Kosovo a watershed for Scots independence
Whilst NATO argues over the possibilities
of sending in ground troops
and the Serbians are (quite rightly) hammered from the air, another little
step towards self determination is being trampled underfoot by Westminster.
The Scottish parliament may well be filled with Tony Blairs YES men, and
Scotland condemned to more countless decades of subservience to London
and all because Alex Salmond had the nerve to point out what an incomplete war brought down on Yugoslavia would lead too.
Saddam is still in power because the allies flinched at the last moment,
and the will of the people of Iraq is steeled even more than before
Alex Salmond was right. The Serbs WILL fight harder.
The Serbs/Yugoslavs will NOT cave in because we drop ordinance, they need
to be forced to see the error of their ways and then to back out of Kosovo,
but it will take ground troops.
But the jingoistic, flag waving low-brows have won the day Clobba Slobba
as the SUN said, labours Scottish sheep will keep voting the same way, lost to
reality, forsaken of the truth through media spun amnesia and knuckle dragging
And the losers SCOTLAND and the Kosovars
The Winners, London and Yugoslavia.
Alex Salmond will be proved right, but by then the tide of the millennium mania will cover the Earth and Scotland will sit in its traditional January 1st stupor (which I miss!) and think 'What did we do? Why are WE not free. Where are the Asprins'........
