Britain will not start World War Three over Ukraine, David Cameron says
The Telegraph ^ | 30 Jul 2014 | Christopher Hope

Posted on 07/31/2014 5:42:03 AM PDT by McGruff

The Prime Minister compared Russia’s behaviour in Ukraine to Germany’s before both break out of the First and Second world wars. Mr Cameron said then that Britain was “not about to launch a European war, we are not about to send the fleet to the Black Sea”. But Mr Cameron said the West had to draw a line or Russia would start to put similar pressure on European Union countries on the eastern fringes of the Continent like Romania.

I don't think anyone suspects the UK of starting a world war over Ukraine. The question is, has Russia already started it...?

Britain HAS NO army, navy or air force.

They have been cut to the bone.

Their military is a joke.

They won’t be able to cash that check...

James Blunt (forground) is the now famous British pop star who flouted Wes Clark's insanity. He was leading Recon into Pristina when he saw the Russians already holding the airport. Clark ordered him to take the airport at any cost and Blunt said no.



He doesn't look all that tough but he grew up military and has done time in some pretty hot spots.

Arthur Neville Chamberlain was a British Conservative politician who served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from May 1937 to May 1940. Chamberlain is best known for his appeasement foreign policy, and in particular for his signing of the Munich Agreement in 1938, conceding the German-populated Sudetenland region of Czechoslovakia to Germany. Too bad it didn’t stop WWII...history repeating itself...

I don’t think I’ll ever get over Poland or Estonia or Macho Grande for that matter. Those wounds run pretty deep.

Great Britain hasn't seen the likes of David Cameron's manliness since the days of Neville Chamberlain. Remember Chamberlain's famous “peace in our time” gaffe?

What our British cousins need is another lion like Winston Churchill or lioness like Margret Thatcher. The current crop of Labour and Conservatives are a bunch of wussies. Those who aren't wussies are Dhimmis for the Muslim invaders. Some are both. Average Brits are totally screwed.

The world’s “police force” is led by an empty suit. The world’s slipping into anarchy. WWIII is on the horizon.

Dunno. They are part of the same team, though. I feel like Ezekiel 39 is around the corner. And Luke 21. Etc.

WWIII started in 1991 when the 1960’s radical leftist in this country re-declared their “civil” war against the US.

The radical leftist decided to use muslim terrorist as their proxy fighters which took their re-declaration of “civil” war against the US global.

I’m talking about when it gets hot. As far as I’m concerned, September 1st 1939 has already re-occurred in Ukraine. It’s only going to escalate, to end in a LOT more than a couple of small, localized nuclear blasts.

I agree.

We can’t do much about it. It isn’t worth a nuclear war.

Right you are. The hero here was British general Mike Jackson, who was ordered by Clark to move on a Russian-controlled airfield. Jackson refused, saying "I'm not going to start the Third World War for you." Here's the full story, from Wikipedia.

It’s been hot.

Putin/Russia, China, and every other country run by someone above the level of idiot knows the radical left/dems have allied with radical muslims.

They are making their move to get territory now so they don’t have to expend wealth and manpower to conquer that territory later.

They’re creating “buffer zones” around their countries.

Russia and China both have muslim problems and know it’s just a matter of time before the radical left in this country encourages their muslim allies to rise up against them.

The radical left in this country are using the same tactics the Russians and Chinese used during the cold war, using proxy fighters to fight their wars.

I don’t know what there is to explain.

Are you too ignorant to know the radical left in this country have allied themselves with the muslims?

My post 25 should have made it clear to you, you justify our enemies aggression and paint it as defending themselves from the evil American people.

I’ll try and explain it to you.

I was explaining how WWIII has gone hot, it’s not going hot sometime in the future, it’s hot now, it’s here.

Countries around the world are acting in a war mode.

Russia and China know it’s here so they are in the war mode of seizing territory.

In a war, you seize territory early and make your enemy fight to take it back if they want it.

If there is going to be a fight, better to fight in and destroy someone else’s country other than your own.

No country around the world can trust the US because of the jug eared clown in the WH and the radical left.

The radical left in all their brilliance allowed the muslim genie out of the bottle when they decided to use muslim terrorist as their proxy fighters.

The muslim genie isn’t going back in the bottle without war and it’s going to be global.

As long as that jug eared clown in in the WH, no country is safe from a war with muslims and no country knows if the US will be backing the muslims in their war.

That isn’t what is going on at all, Russia and China are not worried about Muslims, or Iran, or something.

Red China and the little KGB man never ended their war against the free world.

NATO still is facing a hostile aggressive Russia, and the world is seeing a global threat from China.

Putin is building empire and power to control Europe and the United States, not to protect himself from Muslims.

I will agree with that.

Putin sees Muslims as a means to an end. If he can use them to advance his power.. then he will.
