In December seventy years ago the French decided they would stay in Indochina. This set off a chain of misery which did not end when the Americans were defeated by Vietnamese communists in 1975 with the fall of Saigon. French occupation of Vietnam ended with their defeat at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu in 1954. The Vietnamese Cambodian war then went on until 1991.

Perhaps we should all learn a little more forgotten history.
There is a vile and dangerous threat to the modern western world. Those who pose this threat have no morals, ethics, or humanity. They wish to impose their stone age version of warped ‘civilisation’ on the world by turning it into one monstrous Islamic fundamentalist caliphate.
Violence, repression, rape, mutilation, and murder is common currency to these snarling, smirking, revolting savages. Their religion has nothing to do with their creed of indiscriminate destruction. These dangerous, disgusting, loathsome deviants are destroying the religion they claim to follow.
However, there is an even more insidious danger facing Europe and the USA. The danger is that the Civilised West will respond in kind. (We have already had the welcome vapourisation of the Isis executioner, so-called Jihadi John.) President Obama condemns these horrific events in Paris as an ‘attack on all of humanity’. How long before we see the BUFF’s in the air over the Middle East?
In the recent elections in Poland there has been a notable swing to the Right, with the left-liberal pro European Union elements shunned at the ballot box. In the wake of yesterday’s horrific killings France has closed its borders. In the UK David Prime Minister David Cameron’s chances of winning a vote to stay in the EU have taken a nose dive. Ultra left-liberal Sweden has reimposed border controls.
And so it goes… And all eyes turn to Germany….
with deepest sympathy for all those killed, hurt, and bereaved in France
