My country Britain needs to be dismantled and if having to use the insurgency methods it constantly and with impunity utilizes in its colonialist, imperialist and hegemonic zeal to destabilize, create chaos in, brutally assassinate leaders of, bring about regime change in, fragment and ruthlessly loot of their natural resources and mineral wealth countries of the global south, several of them ex-colonies of its former empire, is the only way to achieve this then the sooner this dismemberment begins the better I say; as it’s the only pragmatic solution I can foresee for permanently killing off the thoroughly fixated and delusionary conviction obsessively held by most Britons that somehow Britain is indispensible to the world and therefore what its rulers think, say and do are the only things that really matter. To me it’s an attitude that totally stinks, and one in my opinion that must unconditionally and completely be destroyed.
As you read this article Britain, never mind what the Con-Dem regime of David Cameron and Nick Clegg lyingly and dishonestly says, is actively and murderously involved in the logistical planning - MI6 had operational centres in the city of Homs before claiming to have tactically retreated, in other words these bullying cowards ran for their lives when the Syrian army launched a determined and concerted attack on their illegal strongholds - and actual implementation of terrorist acts that are premeditatedly targeting and killing innocent Syrian civilians, military personnel as well as wilfully destroying Syria’s public infrastructure with the aim of creating chaos in the country, generating instability and fear in the minds of the general public, engender crippling destabilization and significantly act as a powerful catalyst for widespread dissension across Syria that Britain hopes the vast majority of those forced into this uncompromising and unpleasant situation that they find themselves in will out of a natural desire for their personal safety, in other words simply managing to stay alive, and regardless of whatever genuine feelings of empathy with and support for the Bashar al-Assad government that they may have will nevertheless turn on it and bring it down.
It’s the very same artifice that Britain deviously used in Libya after its ostentatious public rapprochement with and much vaunted welcoming of Colonel Gaddafi back into the so-called international fold only to treacherously destroy his country, topple his government and give its approval to his cold-blooded assassination, this despite boy Hague - and I’m referring here to the British Foreign Secretary William Hague who is a pathological liar of the same sort as Tony Blair and that I’m quite happy to let it be generally known I’ve had a passionate loathing for ever since I first clapped eyes on him as a pretty revolting precocious schoolboy and nauseatingly rightwing burk with a most irritating accent and manner of speech, which haven’t deserted him I notice, giving a rabble-rousing rant at a Conservative Party conference when Margaret Thatcher was prime minister – openly and barefacedly lying to both the British public and the House of Commons that there were definitely no British boots on Libyan soil when in point of fact the SAS, MI6 and the CIA for instance were already clandestinely functioning in Libya for years and long before the so-called Arab Spring was ever ostensibly conceptualized and implemented, manipulated by the west is how I prefer to see it, by the west’s own agent provocateurs, naïve dupes and basically well-meaning mugs in the countries involved that for internal consumption, necessary international perception but most crucially for their own iniquitous advantages the involved governments of the west, including that of Britain, have cynically and quite disingenuously publicly given the impression that they too have bought into the generally perceived narrative that the so-called Arab Spring has been all about unprompted Citizens demonstrations and protests and it’s those that were out on the streets in their hundreds of thousands who should be given the credit for it. Nothing could be further from the truth where these Machiavellian purveyors of the black arts are concerned.
What the world is currently observing in the Middle East and more specifically at this moment in Syria is the partial realization of a detailed and concerted plan by the United States, Britain, the EU, Israel and the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization, NATO that has long been in the making to effectively destroy what they perceive and fear as an Axis of Resistance jointly led by Iran, Syria, Hezbollah and Hamas against their colonialist, imperialist and hegemonic ambitions in the Middle East and North Africa and continued theft of these regions natural resources, and if not checked will certainly grow in strength, numbers and purpose as progressively more people both at home but importantly in the affected and neighbouring countries come to realize, resent and resist what they’re doing.
To this end therefore of putting into operation damage limitation while proceeding apace with their plans to accomplish their goals, such as the destabilizing of multiple countries, generating chaos in them, leadership assassinations, regime change and the assiduous but invidious employment of the well-established principle of divide and rule, are all relevant components of these government and military terrorists aspirations and special agendas to destroy those whom they see as actual or prospective enemies and having got them out of the way to then swiftly militarize the Middle East, North Africa and Central Asia as a sort of medieval type fort, and in tandem with what the United States and NATO are already up to in eastern Europe and Turkey that the US is aggressively pursuing in several Pacific Ocean and far east countries and of course Australia, encircle and severely circumscribe it hopes the growing military and financial power as well as the influence of China and Russia not forgetting that Russia is abundantly rich in natural resources, notably oil and gas, that an energy hungry, resources depleted west would dearly love to get their greedy hands on.
To gratuitously and worse still knowingly support a position that is morally indefensible, criminal and utterly reprehensible and to do so because those responsible for and who are carrying out these criminal and inhuman activities are either our friends, family members, colleagues, bosses, those we look up to or for personal reasons we’re well disposed to yet were these selfsame deeds the actions of those we’re wary of, dislike, hate or are envious of we would instantly be up in arms against quite frankly as an attitude just sickens me as it’s diametrically opposed to my upbringing as well as my entire value system; because as far as I’m concerned wrongdoing is simply that regardless of who the perpetrator is, and that individual or the persons involved should in my opinion be subjected to the complete rigours of the law, given a full, ample and unrestricted opportunity to defend themselves and let the law take its course. That’s what I call justice anything else is dead wrong!
It’s a tenet that I unashamedly think should and must be applied as well to our politicians, civic leaders, the military, law enforcement officers, corporation bosses, the unseemly but even so powerful rich and those that many in our society despite the year being 2012 and not 1812 still instinctively kneel in reverence to and obsequiously revere as the privileged elite. That no one should ever be above the law oughtn’t to be just an academic theory but should instead be a practical and indefatigable reality.
Tony Blair took Britain to war against Iraq on a lie knowing it to be so but at least he tried to cover his back by having the matter debated in parliament and getting the assent for his criminal escapade from the bunch of obsequious blockheads, Colonel Blimps and armchair patriotic generals who are always willing and ready to defend Britain’s foreign interests, never the country’s genuine needs like the safeguard of the NHS and the proper education of our children, to the last drop of somebody else’s blood but never their own or that of their families and who like the verminous and repulsive cockroaches that they are infest that far from august chamber they carouse in. UN Resolution 1973 decreed that there should be a no-fly zone over Libya, nothing said about or any authorization specific or implied ever given by it to gratuitously attack Libya and bring about regime change there but it didn’t stop the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization from doing these things. That’s because this was what Britain and its allies wanted all along and Libya’s massive oil and gas reserves were too temping for David Cameron and Nick Clegg to pass up the opportunity handed to them on a plate to further ingratiate themselves with BP and the other multinational oil corporations and with an eye to their own future financial security. What personal deals “you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” they’ve concocted with BP and the other oil thieves as Tony Blair did prior to the Iraq war we’ll just have to wait until they leave office to see; but you can bet your very last Pound that these avaricious bastards along with the rest of their Con-Dem cabinet with more than a few venal spivs at the Ministry of Defence stand to gain immensely, Bae Systems readily come to mind, from their treachery to this country. Watch this space!
No one with a working brain cell in his or her head thinks that UN Security Council is either democratic or is run that way especially with the pusillanimous buffoon Rickshaw Charlie, aka Ban ki Moon, allegedly in charge, which he isn’t as he’s nothing more than a willing toady to carry out the US’s wishes. Nevertheless the UNSC does have rules and among them are those that stipulate there are to be five permanent members of that body: China, Russia, replacing the former Soviet Union, the United States of America, Britain and France and that each of these permanent members have the right of veto to block any resolution that it doesn’t agree with regardless of what the other veto wielding permanent or temporary members of the UNSC or for that matter the UN General Assembly think of that decision. Throughout the UNSC’s existence the US has exercise more vetoes than the rest of the P5 combined, most of them extremely selectively and disproportionately as it happens in favour of Israel; and Britain and France are also pretty handy when it comes to either using their veto powers self-interestedly or in sycophantically following the US lead and using it to defend this Zionist apartheid and imperialist entity ensconced in the Middle East, and what’s more routinely expect and would most certainly demand if there were any inclination not to do so that whatever disposed recalcitrant country be it Russia China or anyone else play by the rules, maturely accept and abide by their veto decisions, which they always do.
Russia and China rarely use their veto powers in the UNSC but they recently did so to block a grossly one-sided regime change resolution against Syria brought to the chamber by the western UNSC P 3 members and their barbaric, undemocratic, wholly totalitarian Arab Bantustan puppets in the Persian Gulf, particularly Bantu-Saudi and Qatar: a petrol filling station masquerading as a country. Russia and China acted this way because they saw what happened in Libya after their foolish abstentions on the 1973 UN Resolution; how Britain and the rest of them in the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization shamelessly abused both the spirit and the letter of the law of that resolution and were determined not to permit that to ever happen again.. But like the arrogant but when push really comes to shove craven bullies that the UNSC western P3 are they just couldn’t abide what Russia and China did. How dare they, they openly queried as they furiously threw their dummies out of their prams; this after all is meant to be our UNSC not yours!
Filled with self-righteous indignation and with Russia and China sticking to their guns on this matter Britain, France and the United States along with NATO members like psycho-schizophrenic Turkey that can’t make up its mind whether it’s European or central Asian, Persian Gulf Bantustan puppet entities comprising Qatar, Bantu-Saudi and of course the principal mad dog of the Middle East Israel have decided to resort to the same terrorism that that they sanctimoniously and ad infinitum denounce whether anyone really wants to listen to them or not to have their way in Syria. Frankly, these countries are actively and knowingly violating every internationally agreed convention and UN regulation that there is to clandestinely wage war on a country that hasn’t threatened or attacked any of them and in doing so are deliberately killing innocent civilians, mostly women and children, to create chaos, destabilize the country and finally they hope bring about the regime change that they wanted all along. How utter disgusting that these people can expect and demand that UNSC P3 vetoes should be sacrosanct, respected and adhered to but that they don’t need to pay any attention to or follow the same rules when a properly taken decision goes against their selfish, premeditated and pernicious agendas. Just imagine what the reaction would have been if Russia, China or any group of states had decided to sponsor terrorism, insurgency or had provided the logistical support for death squads to infiltrate and work in Israel to create the same havoc that Britain, France, the United States of America, EU, Turkey and their Bantustan chums are doing in Syria. We wouldn’t hear the last of it and more likely than not such activities would have provoked a war by the west in the same way as if these terrorist activities were let loose on major US or EU cities. But once again we come face to face with the blatant double standards and hypocrisies of these criminal morons.
David Cameron, Nick Clegg and their cabinet on the legal principle of joint enterprise are now war criminals as they have neither the authorization of the UNSC, the British people nor our parliament let alone the permission of the global south to wage a war on Syria or anyone else, even if in Syria’s case it isn’t an all out military campaign but rather a nasty, vicious, covert insurgency and terrorist campaign against another sovereign, independent state that is also a fully-fledged member of the United Nations. I don’t expect the British legal authorities to arrest these war criminals since they haven’t done so with Tony Blair, Gordon Brown and their ilk; and it’s an absolutely sure bet that with David Cameron and Nick Clegg’s political parties, at the unconstrained insistence of Israel in order to protect its own war criminal who wished to visit Britain, having changed the UK’s laws whereby any British citizen in possession of a magistrate’s warrant to do so – now only the British Attorney General a government political figure and cabinet minister can selectively make that judgement on who or which foreigner is a war criminal and can or cannot be arrested on British soil – could have summarily executed that issued warrant against the accused war criminal with a legal obligation on the part of the police to arrest that individual and the Crown Prosecution Service, CPS, to follow up the merits of the case now no longer in force or possible to affect, that it’s a safe bet the police and CPS or our Zionist House of Commons won’t do anything to rectify this matter, and expecting David Cameron, Nick Clegg, boy Hague, Theresa May et al to freely fall on their swords or indict themselves as war criminals would let’s face it be a bit far-fetched.
Similarly there won’t be any relief I can assure you from the ICC which has an aberrant and obsessive fixation with the colour black, and that ever since its creation has only and exclusively selectively indicted, prosecuted and incarcerated Blacks as war criminals and perpetrators of crimes against humanity. Undoubted white war criminals however don’t have that problem to contend with since untroubled by such trivial concerns as both they and the ICC perceive them as they’re allowed to make millions from their crimes, publish memoirs and back-slapping go on global tours to laud and promote their heinous actions. Just look at Tony Blair; more than eight luxurious residences now for him and his family to live in, while he makes substantial millions from the major oil corporations and those of the military industrial complex on whose behalf he really went to war with Iraq not all that dishonest crap about its weapons of mass destruction which as he knew all along and every Briton who hasn’t been in a coma for the past decade knows all too well now didn’t exist. Yet not a hair on his head has been touched for his multiple war crimes and crimes against humanity. So on precedent alone David Cameron, Nick Clegg and their cabinet of associate war criminals can feel quite confident that neither the British police nor the ICC will ever bother them; which leave you the British public.
Now you can either redeem yourselves by collectively coming together as a nation, speak with one voice and absolutely ensure that all these criminals who blight our country and give it an awfully bad name while feathering their own nests in the process are arraigned and get their just desserts, or else you can slap yourselves on the back, smugly feel proud you’re white and delude yourselves that you and your country are forever immune from these kinds of atrocities which are routinely happening to people thousands of miles away from your European backyard; people that don’t look at all like you, that you don’t know, want to or care about as you ask yourselves in dismissive terms why should you? Never mind that it’s your country ostensibly acting in your name that is causing their misery and death. And anyway you self-congratulatorily persuade yourself Britain is a nuclear power and you’re well protected by this.
True, Britain does have nuclear weapons but it can’t use them in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Sheffield, Brighton, Stafford, Liverpool, Manchester, York, Leicester, Bradford, Wolverhampton, Coventry, Oxford, Milton Keynes, Cambridge or Newcastle-upon Tyne for example or to fight an urban guerrilla type insurgency campaign since that would be synonymous to a man holding a hand grenade and threatening those in the room with him with it, make no sense at all unless he’s also prepared to die himself. Neither can Britain use cruise missiles nor utilize RAF saturation bombing strategies, I know as I served with the Royal Air Force, as it did in Libya against insurgency embedded and targeted British cities as no British government could aspire to do that and survive, and the carnage would be so enormous and horrendous that no section of British society other than that involved in the insurgency would have the stomach for it. In marked contrast however there would be no such limitations or moral probity by the insurgents in respect of their use of IUDs car bombs, sticky bombs, improvised explosives, infrastructure and media broadcasting destruction and the like in concert with scrupulously targeted campaigns against shopping malls, schools, churches, recreational facilities, banks, constituency political offices and a host of residential and other so-called soft targets as well as law enforcement and military ones by internal clean skins and a consortium of externally funded and trained insurgents; all the associated criminal and heinous terrorist activities that Britain is practised at and is currently carrying out in Syria as it did in Libya; is also implicated with in Iran by means of its funding and arming of the MKO - no wonder that Catherine Ashton is so concerned about the physical welfare of this globally recognised terrorist group that was a close ally of Saddam Hussein and along with Britain, the EU and the US want it to be unbanned by the UN as a terrorist group and have collectively put pressure on Iraq not to expel it from its territory - and other similar anti-Iranian terrorist groups and is up to its neck in in the suppression of the genuinely peaceful protestors of Bahrain, Yemen and yes Bantu-Saudi in the massive weaponry, logistical support and other help it gives to the dictators in these Gulf Bantustans to kill their people, apart from exporting Ian Henderson and John Yates to assist in this process as well.
No one, individual or country, can expect to flout the law morally or in the criminal sense and expect to continuously and with impunity get away with it; which is what Britain is doing and thinks it can. I’m well aware that it isn’t only Britain that is conducting itself in this way; France, Germany, Norway, Switzerland, Sweden, Denmark, Italy and others are also deeply complicit in these crimes, as are the US and Canada and it’s to be hoped that they too get their comeuppance. But I am British and it’s my country which I want to see put in order or else be destroyed as a useless entity as the case maybe, just as one would a family pet that has fatally contracted rabies and unhappily must be put down for the good and safety of everyone in that family home, the neighbours and anyone else that that dog might consciously or even by chance come in contact with, and therefore I can only hope that the citizens of the US, Canada and others that comprise the North Atlantic Terrorist Organization do the same in respect of their own countries.
To alternative is bleak; for to do nothing as you stand by and watch innocent people in the global south insensitively and cold-bloodedly murdered in their own countries by the military forces of your own marauding countries and especially when they pose no threat to you or ever did you any harm is complicity to murder, and if you or the British people can’t get that notion into your skulls then you’re all accessories after the fact and deserve everything that insurgents, whether they are home-grown, sponsored by countries abroad or simply an alliance these, with the specific remit to target your country and population can physically and psychologically wreak on you. And even though in the case of Britain I may unwittingly be a victim of such insurgency attacks - car bombs don’t discriminate against individuals or know what their political views are – I shan’t lose any sleep over it as I think it’ll be a price worth paying. As Charles I said to his children shortly before he was executed, death isn’t such a terrible thing. And I should know.
On three separate occasions and in totally distinct surroundings and circumstances, one of them in an RAF fighter jet as it happens, I was seconds away from death but providence intervened; even so these incidents as my life flashed by before my mind’s consciousness weren’t frightening at all and honestly were very much to the contrary. So I’m absolutely philosophical about when or how my life ends, as my conscience is clear and has always been in relation to those things that truly matter in my life and which I feel passionately about. But other than natural causes or an unforeseeable accident that I have no control over I haven’t the slightest intention of ever surrendering my life cheaply, and especially with respect to causes I’m committed to, to those who for their nefarious purposes might want to subjugate it or even wish to deprive me of it. Not for me the Christian platitude of turning the other cheek since from personal observations and even the odd past encounter myself I’ve learnt it’s a mug’s game that can and will be horribly abused by those who’re most keen to advocate and what’s more want for me and others to adopt that dogma.
It’s internationally accepted that the South Atlantic is voluntarily a non-militarized and non-nuclear zone, something that the countries of the region firmly adhere to. Britain in 1982 and subsequently in its antiquated imperialistic and outdated colonialist aspirations has blatantly chosen to ignore this.
Its dubious sovereignty of the Malvinas aside what the Colonel Blimps of Britain are saying is that if one has a permanent seat on the unrepresentative and unaccountable UNSC and a nuclear capability as well that country along with its friends can do whatever they like, get away with it, and accounts for why they’re so obsessively keen to stop other countries they dislike or disapprove of from acquiring their own nuclear weapons, which they themselves are in possession of and have no intention whatsoever of ever giving up, as a counterbalance to them, whether these countries want nuclear weapons or not. The answer therefore is quite simple; ignore these bullies and go for the nuclear option if practicable.
As for David Cameron’s risible and fallacious claim that Britain stands squarely behind the right of all people to democratically choose their way of life, who governs them, what sovereignty they hold or aspire to, who they might wish to pledge their allegiance to and that these precepts apply rigidly to the settlers on the Malvinas/Falklands islands and from his perspective are non-negotiable, I would like to ask Mr Cameron if these same precepts so clearly demarcated by him also apply to the indigenous people of the Chagos Islands.
For those of you who are ignorant of what I’m talking about or even where the Chagos Islands are, let me explain myself. The Chagos Islands are an archipelago of islands in the Indian Ocean whose indigenous population is black. Like many territories around the world that during the rampant onslaught of British colonialism were arbitrarily invaded, occupied, had their inhabitants thoroughly subjugated and who were told that henceforth, whether or not they wanted to be, they were henceforth subjects of the British Empire, the people of the Chagos Islands suffered the same fate. A nation of indigenous people as distinct from the Falklanders who are categorically settlers and the remnant descendants of British whalers that plied their trade in the South Atlantic when whaling was a major seafaring industry there the Chaggossians remained involuntarily under British colonial rule until the early 1960s.
That’s when the United States government unilaterally approached its British counterpart and demanded that the main island of the group, Diego Garcia, be physically handed over, though mercifully as it turned out not sovereignty-wise, to the Americans for the purpose of a military base there, and furthermore to ensure that the United States would de facto have full jurisdiction over the entire archipelago of islands additionally stipulated in its demands to the British government that every living soul on these islands had to be ethnically cleansed from their indigenous homeland along with the absolute prerequisite and clear-cut guarantee backed up by any means that the Americans thought necessary as long as the base existed to ensure that neither the then current population of Chaggossians nor their descendants could ever set foot again on their native and ancestral homeland.
A secret deal concocted between the British and US governments there was evidently no transparency or revelation of what was agreed between these two entities, all that would clandestinely come out much later, nor was there any public or parliamentary scrutiny of or endorsement for this pact as it was never publicly discussed within the UK and most definitely not on the Chagos Islands where the islanders were permanently, disdainfully and dismissively kept in the dark about what was going on, clearly never consulted on anything but simply presented with a fait accompli when the shameless stitch up and dreadful betrayal of themselves by the British and the Americans was completed.
Sycophantically as it has always been towards the US since 1945 and still continues to be to this very day the British government readily acceded to every demand that the United States made of it in respect of the Chagos Islands; in turn the US unsurprisingly got the greenlight to build its base on Diego Garcia, however but before that was embarked on and not wanting to sully its hands when it could happily get its British quisling cat’s-paw to do its dirty work for it the US administration ordered Britain to commence the process of ethnically cleansing the Chaggossians from their homeland.
And so began a vicious and brutal process with routine beatings of the local inhabitants, torture, physical threats to murder babes in arms, toddlers and older children in front of their mothers that were themselves forcibly separated from their husbands who were then threatened with physical mutilations including leg amputations and castration, a common practice on the British colonial plantations in the West Indies and North America during slavery, if they resisted their forcible ouster from the land of their birth.
Pregnant women traumatized into labour by the undue pressure of persistent intimidation that took on many forms including verbal and physical harassment exerted on them by these British ethnic cleansers were callously prevented from receiving medical assistance resulting in the deaths of some mothers and their babies, and many elderly people on prescription medication cruelly had these taken from them with the same deadly result. In fact everything that could be conjured up to make life intolerable for these people was ruthlessly seized on to exert the maximum pressure on the Chaggossians to relinquish their homes, their lands and their islands.
Houses were set ablaze and their occupants forced to watch as they burnt to the ground with their prized personal possessions inside them; crops were wantonly destroyed; water sources contaminated; farm and other domesticated animals and even household pets were either mercilessly slaughtered, chemically poisoned or having been liberally doused with petrol in their pens were cold-bloodily burnt alive as part of what was essentially a scorched earth policy by the British with total ethnic cleansing as its sole objective; sadly but unsurprisingly it worked.
Shortly afterwards in the wake of the last Chaggossian being forcibly removed from the archipelago by its British lackeys the United States government began the construction of its military base on Diego Garcia the principal island of the Chagos archipelago; a base that 52 years on still exists and which has featured quite prominently in the unlawful US rendition programme and many other ghastly atrocities that the United States of America has been sadistically involved in, in Central Asia, the Middle East and the Horn of Africa.
Turfed off protestingly from their ancestral islands but physically unable to do anything to stop this from happening the Chaggossians were humiliatingly dumped by the British government on the island of Mauritius , another British colony at the time, with no provisions for their welfare put in place either locally or by the regime in London; and with the hapless Chaggossians left very much to fend for themselves in the face of simmering and at times open hostility to their presence on the island from local Mauritians the situation for them was indeed a very grim one.
Deeply traumatized by these new developments on top of what had already happened to them back home the Chaggossian community was in a deep quandary as to what best to do to protect itself and just as significantly survive in the process. Some members of it working on the principle that during the colonization of their islands they were deemed to be British subjects by their colonialist interlopers whether or not they wanted to be such, and furthermore since it was Britain that had ethnically cleansed them from their homeland putting them in the precarious position they now found themselves to be in, they would exercise their rights as British subjects and seek to emigrate to the UK.
This idea though was forcibly stamped on by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office which made it abundantly clear that such a move wouldn’t be tolerated let alone accepted by Her Majesty’s government since the Chaggossians weren’t British born nationals, had never lived in Britain, had no familial or other relevant links to the country, did not satisfy the UK’s strict immigration policies, and whatever claims they thought they had as British subjects were residual ones, restricted and notionally applicable in an overseas context only. In other words you don’t belong here and importantly we Brits don’t want you coming into our country, never mind that we’ve just brutally kicked your asses penniless off your own homeland that you never wanted to leave in the first place, viciously seized it from you in the process, are physically and psychologically preventing you from returning there, and in the most fawning manner imaginable to any sensible and fair-minded person have handed what’s rightfully, morally and legally your undisputed home over to our American masters and controllers to arrogantly do with it as they God-dammed well felt inclined to and eventually did.
Carte blanche provisions then to pursue a perversely indoctrinated and very tenaciously adhered to arrogance which explicitly stipulated then, and unchecked still holds sway to this day, February 15, 2012, that no one other than those who the United States government deems appropriate and accords permission to can approach the territorial waters or airspace of the Chagos Islands let alone presume they can set foot on that archipelago. A strictly enforceable ban that incredibly also applies to British government ministers, parliamentarians, our military, British law enforcement officers, our judiciary, the media, ordinary members of the British public, the Chaggossians themselves of course and even Her Majesty the Queen, notwithstanding, and I’m being particularly sarcastic here, the seemingly little from the perspective of the US administration’s and that of their Westminster quisling clowns but nevertheless by no means an insignificant matter in the eyes of everyone else with any sense of fair play or justice inside them that constitutionally these islands ever since their colonization by Britain have not ceased being and at this particular moment in time are still legally a British crown colony that’s internationally recognized as such, and furthermore their sovereign and globally acknowledged head of state is none other than HM Queen Elizabeth II the incumbent monarch of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland.
Now just imagine a similar scenario unfolding if you will where le’s say it was seriously demanded by Britain for example that the inhabitants of Puerto Rico or the US Virgin Islands should likewise be brutally and ignominiously turfed out of their respective islands by the United States which has a moral and legal obligation of care for these people as well as legal jurisdiction over them and their islands, and this was explicitly being done at the flimsy demand and selfish behest of Britain or even some other foreign state that coveted these islands and wanted to use them for their military adventurism or geopolitical and imperialist escapades.
Wishful thinking at best is how such an overture, immediately slapped down with dismissive opprobrium and disdain, would be viewed by the United States as regards any country stupid enough to make such a suggestion, and that would definitively be the end of that, as there’s no way that the United States would so blatantly and pusillanimously as Britain willingly and freely did vis-à-vis the Chagos Islands have compromised its independence and sovereign integrity to a foreign power while at the same time treacherously betraying the legal, personal and constitutional rights of people who were its lawful citizens, and furthermore that it had a moral duty of care to protect. All this notwithstanding the fact that the US Constitution specifically proscribes the military of all foreign countries being stationed on US soil, something that the British government, Britain after all was the former colonial ruler of what subsequently became the United States of America, well knows, and taking full cognisance of this would the US ever in a month of Sundays abrogate this hallowed rule, since its national pride and instinctive chauvinism would never countenance let alone accept such a move; which emphatically puts into its proper perspective and firmly reinforces this the truly obsequious and pitying character of contemporary Britain.
Unjustly and racially debarred from Britain and with all other likely practical options just as frustratingly leading nowhere the Chaggossians finding themselves marooned on the island of Mauritius were literally up the proverbial creek without a paddle, nevertheless their spirits remained unbowed and they were even more resolutely determined than before not to give up in their quest to regain their islands and return home to the peace and tranquillity which were so much an integral part of their everyday lives before their brutal ethnic cleansing from their own personal as well as ancestral homeland by the British government acting obsequiously at the behest of the United States administration and the Pentagon.
To this effect an organisational strategy following the dismissive snub to their expectant aspirations by the authorities in London was now scrupulously put in place with very specific long term goals a constituent priority of this manoeuvre, since the Chaggossians were under no illusions whatsoever that their struggle would be an uphill one just as their fight for justice would be a protracted battle with many likely setbacks along the way; but they were mentally prepared for these disappointments fully cognisant of the fact that the loss of any one particular battle doesn’t necessarily mean that the war that is being fought is itself unwinnable, and for these incredibly self-sufficient and remarkably courageous people winning this particular war of attrition against them and recovering in full what was rightfully, morally and legitimately theirs was undeniably their end game and would be pursued by them no matter how long it took.
And it did take a very long time during which successive British governments callously ignored the plight of the Chaggossian people and even pretended to themselves that no such people existed; that the Chagos Islands were terra nullius, contemptibly resorting to using the same lying, shamefully dishonest and discredited arguments their antecedents had previously and consistently employed in Australia, South Africa and Zimbabwe for example to justify white Caucasian hegemony in these places, and that the people there were in essence either temporary residents or migrant workers from elsewhere who’d sensibly come to realize that the way of life they’d led on the Chagos Islands, seemingly idyllic as it might appear to others looking on from the outside, was no longer sustainable and that’s why of their own accord and with no pressure from anyone they’d sought the help of the British government to find them somewhere else more suitable to live, and quite happy to help Britain had obligingly done just that through negotiating a deal with the Mauritian authorities for them to relocate and take up residence on Mauritius.
This lying but official version of events was the one however that the British government nevertheless chose to promulgate and doggedly stick to, even though it was patently obvious to everyone in the know that what was coming out of London wasn’t by any means the truth and was as far from it as one could possibly get, but it evidently suited Britain’s purposes all the same to maintain this devious lie which beneficially enabled it to get some much desired Brownie points from its American masters and controllers, and to quisling Britain that essentially was all that mattered; for like an ill-favoured and intermittently thought of child, but crucially in the case of the latter situation only when pressing circumstances dictated such a move, desperately keen to please at all time as well as find favour with a largely indifferent but none the less dominant and influential parent or guardian this was the role that Britain pusillanimously chose to adopt for itself vis-à-vis the United States of America and its selfish, imperialistic interests.
