STENCH OF HYPOCRISY
Do you smell anything unpleasant? It's probably the nauseating stench
emanating from liberal leftists and most of the ultra-leftist political sects on
the subject of Bosnia. During the Gulf War and the Falklands conflict most of
these same folk denounced 'imperialistic warmongering' and regarded the armed
forces of Great Britain and the other western states as some form of despicable
lowlife. Foreign intervention in other people's disputes was regarded as
something to be avoided.
This latter point sounds fair enough. Ulster Nation opposed the
deployment of Royal Irish Regiment soldiers in the Gulf War on the grounds that
Ulster has no dispute with the Iraqi government or its people. We believe that
our troops ought to be only deployed to protect our own Motherland or its
strategic interests. They ought not to be international policemen for the US-led
'New World Order!'
Today some of these same apparent `pacifists' are among the most vociferous in
calling for action in the Bosnian civil war. The boys in the black hats are the
Bosnian Serbs. Their deeds are so foul that 'the world' must intervene on the
side of their enemies, Croatia and the 'multicultural' Muslim-led Sarajevo
regime. The liberal-left want airstrikes, bombings and the total crushing of the
Bosnian Serbs by NATO forces. Leftists fell over themselves to outdo the
triumphalist crowing of the jingoistic Tory press as they applauded the American
bombardment of Pale, the Bosnian Serb capital. Who could have imagined it a few
short years ago?
The hypocrites! During the last great leftist cause-celebré of this
century - the Spanish Civil War - the left sent thousands of volunteers to fight
on the republican side. Where is the modern equivalent of the Quinta Brigada?
Nowhere) Today's wimpish Reds don't have the guts to get stuck in themselves to
help. What a sorry spectacle) If they are not prepared to emulate their
International Brigade predecessors of a generation ago they should keep quiet.
Their reliance on the armed forces that they usually affect to despise speaks
volumes. We know now that they are not truly pacifists but cowardly hypocrites.
