Why one “peace activist” is a complete tit



Remember Norman Kember?
The British “peace activist” taken hostage in Iraq last year, by the Swords of Righteousness Brigade and freed in March in a multinational military operation involving the SAS. He wasn’t excessively grateful about being rescued by the “violent SAS”as you may recall. Scotland Yard has now told Mr Kember that those who kidnapped him are now in custody. Channel 4 News reported last night that Iraqi police had made arrests about a month ago over the kidnapping and they were hoping to take them to trial next year.
Scotland Yard approached Mr Kember to give evidence at their trial. But Kember said he would have a moral dilemma testifying against his kidnappers because of his strong opposition to the death sentence.
I am, as even the most casual of visitors to this blog will know, firmly and unequivovally opposed to the whole Iraq nightmare- the circumstances which led up to the invasion and its aftermath. As is Norman Kember. But I differ with him on the critical issue of administering justice to terrorists. In my considered view, forgiveness grows from the barrel of an M-16 as far as homicidal Islamists are concerned. And if the shoe were on the other foot, forgiveness would hardly enter into it. Kember is deluded- as deluded as our own Dear Leader.

The SAS should have left him where he was.

Did he have to pay for the SAS action to rescue him, return flight etc. or was it the duty of all Britons to do so via taxes?

He didn't pay a penny.He went to Iraq of his own accord, against the advice of the UK govt. and went walkabout in one of the most dangerous districts of Istanbul. He should have been obliged to pay for the costs of his rescue.

Kasimpasa???? Gaziosmanpasa???

Perhaps you mean Baghdad

Oh, fuck. Freudian slip. Kasimpasa, the South Central LA of Istanbul, is where our illustrious, PM, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, grew up. But I'll be restrained in how I refer to him. He has a tendency to sue. Gaziosmanpasa is pretty quiet these days. Its been a while since they have had a full riot.

The reason mnbgqhj why the Oakley Frogskins can block the UV ray is that the lenses are coated with a layer of special film. Such Oakley Frogskin can block and absorb the UV ray as well as some visible light Cheap Oakley Sunglasses at the same time, which will reduce the transmittance of the lens. Therefore, the superior-quality Oakley Jawbone have strong resistance to the UV ray. Moreover, the coating on the lens is relatively hard and not easy to be abraded. As for how to determine whether a pair of cheap wholesale Oakley Jawbones is with UV protection function.
