Blatant Russian Logic

 

The defence of the young man who had killed both his parents argued

that he had become a poor orphan and so did not need to be punished,

but protected and consoled.

 

Mr Putin in defence of Mr Assad, who killed a quarter of a million men,

women and children and made refugees out of ten times as many, argues

that the only one who can stop the killing is poor Mr Assad, who does not

need to be punished but instead is in need of urgent assistance and care.

Monty Python Redux

 

Whereupon these Taliban, Al Qaeda and Isis fun guys were having a party

and spontaneously sang and whistled:

 

 

Things will turn out for the best

Always look on the bright side of…. death

 

 

(Whistle)

 

 

Yes, always look on the bright side of…. death

 

 

Tedumm

Tedumm

And their audience just died!

 

ISIS = EBOLA

 

Speaks for itself

 

Lose Badly And Ye Shall Win!

 

The Palestinians complain that unless they attack, nothing happens for years,

nobody paying attention to them, and a sort of condescending and highly patronising,

Israeli occupying de facto colonialism sets in, for maybe 50 years or more.

 

 

And they are right. This seems to suit among others the Likud party, just fine.

 

 

So the Palestinians will attack and attack, even though they haven’t a hope in hell to

defeat an Israel screaming bloody murder, and never failing to grossly over-react.

To wit, 2000 Gaza civilian deaths and total obliteration of its structures over what

started as the idiotic, cruel murder of 3 of its teenagers by rogue Palestinian nationalists.

The added rockets also seem to do little, except to help Israel cry wolf.

 

All of which is provoking worldwide condemnation of Israel, and may lead to painful

 isolation, and, believe it or not ultimately drive it towards a meaningful, not cosmetic,

peace effort leading to a free Palestinian State.

 

So don’t expect today’s fires to dwindle any time soon. And let’s see who the really smart ones are.

The Sorry Story Of Territory and Domination

 

Apes cannot shoot down airplanes and have no names like Vladimir or Bashar, but are just as primitive, plus sulking, brooding, vindictive and finally… inferiority-complexed, attacking not out of immediate hunger but ultimately out of petty, irrational fear.

Soldier’s Ire

In Africa, civil or otherwise, war is defined as the sad situation whereby people who don’t know each other at all, will kill each other on behalf of those who know each other well!

 

And can you imagine a cruel, crazy French president giving orders to bomb large parts of Paris to destroy the ‘enemy’, simply because he is no longer tolerated? Too insane to contemplate, isn’t it? Yet that is what is happening in Damascus and Aleppo, because pilots in Syria don’t think twice before stepping into their cockpits and bomb their own brothers, sisters and their lovely kids to death. Then fly back to pick up a medal or two, have tea and eat their falafel before picking up their own child from kindergarten, with a smile.

 

“Daddy’s back, little Ahmed! Did you have fun today?”

 

It is a known dictum that pilots, like soldiers, are paid not to think. It was so in Japan and in Germany not long ago. It still is so in Syria, where primitives bomb their own with glee it seems and upon demand. But no longer in Ukraine where his personal guards abandoned a morally corrupt president, and the army and police made it known they would ignore his demands if asked to slaughter innocents to keep him on top.

 

So then let there be this warning to hungry autocrats and blinkered generals: think twice and abandon force as a political tool, be inclusive whatever the conflict is and deal with it effectively and peacefully, for in ever larger parts of the world the days of the non-thinking soldier is over, one who no longer shoots when you say so, whether you like it or not and indirectly, by not shooting becoming the real ruler of the realm.  

 

The Great Kalashnikov

Rampant life, kills life. The food chain cleans up and controls the numbers.

Humans escaped the food chain by the evolution of their wits and have only viruses, and related or unrelated diseases to deal with.

Plus car, train and plane accidents, and the Assad and Himmler method of population control, of course.

Insults!

Does it not occur to those Taliban who ordered the assassination of a 14 year old girl for having insulted Islam, that the greatest insult to Islam… is them!?

 

 

The Death Of Certainty

The problem with fervent believers is they emulate the wrong God.

 

Either this or they mistake His identity.

 

Ramadan is when more Muslims kill more Muslims, constantly, massively, in an organised way, from Pakistan to Iraq and from Syria to Libya, than anybody else. Yet demand from the rest of us… that we respect them.

 

As for the others, if there were a Messiah and he was to come back, he would probably be considered a deeply suspicious character, and get shot a thousand times over.

 

So that Allah and Jehovah better stay home, they’re better off where they are, and leave self-righteous punishment to mankind, being so very, very good at it.

 

Though the smart at least entertain some doubts, when the primitives remain forever certain of what they’re doing: killing usually the easy way forward.

 

But forward, exactly…. where to?

 

And once the gods finally turn their back on all men, does doubt not mean life at last?

 

The best of all deals, probably?

Damascus Philantropy

There was a photograph of Mrs Assad taking her luxurious shoes off to whack a Badminton shuttle around during an event in support of the Syrian participants in the 2012 London Special Olympics.

 

I thought this was very touching, since her husband is in the business of killing Syrian civilians, in the process producing thousands of paraplegics.

 

Ah yes, those Arab Nanny States…..

 

Oh, and her hair looked beautiful!
