British bombs are best

So the famous British cluster bombs are responsible for another mass murder. This follows the mass murder by the Yanks against the Syrian army and another against civilians of recent days.



Of course the western media ensure that this news is either quietly forgotten if it is even mentioned at all, while 'Russian massacres', like the UN convoy attack, are given front billing, discussed at press conferences by the 'concerned' US admin and splashed across the western gutter press.

In all of this mass murder the people responsible for making the bombs in England and the arms manufacturers pay absolutely no price, nor does it seem are governments or law agencies interested in arresting them for their horrendous crimes.

I'm just wondering what people think should happen to combat the scourge of bomb making and weapons producing which bring already poverty stricken countries such added misery?

I was reading there the other day that the British have gone up in the weapons exporters rankings.

It's hard to imagine the real life heartache behind pictures such as the above, the people appear stoic and so we tend to think it's not that bad - but they only appear stoic because they are stronger than Western people and more used to hard times. Nobody deserves this.

The UK signed the Dublin Convention - they don't make or sell these munitions.

Why aren't all the anti war protesters in the UK camped outside the offices of factories that make these bombs? The irony of blowing up towns and villages and then having an issue with refugees trying to flee these death zones.

About 25 years ago I had opportunity to go inside a building in the UK, the company of which was a cluster munitions manufacturer. From the outside it looked like a leafy business park estate, almost rural setting, and fairly well hidden by trees etc. You woudn't know what you were looking at. Boy was the mood inside something different. Most of the staff seemed quite depressed, there was a glumness about the place and everyone talked in hushed tones.

Being younger at the time I didn't think about it much, it was a one-off visit, but looking back I think many of them were in a way ashamed of what they were involved in. Probably lured by decent wages, then locked in with mortgages etc, and trying to mentally avoid thinking about it too much. Not something i'd be too proud of if i'd worked there.

Seems like selective outrage...

British bombs aren't particularly bad.

The Russian (and French and US) weapons industry is huge too.

You either reject large-scale weapons manufacturing on principle... or you are part of the problem.

To my mind, weapons manufacturers are the dregs of humanity, whether they be Russian, British or from anywhere else on the face of the planet. Their entire lives are based around conspiracy to murder.

The Russian, French and British establishments happen to be repeat offenders. They are rogue states and have been inflicting their war-mongering poison on the world for centuries, but it is wrong wherever it originates.

No exclusions based on nationality or ideology or race or religion.

No excuses.

F*ck them all.

Thank God the Brits and the Yanks have smart bombs - not like those dumb barrel bombs. When the Brits and the Yanks bomb a hospital or a school or a wedding party, they know what they're doing and they do it with precision.

Not forgetting the same crowd wanting to Brexit meaning arms exports are now a vital industry post EU. Its a sector needed now to make Britain great again.

They certainly killed a lot less civilians than Brit and Yank bombs do.
You are 'pro-life' so you must by definition condemn all murders. Or is that restricted to a certain time period?

Once people are born its ok to kill them? You seem rather confused.

I believe in the death penalty and in war to defend one's nation. I do not believe in exterminating the future generations of our nation.

You believe in mass murder in an assortment of circumstances which you continually alter and wiggle around over.

Fact is, much of the mass murder you have advocated and celebrated occurred in no war.

You are an utter fool.

You are most pro-death poster on the site.
