The supposed ‘unity’ of the Yes Campaign has suffered another serious blow as Alex Salmond is facing opposition within the SNP from his Sein Fein lite republican group and other assorted malcontents.
Apparently in his quest for independence, Salmond is now moving to the George Laird view, that Scotland should keep Nuclear weapons on its soil.
The idea is relatively simple, nuclear weapons on Scottish soil guarantees sovereignty.
It isn’t rocket science.
As part of his disastrous US trip which has shown the continual meltdown of independence under his and Scotland’s unpopular Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon’s leadership, he is now promising the US anything to get them onboard.
Sadly, the Americans having looked closely at the situation have probably come to the same conclusion as me and the rest of Scotland.
Alex Salmond and Nicola Sturgeon can’t be trusted, their word isn’t worth shit.
The EU debacle cast that in stone.
With Salmond now telling the United States that their bases could remain on Scottish soil after independence, it shows he is trying to reclaim ground after botching going pro Nuclear at the SNP Conference.
An independent Scotland would have to be part of NATO, although some in the SNP are opposed, this was an SNP policy borne out of grudge, grievance and malcontent as the SNP hitched their wagon to any cause to get support.
The idea was stupid then and it’s stupid now!
SNP MSP John Wilson who screamed like a little girl when the SNP U turn happened has said Scotland would be at risk of being dragged into conflicts at the “behest” of the Americans if bases were allowed.
Mr. Wilson is a stupid little man, his partner left the SNP and it was hinted that he would follow the two other MSPs who became independent.
At the time I said he wouldn’t do so, Wilson is all mouth and no balls.
Anyway Wilson queries what the military bases would be used for?
Presumably he hasn’t a military background to draw on, its logistics numbnuts!
You know ……. fucking storage of military personnel and material!
Alex Salmond as well as selling Scotland down the river, is also selling out his own party members, they don’t understand that they aren’t part of the clique; they are just there to do the work so Salmond and Co can reap the rewards.
What Salmond didn’t spell out at the SNP U turn was the concept that the SNP isn’t the CND party.
The conversion by Salmond to NATO is a sham in my opinion, he is saying anything as he desperate tries to build support, but support isn’t coming.
It’s him, Sturgeon, the SNP, and their hangers on sitting on an exposed grassy knoll.
And they are all going to get their arse handed to them on the 18th September 2014.
Wilson also said Scotland could be forced to host nuclear weapons and that nuclear weapons could be transported to and from any American bases sited in Scotland.
A small price to pay for guaranteed sovereignty.
“They could be used as launch bases for attacks on Syria and other countries that the USA considers to be hotspots. I’d be concerned that the bases could end up like a Scottish Greenham Common [the RAF base in Berkshire that was home to US cruise missiles in the 1980s]. The bases could also still potentially be used to host nuclear weapons, which would fly in the face of the SNP’s attempt to rid Scotland of nuclear weapons. The difficulty with Nato membership is that Nato forces can be pulled into conflicts at the behest of the US government, similar to the situation to Iraq.”
You have to read closely and marvel at the stupidity and how his body manages to generate enough electricity to power his limbs to move.
There is no way that the US would ever launch a Nuclear weapon from a Scottish base, to attack a country such as Syria.
John Wilson should keep his deep ignorance of military and foreign politics matters underwraps, remember I said that there was a genuine lack of talent in the SNP, John Wilson aptly proves my point.
To be concise, he is a dumb fuck!
As Salmond struggles to try and kick start the indy campaign, he hasn’t the brains to realise that campaign is now over, no one is backing him either at home or on foreign shores.
At present Alex Salmond is running down the clock to the end of his political career, 523 days to the political death of Alex Salmond at the ballot box.
I am not surprised that within the SNP that the Sein Fein lite republican group and the malcontents still have their noses out of joint over NATO, in the past we have seen traitors in Britain like Burgess, Philby, Maclean and Blunt willing to sell out our country to the Russians.
In this case, the Russians don’t need to recruit in the SNP; the Sein Fein lite republican group et al is doing a marvelous job and all without pay.
