Rat Nests

Forty years ago I lived and worked on a farm. One late autumn evening K. invited me to participate in an attack on the barn. He put two cartridges in his shotgun and we walked as quietly as we could across the yard. On a signal, I threw open the barn door and nipped inside to switch on the light. Rats fled in all directions. I caught a glimpse of the legendary Chester. He really was as big as a well-fed domestic cat. Two explosions had no effect whatsoever on the rat population. Sometime later, during the day, I found a rat that had fallen into an empty oil drum. I felt obliged to dispose of the enemy. He didn’t give up his life easily.

I dread to think what the carnage would have been like in Idlib if Syrian and Russian forces had entered the city to clear out the nest of terrorists. Estimates are that there are between 10,000 and 100,000 human rats there that must be removed if the sovereign nation is to resume its formerly peaceful existence. President Trump warned Syria and Russia not to attack the city, giving the impression that he cared for the civilians who would be caught up in the fighting. He doesn’t, of course, care about the slaughter of women, children and old men. (See Gaza and Yemen where his “friends” have committed war crimes routinely and show no inclination of stopping.)

Presidents al-Assad and Putin heeded the warning though, and with their Turkish counterpart Erdogan came up with a plan to create a demilitarized zone around the centre of Idlib city which would be slowly but steadily cleared of terrorists. The idea was, I think,  to clear this rats’ nest by October without a shot being fired and a single civilian killed.

I’m sure shots continue to be fired. There is nothing an Islamic terrorist enjoys more than brutalizing civilians. They are not going to give up easily. If one tunes into the UK’s propaganda media, all is currently quiet in Syria.

The FUKUS and Israeli Warhawks didn’t like the Putin-Erdogan plan and within hours launched an attack on Syria that resulted in the destruction of an Il-20 reconnaissance plane and its complement of fifteen Russian servicemen. That, like the Trump warning, brought an unexpected response from Putin. I will possibly give my thoughts about that tomorrow.

If President Trump has any sense he will listen to what Senator Richard Black had to say to Alex Christoforou on The Duran recently.

It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

The top story on Radio Five Live’s Breakfast Program this morning was the UK regime’s plan to ban the sale of Energy Drinks to children because they contain such large amounts of sugar and caffeine. (Yesterday’s top story was about the shockingly large numbers of young Brits who self-harm.) A little further down the running order – Should you take time off work if your pet dies? I missed this discussion so I can’t tell you what the consensus was.

I may also have missed the news that Syrian and Russian forces are almost ready to launch their attack on Idlib Province – to remove the western supported terrorists of  Al Qaeda, Isis/Isil. Jaysh al Islam etc. (Not to mention those lovely White Helmets who buried children alive so that they could video them being miraculously rescued.) It seems “highly likely” that Sergei Lavrov has warned France, the UK, and the US not to interfere with the clearance of the West’s proxy army from Syrian territory. The expected False Flag chemical attack in Idlib, being planned and facilitated in part by the UK regime’s MI6, is clearly no longer necessary. The psychopaths of NATO (and Israel) can begin their longed-for war any hour now. No excuse required.

There will be blood. Lots of it.

My lovely trip out to Flamborough this morning, (thanks Richard), may be my last for a while. Who knows?

Anyone for Tennis?

BBC Radio Five Live woke me this morning with news that “heat issues” in New York City had forced the retirement of five male competitors in the US Open. The chaps considered conditions were “dangerous”, with the on-court temperature at 38ºC, and 50% humidity.  Tournament organizers implemented an extreme heat policy in men’s matches for the first time. I wonder what conditions will be like next year.

CNN comes in for much criticism and ridicule for the propaganda it serves up in its “News” broadcasts, but this afternoon I happened upon a report by Clarissa Ward from the most rapidly warming part of the world – the Arctic – and I can’t find a single degree of fault with it.

IdlibProvSyriaA warning of a different kind has been put out by the Russian military – of a possible chemical weapon attack on civilians in Idlib province. “Rebel” shipments of chlorine have been tracked to the small town of Jisr al-Shughur (inset)  and on to a village nearby. Waiting there for their fifteen minutes of dubious fame are Assad-hating Syrians who will play dead for White Helmeted videographers. Their performance will be all over social media in no time. The Syrian government will be blamed for killing its own citizens and the Axis of Evil, all too predictably, will launch Tomahawk missiles into Damascus. Time to be ashamed of being British again.

The Russian Federation did not respond to the April false flag attack in Douma. But very soon the Eastern Mediterranean will be hosting fleets of armed-to-the-teeth vessels from both sides. What could possibly go wrong?

I’m not sure my countrymen and women are concerned that they are not being informed about another upcoming conflict sparked by lies. They are just happy that Strictly Come Dancing and The Great British Bake Off are back on their TV screens.  Christmas can’t be far away.
