When the SNP sent the ‘feeble 56’ to Westminster, I knew it would only be a matter of time before they opened their mouths and be shown up as a laughing stock in the full glare of the House of Commons.
Misguided Scots sent SNP ‘clowns’ to

The Syrian crisis is filling the headlines at present as
Europe experiences the biggest movement of people since
the Second World War. As people seek solutions, the SNP has become involved
themselves in doing tat, providing no insights and no realistic plans to cope
beyond the challenges presented to aid workers.
Nicola Sturgeon has offered to take a Syrian ‘refugee’ into her own home, cheap tawdry political point scoring; one wonders how long that would last before the ‘refugee’ ‘leaves’. I find it amusing how Sturgeon keeps ‘upping the ante’ to sell the image that she is a decent human being, one wonders who she is trying to prove that to?

support kind of withered and died out pretty quickly.
Onto the scene came
they wanted to create an Islamic State, not by democratic means but by the old
time served method of murder. Some British Muslims decide that they wanted to
join this group who don’t believe in law and order, or government or even due
process. They subscribed to known of the recognised cornerstones of a democracy.
One of the famous murderers of
is someone dubbed Jihad John; he likes to torture people and cut their heads
while it is being filmed. The videos of his murders are posted and he appears
to gloat and enjoy what he has done. Apparently the security services now know
who this individual is and where he is from. Just as Jihad John decided to be a
recreational killer, several other British Muslims have followed in his
footsteps such as Ruhul Amin, previously known as Abdul Raqib Amin. Amin was
born in Bangladesh but had
lived in Britain.
Another known terrorist is Cardiff-born Reyaad Khan, he made videos trying to
get other British Muslims to follow his lead and engage in terrorism.
Prime Minister David Cameron previously sought support in the House of Commons for military action in
Syria, the Commons spoke and they
came firmly to the decision not at this time. When the vote was going through
and it came out as No. I thought and still do, that the right decision had been
made by MPs. I also came to the conclusion that the West and that does mean the
US and UK needed to back the Syrian
Government. That was a tough ask as they had been mad keen on regime change and

had misjudged the situation rather badly and I think they know it.
So, should there be at this point in time military action in
Syria by the US and UK?
That is problem running through the mind of David Cameron at present, he needs to sell that to the House of Commons, my gut feeling is yes, but only if it is done with the cooperation of the Syrian Government and not done in civilian residential areas. ISIS is a threat to the West and to innocent people in
no one is safe from these people as their videos show.
Drone strikes are a highly controversial form of warfare, the technology isn’t what most people can get their head round, as a form of warfare it has its uses. It allows the military to do different things such as airstrikes or collect intelligence without placing the lives of pilots at risk. The drone programme isn’t new; the technology is widely used not just in the West but by military forces the world over. Youtube is a good resource to look at ‘arms fairs’ held in places like
Jordan. At these fairs you can get
the latest in military hardware and software, arms fairs are usually restricted
to invitation only but if you had the chance, definitely worth spending a
couple of days going round the stands.
I have no problem with the decision made to launch a drone strike that killed these individuals because the way I look at it is this, how many innocent Syrian lives and others have been saved by this action?
It is extraordinary that the SNP Defence spokesman Brendan O’Hara should stand up and urge David Cameron not to use the situation as a “smokescreen”. Could you imagine an independent
Scotland’s military being led by
people like Brendan O’Hara?
This man is a fool, dangerous, stupid and naïve, he is the type of person who gets people killed because he doesn’t understand defence or how to defend a country or what obligations we have to make the World a safe place.
Aberdeen North SNP MP Kirsty Blackman wrongly decided to jump on the SNP bandwagon by demanding answers.
“David Cameron’s announcement leaves a large number of questions over the way in which the UK Government has acted. It is important that we get those answers and that parliament receives as full an explanation as possible of what took place.”
“The case for bombing in
Syria has simply not been made –
and any involvement of British service personnel in bombing without the
approval of parliament clearly flouts the democratic decision taken by the
House of Commons.”
Some times in warfare, there is a pressing need, in the case of these terrorists, the need couldn’t wait for House of Commons approval; it was the right decision by military personnel.
This episode clearly shows that the SNP doesn’t back British Forces, many of whom are Scots. It also shows what utter trash has been elected by the people of
in the shape of their MPs, when they open their mouths; they just let the wider
public know what many in the political bubble know already. The SNP cult is
full of shallow simple minded people who have no idea how to run a country or
even defend it properly.
And less we forget, convicted out of their mouths, however it is highly unlikely there will be a need to call in a drone strike for their stupidity.
David Cameron is right to say, his first duty is to protect the safety of the British people. The home grown British terrorists were actively involved in recruiting IS sympathisers to orchestrate attacks against the West, to target high-profile public commemorations in the
Maybe someone should hang a sign outside the door of each SNP MP at
‘Think before you open your mouth and say something stupid’.
I think it is time now to support military intervention in
Syria to assist
the current government maintain their stability of their country. I would
expect reasonable care to be taken to protect innocent civilians and drone
strikes should not be used in urban areas such as towns and cities of Syria.
People want to live a stable country without fear of terrorism and if using drones to take out terrorists is needed then so be it.
