Wars are happening all through Africa, Syria and the Far East and it is mostly to do with terrorists. How are going to stop them? The United Nations should step in and end it all so that the world can return to peace. But they do nothing about it except discuss the terrorists.

During the Korean War the UN stepped in and put an end to the fighting, but now they just sit an their backsides and do nothing. Why do we have the United Nations? For they do nothing except talk and take no action. It is time we had a new leader of the U.N. who could do something about this. There are 193 members of the U.N. and no-one does anything about the terrible wars going on in Syria and Africa, and also the Far East. We need the membership to do something about it.

We need to collect soldiers from different countries to go in and stop this many wars around the world. The United Nations can stop these wars going on and save a lot of people from death. It is not so hard to gather soldiers from various countries and let them do their job. but all they do is talk talk talk and let the terrorists kill people. We are not stopping them from killing other people, on the contrary the U.N. is ignoring them.

We have to get many armies the engage the enemy wherever they are, and to stop killing innocent civilians. At the moment the U.N. is a shambles for they do nothing except put some soldiers near the borders to stop the terrorists. But most of them are not within rifle range of the terrorists and they cannot stop them, and some die.

The U.N. must wake up and do something about all the trouble across the world. For if they do nothing and many more people will get killed and for what, they are innocent civilians.

The Refugee Crisis

5def63e92068eeac6e6c4be91ce1c625--emergency-food-african-historyCurrently there are 6 million people without enough food and water, and many nations are being overrun with refugees from various countries. Among these are Europe, African countries, Bangladesh, Myanmar and many other country’s in the Far East. In Africa nations are very slow in providing these people with food and water for them to survive, and we can see the death toll will be great.

The weather patterns have changed around the world to such an extent, due to Global Warming, that it is impossible to grow food in a great part of Africa and many other places around the world. You can see daily pictures and newsreels of people dying from a lack of food and water.

Many are Muslims escaping the terror of Islamic State terrorists who are spreading across the world. They kill indiscriminately anyone who gets in their way, and this includes fellow Muslims. They burn villages and towns and the sad thing is, no-one is doing much to stop them. For years we have had the ongoing war in Syria and the surrounding areas, but the progress is very slow. In areas such as the Far East the pace is much slower, and the governments do not make a determined effort to wipe these people out.

imagesThe fight against these Islamist’s has been going on for more than ten years, but if the United Nations had got together a multi-national force it would have been over in months.

Ever since the end of the Korean War the U.N. has sat on its backside and done nothing but talk talk talk. They have not made any concrete steps to tackle this global problem, but just ‘condemn’ with words the actions of Islamic State. It is not enough!

All across the world people are dying at the hands of these monsters who want to rule the world. They will never achieve this because so many countries are against them and Islam. Sadly it does not stop them from trying to gain the upper hand.

As I see it, this war will go on for a good many years if some positive action is not taken against them. Even in Europe we see people die through attacks by Muslim converts. You will notice that those Islamic State members who infiltrated Europe do not take part in the action themselves, but convert and train many Muslims who have lived here for years into carrying out these acts of terror.

Many Muslims living in Europe do not openly support Islamic State, but secretly they would like to see Europe as a Muslim nation. In comparison to their homeland they live in luxury in Europe, but if the whole of Europe suddenly came under the control of the Muslims, the standards of living would rapidly deteriorate until it became like the land they had come from. The Europeans would suffer hardship as never before and become a target for them.

images (1)Everyone knows of the Sharia Law, and we would see Europeans being hung from lampposts, stoned to death, or given a merciless beating, and this includes women. All Westerners would have to abide by Sharia Law, so would you like your wife to wear a burka?

I have to say that the world has become a hellhole in the last twenty or so years. Life was so much better when I was a child.

Say Goodbye To Elephants and Rhinoceros

Posted in America, Britain, Conservation, Environment, European Union, Nature, News, Torture, UK, USA with tags , , , , on 25/09/2016 by floroy1942

The fact that we are destroying our world is becoming more and more evident, and I don’t mean the atmospheric, land and ocean pollution. From reports out today it would seem that we are destroying the world’s animals too at an ever increasing rate.

The Decline In The Elephant Population

The Decline In The Elephant Population

In particular I am writing about elephants and rhinoceros in Africa where 30% have been destroyed in the last seven years. If this keeps up, in 15 years time there will be none left, and like so many other species, they will disappear into history.

Whatever you like to think about this, mankind is the most destructive force on the planet, and taking that into consideration the planet will not survive must longer, or at least we won’t.

Poachers At Work

Poachers At Work

These animals are killed for their horns which some Far Eastern countries like China, Indonesia and Vietnam, believe can be made into a miracle cure for all sorts of diseases. How they arrived at this conclusion is beyond me, for none of it is true and science has proved it. When you take it down to the bare bones, its all about profit and making money.

Walking through the tourist areas of Far Eastern cities you find sculptures carved from the horns of elephants and rhino’s, all to attract sales from the gullible tourists. Buying such things just assists the destruction of these wild animals.

We have lost 42 species of animals and birds in just the 20th century, including the Barbary Lion, various species of tiger, the Kamchatka bear, Dawson’s caribou, the Greenland reindeer plus a host of birds and insects. They are all gone never to return.

Some people call this progress, but the tragic reality is that we are destroying our world at an ever-increasing pace. The sad thing is, nobody cares. I am in my latter years, but nobody thinks about what our children and their children will face with the legacy we are leaving them.

A Rhino De-Horned But Left Alive

A Rhino De-Horned But Left Alive

One by one the animals and birds of the world are disappearing and the rate has increased ten-fold in the last 100 years. Not only that, but we are poisoning our atmosphere, the ground, and the oceans at an ever increasing rate. What does that say for the future of this planet and our children?

Billed as the largest gathering in the 43-year history of the convention, the 17th Conference of the Parties will see more than 2,500 delegates from more than 180 countries come together in Johannesburg. What will they achieve? In my estimation, very little. We have had these talking shops so many times in the past, but all have achieved nothing on the grand scale of things.

In my opinion, the only way to put an end to this mindless shooting of elephants and rhino’s for profit is for all countries to make it a capital offence. When caught you will be hung.

An Ivory Carving

An Ivory Carving

The governments of the Far East must close down all these ‘doctors’ who prescribe ointments and such made from tusks and ensure they never practice again. All tourist shops selling items made from ivory should have their stock confiscated and destroyed.

I know many will think this is impossible, and it probably is, but we must do something to save these species of animals. Once all the elephants and rhino’s have disappeared what will these people turn to next? Your guess is as good as mine.

Breast Ironing – The Barbaric Torture Of Young Girls

Posted in America, Britain, Child Abuse, Children, England, Health, Immigrants, News, Parenting, Torture with tags , , , , on 10/04/2016 by floroy1942

I have come to the conclusion that in many countries some people are still barbaric beyond description. It is unbelievable that in this day and age countries still hold on to torture as a way of life. I wrote some time ago about the genital mutilation of young girls by Muslim families, but now I discovered that there are other forms of torture that are traditional.

Breast Ironing Using A Hot Rock

Breast Ironing Using A Hot Rock

One of these is breast ironing which is prevalent in some African countries and is carried out by immigrants in Britain today. The general idea is to prevent the natural growth of breasts in young girls, and involves them having their breasts beaten, burnt and massaged in order to stop them developing.

The reason for this is to make young girls and women less attractive to the opposite sex so they can concentrate on school work. Really, of all the excuses I have ever heard this must be one of the most ridiculous.

One young woman said, “They put a spatula on the fire and then they press it on the breast, and yes, it hurts. Then it goes weak, it’s like melting, fat melting and you can feel the breast going back.” Once this is completed they often have their breasts bound tightly to prevent any further growth.

All this torture just so they can concentrate on their school lessons, and prevent them being attractive to young boys? What sort of animals are these people?

Tightly Bound To Prevent Natural Growth

Tightly Bound To Prevent Natural Growth

Experts are of the opinion that such torture can lead to cysts, abscesses, and even breast cancer. Geraldine Yenwo, the founder of Came Women and Girls Development Organisation said, “A lot of them have inverted nipples, they’re not able to breastfeed their children. Emotionally and psychologically, your self-esteem is very badly affected. Physically, some of them have one large and one flattened breast.”

Conservative MP Jake Berry is requesting the government make such actions illegal, and so it should be. Those responsible for such acts should be locked away for a very long time, for this type of torture does not belong in the modern age, much the same as genital mutilation.

What Can Often Be The End Result

What Can Often Be The End Result

I know that there are many backward civilizations in the world, but to intentionally mutilate your children seems to me beyond bizarre, and it makes you wonder why this sort of tradition ever became ‘normal’ with some people.

People Die While Politicians Argue

The Challenge - Are Our Politicians Up To It?

The Challenge – Are Our Politicians Up To It?

How much longer must the people wait before the politicians take the inevitable action to stop the terrorist groups indiscriminately killing across the world? How long must the people of Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Nigeria and the other 139 countries in the world accept the death and destruction caused by terrorist groups operating in their countries? How much longer will the world’s politicians make excuses for not initiating decisive action together to wipe out these people?

Questions, questions, questions, but sadly no answers from those we have voted in to govern us, and look after the security of the country we live in. For far too long we have heard of the atrocities carried out by groups like Islamic State and Boko Haram, and innocent people are dying or fleeing daily.

Not A Difinitive Answer

Air Strikes – Not A Definitive Answer

True, an international coalition led by the USA, which includes five Arab states and several European countries are carrying out bombing raids on Islamic State positions in Iraq and Syria, but even the military know this is not enough. It has failed to stop the atrocities carried out by these sub-humans. I was going to say ‘animals’, but that would be an insult to animals everywhere.

Meanwhile Europe is being overwhelmed by immigrants fleeing the fighting, which is eventually going to cause many problems. Our politicians are busy talking about the crisis but its all hot air and no action.

David Cameron is the only public figure to actually say out loud that we need to attack the source of the problem and thereby stop the mass exodus from countries like Syria and Iraq. As you would expect, not one person took any notice of what he said, but he is right!

The UN - Useless

The UN – Useless

The United Nations has said and done nothing to solve this world crisis. All we hear from them is complaints from the UNHCR about how some countries are treating refugees fleeing to Europe!

This is a body formed to ensure world peace for crying out loud, but what do they do, keep their mouths shut, do nothing, and pick up their fat paychecks at the end of every month. We might as well fill the UN with fat pigs and let them roam around the building, for they would be about as useful as these incompetent idiots.

And Still They Come

And Still They Come

It is time for someone to stand up and call the nations of the world together to deal with this Islamic Jihad threat once and for all. Only when they are all dead will this threat disappear, and then the refugees can return home.

What do we have to look forward to otherwise? Years of wasted effort in fighting these people, thousands more dead, and several million refugees all wanting to come to Europe now that the precedent has been set, leading to the total destruction of the European economy.

We have had enough of silence from the UN, it is now time for positive action Ban Ki Moon!

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.

Ever Heard Of FGM?

Posted in Afghanistan, Child Abuse, England, Europe, Human Rights, Immigrants, Justice, Muslim, News, Police with tags , , , , on 06/02/2015 by floroy1942

Its a fair bet that women will understand the initials FGM far more than men, mainly because it concerns them even though it is carried out by men. Confused? Never mind, FGM stands for female genitalia mutilation and is carried out in many countries to female children and adults.

FGM In Africa

FGM In Africa

Sometimes the reason for this is religious, and in other cases because it’s tradition, but either way the victim has no say in what happens to them. It is generally carried out on infants and girls up to the age of fifteen, but is occasionally inflicted on women after childbirth or marriage.

FGM In Practice

FGM In Practice

The actual procedure calls for the removal of the clitoris or labia, the narrowing of the vaginal opening; or piercing, scraping and burning of the genital area. This is more often than not carried out without anaesthetics, using knives, scissors, razor blades and, in some instances, even shards of glass. Normally the patient will be held down by three or four women while the ‘practitioner’ carries out the procedure.

To say that this is barbaric is without doubt an understatement, but the practice is widespread and not restricted to any single country or religion. It is most prevalent in Africa but also in Muslim countries of the Middle East, India, Pakistan and Afghanistan, but it happens in Christian countries also.

In many other countries it is down to pure tradition. The practice of female genital mutilation dates back at least 2,000 years and was used in ancient Egypt as a sign of distinction amongst the aristocracy. In some cultures, it is valued as a rite of passage from childhood to womanhood but others believe it is a means of preserving a girl’s virginity until marriage. In most countries that still practice it FGM is a pre-requisite for marriage, with marriage being vital to a woman’s social and economic survival.

Within the Muslim faith Imams have been known to say that a woman does not have the right to enjoy sex with a man, although there is nothing to substantiate this in the Qur’an. They say a woman is born for the sole purpose to serve her master and bear his children.

FGM-women-who-have-been-cut-1024x887It is estimated that around 680,000 women and children have suffered this in Europe alone, and world-wide estimates by UNICEF put the figure at 125 million.

Statistics indicate that the United Kingdom, with 137,000 known cases, has twice as many such cases as any other country in Europe. France comes next with 61,000 cases followed by Italy, Holland, Germany, Austria and Belgium. These mutilations are restricted solely to immigrant families.

The tragic part about this whole affair is the lack of legal action against the perpetrators of this vile act. Only recently Britain made its first ever prosecution against British doctor Dhanuson Dharmasena, but he was this week acquitted of carrying out FGM on a new mother in London.

Dr Dhanuson Dharmasena

Dr Dhanuson Dharmasena

At his trial it came out that Doctor Dharmasena had to put in a stitch to stop a woman bleeding after emergency labour. The woman had previously suffered FGM when she was a child in Somalia. The doctors lawyer made the following statement: “My client strongly believes this case was nothing more than a show trial – an effort by the CPS to regain some confidence after failing to bring a prosecution despite FGM laws being in place since 1985.”

However, it would seem that the law in Europe is finally waking up to this scandal. European Commission figures to January 2012 show that in France 40 men have so far been charged, with six in Spain, two in Italy and Sweden, and the Netherlands and Denmark with one each. Pitifully few when you consider the number of children and women who have been brutalized.

Now why you may ask have so few been charged, well, in the UK the problem is that the police do not investigate such cases. The UK Parliament’s Home Affairs Committee (HAC) said,  “The police and others told us two factors contributed to the small number of investigations — a reliance on victims or witnesses to report to the police, which they are unlikely to do, and the failure of health, education and social care professionals to refer cases to the police where they suspect FGM to have taken place.”

One would imagine with this mutilation being as common as it is both the Social Services, Health Authorities and the Police would do more to bring charges against the individuals responsible. Any doctor who finds evidence of this practice during a routine examination should be duty bound to report it.

Tools Of The Trade

Tools Of The Trade

The HAC said in its report,  “A key feature of the French system is the use of regular medical check-ups on children up to the age of six, which includes examination of the genitals. The system is not mandatory, though receipt of social security is dependent on participation. Furthermore, girls identified as being at risk of FGM are required to have medical examinations every year, and whenever they return from abroad.”

It would appear that France has got its act together before any other European nation. We can only hope that more will follow their lead and put an end to this vile practice.
