Shades of Nelson: Britain’s one-eyed foreign policy

Posted in britain, syria by Blimp deflator on March 31, 2013

One-eyed foreign policy
Does the average Westerner still believe that the “people” (jihadists) fighting the Syrian regime are “defenceless”? No doubt he/she does, as that is what the authorities would like us to believe. It fits in with their plan for the dismemberment of Syria, and the creation of several mini-states in its place. Actually, that is their plan for the entire “Middle East”, which must contain no power both able and willing to challenge the dominance of Israel. In the Western scenario, every sect and ethnic group will have its own cabbage patch surrounded by razor wire and minefields — to be defended at any cost against its erstwhile compatriots. Hatred, paranoia, and petty nationalism are to reign supreme. What a depressing prospect!

Bearded man reveals terror bomb ingredients

Posted in britain, poetry by Blimp deflator on February 24, 2013


The bearded man
in the next flat
is making a bomb.

Thinks I can’t hear him
muttering his incantations
as he mixes
the baking soda and birdseed,

his dirty nightie
flapping on the clothesline,
sending semaphore messages
to the training camp
in Bhuggah Bazaar.

Greets me in the corridor
with a sidelong glance
and a twitch
of his singed eyebrows.

But we all know
that next week,
decked out in suit and tie
and gripping the rail of the dock,
he will plead not guilty,

will swear to Almighty God
that his moth-eaten canary
was the sole beneficiary
of all his endeavors,

white knuckles flashing
for a second
beneath black skin.

The headline on this post must have attracted the attention of spooks throughout the English-speaking world. Hello, spooks. How has your day been? How is your program of surveillance and entrapment going? Railroaded a few more Muslim patsies into the slammer? Well done! The price of freedom is eternal vigilance . . . and a little waterboarding now and then. But let’s not worry too much about that. The gloves are off, right? Now’s not the time to be fastidious. Not when the future of “civilization as we know it” is at stake.

NOTE 2: The following is from a post by stukaville, dated December 16, 2012, at David Icke’s Official Forums:

I am a freelance journalist from the ****** Media Group. I have been interested in the recent leakage of the “Unlawful Killing” documentary on the internet and have found that a lot of video sites have been receiving a variety of copyright claims that have led to the videos being removed. I have investigated one of these copyright claims, and it turns out that after contacting the company — they allege that they did not make the claim. So it seems that somebody is making false copyright claims continuously. I think therefore, if you receive a copyright claim — you should really check if that person actually owns the copyright to a film which is actually commercially dead, worldwide. I also suggest that you argue that it should be made available, as it is strongly in the public interest.



NOTE 3: The following is a post by Coy Ote Fox on a social media site in December, 2012:

We’ve got this uploaded on five different video-sharing sites around the world and counting. This link [can’t be posted here] will direct you to one of them at random. As they get removed, we’ll modify the redirect page so you should always get to the video.

Britain today: ‘We don’t wanna know the truth’

Posted in britain by Blimp deflator on November 18, 2012

The following comment, by “xmasdale”, is from the forum Fate of Miriam Hyman (a victim of the 7/7 London bombings), and is dated November 27, 2007. I think it says a lot about the collective mentality in Britain today. It’s not merely that people don’t know what is going on, but that they don’t want to know. Perhaps, in the recesses of their minds, they realize that knowing too much can be hazardous to one’s health in the surveillance state.

I am reminded of the reaction of certain grieving relatives to a demonstration in front of the US Embassy [in London] by people from the 9/11 Truth Campaign on 11th Sept 2006. The relatives expressed hostile emotions to the demonstrators. One demonstrator responded:

“All we want is to know the truth.”

A grieving relative angrily replied:

“We don’t wanna know the truth.”
