Listening to President Biden’s speech last night, three things came to mind. Firstly, we have a very angry head of the free world.
Secondly the United States is now only prepared to ‘Jaw Jaw’ rather than ‘War War’ in defence of the rights of women and the LGBGT community facing medieval conditions in Afghanistan.
And thirdly, President Biden’s malfeasance regarding the evacuation from that country a few days ago was off the scale.
“No nation has ever done anything like it in history” was the President’s opening hyperbole relating to the evacuation of 120,000 people in 17 days with the loss of “20 wounded and 13 killed whilst facing the crush of crowds infiltrated by the Taliban.”
Could someone respectfully remind the President of the events of 27th May to 4th June 1940 when the United Kingdom evacuated more than a third of a million people from Dunkirk as instructed to do so by our Prime Minister Winston Churchill? You might want to add that this was at the cost of 3500 people killed and over 13,000 wounded during the evacuation which also saw 243 out of 861 ships sunk during the endeavour.
I believe that history will compare the two evacuations more ‘fairly’ than the President is want to do especially when consideration that the vast majority of equipment left behind at Dunkirk was made inoperable prior to leaving the French beaches.
And if the left leaning media don’t agree or fail to report the truth. Let it be known we shall fight them in the chat rooms, we shall fight on the Twitter feeds, we shall fight on the Facebook pages, we shall fight across all fake news spreading platforms; we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving of truth, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the new world, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.
And we’d quite like our American allies with us.
