Gordon’s Afghan Summit Excuse for Pre-Election Photo-Op

Funny how desperate Gordon is to have a New Year summit on Afghanistan in London. Withdrawal from Afghanistan could be some kind of a legacy for him. More likely the real reason he wants the summit is so he can get a few photo-ops that feed into his “Gordon leads the world delusion” in time for the General Election.  Remember back in March how he milked the London G20 Summit for all it was worth, desperate for a little stardust to be sprinkled on him during strolls and photographs with Obama?

That fawning and excruciatingly embarrassing joint interview (above) in Washington last March?

Gordon wants a pretext to bring Obama to London so he can play the international statesman saving the world again in the run up to the election.

          That photo opportunity is now deferred till January. Presumably to coincide with the news that finally, after the longest and deepest recession in UK history we have finally, after 200bn quid of borrowed and squandered money managed to engineer a single quarter of ‘growth’.

          Then he’ll declare the recession over thanks to taking the tough decision to borrow another 200bn quid and keep paying his one million deadweights, arseholes and boxtickers he recruited back in 2002. And, for good measure, because he’s not one for undue modesty or even a tenuous grip of reality he’ll claim that Obama is actually in the UK to thank him personally for saving the entire world.

          For his part, Miliband seems smitten, too. “She applies intellect but also psychology to the dossiers that she’s studying. She uses her experience in a very impressive way. She brings it to bear in a way that enriches a conversation but doesn’t swamp it. She learns from history without being trapped by it. I think it’s also important to say that she’s delightful to deal with one on one. She’s someone who laughs and can tease, and she’s got perspective as well.”

      Withdrawal (if you can call it that when you’re not really making progress) from Afghanistan is just as timed for electioneering as withdrawal from Basra and the fiscal deficit in the years before the autumn of 2007 (yep, Brown ran a deficit when the UK also had a trade deficit and a zilch household savings ratio and got Blanchflower on the MPC to help him win the elections).

        I seem to recall that the entire world was a bit pissed off post Sept 11 as a result of the Afghan government at the time harbouring certain folk who were implicated. It was a pretty unanimous decision to go into Afghanistan after the fuckers. Even the UN agreed.

        The problem came when Bush and Blair pushed their luck with the ‘righteous war’ gambit and rigged a completely unnecessary war in Iraq. The passage of time has allowed those of a shorter attention span to conflate the two as being equally meritless. Indeed the obvious lies used to justify the Iraq war have, rightly, thrown suspicion onto the whole justification for the war in Afghanistan. After all if the US was prepared to start a war in Iraq using bogus intelligence perhaps they did the same in Afghanistan. Why would you trust ‘em over Afghanistan and not Iraq?

        The whole thing is a clusterfuck and Bush, Blair and Brown are jointly and severally liable as a result of their insane decision to start a war in Iraq.

          The attacks on the 11th September 2001 were specifically intended to draw revenge-seeking US forces into Afghanistan so that AlQ and their Taleban and other allies could inflict upon them a similar defeat to that which they inflicted on the Soviets, on the basis that if they could bring down one superpower, they can bring down another. It’s a flawed analogy as the Islamists have a very inflated idea of their own importance in the Soviet-Afghan War and conveniently tend to ignore the fact that they were armed and funded by the Great Satan during that conflict (just as the loudest voices in America and elsewhere for attacking Muslim countries tend to conveniently ignore the unpalatable truth that these extremists are the direct result of their own countries’ policies)

          In 2001 I didn’t really think that the Americans would fall headfirst into this trap, but they did, and it rapidly became obvious thatn they’d never catch ObL and his chums, and that the idea of AlQ would resurface as something else. Nor did I seriously think that the Americans would get themselves and us stuck there for years to come. Anything that might have been achieved got frittered away by the pointless and criminal Iraq adventure that did more to encourage Islamist terrorism than anything AlQ might have managed by themselves, and to be honest I think that geo-politically the whole business had more to do with surrounding Iran than it did as part of the “War Of Terror.”

          As it is, the West’s Afghan affair has gone the way of the Soviet occupation and will end up with much the same result – a humiliating withdrawal followed by the rapid collapse of the puppet govt and a further long period of lawless warlordism. Billions wasted and thousands dead and all for nothing, bar a few photo-ops for tw4tty politicians and an awful lot of money in the hands of corrupt Afghan politicans and western “security consultants.”

          But at least there was a genuine consensus and legality over the Afghan adventure, regardless of its execution and outcome, unlike the Iraq debacle.

            all of the above would, ofcourse, need to be authorised by a court of law. but they did it to the war criminal saddam hussein, so if the above are also found guilty of war crimes and torture crimes then they should accept no favour or different sentence. if hanging is good enough for saddam then it is good enough for these traitors.
            but whatever happens I must say that I am rather looking forward to the next parliament.
            this could be very interesting indeed: the next hung parliament has the potential to be, by default, one of the most democratic British Parliaments of the 21st Century.

      Hence that is twice now he has flown off to the US with zero notice and no invitation declaring that he’s off to see the president. And both times he had to hang around outside the White House for hours trying to look inconspicuous and nonchalent while the UK ambassador pleads with his US counterpart for a five minute meeting just so that Brown (and by extension, the entire UK) isn’t totally humiliated.

    So, in 2 month’s time he’s going to talk to someone to formulate a strategy? What the fuck? It should have been done 8 years ago. If nobody else in nato or the un can be arsed to formulate one then we should have formulated one for ourselves and stuck to that.

    I’m at a loss to understand why Brown hasn’t been crucified over this; fighting a war for 8 years with absolutely no idea/plan of what they want to achieve or how to achieve it?

    It’s very very simple, Gordon, you don’t need to form endless committees to work it out, and you don’t even need to speak to the un or nato, here’s what you do you fucking negligent bastard:

    1) In the regions that the UK is currently responsible for in Afghanistan, you train a handful of Afghanistanis to the level that those people can then train more Afghanistanis.

    2) You get the fuck out of their country and leave them to it.

    The solution to our woes in Afghanistan is to pay people to be our friends. This is apparantly the solution being tried out by the army now – but it was ever thus. I keep reccomending my old mate Michael Griffin’s book on Afghanistan and the Taliban – reaping the whirlwind. That came out just beofre 9/11 but the answers are all in there. In Afghanistan there is a fighting season – spring summer and early autumn (and there always has been – it’s what they do) – and then in the winter there’s the bargaining season – where you make alliances, break alliances, sell your sword to the higest bidder (this is what they do).

    So if we want to break our habit, and win an afghan campaign, we should follow suit. Buy our friends. And they’re cheap. Cheaper than our soldiers’ blood. Blood we had no need to spill.

    Gordon’s going to announce some great new policy of talking to the Taliban – something that could have been done eight years ago. SOmething some of us were suggesting then – if we really wanted involvement there. Eight wasted years, thousands of wasted lives, but hey, Gordon gets to look like a statesman, and that’s what it’s all about.

    QE is just postponing the problem.. says:

    European government bonds will beat Treasurys in the next nine months as investors bet the region’s central bank is better placed than the Federal Reserve to contain inflation, according to Raiffeisen KAG.

    The German 10-year bund will yield as much as 40 basis points less than the similar-maturity Treasury note by the end of June, said Christian Zima, a bond fund manager at the company in Vienna. The U.S. and the UK have been more aggressive than European policy makers in the measures they introduced to counter the worst recession since World War II, Zima said. That’s increased the prospect of inflation, he said.

    “We are not so negative on Europe,” said Zima, who helps oversee about US$43 billion in assets. “The European Central Bank hasn’t introduced quantitative easing like the Fed or the Bank of England , so the long- term inflation credibility is an asset that should support government bonds.”

    So, Gordumb’s going to be hosting a summit for Barry in London, is he?

    It sounds important.

    We’d better ask if the new head cook at the American Embassy can put a couple of chairs out in the kitchen for them this time.

    Obama is a Twat says:

    I see Toenails was doing his usual shit tonight on the BBC news defending the one eyed twat over YET ANOTHER dead soldier’s comments to his family over the lack of kit.

    Did Toenails actually have his words written by Downing Street in his hands as he spoke?

    Toenails wanking on about how new body armour wouldn’t save lives, but what about other kit Toenails?

    How about scrapping the BBC and giving the money to the military instead?

    The only time Toenails apperas on the news these days is when the one eyed mong is in trouble.

    That fawning and excruciatingly embarrassing…

    “I’m enjoying watching Barack Obama. I think he’s a brilliant speaker, I think his optimism and sense of hope for the future is inspiring a lot of people. It’s great to see. Too often [politics] gets down to hope and fear and I think it’s wonderful when hope wins. I’m enjoying watching him, I must say. I think he’s compelling,” Cameron told Radio 5 Live’s Breakfast programme.

    “What people like is the sense that Obama generates, that we don’t have to be like this, we can do better… I think we need that same sense of possibility here.”

      And he’ll still be treated like a used tampon like Brown has been.

      Yurp needs to get off the Hussein love train. It’s making them look stupid.

Ralph Miliband on the English…

“The Englishman is a rabid nationalist. They are perhaps the most nationalist people in the world.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
