Iran won!

John Bolton, the former American Ambassador to the UN has said that 'Iran won' in the recent standoff between Iran and Britain!

I fear he is right!

"If the outcome of the stand-off with Iran was a success for British diplomacy, "one hesitates to ask what would constitute failure," Bolton wrote in the business daily. "

I have to agree with him here, the embarrassing situation into which Britain has been launched has been a disaster from beginning to end!

First we have a navy and armed personnel who do not have the equipment to properly protect themselves, we have a government that regularly dumps upon the military, either using them as an arm of the left wing policies of this state, or alternatively as a scape goat for 'racism' 'sexism' and the other currently unacceptable 'isms' around today!

This government also believes that they can constantly cut the armed forces budgets, whilst committing them to more and more fields of war! How long this can continue is unclear, the effect on morale is already apparent!

The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are also deeply unpopular at home, making the fighting of these wars even harder, in this the government is wholly to blame! First they exaggerate the threat posed by Iraq (Something that makes it almost impossible to fight future wars!), then they make blunder after blunder in the administration of Iraq, all the time refusing to fight the leftist defeatism rife in the press, leaving the left to make the case that Iraq was a disaster, and this war of propaganda was lost long ago!

So, in some ways it is understandable why these troops surrendered so readily, why bother risking one's life so recklessly, why risk one's life for a cause no one at home believes in? Why bother fighting when one's political masters treat one with such obvious disdain?

But this is not the disaster of which I write! That came after this litany of incompetence!

Surrender can be acceptable in some circumstances, there are times when being brave is to be wise! The embarrassment was not the surrender, but the manner of their confinement!

The way in which the British captives behaved was a disgrace, mainly to themselves! It is one thing for the government to dump on you or for the press to smear your name or for the PC brigade to attack you for all you do and do not do, that is one thing! No matter how much shit is thrown at you, you still have your honour! This is what those captives gave away whilst in Iran, they gave away their honour!

This is the thing which I believe upsets people, this is what will not be forgotten quickly by the world!

Weakness was shown in Iran, not physical weakness, but moral weakness, these men and woman had no honour, and if they did, they have it no more! By extension neither does Britain!

CONTRADICTIONS OF THE KORAN



The text of the Koran is so contradictory, rough and bad-written, any reader can identify countless abundant, internal contradictions in the sacred book of the illiterate and ignorant barbarians. The site The Religion of Peace examined each one of those incongruous discrepancies. The contradictions are more than one hundred. That for stayed only in the internal contradictions, where certain stretches affirm exactly the opposite of others .


A amateur, pig work, that alone reinforce the suspicions about its real authorship. Everything indicates Mohammed ordered several persons to write the book verses, but as the organizer did not know to read, the different approaches stayed uncompatible like a literary Frankenstein. Doubtless, it is the already written most monstrous book. In the form and in the content:



1. Can Allah be seen and did Muhammad see his Lord? Yes [Suras 53:1-18, 81:15-29], No [6:102-103, 42:51].

2. What was man created from? A blood clot [96:1-2], water [21:30, 24:45, 25:54], "sounding" (i.e. burned) clay [15:26], dust [3:59, 30:20, 35:11], nothing [19:67] ( and this is then denied in 52:35) earth [11:61], a drop of thickened fluid [16:4, 75:37]

3. How many angels were talking to Mary? When the Qur'an speaks about the announciation of the birth of Jesus to the virgin Mary, Sura 3:42,45 speaks about (several) angels while it is only one in Sura 19:17-21.

4. How many days did Allah need to destroy the people of Aad? One day [54:19] or several days [41:16; 69:6,7]

5. Heavens or Earth? Which was created first? First earth and then heaven [2:29], heaven and after that earth [79:27-30].

6. To Intercede or Not To Intercede? - That is the Question! The Qur'an makes contradictory statements whether on the Day of Judgment intercession will be possible. No: [2:122-123, 254; 6:51; 82:18-19; etc.]. Yes: [20:109; 34:23; 43:86; 53:26; etc.]. Each position can be further supported by a hadith.

7. Where is Allah and his throne? Allah is nearer than the jugular vein [50:16], but he is also on the throne [57:4] which is upon the water [11:7], and at the same time so far away, that it takes between 1,000 and 50,000 years to reach him [32:5, 70:4].


8. The origin of calamity? Is the evil in our life from Satan [38:41], Ourselves [4:79], or Allah [4:78]?

9. Does Allah command to do evil? No [7:28, 16:90]. Yes [17:16, ]. Two examples are also given, where Allah clearly commanded or permitted indecent actions [2:229-230, 2:187].

10. Do not say, "Three"!? It is impossible to recite Sura 4:171 without transgressing the command contained in it.

The infinite loop problem Sura 26:192,195,196: "It (the Qur'an) is indeed a revelation from the Lord of the Worlds, ... in clear Arabic speech and indeed IT (the Qur'an) is in the writings of the earlier (prophets)." Now, the 'earlier writings' are the Torah and the Injil for example, written in Hebrew and Greek. HOW can an ARABIC Qur'an be contained in books of other languages? Furthermore, it would have to contain this very passage of the Qur'an since the Qur'an is properly contained in them. Hence these earlier writings have to be contained in yet other earlier writings and we are in an infinite loop, which is absurd.

The US, Israel and Britain should all get together and each of them drop a few neutron bombs on Iran. Neutron bombs do not damage buildings but completely wipe out living beings. No soldiers will be needed- only a few bombs and lots of propaganda. Drop flyers on Iranian cities detailing exactly which ones will be destroyed, how they will be... and let the people lose faith in their governement and in their religion.

We in the UK are replacing Trident, so we should not waste the old missles.

Nuke Iran and let the UK taxpayers get their moneys worth
