“This is a global threat and it will require a global response. It will require a response that is about years, even decades, rather than months…It is linked to al Qaida, it wants to destroy our way of life, it believes in killing as many people as it can. We need to work with others to defeat the terrorists and to close down the ungoverned spaces where they thrive with all the means that we have, said Cameron, as spittle formed on the side of his mouth and the war pigs drooled at possibility of a new source of profits battling warlords in North Africa, not to mention all those juice natural resources to re-exploit.
This is completely bug-fuck insane. I don’t know how else to put that. I hope Cameron’s just talking tough, but I sadly am sure he isn’t.
The plan is that the West should be picking fights against these locally-focused groups where there is no clear and present need to. By broadening the Great War on Terror to fighting these groups just in case they one day turn their gazes to the West, we’ll pretty much guarantee that they’ll do exactly.
And that’s really the point isn’t it. The war pigs demand new theaters for war, regardless of who gets killed. And if Islamists attack here then that mean increased drone and gun to law enforcement, doesn’t it?
