they are when they attack places like Paris, Ankara and holiday destinations like Africa. Of one thing you can be sure, it is far from over, for Islāmic State have already made clear that a series of attacks will take place in Europe in the near future.

Angela Merkel’s insane invitation to immigrants to come and live in Germany has already ensured that there are literally thousands of I.S. fighters who have crossed the Mediterranean among the refugees, and are now busy getting themselves organized for some major attacks. It is only a matter of time before they strike. Once they are here it is very difficult to find and arrest them before they can do some harm, but we must try.

The U.N. should get together an international force and go to any country where these bastards live and wipe them out to a man. There is no need to interfere in that country’s politics, just go in, do the job and leave.

U.N. Mandate

U.N. Mandate

Currently there are Islamic terrorists in  139 countries across the world. We do not get to hear of most atrocities because the main Press attention is fixed on the victims of Islamic State and other Middle East groups.

The world just cannot go on like this, otherwise we will end up in a world war with almost every nation involved as they all battle with these radicals on their own soil. There has to be some concerted action coming from somewhere, and it is up to the nations of the world to come together at the U.N. and unite against these despicable people. It they do not, it will continue for years and years and eventually millions will die.

If I Hear The Word ‘Condemn’ One More Time….

Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa

I don’t know about you, but I am sick of hearing politicians world-wide ‘condemn’ acts of terrorism but doing nothing to stop them. Now after the tragic murder of the Japanese reporters  Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa by Islamic State (IS), once again they are trotting along to the nearest microphone to ‘condemn’ this latest atrocity. Despite the disturbing reason for this, it is almost becoming a game in modern politics to see who will win the race to the microphone.

I.S. Leader - Does He Look Impressed That  Politicians Condemn His Actions?

I.S. Leader – Does He Look Impressed That Politicians Condemn His Actions?

Do these idiots really imagine that religious fanatics like I.S., Boko Haram, al Quada and all the rest of these killers are the slightest bit interested that they ‘condemn’ their acts of barbarism? For more than a decade the world has had to put up with terrorist groups killing innocent people in this Muslim ‘Holy War’ and still no-one has had the guts to stand up and say: Enough is enough!

Abubakar Shekau Boko Haram Leader - He Doesn't Look Impressed Either!

Abubakar Shekau Boko Haram Leader – He Doesn’t Look Impressed Either!

After all the excesses of Boko Haram in Africa at least now the African Union is talking about coming together to do something positive about this group by forming a multi-national fighting force to go in and destroy them. I await the results.

The sad thing is, this should have happened when the true colours of this group became known. The same can be said for others like I.S., al Quada and the Taliban.

I believe part of the trouble is that people and governments all across the world have become so hardened to terrorism after all these years, that so long as it happens to other people in another country it is nothing more than a news item.  It is however a lot different when it happens in your own country as we saw in Paris a couple of weeks ago.

Victims Of The Baga Attack

Victims Of The Baga Attack

But did anyone in Paris and across the world think for a moment about the 2,000 Nigerians killed in the town of Baga in a senseless slaughter by Boko Haram during the same period. Not One! All eyes were on Paris because that one hit home.

Many nations across the world have suffered at the hands of these religious fanatics who seem to think that Islam will rule the world and are determined to do whatever is necessary to achieve this goal. The sheer barbarism of these people has been highlighted often enough during the public displays of I.S. when they beheaded people on world-wide television.

I have to ask (yet again) how long does the world plan to stand by and put up with these atrocities before someone decides that we must do something positive to stop this senseless bloodshed?

In previous posts I have asked why the United Nations is not taking action to stop this outrage. Is it not time these politicians got off their fat backsides and did something positive for world peace?

The Aims Of The United Nations - Some Joke!

The Aims Of The United Nations – Some Joke!

 I am sure that if just one man had the balls to stand before the council and ask for volunteers from all nations to come together and strike at these people there would be volunteers enough.

There are some 27 countries world-wide that have, or are suffering attacks by Muslim extremists, and there have been 48 major terror attacks across the world from New York to the Philippines in the last twenty years.

Its not enough to say “Oh, it’s an Arab problem” and leave it at that, because now even Middle East countries are beginning to feel threatened by these terrorists. The I.S. leader has already been quoted as saying that attacks should begin in Saudi Arabia.

There will come a time when the whole Middle East will be embroiled in civil war if these people are allowed to continue. I am sure everyone will realize the grave danger of such a thing happening.

If You Are Not Going To Use Them For The Benefit Of The World Why Have Them?

If You Are Not Going To Use Them For The Benefit Of The World Why Have Them?

There can be little doubt that terrorism has become a world problem, and as such it must be dealt with by a coming together of military forces from all countries to defeat it before it gets any further. To continue ignoring the threat will only result in chaos, death and eventual subjugation of the people, for it is clear that groups such as I.S., Boko Haram etc. will not be satisfied once they achieve their goal of forming a Muslim state under their control, but will wish to spread outwards.

Rest assured that all countries ignore this threat at their peril, for it will not stop until all terrorist groups have been annihilated.

Syria’s Children To Become The Lost Generation?

Posted in America, Arab, Britain, Children, Human Rights, Insurgents, News, Security Council, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , on 06/01/2015 by floroy1942

Reports out today suggest that children living in areas controlled by the Islamic State (IS) in Eastern Syria, could become the lost generation due to restrictions placed upon them by the militants. Last December I.S. closed all the schools until a new curriculum is released.

Damaged School

Damaged School

In all, an estimated 670,000 school children have been banned from attending until the curriculum has been sanitized to conform one hundred percent with Islamic Law by the terrorists (or at least their version of it).

The I.S. has also informed all teachers that they must undergo retraining before being able to teach again. Obviously with the intention that they teach what the I.S. wants and nothing else. From this we can assume that children attending schools in these areas will be groomed to believe in the I.S. version of Islam and follow their ideals.

Survivor Of Incendiary Attack On A School

Survivor Of Incendiary Attack On A School

Last year in Syria alone, an estimated 160 children died, and 343 injured in direct attacks on schools, or when their school was caught in the middle of the fighting.

Between 2.1 and 2.4 million children in Syria are unable to attend school regularly  because of the fighting, which means the country could end up with a lost generation who must survive without a full education.

This is without doubt a tragic situation, for a good education is everybody’s right. It is however noteworthy that in the Islamic religion girls are not educated to the same level as boys on religious grounds.

UNICEF's Syrian Representative Christophe Boulierac

UNICEF’s Syrian representative Christophe Boulierac, said in statement: “In December there was a decree of the Islamic State ordering the stoppage of education in areas under its control.” He added, “Attacks on schools, teachers and students are further horrific reminders of the terrible price Syria’s children are paying in a crisis approaching its fifth year.”

This brings me to the question, why has this war been going on for five long years? With all this upheaval in the Middle East why hasn’t the United Nations stepped in and put an end to the war and forced the perpetrators to sit around the negotiating table? Just like the current trouble in Ukraine they are sitting on the sidelines doing nothing when they have the power to stop it.

Syrian School

Someone needs to stand before the entire U.N. Council, wake them out of their slumber and give them a good talking to! The U.N. was formed with the idea of mediating between countries to prevent the outbreak of wars, but instead they sit on their backsides and watch from the sidelines. I know many of my regular readers have heard all this from me in the past, but I would love to give them all a good talking to.

What has been happening in the Middle East is shocking beyond compare, especially when it has cost so many innocent lives and now is ruining the lives of future generations.

Christian Children Slaughtered By I.S.

It is not difficult to imagine what the ‘new’ curriculum will contain. For sure it will extol the I.S. propaganda and turn children into radicals that believe in the I.S. version of Islam. This as we now know is based on conformity with what they say, and will include total submissiveness and the worst forms of brutality for non-compliance.

I.S. have already shown the world what they will do to those who stand up against them and their beliefs with their much publicised be-headings and torture.

I.S. Leader Is Already Urging His Followers To Attack Saudi Arabia.

Recent news has shown that they are already starting to push their ideology into neighbouring countries, and chief among them is Saudi Arabia. As usual it starts in a small way, but given time can blossom into a major problem. If nothing is done to stop them the whole Middle East could become a war zone.

This is one of the reasons why all countries must come together and stop them, militarily if necessary. If we do not, then what is happening now will be the tip of the iceberg.

The U. N. Is Failing The World

Its true I seldom have a good word to say about politicians, but this time I must praise one, but more of that later. The fight against the so-called Islamic State, or I.S. has to me been a pantomime of epic proportions, mainly because the United Nations, who you would expect to be in the driving seat, has been left sitting on the pavement.

At Least Someone Has Recognized The Danger

At Least Someone Has Recognized The Danger

It has taken a long time for action to be taken against the I.S. murdering butchers, and that is (here comes the praise bit) thanks to one man who had the fortitude to get the world moving to defeat these people. I mean of course President Obama of the United States who almost single-handedly has woken up the western and Arabic nations to actually do something to stop these people.

I.S. Tank - Thanks To The Iraqi Army

I.S. Tank – Thanks To The Iraqi Army

Before this help arrived in the shape of aircraft bombing missions in Iraq, the Iraqi’s were losing ground at a fast rate. This was mainly because their army just wasn’t up to the task of taking on the I.S. fighters. I.S. now have a lot of American weapons, tanks, armoured cars and artillery all left behind by the Iraqi army when they abandoned them and ran. This despite all the multi-million dollar training and equipment they were given by American troops before they left the country.

With Baghdad close to falling to the insurgents it was clear that something had to be done to prevent these people taking over the country. As we now know, negotiations were opened with Arab State governments and some have reluctantly joined in the fight. Aircraft from this Alliance have been bombing I.S. targets in Iraq, and now also the oil refineries that I.S. control and are using to make millions of dollars with oil sales to Syria.

But my point is, all this has come about not by any action from the U.N. but from the American President and his NATO colleagues. All the U.N. Assembly have been able to do is verbally condemn the actions of I.S.! This body of politicians who represent the entire world and are charged with maintaining world peace, have done nothing but sit in their ivory tower and talk!

Navi Pillay

Navi Pillay – UN Human Rights High commissioner

The best any of them could come up with came from Navi Pillay, U.N. high commissioner for human rights, who condemned the widespread and systematic violation of human rights perpetrated by ISIS, charging it and other armed jihadist groups of daily committing “grave, horrific human rights violations.”
There was no “Come on lads, lets pool our armies and deal with these bastards once and for all!” There was no “Let’s work together to solve this problem”! The only decision they came up with was to ‘condemn‘ what I.S. is doing. This is supposed to be the pinnacle of human cooperation and goodwill where all countries work together to solve problems throughout the world, and yet, on this, the biggest world threat since WW2 – Nothing!

I.S. Fighters

I.S. Fighters

Some may consider that overstated, but think about it! If this radical Muslim group is victorious and forms its own ‘Caliphate’, are you really so naive as to think it will stop there? Once they have triumphed, terrorists will have an entire country as a base of operations, and next in line will probably be Afghanistan as they assist the Taliban in gaining control of that country.

I.S. Even Beheads Young Children!

I.S. Even Beheads Young Children!

Already they have attracted more than 3,000 E.U. citizens to go and fight for their cause, which is of course the total supremacy of Islam across the world. Many western governments are fearful of what will happen when these radicalized youth return to their homeland. It is thought by many they will begin a wave of attacks in their home country.

American's Fighting And Dying In Afghanistan

American’s Fighting And Dying In Afghanistan

What amazes me about this whole saga is that the U.N. is not taking the lead in eradicating this major threat. They sit quietly on the sidelines and leave it up to Obama and the NATO countries to take any form of action. The one good thing that has come of this is that Arab nations have finally decided to take a stand against this threat. During the Afghanistan war fought by western nations they sat silently on the sidelines and did nothing. They did not even recognise the terrorist threat when the Taliban ruled Afghanistan and what it could mean for world peace, and look where we are now. Islamic terror groups have sprung up all across the world as they try to inflict their beliefs on every country.

British I.S. Killer

As you would expect, the Arab Nations have joined the coalition out of self-preservation, for they know full well that I.S. will not stop if they triumph in Iraq and Syria. You can bet your last dollar that if they win they will ferment trouble in many Middle East States which will eventually lead to war. The terrorist plan of sowing the seeds of insurrection have been seen in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt among many others. It is reported that militants from Indonesia and Malaysia are now fighting in Syria alongside the I.S. and who knows from where else. I.S. will train these people and send them back to their own countries to begin attacks in their homeland. There has already been major problems with terrorists in these countries and it will only get worse.

This makes it all the more imperative for the U.N. to get off its fat arse and begin getting together an international force to wipe out these people and any like-minded groups. Until that happens the trouble will go on and on and we will see no end to it. NATO and its allies may well curb the aspirations of I.S. in dominating the Middle East but that is not enough. We still have groups like Boko Haram and al Shebab in Africa, and many more in other countries who will ferment insurrection for their religious beliefs and they all need to be wiped out. The world has to let these people know in no uncertain terms that we will not stand for it, and if they continue they will be squashed like a bug.

Poor Misguided People

Poor Misguided People

One more thing I have to mention is the big demonstrations in America by the ‘Stop the War Coalition’ (STWC) this last week. The demonstration was against the bombing of I.S. targets in both Iraq and Syria, and to me this just shows how terribly naive some people can be.

Arab Nations Get The Message

I.S. – Arab Nations Get The Message

So far as they are concerned we should just let the I.S. take over Iraq, and maybe even Syria, and then spread their wings into Afghanistan and any other Arab state they feel like until the whole of the Middle East is under their control. I just wonder what it will take for these stupid people to realize the threat that is about to unfold on the world. If they think I.S. will be satisfied with these conquests they are woefully misinformed.

Have These Idiots Forgotten 9/11 Already?

Have These Idiots Forgotten 9/11 Already?

I.S. is a movement that is bent on dominating the world and making every country an Islamic State just like all the other terrorist groups. Do these people really believe they will be able to sit in their ivory tower and I.S. will never attack America? What will it take to convince them that once these people have consolidated their position in the Middle East, America will be their number one target. Perhaps when American civilians start dropping like flies after a series of terrorist atrocities like the metro attacks that I.S. are rumoured to be planning? How many people from western nations are going to die before these brainless idiots start taking notice of what is happening?

Makes Sense!

Makes Sense!

Not everyone on this planet can be gifted with common sense, but even an idiot must see that such a stance is not only stupid, but extremely dangerous. The one thing these misguided people must learn is that ignoring great danger does not make it go away, or make it any less dangerous.

This august body has been pussy-footing around with sanctions that target individuals recruiting, financing, supplying weapons, or fighting for Islamic State (IS), but has left it up to NATO to take any positive steps to defeat them.

For this international body to do no more than ‘condemn’ I.S. and ‘sanction’ a few individuals is not going to have any affect on the ambitions of the militants.

Allah u Akbar!” The U.N., just like NATO must realize that nothing short of a force of arms is going to stop these Muslim fanatics. For without doubt, if they do establish their own country (Caliphate), they will then turn on their neighbours, and eventually us!

In these desperate times when Muslim fanaticism is spreading across the globe I am very glad that someone like Barack Obama has the foresight to initiate some positive action against these people.

American Air Strike

American Air Strike

While the American contribution has been going on for several weeks in the form of air strikes, I cannot say that the U.K.’s contribution has been as bold, for they have been dropping plates, knives, forks and spoons and frying pans to the beleaguered people “so they can eat”. The Americans and French have dropped arms to the Kurds who seem to be the only people capable of standing up to these killers. It is known that in many cases the Iraqi Army soldiers have dropped their weapons and run when attacked by elements of I.S.

There can be little doubt that nothing less than a force of arms is going to rid the world of these fanatical killers. They must be wiped out to a man or they will come back and haunt us again in the future.

The U.N. - A Toothless Tiger

The U.N. – A Toothless Tiger

It bothers me that the U.N. proves yet again what a toothless tiger it really is. This body, trusted with world peace, should at the beginning have made it plain that either these people stop their activities and go home, or an international force of such size will be sent in to wipe them out. The same goes for Boko Haram, al-Shebab, al Quada, the Taliban and any other upstart group who thinks they can subjugate the people to their will.

We need serious action from the U.N., not years of ceaseless babble that does nothing for anyone.

Even Abbas Blames Hamas For The Troubles

Posted in Gaza and Hamas, Human Rights, Israel, Muslim, News, Palestine, Religion, Security Council, Terrorism, United Nations with tags , , , , on 29/08/2014 by floroy1942

Today I read something I never thought I would, but Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has actually blamed Hamas for prolonging the recent Gaza fighting. Those clever people who were bold enough to look past the newspaper headlines knew that already, but it is a surprise indeed to hear it from the lips of the Palestinian Leader.

A Very Clear Message From The Hamas Leader

A Very Clear Message From The Hamas Leader

There is little doubt that Hamas have very cleverly stood in the way of peace in the area and have, with great subtlety, used their huge propaganda machine to gain world sympathy in their fight with Israel. This is nothing new for they have done it on a regular basis over the years, and sadly, the world’s press fall for it every time.

In a TV interview with Palestinian television President Abbas  is quoted as saying: “it was possible for us to avoid all of that, 2,000 martyrs, 10,000 injured, 50,000 houses (damaged or destroyed).”

The one thing that is clear is that Hamas refused, or broke, many cease-fires before eventually accepting one that was almost identical to the original.

As I have often said before, Hamas couldn’t give a hoot for all the civilian casualties because it gets them the sympathy of the world press. Sympathy from world powers and charity organizations mean aid pouring into the country, which in turn means money to buy arms and rockets, and of course to make the Hamas leaders even greater billionaire’s than they are. Yes, you can take that to the bank!

This Is One Billion Dollars - The Hamas Leader Has 4.3 Times This Much

This Is One Billion Dollars – The Hamas Leader Has 4.3 Times This Much

All the top leaders of Hamas have siphoned off sufficient money from aid given to the cause for them all to be multi-billionaire’s. On top of that, most of the materials donated for the building of new houses etc. were used for the construction of the dozens of tunnels built by Hamas. It may be true that the people of Gaza are suffering, but one thing you can be sure of, and that is the leaders of Hamas do not, they just get richer.

If there was ever a world ranking and prize for the best scammers on the planet, Hamas would win it hands down, for they are without doubt the best in the world for hood-winking the press and public to gain world sympathy. It just surprises me they have gotten away with it for so many years.

What CAN the UN Do About North Korea?

Posted in America, Britain, Europe, Human Rights, News, North Korea, Nuclear Weapons, Politics, Security Council, United Nations with tags , , , on 18/02/2014 by floroy1942

I read with interest an article about human rights abuses in North Korea from the United Nations Human Rights Council.  I have to ask, what do they hope to achieve by this? The whole world has known about these abuses for fifty years and no-one has done anything about it. In fact, short of invading the country there is not much they can do.

Clap For Me Or You Die

Clap For Me Or You Die

North Korea has for all of its existence been closed to the rest of the world and will never change that policy, for that is the only way the likes of Kim Jong-un and his cronies can stay in power. It is utterly pointless for the UNHRC to bleat about the atrocities and say they want to take it to the Court of Human Rights, for it will avail them nothing. Kim and his henchmen know full well that to allow any foreign interference in their affairs will mean the whole system will collapse.

Michael Kirby, chairman of the independent Commission of Inquiry said, “There will be no excusing of failure of action because we didn’t know. Too many times in this building there are reports and no action. Well this is a time for action.” I for one would like to know what action he thinks the international community can take in this situation.

The North Korean Missile Capability

The North Korean Missile Capability

I doubt very much if Kim will yield to sanctions for they have not had any affect in the past. One important thing Mr Kirby should not forget is that North Korea has nuclear weapons and long range missiles. He threatened to use them last year but as we all know this turned out to be a bluff. But who is to say that given sufficient provocation he will not use them for real. The man is certainly unstable enough. Such a man will do anything to hang on to power, even if it means going to war. He may well be crazy enough to think that, if I must go down I will take the country with me. When all is said and done he would not be the first.

Staving North Korean Woman

The UN has for years been filled with empty rhetoric that has achieved nothing, and in my opinion, this is no different. When you think about it, even if all the world’s nations united behind the proposal, what could they do short of invading North Korea. Neither Kim nor his followers will take one iota of interest in a plan that wants to put him on trial for crimes against humanity. This also means just about every member of the government would be beside him in the dock for they are all just as guilty.

The UN Report is quoted as saying: “These are not mere excesses of the state; they are essential components of a political system that has moved far from the ideals on which it claims to be founded.” The UN “must ensure that those most responsible for the crimes against humanity” are held accountable, through a referral to the International Criminal Court, or a UN tribunal. As you would expect, those in control in the country deny all knowledge and refute the finding of the report. In answer to the charge they said: “The DPRK [North Korea] once again makes it clear that the ‘human rights violations’ mentioned in the so-called ‘report’ do not exist in our country.”

Those Caught Trying To Flee Are Summarily Shot

Those Caught Trying To Flee Are Summarily Shot

It cannot be denied that the North Korean people have lived with great pain and suffering their whole lives. One false word would see you dragged off to the labour camps where you would be tortured and worked to death all for the good of the state. The torture many have suffered in the camps goes far beyond anything you can imagine, for we as civilized beings would never contemplate some of the things that are everyday practice there.

Hero Worship Of Kim Jong-un

Hero Worship Of Kim Jong-un

One of the major problems is that Pyong Yang has the full backing of China as a fellow communist state. Any proposals put forward by the Council would most likely be vetoed by China, so the chances of reaching any farseeing action against North Korea would be nipped in the bud before it got started.

UNWhilst being fully behind this noble idea, for somehow the NK Regime must be brought to an end, taking everything into account I find this to be a storm in a teacup that will lie buried and forgotten within a few months, just like so many other UN reports. The UN is not called the ‘toothless tiger’ for nothing.

What Does 2013 Hold For Us?

Posted in Al Quada, America, Britain, Environment, Modern World, Security Council, Taliban, UK, United Nations, USA with tags , , , on 31/12/2012 by floroy1942

While most people seem to be looking back at the events of 2012, I wonder what the new year holds for us. The ‘End of the World’ event of December 21st 2012 seems to have passed off without any dramatic consequences and so now we stumble onward.

Arab Spring

Arab Spring

As usual the world is full of crisis in many places, least of all the Arab world where the ‘Arab Spring’ is still in full flood, and natural disasters are occurring everywhere with ever increasing frequency, but what the hell! We are still here.

Trouble Ahead

Trouble Ahead

One thing is for sure, 2013 will not be a lucky year for most people as the western countries still struggle with economic problems that just will not go away. The American ‘Fiscal Cliff’ looms closer with no compromise in sight, because as usual the Democrat and Republican political parties cannot agree on anything. In Europe people are still struggling to survive the economic downturn because those with low incomes are paying the price for the stupidity of the banks and the rich are hiding their ill-gotten gains.

Russia And China Veto Syria Action

Russia And China Veto Syria Action

Despite the apparent success of the Arab uprising in many countries of the Middle East few people are better off, and in nations like Egypt and Syria the problems are far from over as various factions vie for power. Naturally this will carry over well into the new year and maybe even the year after because Assad at least seems determined to fight to the end. The United Nations Security Council is still hamstrung by the veto’s of China and Russia so the international community can do little to stop the needless bloodshed.

al Quada Bombing

al Quada Bombing

Intimately involved in the unrest in the Middle East and further afield are many insurgent groups like al Quada who are deliberately escalating the violence for their own ends, which seem to be gaining control of a country.

Taliban Warning

Taliban Warning

The Taliban are continuing their war against fellow Muslims with an increasing number of attacks on their own people. Many would ask, Why do they attack fellow Muslims? Well, I think the answer is they wish to gain power again in Afghanistan, which they surely will when our troops leave, and the continuing bombing campaign is to reinforce their main weapon – Fear! I found it amusing when I read a news report on the negotiations that have taken place recently when the Taliban spokesman said they have “no ambition to take over the government of Afghanistan”. Well, I predict that as soon as the foreign troops leave they will do everything they can to return to power. Only time will tell.

New York City Tunnel

New York City Tunnel

During the last year the environment has been a serious area of concern for many millions of people across the world. We have had Hurricane ‘Sandy’ that ripped through the eastern seaboard of America, droughts in the Mid-West followed this winter by heavy snowfall.

Drought Impacts Food Production

Drought Impacts Food Production

Even ‘The Green and Pleasant Land’ of Britain had to suffer major drought and flooding problems in 2012. Many countries in the Far East have been battered by typhoons, drought and major flooding in areas where you would not expect it. There can be little doubt in any sane persons mind that all these weather phenomenon are the result of global warming, which the governments of the world seem powerless to stop.

In the case of rich nations, there is a distinct lack of will to trade profit for the continued existence of mankind, and the developing nations are loath to see any slow-down in their progress in catching up with the West for the same reason. In a nutshell, profit rules!

A Day At The Beach In An Over-Crowded World

A Day At The Beach In An Over-Crowded World

The world population will continue to rise at an alarming rate as it has done over the last thirty years. The fact that millions of people are dying of starvation because places like Africa cannot grow crops due to global warming is considered insignificant, just ‘situation normal’!

There can be little doubt that none of these challenges will be met in 2013 and life will continue as it did in 2012, because no single person is capable of stopping Assad, al Quada, the Taliban or climate change.

Really Necessary?

Really Necessary?

People will continue to consume resources at an ever-increasing rate, own more than one car in the family, add to the monumental number of electrical gadgets in the home, contaminate the environment and have more and more babies.

Power Consumption Gone Mad

Power Consumption Gone Mad

Most folks think it is the governments job to look after the well-being of the world, the environment and world resources etc., but they are wrong. 2013 would be a good year for us, the people, to start putting our own houses in order by drastically cutting down on our consumption of electricity, fuel and useless gadgets and start looking after the environment with simple things like refusing to use plastic bags, cups and packaging. We have to learn to forgo that extra ten cents of profit if it will help save the planet and humanity.

The Hungry Of The World

The Hungry Of The World

During the next twelve months  things will continue to deteriorate in many areas of the world for we have not yet reached the ‘Wake up Humanity’ point. When that time comes, and we see what we are doing to ourselves and our planet, I just hope it will not be too late.

Whatever happens in the future, I wish you all a wonderful, happy New Year!

Roy.
