        The Divided Kingdom had two goes (I think) at Afghanistan in the 19th century, which both failed. Then the Soviet Union, with all its military resources, failed in the 1980s. Now the DK and USA are going to fail together. Why is the pattern obvious to all of us outside the ruling classes, but not to those inside the Wastemonster/Shitehall village? How many more gypsy bikers (great song, Bruce) have to come home in coffins before we get the feck out?

    For the absence of doubt, Bell’s cartoon is the left half of the picture posted, the right half is an old Nazi propaganda picture.

    Bell’s cartoon
    http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/cartoon/2012/nov/15/israel-gaza

    Arguably it’s a bad choice of image, although the thrust of the latter that it is part of an incumbent government’s electoral strategy is somewhat different to the silent global conspiracy idea of the former.

    Question being, does the objection here mean that Bell is only allowed to present in a cartoon the idea that political leaders in country X are conducting policies to orchestrate a desired international reaction if country X is not Israel? Or just that he should find a different way to do it?

    Amazing.
    Such demonisation of Jews by a lefty.
    Litvinoff must be in a tailspin, particualrly as he was replaced by Molotov, so as to assuage Ribbintrop and the Nazi’s apathy towards Jews in general so as to facilitate the infamous Non-Agreesion Pact between Hitler and Stalin of Aug 1939.
    You would think, in this 21st Century, that we in the west would be rather loth to smear people by race or creed, particularly given our PC’ness.
    BUT, NO, Steve Bell feels that he has some divine right to demonise Jewry.
    Amazing, and needless to say no-one will be complaining to the rozzers that this is representative of race hatred and the author should be arrested in a dawn raid and questioned for hours by the filth.

    Yours thoroughly disgusted,

    Funny to read comments complaining of anti-semitism, yet never dealing with the fact that anti-semitism is a reaction to anti-gentilism.

    The juwes aren’t the victims, they foment the wars and have the dumb goyim fight and die while they profit from it all then claim victimhood as everyone reacts to their evil treachery, they just whine and qvetch about everything and print an alternative version of history in their newspapers and programmes on TV.
    Thank God the Mexicans own Hollywood or we’d never get away from the whole horrocost myth revisted every year.

    Ultimately the only reason the above cartoon is inaccurate is because it doesn’t include the entire web of all major politicians across the entire Occident.

    OY Vey, ve kill and murder and slay our way through history, our professors teach the goyim they were the slavemasters, and they always unfairly blame us for our murders…I mean blood libel…it’s dere evil nazi fault, give reparations, I’m a survivor, give money make Moishe happy.

    The commenter at No 72 above, who wrote that “Britain had two goes at Afghanistan in the 19th century, which both failed” is talking historical nonsense.

    All three Afghan Wars (during the 19th-early 20th centuries) in which Britain engaged, despite two early defeats, ended in ultimate victory and a successful achievement of the British war aims.

    These were to ensure that Russia was not able to use Afghanistan as a route to invade India, and to ensure that the ruler of Kabul remained neutral during any major conflict in the area in which Britain was engaged. It was never the aim to occupy Afghanistan in the long-term, much less to add it to the Empire.

    The current NATO war aims are to ensure that Al Quaeda is not able to use Afghanistan as a base from which to attack the West, and to ensure that any future Kabul regime is either friendly or neutral. These aims are perfectly achievable.
