DUH that was my whole point. Just because you read a book dosent mean you can kick ass. Get it?

Those that do & can kick ass & don't read books end up labelled as psychopaths by those who can't kick ass yet read books!

Looking good for 2015, but this highlights just why people enter politics...

Ain't that a shame :-)

"confidence and supply is a parliamentary land flowing with milk and honey, where all of the angst of full-blown coalition is banished, but, somehow, all the advantages remain.

Next time, with (more than likely) fewer Lib Dems, (probably) more SNP MPs and (maybe) a significant UKIP presence and (perhaps) a couple of Greens there could be a range of possible governing combinations, but more than two parties would probably be required.

Another problem is that if the Lib Dems are reduced to 30 or so MPs, or maybe fewer, they don't really have the numbers to sustain a full-on coalition."

Keeping Cleggie as leader & that's a definite!

No, that'll be a lot worse as they'll spend too much time talking & not enough time acting!

The warm up for the World Cup will be interesting with both Australia & India.

& what better approach than to give them what they want - A territory of their own without any interference from the West. However, like anything else in life, there is a price to pay!

That price is that Islam will no longer be tolerated in the West. Do what you want - We won't interfere, but Allah help you should you try your tricks again in the West, as this time around as we did not interfere with you, we will commit until you cower.

BUT, that's not civil? Try to educate them instead. Who do you think is controlling them from mid to high levels of command? Some ignorant goat herder with an AK47 as you put it?

It is believed that they were stabbed but police not confirming anything until the coroner's report is made available.

There's going to be another 3 episodes? Just finished part 3. It's what I hate about most serials - TBC.

The annoying thing with most North American series is that sometimes TBC never arrives on screen.

Oh, and another thing I found weird, the credits for part 3 stated episodes 105 & 106.

We must use the same tactic's as them and even go a bit beyond that to make it very clear this is not going to be tolerated and we are not scared of them until we do that we are going to lose and it will spread . Simple fact so far all the tactics have not worked because we are not committed enough to do the job properly and they know this so we have lost the war before it even started .

Never going to happen because the West is too civilised & also too scared of the human rights brigade.

Throughout the West, there are more than enough of them to make up an Army Corps. Wouldn't it be much better to scoop them all up, give them weapons & send them into the combat zones?

I'll lay odds that those that manage to return unscathed will no longer be part of any Human Rights Brigade!

As for my experience, we are talking long term strategic policy here. Non of you has any actual experience with that (unless one of you was President of a nuclear power or some Commander in Chief of some countries armed forces), but it is exactly what I've been studying. Theoretical knowledge beats your complete lack of knowledge, be it practical or theoretical.


That's why the planet is in a world of crap! Too many with their heads stuck in books & insulting to others when they attain a position in power. In other words, they've learnt nothing but how to put their views on what they've learnt in effect...

...& hate being proven wrong.

The Art of War is not an art you understand or are talented in.

Coming from a bookworm with no experience himself to rely on is insulting to say the least.

If someone points a gun at you & fires 8 rounds, would that be classed as attempted murder (or if you're killed - Murder)?

London shoot-out footage released

..."both in north London, were found not guilty of attempted murder but guilty of possessing a firearm and ammunition with intent to endanger life."

Pakistan's watershed?

After reading that report, I wonder what our home grown terrorists or sympathisers think of this?

Whenever a debate gets topical & action is required, how many have heard this old quote?

"Talk is cheap!"

Well, talk is not that cheap anymore...

You a good talker? Then join the coalition!

...the taxpayers don't mind!
