Not Our Problem, Not Our War

Michael Portillo, the former Conservative Secretary of State for Defence, writes in today's 'Sunday Times' that 'The bloody truth is that Israel's war is our war'.
This is a lie written in blood.
As Pat Buchanan wrote so eloquently last week, Israel's "response to the capture of two soldiers had all the spontaneity of the Schlieffen Plan."
The invasion of Lebanon is 'A Clean Break: Phase II'. 'A Clean Break: Phase I' involved Russell Beeston losing his life in Caroline Glick's war, cattle to the slaughter.
The bunch of well heeled thugs who dominate the Conservative Party's leadership and discourse, from the upscale wallpaper heir George Osborne to the Aberdonian Rick Moranis lookalike Michael Gove, avidly peddling the same sort of guff in last Thursday's 'Daily Express', were all lockstep in their support for that war; and although they lack the guts for real streetfighting's consequences, they must have skipped into the lobbies because it gave them an opportunity to do through proxies what they'd all love to do in their own crappy realities - go out and really, really stamp on someone else's head.
Give them a brain injury.
Kill them.
The Conservative Party is run by a coterie of corner boys all happy to maintain Britain's rich history of gang violence, in the grand tradition of the Inter City Firm and Norman Conks and Billy Boys all the way back to the Hellfire Club.
They all love war - so let them fight it.
The United Kingdom has no interests in supporting either side in the Levant's latest piddling squabble.
And nothing in Lebanon, and no possible political outcome that might spring from British involvement there, is worth the life of a single British squaddie.

While I support Israel's right to fight it, I see nothing to be gained from anyone else joining them in it at this point.
