Is the photo image, not just as horriffic as the recent Barcelona terror attack ?
There have been several media images, & T V reports on the terror attacks in Spain. Have you ever seen the same coverage of the killings carried out by the US led coalition. A recent air strike, is believed to have killed, at least 270 civilians in Mosul.
Are Iraq lives any less important than Europian lives, ?
It would appear to be the case. Surely the terror attacks in Europe should be termed, Reprisal Attacks. The West carries out continuous air strikes, drone strikes, with devastating civilian deaths, but recieves no media outcry
An atrocious attack on civilians in Barcelona, is shown daily on television. Pundits muse their theories regarding the attacks, without ever mentioning what provoked the killers to mow down innocent civilian pedestrians.
There is continuing talk of radicalisation. If Iraq, Afghanistan, or Syria, had carried out an armed invasion of Britain, with the resultant destruction of cities, deaths of hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians, then any British sympathisers living in those countries, and carrying out reprisal killings of innocent civilians, would be heralded as heroes, revenging the death & destruction in our country
What was the reasoning behind Britain’s , or the US invasion of Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria. If you believe the hype, it was to protect the populations from the killing, & repressions, carried out by the rulers of these countries. Not only have we destroyed the infrastructure, killed tens of thousands of innocent inhabitants, made millions homeless, but then complain, when these people , flee their now free counties, turning them into refugees, & subsequently seeking a new life in the West.
The Media continually has ” experts ” who say, ” we must start dealing with Global Warming ”
Firstly, we ( you & I ) have no power to deal with the inevitable. Earths history shows that in the past, there have been continuous cycles, of periods of Ice Age to Global Warming, returning to Ice Age. It is the nature of this planet.
The people, organisations, who truly decide on our future, the money people, I.M.F. Total wealth unknown but in the , hundeds of billions. The warmongering arms manufacturers,worth multi billions in the US alone, the medical pharmaceutical industry with sales of $340 billion in 2011, The pesticide manufacturers, Bayer, Monsanto,of Agent Orange fame also the now, banned PCB’s that were used in fridges and other electrical items. In 2011 figures of pesticide sales, approx. $ 40 billion
Global Warming is unstoppable, but it’s relentless march could be slowed, if it were in the interests of the above organisations. But not when authorities impose a 10% flight tax, on holiday goers, What problem does that solve ? none apart from increasing the profits of the holiday flight industry.
Listening to Politicians talking in Parliament, about not bringing sufficient numbers of refugee children to this country, but they all ignore the real villians.
Not one word of condemnation for those who caused this refugee problem. The armourments industry, the greedy, oil chasing companies, the financial bankers, I.M.F. the puppet politicians who do the bidding of these controlling, profit chasing, true policy making rulers of our lives.
The invasions of Iraq, Afghanistan, were not neccessary, they posed no military threat to us, but they did have one valuable commodity, Oil.
Much was said about the atrocities of the rulers of these countries, but have you heard the same condemnation of Saudi Arabia, whose regime is no diffferent, double standards because the Saudis are our “friends” They carry out stoning, decapitations, chopping off of limbs, subjugation of women, imprisonment for criticism of the ruling classes and their policies, but not one word against these atrocities
We are continually sending millions of our taxes in aid to repair the problems that were caused. If politicians were to dictate that the evil, true causers of these tradgedies were made to foot the cost of this aid from their profits, our tax money could be better spent here on the needs of the people who raised the taxes in the first place.
A few voices in Parliament do speak out against the atrocities , Jeremy Corbyn for one, shame the majority of his colleagues don’t follow his example, and how he is villified by the establishment media.
Oh well, if all else fails, we can always blame “Brexit”, it’s a handy scapegoat for anything negative.
Vilified by his own Establishment and all Western Media, what are they scared of ? . Is it because of his strong will and financial independence, or his, Boris Johnson, type,blundering blithering, cock up cockamamie ideas ?
Compared to his predecessors, so far, his biggest crime, is speaking, without thinking, many disagree with his comments, also feel offended, while not agreeing with many of his ideas, I preferred his approach to that of Hilary Clinton, the Establishment’s, status quo choice.
Looking at those who went before,
Obama, ” I will close Guantanamo Bay by the end of the year” that was 8 years ago, it’s still open, several attempts to tighten gun laws,after 200 school shootings,2013-2016, failed. Police shooting unarmed, hands raised, black people. Promises to failing, deprived areas of America, poverty, mass home evictions continuing to increase.Racial tensions continuing to increase’ The greed of Wall Street’s money grabbers, still as greedy as ever, nothing done.
Syria, firstly, covert C.I.A. intervention, training, financing,and arming [ anti government rebels] terrorists by another name, later to morph into ISIS. A proxy war between Russia’s Putin, friend of President Sadat, causing mass killings and destruction of the country infrastructure and cities, tens of thousands made homeless.
All in all Obama failed to show strenghth or leadership of any kind, just a puppet controlled by those really in charge
George W. Bush, suspicions over did he actually beat Gore,to win the Presidential election, or was it media manipulated ?
During his term, gives podium speeches, forgetting which city or State he’s in , some slate him for alcohol abuse, continuing throughout his life
Invades Afghanistan, Iraq, killing untold, tens of thousands of civilians,
Presides over America’s longest economic recession since WW2
In 1976, arrested for Driving Under the Influence, pleaded guilty, license suspended
Miltary career, in the late 60’s, granted pilots license, despite low pilot’s apptitude tests and poor attendence, claims that he was shown favouritism because of his fathers influence.In 1972 , suspended from flying, then honourably discharged !!!
2001, Bush opposes the Kyoto Protocol, expressing doubts about Global Waring and it’s causes
Bill Clinton ” I did not have sex with that woman ” BJ’s obviously don’t count !! Husband of Hillary Clinton
In 1998 impeached over the Monica Lewinsky affair. On the plus side he was strong on advocating Gay Rights, employing openly gay members to his staff
There were accusations of financial mis-dealings, involving his wifes company
Part of the smear campaign against Trump, has been his personal wealth and tax juggling, although he has pledged to forgo his Presidential salary . .All 3 previous Presidents are multi millionairs, as were many previous Presidents, can’t remember them being attacked for their wealth.
Lyndon B Johnson
Accused in his 1948 Senate bid, of election rigging, he also supported anti union curbs. When Senate leader, he would bully cajole, intimidate fellow senaters who disagreed with his views, dissenters were sent on NATO trips, causing them to be absent when voting took place, and therefor unable to oppose him.
His vice presidential nomination, there are doubts and accusations regarding his nomination and ultimate election
Resigned as President in 1974, in order to avoid impeachment and removal from office because of what became known as Watergate, with all the following cover ups and lies.
His vice president ‘s resignation and subsequent conviction for money launderinng,bribery and tax evasion. Nixon himself paying almost 1/2 million dollars in back taxes after allegations were made as to his earnings disclosures
All of these aforementioned Presidents, made several positive decisions and contributions, they could not be said to be “all bad” Trump is no different apart from the continuing, constant media attacks
When you hear “child refugee” sympathy is natural. Every news bulletin media personallity continue to use this expression. The first pictures yesterday & today, show three “child” refugees entering Britain.
Definition of “CHILD” young person who has not reached puberty.
In October 1966, tragedy struck the Welsh mining village of Aberfan.
Around 9-15 am after several days of heavy rain, a mountain of colliery spoil tip, [loose rock & mining spoil waste} broke up & slid at high speed down to the school at the base of the man made mountain, killing 116 children & 28 adults
Although warnings had been voiced in 1963, by local authorities, of the potential hazards, these were ignored, possibly due to the high costs of making these man made mountains safe for the village below.
Naturaly there were denials of blame from the National Coal Board, who eventially accepted full responsibility.
From about 1910 the waste deposits from mining, had been dumped on the Mynidd Merthyr, above the village.Over the years millions of cubic metres of excavated mining debris had accumulated.
The Coal Board chairman, Lord Robens. initially made misleading statements regarding the disaster.Robens told a TV reporter the disaster could not have been averted, as it was due to unknown water springs beneath the tip, although these springs were clearly marked on maps
From humble beginings,leaving school at 15, his career took off when he was made director at the age of 22 of the Manchester & Salford Co-operative Society,he was also a union official and later an elected Labour Member of Parliament
This morning the BBC showed excerts from a show remembering this tragic disaster, but the newscaster reported it simply as a mining disaster, ommiting the true facts
I am not a Brexitair. I did not vote “Brexit”. On my vote slip, the options were, remain or leave. I voted to leave. The scare mongering continues, Britain will collapse when we leave, commerce will cease, manufacturing will have no one to make contracts with. Rubish!! Until 1972, France vetoed our wishes to join, they did’nt want us in. Yes industry will have to re-negotiate deals, but on a much wider scale, worldwide, as opposed to the narrow “only within Europe” restrictions as at present, we won’t have to get permission to deal outside the E.U. The world will open to our exports.
The World exists beyond this small portioned map
What a load of bollocks.
Britain has won so many “Golds”in the Olympics ,because of money spent. Latest BBC news reports.
Truth is , it’s because Russia has been banned
We would’nt have won Gymnastics, Poll vault,Rings,or the floor, if the Russians were competing.The proxy war between Russia & America continues.Syria is the latest example.
Back in the late 80’s , the Taliban were written in British media & TV, as heroes, with the “nasty Russian jets, bombing these heroes”
When it’s American & British jets, doing the bombimg, 10 years later, the Taliban are “Terrorists”
Anyone who remembers 10 years ago, can recognise this crap as the brain-washing ,typical Media Bullshit it truly is.
Oh, it’s because of drugs.British cycling recently,drugs disqualification. American track field racers, later disqualified because of drug enhancing use a few years ago.Fuck off media bullshit.
Scotland voted to remain part of United Kingdom. They were aware of forthcoming E.U.vote.
The United Kingdom, voted leave E.U.
Scotland, you made your bed, so lie in it
