The news that Royal Navy shipbuilding in England is to end after 600 years is only the latest chapter in the story of how, over the past 30 years, successive governments and a dysfunctional Ministry of Defence have progressively brought about the virtual destruction of our Armed Forces. Much more than is widely realised, however, there has also been a strong EU dimension to this sorry tale.

Stemming from the vicar’s call on how obscene it is to be supporting one’s nation, one commenter wrote:
What about the Kingdom of God?
[He’s an atheist, by the way.]
Pah, this loyalty towards your country is bullcrap, your country is imaginary lines on a map. In effect, a tax farm. Vicar talks sense … I do not agree with warfare … There are no countries and a flag is a piece of cloth. People aren’t inherently violent anyway.
I find that staggering on so many levels.
Firstly, I also do not believe in warfare and every Armistice Day I run a link to an article on how WW1 was entirely contrived – another thing most people now know – in fact it was booked to happen. The PTB are angling for another war right now as we are on a precipice of debt and there hasn’t been a good all-in conflagration for some time to keep the wheels of the MIC rolling.
At the same time, it won’t be us fighting it – no planes, no ships, dismissed armed forces, no defences. And the threat very real and very close, as the above material shows.
And into this comes someone denying the very thing our fathers and mothers fought for in WW2 – our sovereignty and freedom, for both were on the line. It’s not a question of the cynical use of a flag and country to justify war – I agree with that – but of the pride people feel in their nation … or used to before it was ruined by Labour mainly.
I’m thinking of my father and mother right now and what they’d make of that commenter’s statement.
Theodore Roosevelt had it right when he spoke of speaking softly but carrying a big stick. The issue is not how pacifist we feel or how contrived the nation is as a concept – the issue is that others, e.g. Germany or part of it where the Bruderheist keeps pushing out their Merkels, remain of a different opinion and with different intentions.
We were warned before 1939 and people also said pah, it’s bullcrap. We then saw what happened and how ill-prepared we were. Do you really, really think things have substantially altered? That the EU’s purpose was to bring peace?
And look at its antecedents, the League of Nations and UN – have they benefited the world or blighted it with Agenda 21 and such like?
