Ramanan — Jeremy Spoke In Class Today

In this brilliant speech, Corbyn talks about how the West’s foreign policy is responsible for terrorism....
Of course, none of this doesn’t mean that this is the only factor responsible for global terrorism. But via deceit, western governments and the media has prevented this main reason from being discussed.

Jeremy Spoke In Class Today

Osama asks two questions.

The first is why do we attack you. The answer is you attacked us first and it is a Muslim's obligation to come to the aid of the community.

The second is what do we want. This is based on Wahhabism, the official religious doctrine of Saudi Arabia, which it seeks to promote among Muslims.

The obvious response is to ask, first, whether it is is worth it to continue to aggress in Muslim lands and, secondly, whether the Western support of and alliance with Saudi Arabia is good policy.

Watch how the British neoliberals and media spin this into Corbyn being pro-IRA and other nonsense.

Good Heavens. UK political leader announces there's blowback from ill-conceived intervention in the Middle East. Well done Jeremy Corbyn. Just one problem though.

UK "far right" parties predicted blowback before the Iraq war even started!!! And I imagine the average street sweeper could see what was coming. Seems that in the UK as in the US you need to have a lowish IQ in order to get into power nowadays. Though if Mike Norman gets to the White House, he'll be an exception to that rule..:-)

Tory lead 5 points over Labour now. With the Tory manifesto so bad, and the Labour one so good, they have nothing to clobber Labour with so they and their media are going to push this IRA nonsense.

Nigel Farage seemed to be the only UK politician talking sense about Putin and Russia.
