This is an example of the distorted inaccurate reporting of the far-left of the political spectrum. It’s worth a read, just to be able to identify truly biased writing. Check it out!

When I first saw the reference to Global Research I thought that this might be a respectable think-tank. Let me share what Rational-Wiki shared about Global Research:

Despite presenting itself as a source of scholarly analysis, Globalresearch mostly consists of polemics many of which accept (and use) conspiracy theories,pseudoscience and propaganda. The prevalent conspiracist strand relates to global power-elites (primarily governments and corporations) and their New World Order. Specific featured conspiracy theories include those addressing 9/11,vaccines,genetic modification,Zionism,HAARP,global warming,Bosniangenocidedenialism and David Kelly.

Globalresearch contributors are happy to source information from anyone who seems vaguely aligned with their ideology; during the 2011 Libyancivil war the site was an apologist for Muammar al-Gaddafi, reproducing his propaganda and painting him as a paragon of a modern leader. In the 2014 Ukrainian crisis the site is taking the standard “anti-globalisation” stance against the Western side and falling into the ranks of imperial Russian propaganda instead.

It’s no surprise then that the site has long become a magnet for radicals, fringe figures and whacko elements from the left in general.

Returning to the story, David Cameron does not deserve this sort of distorted reporting.

My politics are clearly defined (open link for more information). In particular, I completely reject the growing influence of both the far-left and the far-right.

As editor of this blog, I believe in understanding all side of the argument. But most of all, will also question to see the quality of the evidence.


Opinion – Some thoughts on the UK Military Deterrent: six thirty year old planes deployed – John Gelmini

Dr Alf says he is angry but what has happened is part of a strategy devised a long time ago, which is and was, to reduce the Tri-Forces to 100,000 people, merge the RAF into the Army Air Corps and bring back the troops from BAOR in Germany.
Then, the plan calls for all forces housing stock to be sold off, the sacking of more regular Army troops and their replacement by the Territorial Army, which represents the newly re-badged “Reserve”.

The UK has some Trident submarines and they represent a deterrent to small countries with no nuclear weapons but beyond that the UK has no deterrent worthy of the name.

We have just 17 escort vessels for our shipping, a figure which Lord West, a former Admiral and First Sea Lord, says is a dangerous disgrace.

We have no control over our own borders and permit traitors and seditionists to campaign for a Caliphate, commit atrocities in other countries and return to this country. So far, 250 have returned whereas anyone with an iota of common-sense would have had them eliminated with “extreme prejudice” before they got here.

The plan to recruit reservists to replace sacked soldiers is failing, which means that we should be looking at National Service once more.

Dr Alf rails against 36 year old planes, I worry about our lack of a single coastal protection vessel and the fact that we are little more than a “plug and play ” component in America’s global military. It means that we are totally reliant on them for defense and are incapable of projecting power in pursuit of our own interests. Relying on others in this way is dangerous. We should stop pretending that we are a great power and re-equip our forces properly, re-introduce National Service and modernise the forces we have with Stealth ships, Stealth aircraft, invisibility suits for our troops and thermobaric weapons, capable of producing the explosive power of a Hiroshima style nuclear bomb but without the harmful radioactive fallout.

ISIL/ISIS cannot be destroyed by air power alone. It requires action against the countries which fund it by removing and replacing their regimes. It requires the application of the Treason Act 1318 against them and their sympathisers here in the UK, the deportation of imans not from here who preach sedition or treason. Mosques where this dangerous nonsense is propounded need to be closed and the sites cleared for building essential worker housing.

In the end, we are probably going to have to reintroduce conscription, raise an army of millions and go after ISIS militants wherever they are. This is because we have left it too late to remove them whilst Western leaders procrastinated, especially President Obama.
