At the height of its power the British Empire controlled over 13 million square miles of land, and ruled over 458 million people,
roughly 20% of the world’s population. They had colonies on every habitable continent of the world, wielded a navy unmatched in strength and controlled or influenced the foreign policy of nearly every country on the planet.
Today, England has become a timid lapdog meekly following the orders of Israel, a country of of only 8,000 square miles and less than 8 million people. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
The chain of command has been clearly laid out in this article from the Guardian titled “UK defence chiefs prepare for conflict with Iran over nuclear programme“, more tellingly subtitled “Ministry of Defence reluctantly planning for being drawn into a US-Israeli conflict with Iran over Tehran’s possible nuclear arms.” The orders start from Israel, pass through the US, and ultimately land in London.
The highest offices of foreign policy are in a state of “anxiety” over whether or not Israel will attack Iran:
The risk assessment by the Foreign Office and MI6 reflects anxiety in Whitehall about the prospect of an attack from Israel, which has longstanding fears over Tehran’s nuclear weapons ambitions.
England is outright afraid of what Israel might do, and why is that? Why wouldn’t England just stay on the side lines and let the two quarreling countries duke it out among themselves? The answer is because England takes it’s orders directly from the United States, and has no self determination of its own:
Although senior officers and defence officials admit privately they have “no appetite” for involvement in any campaign, and believe it can be avoided, they are aware of the political realities. The UK and the US have stated explicitly that they do not want Iran to have a nuclear bomb. “If America wants British help, it is difficult to imagine David Cameron saying ‘no’,” said one source.
So the English citizens who are in charge of English policy and supposedly tasked with protecting English interests are strongly opposed to involvement in a military campaign against Iran, but unfortunately the choice is not theirs! The control over the English military has been handed to the Americans, who David Cameron meekly obeys without question.
And the American President takes his orders directly from Israel, or more aptly from AIPAC as exposed by this choice bit:
“The Americans might hang out the Israelis to dry after the election, but not before,” said a senior Whitehall source. “Obama would have to support Israel if there was an attack before November.”
The American President buy cialis online is forced to support Israel no matter what in an election year, the only logical explanation is that without Israeli support the President will not be re-elected. Only after securing a second term without any chance to run again would the American President be brave enough to disagree with his Israeli masters.
What a sad state of affairs when the leaders of two powerful nations like the United States and the United Kingdom quake in fear over the orders of their masters in a tiny country in the Middle East. What a sorry day for national sovereignty when the most powerful government officials and politicians, whose sole duty it is to protect and serve the citizens of their own country, cower in apprehension at their next set of marching orders, passed down from a foreign power.
The Guardian has spoken to a number of Foreign Office and military officials in recent months, and all of them have expressed dread at the thought of a conflict with Iran.
One spoke of fear every time Obama and Cameron are left to discuss the issue and what may have been agreed. “We have our hearts in our mouth,” said the source.
Thus ends the British Empire, timidly curled up on a couch in Tel Aviv, pissing itself with every knock at the door.
