Peaceful Consequences?

As always, it is cause and effect. You do something; it has an effect. For example, you bomb a country to smithereens and the effect is that its population flees.

No war exit policy has worked since the British went into Afghanistan. The bad guys, the Nailbat, are still there, mainly because it is about the bad people’s thought patterns, rather than physical obliteration. They are passed on, via the tradition of oral storytelling.

Educate the children to find longlasting peace in the way of that country and create diplomacy amongst the adults. Regrettably, that is another of Mr Osborne’s timebombs. Diplomats returned home after a visit to China, kept together only by their good judgement. They stopped George blundering into making the Chinese lose face and when they returned home, a stupidly ungrateful government announced diplomatic job cuts in the Foreign Office . Give us strength to outlast idiots.

Please do not let Mr Osborne, in particular and also his boss stumble into situations where they think themselves obliged to help out foreign billionaires where none is expected. The scar of HS1 and HS2 anyone? It has tracks and is being built by … you are so far ahead of me … a Chinese billionaire who favours German carriages while we sink into the mire of false gratitude.

David Cameron, a Moral Politician

David Cameron was right and took a politically courageous and moral position to state that it would be best for Syrians to stay in their country. This was said at a time when a hundred thousand refugees were headed to Europe, and people were being drowned on their way.

Television newscasts have shown 97 refugee families living in a partly-built shopping mall. On other days, some refugees have said that they love their country and do not want to leave. Now there comes the obliteration of northern Syria, a dramatic development, said to be Russian.

Can we in the peaceful world, carve out an independent Syria zone, made up of a 1000 km –wide zone somewhere west of the Turkish border, of land that is fertile, or industrial or electronic, or whatever the majority wants, to ensure peaceful living.

Russia, America and the West must cross their hearts and promise any God they believe in, that they will leave this Syrian zone in peace. There are those who want Syria as a strategic asset. No-one wants to be that. The zone will be carved by people talking. Let them be experienced diplomats and not old Western politicians. Too much is at stake here for mistakes. A good way to move forward,or not?
