Con Coughlin earns his biscuit

Con Coughlin has earned his establishment biscuit again with a crawling encomium to the sagacity, tolerance, wisdom and mercy of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and urged us all to back the primitive head-choppers against the primitive crane-hangers. I value this man's  barometric qualities highly; if ever in doubt as to which is the right cause to back, it will be the one diametrically opposite to that which Con evinces to earn his biscuits. 

As I have suggested in the past, most folk with a modicum of brain know this is a vicious civil war between primitive Sunni and primitive Shia, and our most advantageous course of action is to flog arms and technology (but of a level below our own) to both sides and stand well back. If the madmen are detonating themselves at each other, they're not detonating themselves amongst us. 

Con is not proud. He'll turn out drivel on demand in support of US torture, the EU and the effort to takeover Ukraine, the benefit of bombing Libya, the decisive impact of our three aircraft in the ME (that have so far dropped four small bombs on Syria) and whatever else his MOD controllers ask him to; for it is quite clear that all Con's stories originate from the line that the MOD would like to take. And with so many of the MOD's personnel and so much bonus-creating profit, not to mention so many members of the Bath and the Michael and George, tied up in dirty Saudi money, he's clearly had his orders to defaecate pro-head choppers drivel. It's a living, I suppose.

Happy New Year Raedwald; I'm very relieved to see that your move abroad has not affected your very astute and excellent blog.

I must admit when I saw Mr. Coughlin's drivel this morning I wondered who was "paying-the-piper"? As any sane person would be very wary of getting any closer to the mad head choppers at the moment. Or even coming out in support of them so openly as Mr. Coughlin has.

I do wonder if the execution of Sheikh Nimr al-Nimr is going to be the Black Swan event of 2016?

Going off on a slight tangent; I did feel a chill going thru me when I heard those words "... your chldren shall inherit your defeats ...' in the latest Daesh video.

gotta laugh at this phrase from CC's drivel:

per capita the Iranians have carried out more executions ...

Given that the Iranians cant afford to buy from us, and wouldnt even if they could, I'm not sure what practicial difference "sell to both sides" and "sell to Saudi", has.

In this case, I'm with Con, open up the armouries to Saudi, Cash on Delivery, let them bankrupt themselves destroying Iran

All our efforts, all our energies should be focused on support, maintenance and to augment; to inciting and encouraging the war between Sunni and Shia - Iran v Sauds.
It is clear, clear as day that, both are our mortal enemies, both regimes vehemently and curse and hate the west and wish to end our very existence therefore; both need to be 'put out'.

I think the problem is that whilst both have deeply unsavoury governments, in the case of Saudi Arabia the people are probably even more extreme than their government whereas in the case of Iran it's the other way around.

I'd rather deal with Iran but I'd prefer to deal with neither.

I will put this link on here and on your British government betrayals post, if I may, Radwaeld?

"The new Shadow Defence Secretary [Emily Thornberry] is going to have difficulty explaining why she accepted thousands of pounds in donations from a law firm which was condemned over false legal claims made against British soldiers. In December 2014, Thornberry took £14,500 from Leigh Day & Co."

1. US torture - Unlawful rendition, check

2. EU and Ukraine - Merkel and Nuland et.al., check

3. Bombing Libya - SAS decapitation operation, check

4. Operation Shader - Flying circus, check

Investigating the role of the Bulgarian mafia in the Syrian conflict would be a good start for Coughlin; to redeem himself, perhaps become a journalist of note for once. These charming gentlemen have been supplying ISIS with psychotropics - mostly Ephedrine, plus few other drugs like Phencyclidine and Ketamine. Facinating story, which wends way back to our old friends at Langley.

The interweb just gets better and better.

Con Coughlin is very evidently the mouthpiece of the security establishment. Virtually everything he writes is the "mainstream" line. That's not to say that there are people within the "security" establishment who know that what Raeders writes is truer than the line sold to the public. It's just that the "security" establishment are bought and sold pedlars of the British arms industry -- in both the Foreign Office, military and SIS. And they just love the Saudi megabucks and the comfy retirement sinecures and "honours" which welcome those who obey.

I don't care which flavour these barbarians come in I just want them dead, killing each other serves as entertainment too.
