Britisk selvhad al-Guardian style

Londonistan — Sobieski on April 16, 2007 at 9:40 am

Denne særlige engelske kulturradikale pamflet får vor egen Politiken til at ligne Fox News. Londonistan har været forest med at omfavne multikulturalismen, længst fremme, avantgarden, man kan sige de ligger på det yderste.

Left-wing loonie’en John Pilger commenterer i Guardian:

We cannot look from the sides as we are led towards crisis over Iran

The Israeli journalist Amira Hass describes the moment her mother, Hannah, was marched from a cattle train to the concentration camp at Bergen-Belsen. “They were sick and some were dying,” she said. “Then my mother saw these German women looking at the prisoners. This image became very formative in my upbringing, this despicable ‘looking from the side’.”

It is time we in Britain stopped looking from the side. We are being led towards perhaps the most serious crisis in modern history as the Bush/Cheney/Blair “long war” edges closer to Iran for no reason other than that nation’s independence from rapacious America.

…The Bush administration, in secret connivance with Blair, has spent four years preparing for “Operation Iranian Freedom”.

…And yet there is a surreal silence in Britain, except for the noise of “news” in which powerful broadcasters gesture cryptically at the obvious, but dare not make sense of it lest the one-way moral screen erected between us and the consequences of an imperial foreign policy collapses, and the truth is revealed.

“The days of Britain having to apologise for the British empire are over,” declared Gordon Brown to the Daily Mail. “We should celebrate!” In Late Victorian Holocausts, the historian Mike Davis documents that as many as 21 million Indians died unnecessarily in famines criminally imposed by British policies. And since the formal demise of that glorious imperium, declassified official files make clear that British governments have borne “significant responsibility” for the direct or indirect deaths of between 8.6 million and 13.5 million people throughout the world - from imperial military interventions and at the hands of regimes strongly supported by Britain. The historian Mark Curtis calls these victims “unpeople”. “Rejoice!” said Thatcher. “Celebrate!” says the paymaster of Blair’s bloodbath. Spot the difference.

Den marxistiske historiker Mike Davis trækkes frem som sandhedsvidne: 21 millioner indere døde som følge af britisk imperiel politik, holocaust, holocaust! Tesen er at den kapitalistiske økonomi fjernede nogle protektionistiske mekanismer, hvorved alle disse mennesker døde. Nu kan undertegnede komme i tanke om massere af protektionistiske planøkonomier som har været ramt af sult-katastrofer, men gæt hvis skyld det også er… kapitalismens. En teori der er umulig at falsificere? Det tror jeg vist nok! Typisk marxisme.

“This Labour government, which includes Gordon Brown as much as it does Tony Blair,” wrote Richard Horton, the editor of the Lancet, “is party to a war crime [Irak krigen] of monstrous proportions. Yet our political consensus prevents any judicial or civil society response. Britain is paralysed by its own indifference.” Such is the scale of the crime and of our “looking from the side”.

Hvor er det lige England og USA begår disse monstrøse krigsforbrydelser? Ingen steder, men det er alligevel blevet til et figenblad for den desperate venstrefløj. Forstå mig ret, der er legitime argumenter mod Irak invasionen, men det er ikke det samme som at der foreligger en krigsforbrydelse.

Nothing like this piracy has happened before in the modern Middle East. Across the Shatt al-Arab waterway the other prize: Iran’s vast oilfields. Just as non-existent weapons of mass destruction or facile concerns for democracy had nothing to do with the invasion of Iraq, so non-existent nuclear weapons have nothing to do with an American onslaught on Iran. Unlike Israel and the United States, Iran has abided by the rules of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has never cited Iran for diverting its civilian programme to military use. For the past three years IAEA inspectors have said that they have been allowed to “go anywhere”. The recent security council sanctions against Iran are the result of Washington’s bribery.

Løgne! Iran har holdt deres atom-program skjult i årevis og de har heller ikke overholdt deres aftale fra 2003 med atom energi agenturet.

Until recently the British were unaware that their government was one of the world’s most consistent abusers of human rights and backers of state terrorism. Few knew that British intelligence set out systematically to destroy secular Arab nationalism and in the 1980s recruited and trained young Muslims as part of a $4bn Anglo-American-backed jihad against the Soviet Union. The fuse of the bombs that killed 52 Londoners was lit by “us”.

Aha, sådan. Vi er langt værre end alle de diktaturstater vi normalt undsiger. Man skal lede længe efter end så smagløs, uanstændig og helt ude i hegnet udtalelse som den sidste sætning i det ovenstående. Det John Pilger siger er: “De mørklødede horder har ingen fri vilje, det er i virkeligheden os der kontrolerer og dirigerer deres adfærd. Skulle de slå til mod os, sig selv eller andre, er det som en konsekvens af vores politik og historie. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.”

  1. Her er lidt mere power til dine pointer:

    IAEA: Iran er begyndt at berige uran
    En FN-organisation bekræftede onsdag, at det iranske styre er begyndt at berige uran.
