Love and hurt all in one image

Love and hurt all in one image

By @ShaunyNews > This is a blog I am almost opposed to, it’s about war and what it does to the people who enter it’s cold shadow, I dislike war, I dislike illegal War but I am looking past all what I believe loved ones and their own. The image to the left is the utter reality of War, make no mistake. When we look at these  men and woman who are putting their lives on the line wherever they are from in the World, fighting this ‘War on Terror’ a terror only getting worse as we have seen in Australia, France and lately and the ones before where the terror came home to us all, we often forget the psychological cost it has on the individual. We see them on the news and we seen images of them coming home We have to ask, the person that left the first time from family and loved ones on their first tour, is that person the same person who returned  home after their last tour?

I just watched an amazing movie “American Sniper’ and seen firsthand what War  can do and does do to people when they finish their tours for good and come back to civilian life and struggle, they want to be back in that war zone or the war zone has killed their minds.

I just sat and watched this movie about an American Soldier. He was famous, called the ‘Legend’ true story. He did his tours he came home, he battled the demons and became husband and Daddy all over again. Amazing story, I can’t ruin the ending, but if this movie doesn’t win an Oscar for telling up close and personal the tragic part of war, not the killing and fighting, but for those left at home. The parents, the partners, wives and children. I cried at the end, but I know crying is ok, it is what makes us humans, human, so I guess I am human.

Reality of War is much harder than many see. The people who give things up to protect our streets back home. I guess when I say all the time ‘I love movies’ is because a movie is acting out of reality, especially this movie. The hurt and pain I felt but could not imagine having to do. I get why Soldiers go over and want to keep going. It that ‘Band of Brothers’ feel to it. Woman fight also, but you know what I mean. Why I said it at the top

Understanding pain is something we all must one day confront, I guess I confronted it a long time ago and know how blessed I am to be here and have loved ones who love me. If I could fight I probably would you know, sadly I am disabled now, 41 years old and fighting a different fight, the same fight we all fight, that is life, so take it for granted, whatever your story. Many have it worse so if you can read this, you are lucky, I just hope and pray one day wars can end and peace can happen. Sadly we are closer to a big war than we have been since the start of the Cold War, so more men and woman will go and fight because they feel they have to go and do that, we must respect that person right?

‘Blair may face war crimes charges’ – Liberal Democrat peer


Well Well Well

Well for many a year we the people have asked the question “Should Tony Blair be charged with War Crimes” and we must add in GWB fron the US of A. These 2 committed crimes that nobody gave them permission to do. They went ahead and invaded Iraq when the entire planet was pleading and demonstrating they shouldn’t. There was a movie about what may happen here in the video below. I think they, Blair and Bush should be tried for an illegal war. Lets see where this one goes. Watch this space. More to come

Tony Blair may face war crimes charges arising from the findings of a public inquiry into the role Britain played in the 2003 Iraq war, the House of Lords has been informed. Lord Dykes of Harrow Weald, a Liberal Democrat peer, claimed the publication of the long-awaited findings of Sir John Chilcot’s inquiry into the Iraq war had been delayed to drag out the anguish of the ex-Labour Prime Minister. Speaking in the House of Lords on Tuesday, Dykes said the continued delay of Chilcot’s report was an“utter and total disgrace.” “More and more people think it is some kind of attempt to prolong the agony for Mr Blair facing possible war crimes charges,” he added.

At one time, Blair was one of Britain’s most popular prime ministers. But in the wake of damning allegations stemming from the 8-year war that blackened his political legacy, the former prime minister turned Middle East Envoy and business consultant is reviled by many in the UK. Reflecting on Britain’s war in Iraq, Blair recently told Vanity Fair the invasion that he and US President George W. Bush pushed for was followed by a “long and hard and brutal and bloody” battle that was far more difficult than anyone had anticipated. He insisted the problems that currently plague Iraq are “huge,” and denied they have been aggravated by the brutal war his administration presided over.

Lord Douglas Hurd, who held the position of Conservative foreign secretary between 1989 and 1995, warned on Tuesday the Chilcot report’s delay was no longer related to “mere negligence” and had become “a scandal.” Addressing the House of Lords, Hurd said the delay of the report – which was originally due to be published three years ago – now held alarming national implications.

A national scandal

The last official public hearing relating to the Chilcot inquiry occurred in February 2011. The primary reason for the delay in publishing the controversial probe’s findings was thought to have been related to conflict between the US State Department and Whitehall over declassifying confidential and potentially incendiary communications between Blair and then-US President Bush.

The communications in question related to the period prior to, during and after the Iraq war. On Tuesday, however, Lord Wallace of Saltaire confirmed negotiations over the publication of these conversations had come to a close. Wallace, a government minister and Cabinet office spokesman, said if Chilcot’s report wasn’t released before the end of February, it would not be publically disclosed until after May’s general election. He added the inquiry was independent of government and the report’s publication date was a matter for Sir John Chilcot, who headed the inquiry, to decide.

Wallace emphasized it would be inappropriate for the findings of Chilcot’s inquiry to surface in the immediate run-up to the general election because Gordon Brown’s government had previously committed to allow adequate time “for substantial consultation and debate of this enormous report when it is published.” The colossal one million-word document is expected to contain details relating to more than 200 Cabinet meeting discussions.

Lord Hurd heavily criticized the report’s extended delay, warning the British public deserves answers.“This is not something of trivial importance. It is something of which a large number of people in this country look anxiously for truth,” he said. But Lord Wallace responded, insisting such delays were “not usual” for an inquiry of this nature.

Referencing other delays in publishing similar reports, Wallace concluded the Chilcot inquiry examined nine years of British foreign policy as well as military operations in Iraq, so its length was not surprising.

Transparency concerns

Labour former Attorney General Lord Morris of Aberavon argued ex-PM Gordon Brown, who set up the inquiry, had pledged that all UK documents, excluding those that posed a risk to national security, would be released. Morris inquired whether Brown’s vow would be honored and demanded a concrete indication as to who would be responsible for presiding over the report’s publication parameters post May 15. Lord Wallace said all relevant documentation had been examined as part of the probe, and discussions regarding which documents should be made public had been completed.

These 2 committed acts of war that were not allowed. They did it for money and profit. They are going to get what is coming to them....

In addition to US-UK tension over the publication of potentially inflammatory Bush-Blair conversations, a shortage of staff is thought to be central to the delay of Chilcot’s report. Speaking in the House of Lords, Wallace said Chilcot’s team lacked sufficient manpower to sift through the enormous piles of documents required. Draft reports of the Iraq war inquiry that surfaced in December rattled Britain’s establishment, with senior Whitehall figures battling to sanitize its findings. One well-informed source told the Times that the report’s findings are far more scathing than expected, and have prompted a legal firestorm in the heart of the British establishment.

Iraqi ISIS Militants Threaten Revenge Attacks On USA Soil


cegrab-20140819-061055-139-1-522x293

Iraqi militants have threatened to respond to US airstrikes by attacking American targets, posting a video in which they warn: “We will drown all of you in blood”. The message, which was accompanied by photographs of beheadings, came as Barack Obama announced Kurdish peshmerga troops, supported by US jets, had recaptured the strategically important Mosul Dam. The US president said Islamic State (IS) fighters remained “a threat to Iraq and the entire region” and said Iraqis “must reject them and unite by pushing them out of lands they have occupied”. “They claim to represent Sunni grievances but they slaughter Sunni men, women and children,” he said, adding limited military missions would continue.

Unlike al Qaeda, IS has, to date, focused on seizing land in Iraq and Syria for its self-proclaimed caliphate, rather than attacking Western targets. Earlier, the group denied losing control of Mosul Dam, which supplies water and electricity to much of the country. It had been feared they would cut pipes and cables or blow up the structure, branded the “most dangerous in the world” by the US Army in 2007, causing huge loss of life and extensive damage along the Tigris valley.

Army spokesman Lt Gen Qassim al Moussawi said at least 170 bombs had been dismantled around the site but warned many more remain. Meanwhile, Sky News has gained exclusive access to suspected IS militants who were captured by Kurdish fighters. The trio are being held in a secret location, claiming they were tortured into making confessions. And IS militants killed dozens of Kurdish peshmerga fighters and captured 170 of them, a Twitter account that supports the group said

Iraq’s outgoing foreign minister Hoshiyar Zebari also said Kurdish officials would take part in negotiations on forming a new government, paving the way for improved ties between Kurds and the central administration. It came after David Cameron insisted Britain would not be dragged into another war in Iraq to fight what he called “monstrous” jihadists. He spoke out after it emerged the UK had briefly sent a number of ground troops to Irbil to prepare for a rescue mission to help displaced Yazidi people. A strongly worded statement followed confusion over Britain’s involvement in Iraq after a series of media interviews by senior ministers. “I want to be absolutely clear to you and to families watching at home. Britain is not going to get involved in another war in Iraq,” the Prime Minister said in a televised address. “We are not going to be putting boots on the ground. We are not going to be sending in the British Army.” Mr Cameron’s pledge followed comments by Defence Secretary Michael Fallon, who said the UK’s latest involvement in Iraq would likely last “weeks and months”. Mr Fallon had been addressing British troops in Cyprus, as it was revealed UK soldiers had been back on the ground in Iraq for the first time since 2009.
