Let’s just put these two pictures side by side and consider whether David Cameron is fit to run this country.
Let’s see that first picture a little clearer:
I hope that he and anyone who voted for air strikes in Syria can sleep well tonight because his and their legacy will be stained with innocent blood.
They are not making this country or the wider world safer and, as far as I’m concerned, so long as men continue to kill each other, we are all still barbarians. Perhaps I’ve been deluded to think otherwise.
Don’t tell me that there is no other way. There is always another way.
Perhaps our bombs are different to those of other nations. Perhaps our “special” bombs will indeed bring peace on earth and goodwill to all men.
Who am I to imagine that our military action in Syria will bring about anything but decreased terrorism; because bombing and slaughtering innocents (collateral damage, as one MP put it) will, of course, result in some holy epiphany and bring to an end terrorism forever.
That’s how it works…is it?
This “War on Terror” has only served to heighten the fear that we feel from the real and imminent threat of attack that has become more commonplace than prior to the declaration of said war. You know that’s the truth.
War is always a clever distraction, for the likes of us, from the issues that are really dragging our country down.
“We are all in this together”, it’s just that some lose their limbs, their lives, their husbands or wives, a parent, a sibling and others make globally impactful decisions, without personally suffering any negative consequence.
Quite the opposite, in fact, Blair’s money-making power went through the roof after his stint playing war games.
Sleep well, Mr. Cameron – you’re greatest achievement has been to take Thatcher’s deplorable and divisive style and raise the bar.
History will be the judge but until then this is just my humble opinion and who am I, after all…who are any of us really?
Alone we may feel powerless but together we are stronger. My only hope is that the citizens of this country wake up and grow a pair. We are way too apathetic and accepting in this country and I wonder what it will take to get us angry enough to say, “this is not ok. This is not in my name.”
