Just about a year ago, I wrote in fairly straightforward and uncompromising language of the fools who went towards their deaths in Syria and the surrounding regions. I of course am writing of the foolish people such as James Foley, (beheaded), Alan Henning (beheaded), many others all either shot or beheaded, and the latest name to appear once more in the headlines of the press, Kayla Mueller (apparently killed either by Isis, or the American bomb strikes).
The stories which now come tumbling out of the ether about this silly, stupid and totally, mind-bogglingly confused, young woman are mainly space-fillers, basing their content upon claims by ‘released’ Yazidi female hostages of the sexual activities of the Isil leader as he allegedly raped this young ‘aid worker’ in the days and weeks before her death. Its a bit like our own politicians saying, loudly and piously, ‘Look what happens when you don’t embrace Democracy’.
Bullshit! And again, Bullshit! Kayla Mueller went into the most dangerous place on this Earth, (most dangerous for Westerners, especially good-looking western women) because she ‘wanted to help’. No one begged her to go across the border to work with Medecins sans Frontieres and some so-called charity called Support for Life; no one dragged her by her hair, she walked and drove into the cauldron because she was ‘deeply’ moved by the stories of suffering, and ‘she wanted to help’. She got exactly what she deserved, because she made the fatal mistake of thinking that the fundamentalists are just misguided Muslims, trying to make their own way in the fog which is Islamic thinking. She was wrong! She died because she thought she knew better; better than all those who warned her, and many others exactly like her, that Isil was worse than all the others. Worse because there are few things in this world to be feared than a bunch of fanatics who do not fear death, but actually embrace it, if it brings their beloved Caliphate one step nearer.
As I previously wrote:-
“It is all very well saying ‘These actions, by these murderous men, are against civilised behaviour’, when everyone accepts that most of these terrorists, and probably all of their supporters, don’t accept Western values or behaviour at all. They think us decadent, they think us immoral, they think us foolish. So why even bother to help, when the helpers will no doubt be treated the same as they do to their other enemies and captives.
It is all very well for Lord Dannatt, he of the smart uniform and totally-closed mind, to state that British soldiers should go and fight in that sandy shit-hole; but I notice that he wasn’t volunteering his services.
As I stated before, they brought their fate upon themselves, and not a single bullet, nor a gallon of fuel, nor a drop of blood should be spilled by America or the United Kingdom to rescue the fools who knowingly went into Bedlam!”
