The gloves should be taken off.

I’m referring to the war on terror that is being waged against Islamic terrorists. As far as I can see the Russians have the right idea. Bomb them to hell and back. No laser guided bombs, instead sticks of dumb bombs from on high.

Of course someone will tell me I’m justifying breaking the Geneva convention. However the Geneva convention is for the protection of prisoners and civilians.

“The Geneva Conventions extensively defined the basic rights of wartime prisoners (civilians and military personnel); established protections for the wounded; and established protections for the civilians in and around a war-zone.”

It’s not as if Isil has been following the convention, so personally we shouldn’t have to fight a lopsided battle.

Article 3 states that even where there is not a conflict of international character, the parties must as a minimum adhere to minimal protections described as: non-combatants, members of armed forces who have laid down their arms, and combatants who are hors de combat (out of the fight) due to wounds, detention, or any other cause shall in all circumstances be treated humanely, with the following prohibitions:

(a) violence to life and person, in particular murder of all kinds, mutilation, cruel treatment and torture;
(b) taking of hostages;
(c) outrages upon personal dignity, in particular humiliating and degrading treatment
(d) the passing of sentences and the carrying out of executions without previous judgment pronounced by a regularly constituted court, affording all the judicial guarantees which are recognized as indispensable by civilized peoples.


As you can see from the emboldened text they have broken all of the rules.

So here’s what I suggest we do.

Raqqa is purportedly a stronghold of Islamic state and should be cleansed. Therefore a warning should be given that if the population don’t leave within 48 hours then the consequences are theirs to shoulder.

Then I’d nuke the place.

Too extreme? Why should we fight with our hands behind our backs?

I might just drop a hint to a particularly rich gulf state that unless they stop funding terrorists, they might find that one of their Holy cities might become a sheet of glass as well.



  2. Have I missed something? ISIS don't seem to be sticking to the rules do they?

  3. From what I've heard on France24, the French are going to beat the hell out of Raqqa with assistance from the Russians. No matter what the Yanks say. Only one suspect from the Paris attacks is still on the run, but I think he's become a really, really bad insurance risk.

    1. The French seem only to have bombed places abandoned by the terrorists days earlier. Just as the Americans are pretending to fight the people they are really supplying. They just can't see convoys of Toyota trucks, or lines of oil tankers stretching over the horizon. Only the Russians are really bombing the terrorists.

  4. Why warn them?
    Just do it.

  5. I suggested nuking both Raqqa and Mosul. Obliterate ISIS and their collaborators AKA civilians.

    1. That's an option. The Charles De Gaulle currently deploying to the Med is part of France's Nuclear Force de Frappe. Wonder what the French Nuclear sub Le Terrible is doing right now?

      As my wife remarked last Saturday. "Don't piss off the French. It always ends in tears."

    2. Spare a few nukes for Mecca, Medina, Riyadh, Qatar, Ankara, Tel Aviv, Dimona etc.Stop messing around.

  6. "......Therefore a warning should be given that if the population don’t leave within 48 hours then the consequences are theirs to shoulder......."

    Presumably, the bad men will also leave. Innit?

    I love reading the impotent ramblings of ignorant and poorly educated Baby-Boomer Caucasoid males as they pontificate from their armchairs about what they would do vis-à-vis world events.

    1. So what do you suggest?

      As for poorly educated. I attended fee paying schools and spent eight years afterwards gaining a major qualification.

    2. What do I suggest?
      Bacterial vectors transmitting viruses specifically engineered to 'eliminate' folks sporting a predetermined set of genetic markers. Lots of collateral damage - children - but heh? You need to kill the idea, and nits grow up to be lice anyway.

  7. "To forgive the terrorists is up to God, but to send them to him is up to me."
    Reputedly said by Putin

  8. Sterculian Rhetoric: "Bacterial vectors transmitting viruses specifically engineered to 'eliminate' folks sporting a predetermined set of genetic markers. "

    That sounds like a very good idea, ... not. Given the history of Islamic imperialism owning pretty much half of Europe as they did, using genocide and rape as an instrument of war, many of the gene markers are well embedded in the European population. So your proposal is a pretty good way to wipe out much of Spain, Italy and France too.
