Anton Goryunov reports from Nairobi: Sorry not to share the ‘grave concerns’ of Western politicians over that attack on the shopping mall in Nairobi by some thugs who call themselves al Shabaab and claim to be ‘Muslims’. Fits nicely into the pattern that the liberals in the West are trying to invent, portraying every conflict in Africa and the Middle East as ‘sectarian’ and presenting killers and criminals as ‘religious fanatics’. (By that standard, the liberal democracies of the West should be viewed as pagan regimes run by tribal minorities.)
The thing is that the attack in Nairobi was carried out by a group of criminals, yes, criminals, who have nothing to do with religion at all. And what’s more, they probably got their arms either from Libya, which was ‘liberated’ by the West and turned into a lawless country run by gangsters, or from Syria, where the West and its allies are arming all sorts of scumbags who have infiltrated the rebels. So in a way, Western ‘pagans’ are responsible for what has happened in Nairobi.
The explanation for this attack is that members of al Shabaaba, who operate in Somalia, object to the Kenyan troops taking part in the joint African peacekeeping force which is battling gangs of killers there. That’s why several dozen of these cutthroats got into Kenya and attacked a shopping mall, killing innocent people at random, supposedly in the name of Islam and politics. Even though these are gangsters who would murder anyone for kicks or out of boredom, who have never even seen the Koran, let alone open it.
But lets cast our sights on Britain. How about that PM David Cameron, eh? Cutting short his meeting with the Queen in Balmoral and rushing back to London, to chair the meeting of the Cobra committee to discuss the events in Kenya. Cobra had been set up by Tony Blair when terrorists blew up lots of people on the London Underground and on a bus, as revenge for Britain getting involved in the war in Iraq that was started on false pretences. Blair was instrumental in launching that war but pretended that it made perfect sense, the weasel.
Dave treats these Cobra meetings held in the basement of 10 Downing Street very seriously. Everyone taking part in them hum the theme from Mission Impossible, keeping stern faces and talking bollocks in hushed voices, to add tension and suspense to the whole thing. Former public school boys getting together to play with matches, that how it comes across.
Mind you, all those upheavals in faraway lands do wonders for Dave and the gang, who have a chance to ignore the mess at home and pretend to be world statesmen dealing with an international crisis. To hell with the economy, the real one I mean, that is going down the toilet, and to hell with millions struggling to survive. It’s that time again when it’s possible to talk about the really serious things, like the ‘sectarian strife’ in Africa and ‘religious fanatics’ causing havoc. Now this would have been hilarious if it wasn’t so tragic.
And another thing: now that Obama and the gang have been outwitted by the Russians and the Chinese and had to drop their plans of attacking Syria, they might as well target Somalia, now that the ‘Islamist militants, as they call them, have entered Kenya. (The mess in Somalia, if you recall, was made worse by America in the 1990s.) So why not have a go at Somalia and cover up the financial crash that is coming, people?
