Remember the row over the Iraq war? How we swore blind that we, as the people, wanted no part in it? And still, the then Prime minister Tony Blair stroked US ass and entered into an illegal war anyway?
Remember all of that bad press afterwards and the leaders that went unpunished for their crimes? Yes, their CRIMES…including using banned chemical weapons to murder innocent people.
I was looking through the posts at Facebook today and happened upon a very interesting and informative post by Keith Ordinary Guy titled “A letter a day to No 10”. I shall post it here in full for you to read, share and copy/paste onto your own paper so you too can send it to Downing Street.
First though, follow the links and read what you find there…know that they accuse Syria of using banned chemical weapons in order to justify seeking to bypass the UN in order to kiss Bilderberg butts and allow the corporate world to profit again illegally from the deaths of innocent people.
Are we really prepared, as a nation, to stand by and shake our heads whilst allowing our government to represent us in this manner so we can complain afterwards because we seemingly enjoy a good topic of conversation? This isn’t a Soap Opera, this is REALITY and unless we unite, it’ll just go from bad to worse.
The National Sleep Out Protest against the Bedroom Tax, homelessness and Benefit Cuts that took place in over 50 towns and cities across the UK on Saturday 24th August 2013 has proven that we really can make a difference, as the first article in Keith’s Facebook status proves. So take heed people and more importantly, TAKE ACTION.
Kieth’s status is as follows:
Website updated, letters and replies plus bonus material featuring Mr Suggs, Eeyore and Ribbit.

Dear Mr Cameron,
For a government that has lied to and wilfully deceived the country and brought chaos and despair to so many of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the country such that a UN Watchdog is due to arrive today to investigate the bedroom tax and people being driven to suicide, you are not fit to make any decisions on another sovereign nation. Nor, of course, is Obama, whose troops have used Depleted Uranium weapons in Iraq with devastating consequences for the lives of the Iraqi people. Britain and America are not fit to make decisions about Syria especially as it seems that the debate is to be about an armed response as a first resort and not, as it always should be, a last resort.
Of course, we cannot know who is pulling strings behind the scenes as you are at great pains to avoid declaring corporate interests which we know dominate government decisions and the last people you listen to is us. There is also the matter that the last people to suffer in any armed conflict are those who make the decisions to pursue it. If, as is likely, you create a situation of spreading yet more hatred against the West in the Middle East, it is not you who will suffer the consequences of your actions and we’ll be at risk from yet more rhetoric about extremists and more draconian measures to suppress it and us into the bargain.
Gung ho western interests with more testosterone than brains are doubtless champing at the bit to have a go in Syria and are ready to make vast profits on the proceeds of war. The world is an ever increasingly fragile place, driven by the neoliberal agenda. Given the dominance of neoliberalism in UK politics now, it is unlikely that we’ll see restraint or from you tomorrow. No good will be served by precipitous decisions and whatever the truth is of the situation in Syria, striking first and asking questions later is not a solution. The history of war in recent times does not inspire confidence that civilians will not suffer and the military industrial war machine is not to be trusted any more than you are.
