NK: The Horror Continues

And still it goes on ….. innocent children massacred …… unbelievable.

Isugans Past & Present

I find it hard to forgive China for supporting this disgusting regime.

Now Kim Jong-Un executes his late uncle’s entire family to prevent ‘mutiny’ – including women, children and the ambassadors to Cuba and Malaysia

Sources told the Yonhap News Agency it is unclear exactly when the family members were killed, but they are believed to have been put to death after Jang’s execution on December 12.

‘Some relatives were shot to death by pistol in front of other people if they resisted while being dragged out of their apartment homes,’ a source told Yonhap.Among those allegedly executed were Jang’s sister Jang Kye-Sun, her husband and Ambassador to Cuba Jon Yong-Jin and Jang’s nephew and Ambassador to Malaysia Jang Yong-Chol, as well as his two sons.

The children and grandchildren of Jang’s two brothers are also said to have been killed. One source told the news agency, which is publicly…

The British Political Soap Opera

“The shadow chancellor will make a “binding fiscal commitment” that a Labour government will balance the books as soon as possible after 2015 and by May 2020 at the latest.” (“The Daily Telegraph”)

WOW!! A “binding fiscal commitment”!! That sounds suspiciously like a Brownite “pledge”, even a “reinforced and binding pledge”.

And what will the “binding” consist of? Which gruesome punishment will be meted out to Balls et al if they DON’T balance the budget? 10 hours of HOC Community service – serving the tea or something? And of course if you behave yourselves for the first 5 hours you get off the second 5.

And isn’t it miraculous that Balls spend 13 years toadying up to Brown when the idea of balancing the budget would have been treated as preposterously stupid?

“WHAT!!! Live within the country’s means???? Not vastly over-borrow to bribe the people with their own money to vote for us?? ARE YOU INSANE, BALLS?”

It really is funny how one era’s perceived wisdom becomes the next generation’s execrable lunacy – and vice versa of course, which at least gives me some hope.

Of course, it is still possible that Balls still secretly BELIEVES in wildly overspending and borrowing but that he is just saying this to impress the voters, isn’t it? I mean, that COULD be possible, couldn’t it? Or do we trust Balls’s integrity on this one – he really HAS had a conversion? (just a joke ….)

It would be funny if not so pathetic, but it does remind me of Mr Francois “Pantsdown” Hollande. Before his election he said: “Fie with austerity! I spit on it! Out, Out begone – we will undo Sarkozy’s evil work trying to prevent economic collapse.”

But as soon as he was elected he carried on like Sarkozy only with the ADDITION of over SEVENTY NEW OR INCREASED TAXES!!

And NOW, after 18 months thought in between the shagging sessions, he has come up with THATCHERITE policies about cutting the state, reducing taxes and costs to employers!!

Form lunatic socialist to responsible Thatcherite in 18 months, just like Balls!!

And Milliband ADMIRES Hollande!!

You REALLY could not make these people up, which is why your average pleb is sick to death with the lot of them.

PS Cameron’s “pledge” re an EU referendum has been sunk by Labout and the Lib-Dem Lords! WOW!

A) What the heck are “Lords” doing in our constitution anyway? Unelected cronies on 300 GBP a day attendance money? Turn up, turn up – get your free public money here while voting down the elected HOC!!”And Mandelscum is one of your Lords! That REALLY is an insult.

B) Labour don’t trust the people much do they! “WOT! Give the idiot mob a vote? YOU ARE INSANE! We know best.”

Let’s have “A Dose of Swiss”

Syrian Update

“The Daily Mail” has published photos
of what the UN says are Assad’s victims.

My collage of the same photos.

What is going on in Syria is a sickening and shameful indictment of the free world, and the British Labour Party’s glee at thwarting the destruction of some of Assad’s air forces and thus almost certainly forcing him to negotiate was disgusting.

The proceedings in Montreux are a total farce. Assad will never go until forced to and he will never be forced to by fatuous yapping at the UN. How can you negotiate with mass-murderers? When Hess came to “negotiate”, we locked him up for ever and continued to try to kill Hitler – at enormous human cost.

It would have taken courage to give the go-ahead for a US airstrike, but of course the gutless Labour party has no idea what courage is. Not a single one even had the guts to stand up to the surreally-useless Brown in an election contest in this so-called democracy. David Milliband deserves his political oblivion for his lack of courage, which of course gave us his creepy brother, someone who has never done a real day’s work in his life, or created one pfennig of wealth for the country.

Yes, intervention would be complex and dangerous – and this is part of the lunatic Shia-Sunni war, but non-intervention has resulted in Assad having a free hand to commit mass-murder and serial crimes against humanity, aided and abetted by Russia, with its corrupt and mafiosi-type state apparatus.    

In any case, humans are usually involved in decisions about lesser evils: in WWII we were even allies of the USSR, whose murder of TENS OF MILLIONS of people before the war was well documented – though this did not prevent Milliband Senior from being a fervent fan of Stalin.

“Intervention is bad”? Tell that to the Iranians, who have thousands of men fighting the rebels. Now we have Obama making love with Iran at the same time as Iran fundamentalist troops are helping Assad to torture, starve, bomb, gas and exterminate ordinary Syrians. The moral gutlessness of the free world is sickening.

“Rebels”? The original rebels were ordinary Syrians. As nobody helped them in any significant way, AQ got in on the act. And Assad is apparently in league with AQ, bombing the “rebels” but not AQ, who are in the meantime training suicide bombers to blow up London.

Historians will look back at all this in disbelief.

The Syrian Bloodbath

collage

Systematic killing evidence in Syria is ‘tip of iceberg’
International bodies say evidence of execution of
11,000 detainees in regime jails comes from just one area of Syria.

“Can evidence of mass killings in Syria end the inertia? Only with Putin’s help.”

A) The evidence is sound, but nothing new. Assad’s role as a family-dynasty, mass-murdering gangster thug is well-known. He also passed a red line by gassing a large number of people in this very war. However, with a bowl of jelly in the White House, nothing seems likely to change.

Oh, we might supply some more “non-lethal material” to the FSA to help them die more slowly from their wounds.

B) Putin regrets the passing of the USSR, the regime that murdered 16,000 Poles in Katyn Forest and tried to blame it on the Nazis. The only thing to be concerned about with Putin is exactly when he is going to send the Red Army over the border to reclaim his lost Empire.

The original rebellion was by more or less ordinary Syrians fed up with living under brutal fascism. In the 30s, even left-wing intellectuals applauded those who went to fight in the international brigades against fascist Franco, but now we are made of much limper-wristed stuff.

OF COURSE, with the Russians and Iranians supplying LETHAL weapons and Iran even sending thousands of men, the FSA was countered, and since then the extremely nasty AQ has got in on the act, which was TOTALLY PREDICTABLE.

Now there are reports that Assad is even secretly AIDING the AQ lunatics (along with the Taliban possibly the only element on the planet nastier than Assad’s regime) against what is left of the FSA.

The free world should stand up more against dictators. We can’t do EVERYthing, but what we have done has been pathetic and unbelievably STUPID. It has not only helped to prop up a truly murderous regime but also allowed the training by AQ of jihadis who will one day soon blow themselves up in Central London and elsewhere.

The “Peace Conference” is a fatuous waste of time. No “negotiations” are possible as long as either side thinks it can win. Given that Assad has unlimited arms from Russia, support from Iran and a total lack of serious reaction from the free world, he will clearly think he can win.

Meanwhile, the UN pfaffs about, blocked by two fascist permanent members, while the gruesome statistics mount up. Here is a very small sample. The UN may be toothless, but its research department has a good reputation, as has Amnesty International:

  • UNICEF reported that over 500 children had been killed by early February 2012. Another 400 children have been reportedly arrested and tortured in Syrian prisons. Both claims have been contested by the Syrian government. (WHAT A SURPRISE!) According to the UN, 6,561 children were killed by mid-June 2013. The Oxford Research Group said that a total of 11,420 children had been killed in the conflict by late November 2013.

  • 24 November, 2013: A fierce battle in the eastern suburbs of Damascus has killed more than 160 people in the past two days as rebels struggle to break a months-long blockade by forces whose allegiance lies with President Bashar al-Assad, activists have said.Fighting began on Friday when rebel units attacked several checkpoints in an area known as the Eastern Ghouta, which has been under siege for more than six months. According to local and international aid workers, President Assad’s forces appeared to be trying to starve out residents. This latest bloodshed comes as the Oxford Research Group – a think tank – says that a total of 11,420 children have now been killed in the conflict.The report shows that explosive weapons have accounted for more than seven out of every 10 deaths since fighting started in March 2011. Small-arms fire accounts for more than one-quarter of the total, with older boys in the 13 to 17-year-old group the most frequent victims of targeted killings. Of the 764 children recorded as summarily executed, 112 were reported to have been tortured, including some of infant age.

  • According to the UN, Syrian armed and security forces have been responsible for: unlawful killing, including of children (mostly boys), medical personnel and hospital patients (“In some particularly grave instances, entire families were executed in their homes.”); torture, including of children (mostly boys, sometimes to death) and hospital patients, and including sexual and psychological torture; arbitrary arrest “on a massive scale”; deployment of tanks and helicopter gunships in densely populated areas; heavy and indiscriminate shelling of civilian areas; collective punishment; enforced disappearances; widescale and systematic destruction and looting of property; the systematic denial, in some areas, of food and water; and the prevention of medical treatment, including to children. Amnesty International reported that medical personnel had also been tortured, while the UN said that medical personnel in state hospitals were sometimes complicit in the killing and torture of patients. The execution and torture of children was also documented by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. Most of the serious human rights violations documented by the UN have been committed by the Syrian army and security services as part of military or search operations The pattern of the killing, coupled with interviews with defectors, led the UN to conclude a shoot-to-kill policy was operative. The UN mentioned several reports of security forces killing injured victims by putting them into refrigerated cells in hospital morgues.

  • 25 Sept, 2013: French President Francois Hollande told the UN General Assembly that 120,000 people have been killed in more than two years of civil war, 2 million people had fled Syria, and the country is “destroyed.”

  • May, 2012: Major Western powers say they are expelling senior Syrian diplomats following the killing of 108 people in the Houla region of Syria on Friday. France, the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, Canada and Australia have all announced expulsions. Most victims of Friday’s massacre – including women and children – were summarily executed, the UN says. Residents said the pro-government shabiha militia had entered homes and opened fire indiscriminately.

I hope the Labour Party is proud of its great achievement in preventing the free world from disabling some of Assad’s air-power and perhaps forcing him to negotiate. You’d defend your neighbour against fascism (I hope) but you won’t help foreigners. If this is not “racism”, then what is? YES, it is complicated and dangerous, but so was WWII, when we were ready to fight fascist evil. Now the left just blathers on about “American Imperialism”.

Whither Russia?

Ambrose Evans-Pritchard thinks that falling oil-price will pose big problems for Putin.

I on the other hand, would not put anything past him. An economic crisis could encourage him to stoke up nationalistic fervour even more and invade the Ukraine (“to support the government”) and Central Asia (“to combat terrorism”) and in doing so to restore his beloved Empire of the USSR.

Anyone who underestimates the potential evil of Putin is – frankly – an idiot. Astonishing that so many people seem to have some respect for an ex KGB officer, part of the same security apparatus that murdered 16,000 Poles in Katyn Forest under a totalitarian regime that Putin has said he regrets the demise of – AND a man leading his country when its security services almost certainly murdered one of its enemies on the streets of London. (remember what happened to Trotsky?)

Putin is also a strong supporter of the mass-murdering Assad, who not only recently gassed several thousand people a la Saddam Hussein but for whom there is also strong evidence that his regime has tortured and murdered in cold blood multiple thousands of his enemies.

Putin as an extremely nasty human being. His country is one of the most corrupt in the world outside Africa. His democracy is a sham. The police, media and judiciary in Russia are almost completely under his control.

This hysterical anti-Americanism is just surreal. Nobody’s perfect, but the following are free thanks to the USA in particular: the whole of Europe, most of Asia, Kosovo, Iraq, Libya and no doubt others I have forgotten. The countries the USA failed to liberate include the dictatorships of North Korea, China and Cuba.

The countries occupied by Putin’s beloved USSR suffered decades of oppression, poverty and misery while those occupied by the USA have become rich and powerful (Japan and Germany in particular). If you are so thick that you can’t grasp all this, just compare North and South Korea.

Only a total moron – or a would-be totalitarian fascist – could possibly prefer Putin to the USA.

The Beginning of the End?

Euro ‘increasing unemployment and social hardship’, says EC

Deepening economic divisions between North and South,
rich and poor eurozone countries threaten to undermine
the European Union itself, report states


So, an actual EC report tells us the bleedin’ obvious. Is this honesty, or as anyone with more than one brain cell will know, just another brick in the construction of a European Superstate?

Concerning this, it seems to me that the basic question is now this:

Will Germany agree to eurobonds to save the euro?

If it does (and Merkel has so far more or less said “Over My Dead Body”) then debt is equally shared and effectively backed by Germany, which would see much-increased inflation and a sharp fall in living standards. And of course, this being effectively financial union, it would inevitably lead to political union or the same in all but name.

If it doesn’t, the euro cannot survive; eventually, Italy, or even France will crack – its people rebel against the Brusselian-German Diktat. As all economists predicted, the euro simply cannot work for such disparate economies. But all the eurozealots KNEW this. The problems in the euro are ALL part of a DELIBERATE STRATEGY to force political union.

This ranks in my book as a crime: the deliberate deception of hundreds of millions of people, who were never told the truth or warned of the risks. And of course, even when they voted AGAINST the Lisbon Treaty (France and Ireland) the decision was effectively taken out of the people’s hands, their being of course too stupid to make the right decision.

It is staggering that the people responsible are ready to blame anyone but themselves for this disaster: the banks, the ratings agencies, the Anglo-Saxons ….. but NONE of them will be punished for this crime.

The Responsibility Pact in Realspeak

 I have had time to think about Hollande’s 180° U-turn, now espousing policies that Mrs Thatcher herself would have been proud of. However, a politician’s words are (since Churchill at least, and after him Thatcher) always detached from reality to some extent or other.

So, the backroom boys have come up with a translation of Hollande’s programme, which if you remember was:

  • create some committees

  • identify possibly savings

  • implement them

  • reduce taxes

  • make life and costs easier for employers

Wonderful, inspiring stuff. The translation below, however, gives us a somewhat more realistic interpretation:

“As part of their ‘Responsibility Pact’, employers will take on millions of workers NOW (even if they are busy staving off bankruptcy) and we will set up lots of committees to see how we might make life easier and cheaper for companies sometime in the future, but not before 2017 at least. We will also find ways to cut state spending to the tune of 50 BILLION euros by 2017, and this will be done without sacking a single civil-servant (because they vote for us). Don’t ask me how we will save this money; that is the task of one of our committees, and if they don’t find a way it will of course be their fault.

It’s true that we socialists have no experience of downsizing the state, cutting bureaucracy or reducing taxes, but we work fast. For example, it is only 18 months since the election and yet next month we set up our first committees to investigate where we might be able to save money. We may even – eventually – be able to cancel some of the new tax increases planned on top of the over 74 new or increased taxes since I was elected. And in any case, by the time the committees report, growth in the economy will make any implementation of their conclusions unnecessary. Either that, or Germany will have paid off our debts to save the euro. You may therefore ask why we are bothering with the committees if :

A) they will only report years from now and

B) we will ignore them anyway and

C) even if we try to implement cuts the unions will bring the country to a standstill

D) sustained and massive growth will cure all the problems so that we can carry on as before

Well, in answer to your question, “What is the point of this charade?”, please remember that we in the French political elite specialize in charades, and this one is intended to give the impression that I am doing something useful during daylight hours, the only time I am available of course.

VIVE LA FRANCE!”
