Condoleeza Rice, Jack Straw, George W. Bush, Tony Blair, Iraq, Elsewhere, Freedom, Democracy And My Mate Mark From Ireland ...
What a wonderful pair of warm hearted human beings Mizz Condoleeza Rice and The Right Honorable Mister Jack Straw are, eh?
Bravely battling to bring freedom and democracy aplenty to the all the poor people -- in places like Iraq -- whether the people asked for [ or even ever wondered about, let alone wanted], Geo W's particular perverted brands, or not.
Why, these two [contemptible crappy] Counterfeit-Christians are almost as devotedly devout and uncompromisingly committed to carrying out God's good works as their mad King George is.
Well, wouldn't you say so too? Since, as is always the case with such cowardly crooks as themselves, what they 'say' is definitely not what anyone 'gets': never - not ever.
Actually, as shown so spectacularly simply, by the shocking centre photo above, what we 'see' there is what we 'get' -- or rather, what the allegedly 'liberated' get. Moreover, the monsters who've made their lives [and deaths] so manifestly miserable, make matters much worse by rubbing salt in their victims' open wounds. They tell them they should show some appreciation. They dare to demand gratitude, even. They are so, so sick.
Almost makes one want to puff up one's chest and jut out one's chin with pride, doesn't it ?
Okay, maybe making mirth out of misery might make many, more than a mite offended, so the sarcasm stops here. But please believe that any & all of This Old Brit's & Richard's desert-dry and sometimes snide asides, are without exception genuinely & sincerely well intended -- and each of us hope with all our heart that over the last year this has become perfectly plain to people who regularly read and post here.
( For which, incidentally, we are so genuinely grateful and immensely indebted.)
But onward, ever onward.
One such regular, runs two remarkable blogs of his own. And you'd better believe he knows exactly what he's talking out, on all matters middle East, from first hand experience -- as both a military man and a professional peacekeeper. Also note that we don't just mean about Iraq either. Not by a long chalk.
So we [so-called] seniors will shut up for a while now, so you can see for yourself -- but before we do bugger off, may we strongly suggest that when you're done reading these highly recommended blogs, you stash both said site links safely away -- say, in the form of 'favourites' and/or 'bookmarks'.
Right, then. Now to the nitty-gritty bits.
Here's his first blog link -- which, while we wouldn't want in any way to offend him, we'll liken this one to the author/editor's 'tabloid-type' title.
And here's his second: Mark from Ireland, which, because it's quite simply his long time online monicker, we're certain you'll recognise right away. This one, by the way, is much more of a 'broadsheet' - blog wise.
Please look carefully through them both at your leisure -- and learn.
Finally, as per usual we'd ask that any appreciation for our friend's fantastic fortitude is made known to him at his site[s] -- for he's certainly suffered more than his fair share of personal problems & misfortunes, of late -- yet still, he tirelessly sticks to his self appointed task[s].
As truthtellers go, Mark's a mountain of a man: a tower of strength.
There -- now we old pair have said it -- will you?
