they got the wrong man. and they have experience doing just that.

Looking for the right words to convey how hypocritical not to mention stupid the politics of various statesmen are.

I don’t know if the news from Syria and the claimed “massacres” are big news in the USA.  I imagine they are as a report here says the govt. (USA) is very unhappy with the Assad regime.  Like Britain and the USA haven’t got our hands full in Afghanistan and other troubled places around the world, now our unwanted noses are sniffing around Syria.  Why?  Ah. The buzzword of our new century. CIVILIANS.  Right. Washington, London, Paris and paid ‘friends’ are concerned that civilians are suffering boo-boos like they did in Libya.  And every atrocity committed is all done on the orders of Mr. Assad, we are told to assume.
One Brit official is even now openly saying military option is open. In fact, British Foreign Minister William Hague said military intervention against Syria’s President Bashar Assad would be on a much larger scale than in Libya.  So there.  What I would like to know is, why should we care?  Why is it the business of outsiders as to how Assad deals with his internal problems? 
I hate to say this but I will risk the slings and arrows because saving one group of foreigners from their fellow citizens in what looks more like a brewing civil war,
is not only none of our damn business.  If it comes to what Mr. Hague suggests, then I hope that the Syrians will prove to be a tougher foe and much better prepared and more willing to fight then was the case in Iraq and Libya.  Unless our leaders can come up with a better reason for intervention in a sovereign country, like our own national security interests, instead of this uman rights BS, I see it as another ill advised waste of money and resources that benefit a few.
I don’t really care if Assad wipes out half his population to stay in office.  Those folks are less then nothing to me. If on the other hand there’s some proof of some kind that has to do with the support of terrorists operating against us and the west, then the proper response is a nuclear strike.  If we aren’t willing to go that far, then we need to keep ourselves to ourselves and let those folks sort out their own problems.

OK, speaking of human rights and atrocities and thuggery and the oppression of civilians.  Assad of Syria faced with armed insurrection kills a few thousand ppl.  That’s bad and we must go in and stop him.

Mugabe steals farms and kills a few hundred white farmers and multiple thousands of his own ppl.  Yawn. Ho-hum. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
What?  Aren’t we going to go in armed to the teeth to protect the remaining “civilians” he’s been persecuting for years?  zzzzzzzzzzzzz
Of course not. Not a bit of it. In fact. Why not an award or something?  Ya think?


Zimbabwean dictator Robert Mugabe is honoured by UN as a ‘leader for tourism’

By JASON GROVES

DURING his three decades in power, Robert Mugabe has dragged once-wealthy Zimbabwe into the gutter.
His forced seizure of white-owned farms precipitated the collapse of the economy, leading to devastating poverty.

He has the blood of tens of thousands of his people on his hands and is banned from travelling to most parts of the world because of his regime’s human rights abuses.
Strange then that the United Nations has honoured the tyrant as a tourism ‘ambassador’.

In a move prompting condemnation, the UN’s World Tourism Organisation has invited Mugabe to join its prestigious ‘Leaders for Tourism’ group.
The UN agency last night claimed the accolade did not bestow any honour on the despot. But critics last night attacked the decision to recognise the 88-year-old.

For a man who has destroyed his country’s infrastructure and cynically engineered hunger to be an “ambassador” for tourism is disgraceful – particularly as he has been personally responsible for the downward spiral of the economy and destroyed the hotel, travel and tourism industry in the process.’

Tory MP Oliver Colvile added: ‘I’m afraid the UN has something of a track record of making silly appointments without due regard to the circumstances.
‘Mugabe has destroyed Zimbabwe’s economy and does not deserve any recognition, least of all for encouraging tourism.’

Kumbi Muchemwa, a spokesman for Zimbabwe’s Movement for Democratic Change, the main opposition party, said: ‘Robert Mugabe is under international sanctions, so how do you have an international tourism ambassador who can’t travel to other countries? The UN is losing credibility. Does it think people should go to a country where the law is not obeyed?’

Mugabe was honoured on Tuesday as a ‘Global Leader for Tourism’ in a special ceremony at Victoria Falls. Taleb Rifai, secretary-general of the UNWTO, made the presentation and endorsed Zimbabwe as a ‘safe’ holiday destination.

The US however is among a number of countries that have issued advice warning about the dangers of travelling in Zimbabwe, despite its natural beauty.

The UNWTO claims to promote ‘ethical’ tourism around the world. Its 155 member states include such unlikely tourist destinations as Afghanistan and North Korea.

A spokesman for the agency denied Mugabe had been made an international ambassador. It said he was one of a number of world leaders who had been presented with a ‘leaders for tourism’ letter inviting them to do more to promote tourism. He said there was no legal commitment or title attribution to the head of state in question.

Further proof that the United Nations is a corrupt circus designed to allow tinpot tyrants to masquerade as world statesmen. Robert Mugabe, the blood-stained Zimbabwean despot, has just been appointed the UN’s ‘tourism envoy’. Perhaps he could start by organising bus trips of the killing fields in his own country. Making Mugabe a ‘tourism envoy’ is the sickest joke since Gaddafi was appointed to the UN’s ‘human rights’ commission.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
