Prime Minister Cameron trapped by his own words

Prime Minister Cameron trapped by his own words

by Don Hank

Late in February, David Cameron held a televised press conference (see video) reporting a number of severe sanctions by his government against the Gadaffi regime, which is considered illegitimate by all European nations and by NATO based on the “use of military force against its own people.”
Cameron said himself in a televised speech:

“We must not tolerate this regime using military force against its own people.” [my emphasis]

He ended his heroic speech by saying to Gadaffi:


Such a brave freedom fighter, that David Cameron!

In reality, rebels reportedly committed atrocities and destroyed public property in Libya, things all rebels do. Should the Gadaffi government sit idly by and watch the country destroyed?
Apparently, European leaders unanimously think so.
It occurred to many thinking people at the time of Cameron’s straighforward speech that such violence might occur in Europe at some point.
Then what would Cameron do?
How could he defend his own people if he took his own advice to Gadaffi and applied it to the UK, refraining from the use of force to stop violence?
Well, now that rebels are doing to Britain just a fraction of what Libyan rebels are doing there, it seems as if the Cameron government is considering doing just what he spanked Gadaffi for doing under vastly more desperate circumstances. Indeed, there are no reports of widespread atrocities by rebels coming out of the UK – only reports of looting and burning.
Yet Cameron, since the mobs have taken over the streets, is sounding tough as usual:

“People should be in no doubt that we will do everything necessary to restore order to Britain’s streets and to make them safe for the law-abiding.”

Everything necessary? You mean, like what Gadaffi did in Libya?
Well, yes, as it turns out.
According to BBC News:

“…[Home Secretary Theresa] May declined to rule out a host of options, including the use of water cannon, military support for the police, or a curfew.” [my emphasis]

For many years, British activists have warned that Cameron – along with everyone else in government – is nothing but a quisling, or puppet of a foreign illegitimate government, namely, the EU, which was founded by a stealth movement that started in the 1920s and was never approved by the European people, only by their “leaders.” (Set aside a half hour for this must-see video on that subject).
Despite Cameron’s (and the EU’s) description of the Gadaffi (and Mubarak) government as illegitimate simply because a group of vociferous rebels opposed them, Cameron’s government and the EU he answers to meet that very same description, and in spades!
A growing number of disenfranchised UK citizens have been longing for the day when the UK is back in their own hands and their nation’s ties with the autocratic EU severed forever.
The general mood in England is that the rebels have gone far enough in ripping apart their nation, and there is talk of vigilante action if the Cameron government continues to make ineffectual speeches while refusing to get really tough with the rioters.
Yet, David Cameron has trapped himself with the above-cited tough words against Gadaffi. Deploying troops on UK streets would make his (and other Western leaders’ including Obama’s) stern warnings to the Libyan leader sound extremely hypocritical. In turn, the EU has trapped itself by importing – against the will of the people — millions of foreign immigrants who are not required in any way to integrate, to accept any aspect of the local culture or way of life, or to even work to support themselves. Crime has risen in proportion to the number of these new immigrants.
In view of the government’s ineffective response, whether or not Cameron eventually employs military force to quell the riots – and he may have no other choice — he need not be surprised if millions of British subjects say to him:

Mr. Cameron, GO NOW

and take your stinking EU with you!
