RESOLVED “that this House will in no circumstances fight for its King and Country”
Of course, the bitter results of that ignorance followed as we know them.
In 1934 the Liberal MP Robert Bernays described how a Nazi youth leader had asked him about the debate:
There was an ugly gleam in his eye when he said ‘The fact is that you English are soft’.
Compare this now with Lord Mottistone who in 1944 claimed, in the Lords:
no one who was in Malta or in the Middle East will deny… that the young men at Oxford who passed that resolution very nearly decreed the downfall of Britain and her Empire.It is often said TODAY that perception IS reality. It is not what things are, but what we MAKE OF THEM
Was Churchill some dark character to accurately predict what followed?
Were the ‘Troublesome Young Men“ hopeless visionaries filled with despair?
Others are watching the democratic party of FDR and Harry Truman, of Jack Kennedy.
Others who are laughing at the twisted, DESPERATE pretzel logic of the that party’s claim Trump committed treason out of his sarcastic ridicule of Hillary and her servers.
Other nations and planners OBSERVE, and they recognize the objective reality at that chant, which occurred when Panetta disturbed the ‘wah’ of the convention by having the foolishness to mention the octogenarian priest beheaded during mass the DAY BEFORE (referencing ALL that has preceded it by doing so..silly warmongering man).
In 2001 more Americans were killed by a foreign force than died at Pear Harbor. Our reaction and mission creep diluted the response we had, and now, with atrocities being committed nearly every day the democratic party chants “NO MORE WAR”
In this world there is only one way to end war.
I knew what I was doing when I stopped the war that would have killed a half a million youngsters on both sides if those bombs had not been dropped. I have no regrets and, under the same circumstances, I would do it again – and this letter is not confidential.
Harry S Truman (liberal, big spending, New Dealer)I don’t MAKE UP these rules because I like them.
I observe them to be harsh reality, and know the other choices are FAR WORSE.
As is Hillary Clinton.
