HAWKS AND DOVES ABOUND BUT OWLS ARE FEW

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

BLOG / FACEBOOK



In the “Desert Shield” Gulf War of 1990, George Bush Senior stopped at the border after chasing the cowardly Iraqis out of Kuwait. He resisted the hawks’ demands that he march on Baghdad, but George Junior had other ideas and in a knee jerk rage in 2003 he decided on an Iraqi regime change. That decision which resulted in his “Mission Completed” farce is the reason for the current Iraq chaos.

Doves are against all wars but a world without wars is the impossible dream only Greens dream. We were born with a war chromosome that drives an insatiable will to win... that’s how we have progressed in everything from sport to commerce. 

Wise old owls are needed now the world is in turmoil but owls are a threatened species now the chips are down.

There are two very different theatres of war being conducted right now for the first time via internet propaganda. People simply don’t trust mainstream media any longer, newspapers are as good as finished and television networks and commentators have pigeonholed themselves into Left/Right dogma.

Three dangerous people are now in charge, Putin, Poroshenko and Obama, and it’s a perilous ternary of self interest that could easily have disastrous outcomes if the wrong button is pushed.

Let’s take Putin first. No-one has asked why he has marshalled his forces in the south east of Ukraine yet it’s obvious he is taking the most direct route to the annexed jewel of Crimea that he needs a land corridor to. 

It is currently isolated and Poroshenko is determined to keep it that way because he, with Europe’s accord, intends to reclaim Crimea... and Putin knows it.

"This is probably the most dangerous situation in Europe since the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968," said a NATO official. "Realistically, we have to assume the Crimea is in Russian hands. The challenge now is to deter Russia from taking over the Russian-speaking east of Ukraine." 

But it’s not really about Russian speaking Ukrainians in the rural east, it’s all about the Crimea and if the Crimea now belongs to Russia why shouldn’t Putin seek to prevent Ukraine regaining it?

There is no road linking Russia with the Crimea, the only road is from Ukraine, so what the hell does the West expect Putin to do? Ask nicely if he can access his own territory?

Putin told Obama during a 90 minute phone call that, “Russia reserved the right to protect its interests and those of Russian speakers in Ukraine and to protect its Black Sea fleet in the Crimea”. Obama warned if he persisted, “there would be costs”, meaning puerile sanctions.

Obama can’t have it both ways, either he admits the Crimea is Russian and convinces Poroshenko to allow Putin land access or he agrees to Ukraine reclaiming it. The latter option is World War III.

Obama’s hawkish attitude to Russia is not reflected in Iraq. He has a political reason not to have troops there, yet if ever US troops were needed, and with immediate UN approval, it’s right now. 

Australia and Canada are leaving the US in their wake with native common sense. It’s pointless trying to assist the Iraqis, they are mired in Islamic clans and will join whoever gains the ascendancy.

The Kurdish peshmergas (meaning those who confront death) will bravely fight to the death for their northern homelands and can be trusted with the weapons Australia is already dropping. They even withstood Saddam Hussein and his Sunni gas weapons. Given armoury they will be more than a match for the craven ISIL.

The peshmerga have never really been tested since a US led invasion toppled Saddam in 2003. While the Shias and Sunnis engaged in wholesale sectarian slaughter, Kurdistan remained free from the bloodshed, possessing mostly AK-47 rifles which proved little help after the Iraqi army surrendered their US tanks, anti-aircraft weapons and machine guns to ISIL. 

Air strikes are a waste of time without troops on the ground relaying coordinates. One 400lb bomb for each suspected ute is an exercise in futility. (ISIL have already swapped their utes for sedans.) The free world is praying for Obama to act so they too can commit troops but Obama is busy in a bunker somewhere.

ISIL believes it has God’s approval to steal murder and rape and Obama must take the lead in proving them wrong. There is no time to lose and for every minute he equivocates the threat increases exponentially. 

Islamic communities that have infested the West are excited and emboldened by ISIL’s apparent successes and they are clambering to assist.

Obama says he doesn’t yet have a strategy when there is clearly only one strategy available, ground troops supported by air strikes. 

Of the three most dangerous people in charge of these two incendiary war zones, Obama is the most frightening,.. watch:

Bullshit Marco.

twright, if you read anything or looked at anything apart from the bullshit they put on MSM you would find out that it was more than likely shot down by a Ukraine jet fighter. All part of the plan to demonise and blame Russia Ukriane is being used as Pawn By the US to try and start WW3

Saw that! For those here in this thread who did not - The BBC put that image (of this battalion) right there on their article, as representative of 'Ukraine army'! This was a cracker. Most think the journo's were oblivious to the fact.

Good article on RT today on the fascists of the Azov battalion. Nazi insignia of SS Das Reich and behaviour to match.

To add to this, they then called 'for a legal election', where Poroshenko was elected. However, this was done when the following things were in play - 90% of the east of Ukraine were either blocked from voting - or refused to vote - mostly because - any of the candidates that has a pro-Russian friendship bone in their body were beaten bloody and families were threatened with death, so they stepped down from the ticket in the so called 'legal election'. This current government is a fraud. The most legally representational election/poll had in Ukraine in the last year was in Crimea where 89% of the entire Crimea popn turned out to the polls and 95 % (inc minorities) voted to join Russia.

kfj2350, that is 'technically correct', or should I say 'publicly correct', but it is not taking into consideration the complete picture which is the same as leaving out a basic fact or premise. In fact the main fact upon which all other illusions are built is that Ukraine was taken over by an illegal coup - a coup that was backed by Washington. Poroshenko is taking orders from Washington. That means Ukraine is NOT blocking Russia from Crimea, Washington is. Add that to stringybarks point - and you get the 'motive' for the initial coup. NATO/Washington used the coup to gain illegal control over Ukraine, and to weaken Russia's relationship with the formerly (like the leaders people vote for or not) legally elected Ukraine leadership

“The way to have good and safe government is not to trust it all to one, but to divide it among the many, distributing to every one exactly the functions he is competent to.

Let the national government be entrusted with the defense of the nation, and its foreign and federal relations; the State governments with the civil rights, law, police, and administration of what concerns the State generally; the counties with the local concerns of the counties, and each ward direct the interests within itself.

It is by dividing and subdividing these republics from the great national one down through all its subordinations, until it ends in the administration of every man’s farm by himself; by placing under every one what his own eye may superintend, that all will be done for the best.

What has destroyed liberty and the rights of man in every government which has ever existed under the sun? The generalizing and concentrating all cares and powers into one body.”

– Thomas Jefferson

Greetings Sheeples,

Somebody asked me the other day “When will the Next Terrorist Attack take Place ?”

And “What Form will it Take ?”

Geez! - As if I am any Wiser than ASIO or the CIA.

OK When? – Since the Illuminati are so Fixated on Symbolism, I would hazard a Guess at the 11th of THIS Month. NB:- The Illuminati put Great Significance in the No. 11.
AND It’s the ANNIVERSARY of their BIGGEST CON.

They already have their Villains in place who Everybody already HATES and who will be Flattered to claim responsibility for.
eg. “Look how we can strike the Infidel so easily any time we like” – “Join NOW Comrades”

What Form? – Well it needs to be something so Horrific that it will FORCE The “Great and Powerful Obama” to reluctantly commit USA once again to go to a WAR footing against Terrorism. (As if THAT’S not what he wants – eh?)

9/11 Was an Inside Job
Oh.....What’s the Use ?

If an election was held tomorrow who do you believe would win?

Coalition

85.1%

Labor

3.8%

Labor/Green

3.8%

No idea

7.3%

YOU WISH!

"1990, George Bush Senior stopped at the border after chasing the cowardly Iraqis out of Kuwait."?

WTF? Kuwait was slant drilling (stealing) into Iraq's oil. Eight days before the invasion, Iraq asked the US through Ambassador April Glaspie if they could go into Kuwait and kick some butt. The US said "We have no opinion on your Arab-Arab conflicts,"

The incubator babies story was false as well.

He seems like he's a Muslim to this little bunny rabbit, if ya don't reckon so ya must be a Elma Fudd!

A E at least it would be a start. Bet the Greens would object though. When all the fighting stops I would like to see them all 'encouraged' somehow to go back home & let Australia get back to the country I loved. Can't see it happening though not when there is one rule for us & another for them.

Elizabeth when in prison no pensions however it would be best now they are overseas just cancel their passports then they cannot come back, also stop all Centrelink payments to their families. So use taxpayers save money. 18c should be immediately revoked who else agrees.

WOW A most moving speech from someone I'd never heard of: - Sheree Trotter -
A Maori Woman Stands Up For Israel
http://www.israellycool.com/2014/08/10/a-maori-woman-stands-up-for-israel/

DJT why should I as a taxpayer pay for their stay in prison? These people are committing treson. When their term is completed they become twice the monsters that they are

Bongo you have me in fits of laughter right

Devil, the first action of Abbott and Co. was to double the national debt limit and you can bet that much military related spending since will involve outlay from borrowings. John Howard overspent very wastefully and Abbott will be worse.

I have family in Ukraine and Russia and what they tell me is exactly what is reported in our MSM not the propaganda from that lieing c**t Putin. He wants Poland and Estonia back under his control also. I pulled my cattle from the live export contract to Russia and got 15c kg more in the local market yesterday and do not have to freight any to Portland. A win win. Fuck the Russians. They shot down and killed 38 Australians on a holiday flight.
