Taxpayers are facing a bill of almost £150 million to defend British soldiers who are being sued by enemy fighters for breaching their “human rights”. More than 2,000 separate compensation claims and judicial review cases have been prepared by lawyers in the aftermath of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Suspected Taliban bomb-makers and insurgents captured by British troops on the battlefield are among those who have begun legal action against the government.Nope. No more Britain. Any "nation" that would think for even a picosecond about ALLOWING this to happen is no longer a nation. What is the response of utterly demasculated totally fagged "Britain"?
By the end of the year, a major strategic security review will determine the future shape and size of the Armed Forces as the government plans how to combat new threats from terrorists, Russian aggression and “rogue” states.But this isn't the real problem. The real problem happened BEFORE all of this unimaginable shit. If we hadn't been CREATING terrorists and INVADING Russian territory and RIPPING Arab states into shreds, we wouldn't have to worry about "terrorists" and Russian DEFENSE and "rogue" states. All of this shit was purely our own creation. UK obeyed US, US obeyed Our Most Noble And Radiant Prophet Binyamin Netanyahu. If we had been MINDING OUR OWN FUCKING BUSINESS since 1989, there would be some actual terrorists and some actual rogue states because those things are always present, but the magnitude and direction of their vectors would be drastically different. The small number of terrorists would be making trouble inside their own countries, and the few rogue states would be making trouble for their own people. And of course Russia would also be minding its own business because Russia ALWAYS minds its own business UNTIL it's attacked by some psychopathic genocidal satanic hypermonster like Napoleon or Kaiser or Hitler or Bush or Obama or Cameron.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
