The British have decided to follow Americans by assassinating their citizens without charge. They’ve decided to forget about the rights of British citizens. This is an escalation because the British voted two years ago against military action in Syria. Britain has been militarily involved in Iraq and other nations, but not in Syria. So this is a significant change.
To me it’s almost an opening salvo. It isn’t like someone secretly gave us this information. This serves the purpose of conditioning the British people. Before you know it, they’ll forget about the vote that took place several years ago. There will be more stories about how horrible ISIS is, and the British won’t take into consideration the fact that the answer to ISIS is staring us right in the face: Just get out of the way, and let the Russians and Iranians handle them.
Despite all the drones and bombs that we have dropped, ISIS is in the oil business! There’s something truly bizarre about that. There’s one simple solution: Get out of there. We don’t need to be in there. We only make the problem more complex.
America doesn’t need to practice mercantilism either. We thought for so long that we had to protect the oil. Well, right now we have a glut of oil because the market provided the solution. We drilled and found a deluge of oil. Even the Egyptians are finding oil. So the marketplace and Liberty are so much better than international bodies like NATO.
The sooner we wake up, the better.
