Only way is to fight for our ideals

GIVE our fighting men and women all the support they need to finish the job

MAKE you laugh don’t they? Or perhaps crying would be a more appropriate reaction. I’m talking about the politicians who this week voted against bombing Daesh targets in Syria; or more specifically, the main excuse they used to justify themselves. 

‘Ah’ they simpered; ‘If we do this we would give them an excuse to bring more acts of terror onto our streets.’ Just how many ‘acts of terror’ do they need before they get some bottle and realise we are in a war?  

We’ve had a soldier almost beheaded in the street, buses and trains blown up, an unprecedented rise in the number of Islamic terror plots uncovered, and this week a knife attack on innocent victims by an Islamist lunatic in a tube station. 

What will it take to wake these pacifist pillocks up in the real world? A dirty bomb in the middle of Trafalgar Square? Don’t believe that’s beyond the realms of possibility either! If we continue to turn the other cheek, we’ll have ‘em both sliced off. 

Please don’t get my attitude wrong. I too believe that peace and love among all human beings is the final harmony that will bring us all together as one. But vast numbers of others don’t! Millions would like to see all the non-believers of their violent and suppressive religious views, wiped off the face of the Earth. 

The only way for us to live in a peaceful democracy is to put all our ideals on hold and fight for it. The words of an elite ‘Gunny’ sergeant, who was guarding the American Embassy when I lived in Jeddah comes to mind. I had many long discussions with this remarkable man, who believed fervently in peace and the love of our fellow men. 

He also firmly believed that some of us are put on this world to fight and preserve it. And that, he said, was the job of him and his fellow servicemen. 

Give our fighting men and women all the support and weaponry they need to finish the job. Hopefully at least our children will then be able to enjoy a future filled with the peace and love we all so passionately desire. 

Keep the Faith
Love Leapy

      I am an ex serviceman and alas I don’t have time to express all of my feelings on this subject. I do feel sure that Leapy is NOT anti Muslim.
      He is for sure anti stupidity, racist and murder.

      I f I may just quote Mohammed Ali. A world class boxer who’s wit was and is as fast as his punch.
      Ali’s wise words on this subject….

      “True Muslims know that the ruthless violence of so called Islamic Jihadists goes against the very tenets of our religion,” he said.

      “These misguided murderers have perverted people’s views on what Islam really is.”

      “I am a Muslim and there is nothing Islamic about killing innocent people in Paris, San Bernardino, or anywhere else in the world.”

      “Muslims have to stand up to those who use Islam to advance their own personal agenda”.

      That says a lot to me.. I hope that decent Muslims are hearing him.

      Well said Leapy! Personally, I think it is the job of the United Nations to get together an international force, much like they did in 1950 with the Korean war, and put an end to all terrorist groups throughout the world.
      But seeing as the best they can do is verbally ‘condemn’ the actions taken by ISIS and other groups, it will up to us and our NATO Allies to solve the problem.

      Isis is fully funded and supported by the US, UK and others as a cover and rationale for an illegal attack against Assad. Which fully explains why they had little effect against them until the Russians showed up. Now the same war criminals are trying very hard to keep the fig leaf in place. Not working very well. All the anti Muslim rhetoric is an attempt to get we the sheeple to get behind their criminal intent by scaring us silly..the author of this piece is complicit in this strategy.

      Before we all get carried away with Islamiphobia, let us consider the recent comments of a British soldier who lost his leg during a road side bomb explosion, near Basra.
      He says on FaceBook and reported by the BBC…..
      Yes a Muslim blew me up and I lost a leg.
      A Muslim man lost his arm that day, wearing a British Uniform.
      A Muslim medic was in the helicopter that took me from the field.
      A Muslim surgeon performed the surgery that saved my life.
      A Muslim nurse was part of the team that helped me on my return to U.K.
      A Muslim taxi driver gave me a free ride, when I went for my first beer with my dad, after I came home.

      Also read Mohammed Ali’s comments in this paper.
      There are good and bad in every nation and religion.
      The bad ones will lose eventually, they always do, History has proven this.

      You can never trust a Muslim. They are on a different agenda, of course some are good and honest citizens, BUT: and it a big but, many of them are indoctrinated to think that all none followers of Islam are lesser humans!!
