On one side of the coin Iran has a dangerous government and a dictatorship that has overshot their power. The Iranian leaders also threaten Israel and deny the holocaust which is ridiculous.
There is no doubt that Iran is trying to become a nuclear power. The West have stated so but Iran continues to deny this. It is up to the public to decide who is speaking the truth.
The USA is adamant that Iran is up to no good and so the US administration is trying various means to interfere with Iran.
Once before the USA used computer viruses to counteract the programming of a Nuclear weapon. Now, again, it was decided to use a new virus, Flame, and this bug it was claimed is 40 time more disruptive.
However, how about trying to look at this objectively. The USA, China, Russia, India and a few others are all building nuclear weapons. The USA did not intervene with those countries nuclear developments, did it?. China and Russia are not exactly democratic countries, are they?. Therefore, why is there a reason to interfere with Iran?
Iran is no doubt a powerful and dangerous country but so are many others. At the same time the USA is trying to convince us that they are only using their nuclear weapons to maintain World peace. Where are the guarantees from the USA or any of the other countries that built nuclear weapons?
If any of these countries were really threatened and it is the last resort, they will use what they have at their disposal, including nuclear weapons. Let’s be honest. Therefore, how does the USA have the right to police the world?
Even Israel has nuclear weapons. Israel is always pointing out the holocaust, and rightly so, but therefore Israel, after what they been through, should be the most peace loving country in the World. Yet, the moment they got their promised land they started fighting and took more land away from their neighbours. The people who had occupied that land for many years.That is wrong. Israel is also one of the top producers of weapons and they have nuclear weapons.
The USA does not interfere there.
On the whole,IMHO, if you want to stop the world from building nuclear weapons it has to be all the countries or not at all. Unilateral disarmament. What the USA is doing now only will only cause more hatred toward the West. Iran is not like other Middle Eastern countries. It will not just sit back and take it.
There is a distinct possibility that Iran might stand up and confront not only the USA but also the West, which are always too close for one confrontation without the other.
Ever since Bush started the war on Iraq and Afghanistan he created more hatred and terrorism. Now that the USA is attacking Iran, virtually, it might just be the spark which ignites the lot. Hopefully, it will not come to that because if it does, it will be us the innocent, ordinary people who want nothing but peace, who will suffer.
To be quite honest one gets fed-up of reading, hearing and especially writing about these scandals in the UK . They are constant these days and far too many. Whilst we all accept that no Political Party is perfect, the current coalition is really something beyond belief.
However, if we keep quiet it will only get worse, if that is possible. We have a duty to write about it and point out yet another failure of the Coalition.
The top bosses at the UK Border Agency, who have a long list of fiascos behind them, have been given a bonus. All in all they received £3.25million. For a start why do these bonuses exist in the first place? Everybody receives a salary for the work they do and the work should be carried out to their best abilities, as that is what they get paid for. Why are there these bonuses being paid all the time? These staff do not do anything out of the ordinary, do they? They just do their job and they get paid for it.
Bonuses should be stopped altogether especially as the country is in debt. David Cameron is always talking about austerity. Isn’t this where David Cameron should step in? Bonuses are not justified and take a lot of extra money out of the economy.
Apparently 16 bosses were paid four figure bonus payments. Please note that once again it was bosses and not workers.
The Home Affairs Committee chairman Keith Vaz said: “They have been handed out against a backdrop of border control failures and must stop.” MPs already demanded bonus payments stopped last year but it proves that nothing has been done.
The Home Office’s top civil servant, permanent secretary Dame Helen Ghosh, insisted that the scale and size of bonuses had been reduced, “substantially” over the last four years as a result of “restraint”. Whatever did they receive before, one wonders?
Mr Vaz, a former Labour Minister, complained: “In January 2011, we recommended that no bonuses should be paid to Senior Staff. Despite that the secretary revealed that some staff has been rewarded with bonuses up to £7,000.
“The payment of bonuses in the midst of failures such as relaxing border controls, an inability to clear the backlog and the reluctance to tackle bogus colleges through unannounced inspections must cease.”
Wow, the very last point is a shocking revelation.
Fellow Tory committee member Mark Reckless said: “It is a disgraceful that civil servants should be paying themselves bonuses when MPs who represent the taxpayers have stated they are not justified.” Yes it is. Remember that ordinary public sector workers have experienced an ongoing pay freeze as well as job cuts at the hands of the Coalition. All in it together? Yeah right!
