Britain Will Be The Fall-Guy In Mediterranean War

Hello

It appears that Mrs May can go to war without a mandate if she is doing it on behalf of the Queen.  It is risky for her to involve herself in politics, yet it is the British who have most to lose in these shenanigans.

Whoever thought it a good idea to pontificate on our Navy, makes it sound like a playground spat. If we initiate war, we will be crushed. We are piggy-in-the-middle here, with nothing to gain. If Mr Trump has played the great legacy, great country card, we should proceed with extreme caution.

I expect that Mr Trump will say that his aircraft carrier cannot manoeuvre between Cyprus and Syria as it would get stuck between two land masses. He will shrug and say that the British started it and he cannot protect them for fear of risking American lives. (He must be drowning Mrs May in charm.)

The strong response is to avoid war. It is not good to go to war with a lunatic and a French President, seeking what, exactly?

Which area will we hit with our weapons?  Do we have reliable Intelligence?

Who will be most hurt? The old, very young, very poor and children.  These are the people who were affected by a chemical attack, purported to come from Mr Assad of Syria.  Do we have proof? These are not people whom we have sworn to protect.  It is not our war! If we make it so, Russia will be delighted. As an aside, what happened to a man like President Assad to make him destroy his own country?

Has anyone noticed a pattern here? First North Korea and America swapped strong words. Then a threat was perceived to the South Korean peninsula where there is an American base. At that point, Mr Kim Jong Un, President of North Korea stepped up to statesmanship. He met Mr Moon Jae In, President of  South Korea and he made the first steps towards a US State Visit to North Korea.   The two Koreans have decided to have a Summit between them on 27 April, which is wonderful news.

So, the troublemakers looked for another target.  Britain and Russia threw out each other’s diplomats and so did our European allies over a chemical attack on English soil.

You have to think about consequences. Britain should not bomb a country, that is already in smithereens. We will be bound to hit innocent people. It would be better to send in drones with infra-red radar and discus results, before going in.

Mrs May’s reputation will sink massively. A consequence of going into someone else’s war may generate a General Election, as most of us are more tired of war than we are of Brexit, just. That the British have been in every war since the Second World War, does not mean we continue. I expected a woman to have more sense and analyse the problems and consequences.  It is a strong leader who stands back to look at the bigger picture. Leaping into war is for fall-guys.

So the Cabinet has, this evening, agreed to go to war. No surprise; they are mostly men, but what of the consequences? What do you do after levelling the parts of Syria, Messrs. Putin and Assad cannot reach?  Or worse. You cannot bomb a chemical weapons dump, for fear of releasing numerous toxic substances into the air. The whole Mediterranean area will be crippled, according to which way the wind blows.  We are fall-guys for this little Entente Cordiale between us, the French and the US. What does the French public say?

You cannot deter Russia from using chemical weapons. It has not worked here, has it? We do not need to respond to a threat, made worse by America.  Sending our young armed forces to war anywhere ; these ideas have to be well thought out. We never know which way Trump will jump.

Our international reputation will be in tatters. We are seemingly entering a club with a warmonger and the French. Why are we ignoring the UN and NATO? They will be with us after Brexit, but Mr Trump does not like them.  Please stop; standing up to him is a given. Do not give in. We should start thinking of ourselves. We are tiny in the world.

Our SAS are the finest in the world. Why waste their power in a place we cannot control and will do no good?

Of course, the Generals are ready and delighted to go to war.  Even they need a reason.  You do not play with the psyches of such brave men. I object to this war. What do you think?

Are we all fall-guys?

Hello

This article changed by the hour yesterday.

The problem with an ultimatum is that it annoys the other party, especially if it is a stolen nerve agent. Britain shouted a threat in his face and Mr Putin has swatted us like a fly, which should have been realized by Her Majesty’s government, before making a threat.

If Mr Putin has taken such a risk to have attempted murder on an exile living in Britain, so close to his own re-election, then he will have no compunction in pressing the nuclear button. To think otherwise would be a grave mistake.

What if the nerve agent is Russian made, but has been given to mercenaries: men paid to kill? Russia could trumpet that they did not send us a virulent chemical weapon, to kill one man and his daughter and scatter low-risk minutiae indiscriminately in Britain. Let everyone throw away their Sunday clothes and shoes to stop wider circulation.

Britain is now exactly where America and possibly Russia want us: piggy-in-the-middle.

We have dismissed 23 Russian Third Secretaries from London. This was done without recourse to the EU or the UN. Belatedly, at the UN Security Council last night, America spoke up for us.urther help from America is unlikely due to the volatility of its leader.

It is not for us to complain when the US brings in someone who agrees with its President. However, negotiations with North Korea are  delicate and just imagine if they decided to bring CIA opposite numbers into the talks; we would take it as provocation, Mr Trump’s new friend ought to be diplomatically retired, soonest.

Thanks to Trump, the world now relies on the statesmanship of Mr Kim Jong-Un and Mr Moon Jae-In.Recently, they have been far more statesman-like than communist and capitalist Presidents. East beats West for good manners, I am ashamed to say.

It is very worrying how desperate the Americans are to have us as piggy-in-the-middle. They trotted out some PR statement from the White House on 13 March, which identified our special relationship. Codswallop! That was dropped the moment Mr Trump won his election. It does not exist, except as a pipedream and as such, should be treated with extreme caution.

Oddly, Mrs May’s stance sounded more like Mr Trump than anything a British person would say. Was Trump dictating and Mrs May soaking it up?#Last night, two Presidents on opposite sides of the political spectrum, acted in the same way.  Mr Putin has sacked any credible opposition candidates and Mr Trump sacked his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, with contempt, by tweet. This is appalling behaviour, but not really our concern.

Last time a British politician fell at the feet of money and power, it was regrettably David Cameron. who was so delighted that a Chinese billionaire saved our steel industry, that he took a Trade Delegation to China to thank them. The Chinese were utterly confused as to who and why he was there and what he wanted. It took some high-ranking diplomatic talks to save the Chinese’ facc.

Chinese and Russian billionaires have nothing to do with their governments, yet Chinese and Russian billionaires spend vast sums on aeroplanes and boats, which adds distinctly to Britain’s revenue. They work very hard and live in beautiful London mansions, eat in our best restaurants and are plainly a valuable addition to our economy. They should be made welcome. Unfortunately, Mrs May mirrors the behaviour of other British leaders, who have never had jobs in the marketplace.

What are British exporters to Russia to do in the face of political threat from their own country? Russia is a BRIC country; one that is high-risk investment with possible high returns. Mrs May is threatening economic sanctions. Is that a joke? We are tiny compared with the rest of the world, yet we are good at making money. Why would we throw millions in Russian inward investment away?

As a young man said on television in Moscow last night:

“It will not impact on my life.”

Exactly. It is Britain who will lose out. If Theresa May is trumpeting Trump twitter and thinks that America will come to our aid when Russia declares nuclear war on us, it is wishful thinking. Trump will tweet that US soldiers must not return in coffins and we will be left high and dry.

Britain must be the most warring country in the world. Do you want to be wartorn?

We are only strong when combined with our NATO allies in a measured response, rather than a knee-jerk one. Too late. Twenty-three Third Secretaries  have to leave within 7 days. She also talked in Parliament about economic sanctions and cyber-attack. The latter depends on surprise.. Please do not respond to the American tweet, which Trump used yesterday to fire his own Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State! If he treats his own people with contempt, he would think it a great soundbite to refuse to help us.

There was a gross murder in a beautiful place. Make MI5 agents watch the TV News. There was a snippet about eyewitnesses seeing Mr Skripal yelling in the restaurant. Is it possible that someone had just sprayed him and his clothes?

Let us be discreet. We cannot give Russia a sample of the poison that was used so indiscriminately. They will find out how it worked or whether it mutated and that gives them a deadlier weapon. Shame on Jeremy Corbyn for not unifying all MP’s. We should be having no fuss, just discretion, our usual method. The UK has not retaliated until now, as the approach has been the survival of the many over the few.

We are a powerful member of the EU. Surely, we should have asked them for help first? And why is Mrs May talking about a nuclear deterrent? Not Trident surely?  First retired 35 years ago.  She sounds even more like Trump.

America and Russia would like nothing better than having Britain start World War III, on a vague, verbal, yet ethereal promise of aid. We  must neither fall for it , nor be the fall-guy. On both sides of the planet, these people are far enough away to be both uninvolved and unaffected by nuclear fallout. Our beautiful country of England will be wiped out.

Of course, if we have another hurricane, they will be responsible for signing a death sentence for the whole planet.

Please consider the consequences. It is boring, but we have already been caught out by being convinced by Mr Trump to talk about economic sanctions. This is a man who was born with £125 million, yet Trump Tower is no longer his. Why would we have such a man talk to us of economic sanctions. Let him destroy his own economy.. We are in great need of our career diplomats. If it is true, that their numbers have been cut by 25% since 2010, the young are diplomats-in-waiting.

We have to remember that there were no WMD.

Could all Londoners go to the seaside next weekend? Just in case.
