They take us for fools!

So President Bush pays the UK a visit and what is the immediate result? Puppet no. 2 after Tony Blair, Gordon Brown, is patted on the back for having more troops in Iraq than he said he would at this time. Next G.B. announces that he is sending even more troops to Afghanistan to make it the highest number ever. Then says he will urge Europe to extend sanctions on Iran including on oil and gas. Er, isn’t there a huge shortage of these which is pushing up prices to near crisis level?

Yesterday Bush said the Taliban was smashed and on the run and Afghanistan was becoming a free and democratic nation. Well, Kabul might be just approaching that ideal but in the rest of the country the Taliban are overseeing the biggest harvest of poppies for heroin production ever, this to be imported into the West. The Taliban attacked a prison only a couple of days ago and released around a thousand prisoners, many of them fighters. Doesn’t sound like a defeated force to me and sadly 102 of our young men in the army have been killed, five last week and hundreds more horribly injured and maimed.

Now I wouldn’t like to see Iran with nuclear weapons and the means of delivery, however, if ‘we’ refuse to honour our agreements by reducing and eventually eliminating these terrors, how can we possibly complain when another country, Iran in this case, says you rely on them why shouldn’t we?

Do these leaders really think that we don’t know what is going on? Do they believe that we don’t see through their ‘double speak’? Do they think we are all fools? The answer to all three questions, regrettably, is yes.
