Open Letter to Alan Reid

Postby EphemeralDeception » Thu Sep 25, 2014 2:36 pm

Dear Mr Reid,

As you are being recalled to Westminster to vote on who the UK is going to bomb next I would like you to explain how you will vote and the reasons for doing so, please?

As you were already ecstatic about Bombing Syria the last time the vote came up, and you voted YES, alas only to be outvoted, I guess you will calling for Yes this time too? I would expect that if you do vote Yes it is with a full international legal basis to do so.

Therefore, could you also explain what measures under international law authorizes the UK to Bomb Syria ( backed I am sure with full agreement of the Security Council )?

And finally please explain to natives of Argyll and Bute, as asked by former Ambassador,Craig Murray: "explain to me the precise mechanism by which our bombing Islamic countries helps prevent terrorist incidents in the UK."

Over to you Mr Reid.

Surely the bombing is precision and I.S.are the targets,not the whole country?

'Bombing is precison'.

Yes it is so precise they can even hit the wrong country by accident never mind the wrong target. I would recommend you read up on the subject rather than relying on State broadcasters for your disinformation. For example Nato accidentally bombed the chinese embassy in Belgrade http://congressionalresearch.com/RS20547/document.php

On May 7, 1999, during the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia (Operation Allied Force), five US JDAM guided bombs hit the People's Republic of China embassy in the Belgrade district of New Belgrade, killing three Chinese reporters and outraging the Chinese public and they had to pay millions in compensation. Now, if they can accidentally hit an Embassy that gives an idea of the accuracy and errors.

However as I said there are too many sheep that expect to be fed accurate information. You have to do it yourself.

I would imagine that weaponry technology has moved on quite a bit since 1999.What do you suggest as an alternative?

@Gizmo.

I have plenty I could give. However it is AR that is taking Argyll to war not me. What alternatives has he considered?
One of them could have been AR campaigning to not have the CIA training and arming IS in the 1st place with the UKs blessing, but no, AR was more interested in fiddling his expenses. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstop ... enses.html

EphemeralDeception,I fervently hope that you never have to endure someone you care about, kneeling in the desert with a shaven head and wearing an orange boilersuit! I think your carping about the lovcal MP's voting patterns would seem rather petty in those circumstancws!

Lochend, sorry but if we think that going into another Iraq war is going to stop beheadings - or stop terrorist attacks in the UK - then we are being extremely naive. There are other alternatives and one is not involving ourselves in other people's wars! There is nothing we can achieve and if we are told different then we are going to war on another bloody lie.

GG do you believe that once IS have achieved their goals by creating this new fundamentalist state they will not wish to extend their influence westward?The map of the areas they say should be under their control includes most of Spain? We have already endured one of the more prominent fundamentalists, during his televised rant at John Reid, insisting that we,the British, have no right of ownership of our country,it belongs to Allah! Even the countries surrounding Syria and Iraq are becoming terrified by the IS threat.Whilst they are willing to try to snuff out this threat before it becomes truly established,I believe it is in our long term interests to engage!
