LOL Are you any relation to Richmal Cromptons 'Violet Elizabeth', my sensitive little flower?
If coming face to face with reality has that affect on you, it's just as well you're not in Homs
Like Road Hog, you're lost if the rug is pulled away from under your Islamic prop, al Jazeera
SPECTOR was born in 1930 and lives with his threadbare cat and boxes of Boys Own newspapers.
B.O.P. was a serious paper with information on the Boer War ... " In the world of B.O.P., because boys are identified not so much with but rather as the nation, they are in effect entreated to fight for themselves."
The Chinese economy is growing at a rate of 8-10% per year, and with that growth Chinese oil consumption grows by 7.5% per year, seven times faster than the US. An oil embago on Iran! don't make me laugh. China and India could buy us all out.
As an aside, a couple of years ago we started to have problems sourcing tyres for our [large] plant machines. We used to pick up the phone and within days the tyre would arrive, these days a three month wait is not unusual because everything is being shipped out to China. Three or four years ago we were paying 2k a tyre, today it's 5k for the same tyre and you have to buy the best because the cheap stuff is in shreds after 12 months, however back to thread.
Israel will do it's own thing, I'm convinced that one day soon we will have our TV interupted by a newsflash to say that Israel has just attacked Iran, as Egypt knows, it's what Isreal does.
It is not racist to be concerned about immigration.
He seems to misunderstand, that I don't agree with Western countries attacking other sovereign countries, just because they want oil rights or to impose a central bank. Especially if the current leader/dictator (call him what you like) happens to operate a fairly secular nation and certainly keeps the jihadies/Islamists in check.
BTW Spector, please don't reply to my post, as I'm not going to read your reply or respond to it.
You don't read my posts properly - or any thing else for that matter - that's why you'll never understand anything.
I don't 'misunderstand' , you believe the secular tyrants in some Arab countries are, or have been, keeping the Islamic militants in check,and therefore should be supported.
Apart from being unethical, it produces the worst of both worlds, divided unstable government of split loyalty between state and religion, as epitomised by Pakistan, who can't be relied on to meet her treaty obligations. Far better to deal with what the majority of it's citizens want, and should it be Islamic militants, at least we'd know where we stand , and can deal with it.
It's your nonsense about 'Western countries', 'oil' etc, as reasons for our humanitarian intervention I object to, it's playing the Islamic propaganda game of 'divide and rule' - wittingly or unwittingly - and you admitted some months ago that your first choice of media source when searching for the 'truth' was al Jazeera! LOL .
BTW, don't keep telling me what to do sonny, I'm aware you don't 'read' my posts, and I can't count how many times you've replied to them, apparently having only peered at the screen through your fingers from behind the settee.
