When will the British have a true leader?
Thursday, 12 August 2010
When will the British have a government that serves the people?
When will we stop our aggressive foreign policy?
UK, August 12, 2010 (Pal Telegraph, by Peter Eyre) – The purpose of writing this short series of articles is to prove that for a couple of decades (or even possibly longer) we have not had a government in office that is truly representative of the people for the people. In actual fact I would go a stage further and say that they all carried out an act of treason against the constitution of the United Kingdom and caused immeasurable suffering and death to the people it represents.
These respective leaders, ministers and government embarked on a policy that not only put this country at great risk but also knowingly used weapons that were in violation of the Geneva Convention. They were not only Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) but also totally indiscriminate, resulting in the death/sickness of millions of innocent civilians, their own military forces and then crossing international borders to continue their deadly journey around the globe.
There is no question or doubt that these past and current leaders, the British Government, Ministers and the Ministry of Defence knew of the implications in using such weapons, which beyond a shadow of doubt implicates them as being guilty of war crimes, amounting to mass genocide. In order to paint this picture of deceit and treachery we must start with the current Prime Minister and work backwards.
We currently see (the not so new kid on the block) David Cameron launch himself down the same path of self destruction and one could ask what makes him any different to all those that were before him? From my perspective I can see our new Prime Minister possible turning into one of the worst ever.
So what sets this man aside from the others and what makes this particular cabinet dangerous. To find the answer to this and many other concerns one has to turn the clock back to when David Cameron was a young, up and coming, researcher for the Conservative Party under the apron strings of the “Iron Lady” herself, Maggie Thatcher. One has to see how this man with other senior members of government allowed our country to be put in grave danger all in the name of money and personal gain.
Back in 1975 all sorts of clandestine operations were taking place in South Africa ranging from a very active Chemical and Biological Warfare (CBW) programme and also advances in nuclear research. All of this activity was being monitored and approved by both the US and UK Governments. It was in this same year that South Africa announced that it had a pilot plant for uranium enrichment at Pelindaba. Ninety-seven pounds of enriched uranium, enough to make seven atomic bombs, was shipped to the plant by the US Nuclear Corporation of Oak Ridge, Tennessee to assist it.
From 1977 onwards the US policy to South Africa hardened. Because of its exploitation of Namibian uranium, South Africa was removed from its permanent position in the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Shortly thereafter, Soviet satellite pictures showing South Africa preparing to detonate a nuclear explosive in the Kalahari Desert brought a warning from US president Jimmy Carter not to do so.
In 1979 the “Iron Lady” Maggie Thatcher came to power and progressively introduced Neo – Liberalism during her reign which many believe was the downfall of the United Kingdom. However Thatcher also became involved in some very sinister discussions, one being the trip to South Africa by her errand boy David Cameron. Our current Prime Minister at the tender age of 24 went down to South Africa on an all expenses paid jolly compliments or ARMSCOR. David was accompanied by the only technical person capable of dealing with this very controversial deal (acquisition of three battlefield nuclear bombs) non other than Ken Warren (now Sir Ken Warren) who appears to be the mastermind behind this very shonky deal which we will cover later in this series, which is in date order.
It was during the 1980 that things started to step up a notch both in the area of CBW development and also in South Africa’s under the table nuclear weapons research. It was also around this time that development of a “Super Gun” started to emerge all of which was known and supported by both the US and the UK.
Early in the war with Iran, the Iraqi government engaged world- renowned artillery expert Gerald V. Bull, whose lifetime obsession was the construction of a “Supergun,” a huge howitzer able to fire satellites into space or launch artillery shells thousands of miles into enemy territory. Bull did not accomplish his dream and was sentenced and jailed for one year in 1980 for illegally selling weapons [encouraged by the CIA] to South Africa. Despite the US arms embargo he did manage to design some of the most effective artillery pieces in the world.
In April 1981 US Secretary of State, Alexander Haig, invited South African Foreign Minister, Pik Botha, to the US, and the French, British and US vetoed four UN resolutions calling for sanctions against South Africa. For the next four years South Afr ica could count on a more tolerant US attitude and the full support of Britain..
In September 1982, Armscor announced that its G-5 tow and the G-6 SP Gun/Tow could fire nuclear rounds if necessary, but that South Africa did not intend to use such weapons. The existence of the G5 towed artillery piece was revealed to the world and surprise was expressed that such an advanced system could be developed locally. The G6 was revealed in the mid 1980’s. The G6 and G5 are built by LIW, a division of DENEL in South Africa
Gerard Bull was first contracted by the Iraqi government in 1981. They desperately needed artillery to out-range the enemy in the protracted Iran-Iraq War. The association allowed Bull to yet again seek sponsorship of a space-launch supergun. Sadam Hussein liked the idea, and Project Babylon was born. Throughout the 1980’s Bull’s dealings with Iraq had the covert approval of Western governments, who saw Iraq as a counterweight to revolutionary Iran.
In March of 1988, Bull received a contract to build two full sized ‘Project Babylon’ 1000 mm superguns and one ‘Baby Babylon’ 350 mm prototype for a total of $25 million. The project was given the cover designation ‘PC-2’ (Petrochemical Complex-2). British engineer Christopher Cowley was the project manager.
