Whilst the Prime Minister David Cameron has secured a resounding success in persuading Arab governments to support intervention in Libya, the anti-war coalition has – unsurprisingly – been busy voicing its support for murderous dictatorship.
A large gang of them congregated outside Downing Street in Whitehall last Thursday evening and handed out spurious and demagogic leaflets whilst waffling on about western imperialism. Meanwhile, the people of Bhengazi were fighting tooth and nail to stave off blood-thirsty state terrorists.
You see, the anti-war coalition can’t help themselves. They lied constantly during the intervention in Iraq. They told us British and American soldiers were running for the Jordanian border with barrels of oil shoved up their sweatshirts when it turned out Iraq’s first oil deal was with China. They told us there were no terrorists in Iraq when we now know Al Zarqawi was in Iraq to murder the leadership of the Kurdish Union. We know PLO terrorists who murdered Leon Kleinhoffer, the wheel-chair bound American Jew, were travelling on Iraqi diplomatic passports. We know Ramzay Yusuf, the man who mixed the chemicals for the 1993 World Trade Center Bombings, was given diplomatic immunity by the Iraqi Baath Party. They have lied constantly about the civilian death toll in Iraq. Most deaths were caused by Sunni insurgency groups and Al-Qaeda. Not British or Americans soldiers.
The coalition is a cross-section of fruitcakes, loonies and closet masochists, mostly. Among the ranks are anti-Jewish racists, Hamas sympathisers, Stalinists, Leninists and Anarchist-class warriors. Many of them harbour sick fantasies relating to the death of Mrs Thatcher and a large number have criminal convictions for carrying out violent acts during supposed demonstrations.
