"Analogies with the past are never properly accurate and analogies especially with the rising fascism can be easily misleading, but in pure chronology I sometimes wonder if we're not in the 1920s or 1930s again."
Oh dear me, Awesome Churchillian speak, don't you think. Just bloody awesome. "I sometimes wonder if we're not in the 1920s or 1930s again." Just sucks your breath away with blinding stupidity. I sometimes wonder if these are my pants or Harvey's.
Mr. Blair received three standing O's for this one: "This ideology now has a state, Iran, that is prepared to back and finance terror in the pursuit of destabilizing countries whose people wish to live in peace."
Sonia Henie's Tutu! Did this boy wonder just fall off the turnip truck. Years as Prime Minister and not once did he ever state any thing quite so clearly until now. Not even a year in retirement and already he has the vision and wisdom of Solomon. Unbelievable. Three standing Ovations from the rich and powerful of New York City who obliviously appreciate a plain spoken man. Heroic men like Rupert Murdoch, chairman of the News Corporation, and mayor Michael Bloomberg of New York City. Yes, thats right New York City. The City that just last week turned the Empire State Building green to celebrate the end of Ramadan for a religion that prefers to cut off the clits of little girls and murder wives in the street when "honor" has been insulted.
Mr. Blair, who now makes ends meet, in his retirement, by working as a talking head for the Middle East Quartet said violent extremism was a "perversion of the proper faith of Islam", which used "demonic skill" to exploite genuine grievances and fears held by Muslims around the world.
"There is a tendency even now, even in some of our own circles, to believe that they are as they are because we have provoked them and if we left them alone they would leave us alone," he said. "I fear this is mistaken. They have no intention of leaving us alone."
Incredible courage from a fearless leader, under whose watch a "conservative mainstream British Muslim" group in Mr. Blair's own back yard now has gained sufficient political strength to "advise" the current government: Melanie Phillips
More very alarming evidence indeed of the attitudes of ‘mainstream’ British Muslims. As the Telegraph reports, the Conservative Muslim Forum, a body set up by David Cameron to advise the Conservatives on Muslim issues and which is headed by Lord Sheikh, has condemned the government’s support for Israel on the grounds that this displeases Muslims and says that Iran has ‘legitimate’ reasons for wanting nuclear weapons. It also argues that preachers who advocate a rejection of democracy and its institutions should not be denied entry into Britain.
In the document, the group says:
Regardless of the foreign policies of the United States, hostility to Iran is not in Britain’s national interest. A constructive engagement with Iran offers many possibilities for progress.
But of course, this inverts the facts. Britain is not hostile to Iran; Iran has declared war upon Britain and the west. There can be no ‘constructive engagement’ with a country that is currently blowing up our soldiers in Iraq. For British citizens to state that although they oppose Iran getting nuclear weapons, it has legitimate reasons for wanting them when it is committed to the destruction of Israel and war against the west, is appalling.
Neglecting his own garden, Mr. Blair is now in Dubya's to supposedly sooth wrecked feelings of acute anxiety after Mr. Dubya's plain spoken announcement: Iran acquires the A-bomb precipitates World War III.
Mr Bush said:
"I've told people that if you're interested in avoiding World War three, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them (Iran) from having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon."
Sounded plain enough to me and I thought well, at least, the king of the Orcs won't miss this clue but today I find out that the shhh -go back to sleep squad has been quietly and urgently passing out the world"he didn't mean it. He did'n't mean it. It's OK. He didn't mean it" "NOT a threat of War" No worries he was just making a point.
"White House press secretary, Dana Perino, said President Bush was making a "rhetorical point", not a threat of war."
"The president was not making any war plans, and he wasn't making any declarations. He was making a point, and the point is that we do not believe - and neither does the international community believe - that Iran should be allowed to pursue nuclear weapons." Oh well, that's alright, then. Isn't it. Everyone can go back to breathing. I mean Dubya was just making a rhetorical point it's not like the king of the Orcs promise to wipe Isreal off the map with the first bomb out the oven. Isn't it.
