Investment Opportunity


 
Thought you might want to consider getting on board early.

A German Engineer just started his own business in Afghanistan.  He's making land mines that look like prayer mats.

It's doing well.


He says prophets are going through the roof.

They must never be forgotten


Spare a thought, often, for these brave young men and women who died far from home in a country that they should never have been sent to. If the MP's had to lead them in to battle, British forces would never have been deployed in the anus of the world that is Afghanistan. I hope Blair and Bush never sleep soundly again for the pain and grief they've caused.

The following is courtesy of Daily Mail. If you're religious, offer a prayer and if you are or aren't, shed a tear for these young people.


So young, so brave and still in their teens... Faces of the heroes who never saw 20 - and memorial we couldn't leave behind 

  • Lives of young Britons killed fighting the Taliban had been commemorated on memorial walls in Camp Bastion
  • As UK's campaign in Afghanistan ended it was confirmed walls had been dismantled
  • Army insisted it was not because of fears memorials would be defaced or destroyed
  • Top-ranking soldiers and relatives of those killed said there was an obvious risk they would be 'desecrated'
  • Defence Secretary admits Afghanistan still plagued by insurgency, and failure to leave a memorial seen by some as a symbol of the West’s failure to secure the country, despite hundreds of lives lost
  • Of the 453 British troops who have died in the conflict, 35 were teenagers. 20,000 Afghan civilians also killed 

They served their country with honour and courage – and 453 paid the ultimate price. But, after 13 years of bloodshed, there will be no memorial in Afghanistan to mark the troops’ sacrifice.
The lives of the young Britons killed fighting the Taliban had been commemorated on memorial walls in Camp Bastion, but as the UK’s campaign in the country ended yesterday, it was confirmed they had been dismantled.
A source said: ‘There is no memorial left in Afghanistan.’ The Army insisted the decision was not because of fears the memorials would be defaced or destroyed. But top-ranking soldiers and relatives of those who were killed said there was an obvious risk they would be ‘desecrated’ by a resurgent Taliban.

THE FRESH FACED YOUNG MEN BARELY OUT OF SCHOOL WHO WENT TO AFGHANISTAN AND NEVER RETURNED 

They went as fresh-faced young men and women, some of them barely out of school, to deliver stability and peace. But 453 British soldiers who travelled to Afghanistan never returned. The youngest was William Aldridge, deployed three days after his 18th birthday. He died on July 10, 2009.

Mike Reid's UKIP Calypso

I'm sure you've all heard the rumpus about the DJ Mike Reid's UKIP Calypso. It's been withdrawn now over the usual cries of  racism just because he sang in a West Indian accent. How pathetic are the pc crowd going to get before the country screams "Enough!"?

I think the words are very, very true and appropriate to be honest:

Taxpayers' money where does it go? Not even George Osborne knows, when we're in power and we engage, there will be no tax on the minimum wage.

Leaders committed a cardinal sin, open the borders let them all come in, illegal immigrants in every town, stand up and be counted Blair and Brown.

Oh yes, when we take charge, and the new prime minister is Farage, we can trade with the world again when Nigel is at No. 10.

The British people have been let down, that's why Ukip is making ground, from Crewe to Cleethorpes, outer Hendon, they don't believe Cameron's referendum.

Coalition could be a fact, with any party we could make a pact, stop telling lies about us do, and we'll stop telling the truth about you.

Oh yes, when we take charge, and the new prime minister is Farage, we can trade with the world again when Nigel is at No. 10.

Though our pensions scheme is in a mess, we need money for the NHS, to Jean-Cleade Juncker we're giving away £55m a day.

Oh what a farce he won the vote, this is my favourite Juncker quote, he looked a reporter straight in the eye and said 'when things get serious it's time to lie'.

Oh yes, when we take charge, and the new prime minister is Farage, we can trade with the world again when Nigel is at No. 10.

The EU live in wonderland, tried to ban bent bananas and British jam, we don't want jam the EU way, jam yesterday tomorrow but never today

The daily polls suggest somehow, Ukip are the third party now, in the euro elections we were so immersed, we weren't the third party we were the first

Oh yes, when we take charge, and the new prime minister is Farage, we can trade with the world again when Nigel is at No. 10.

With the government sitting on the fence, Ukip policy makes more sense, to get out of Europe is our target, Commonwealth not common market.

Other parties please take note, Ukip is not a protest vote, so mark your cross and by word of mouth, tell them what to do in Thanet South.

Oh yes, when we take charge, and the new prime minister is Farage, we can trade with the world again when Nigel is at No. 10.

With the EU we must be on our mettle, want to change our lawnmowers and our kettles, our hairdryers, smart phones and vacuum cleaners, but Ukip is wise to their misdemeanours.

Farage likes his fags and beer, but there is one thing I want to get clear, now I like Nigel, he's a friend of mine, but he appears more than Dimbleby on Question Time.

Oh yes, when we take charge, and the new prime minister is Farage, we can trade with the world again when Nigel is at No. 10.

The other parties will count the cost, in Eastleigh, Thanet, Thurrock and Boston, Labour and Tories shaking in their boots when Ukip kick them up the grass roots.

Meanwhile down at Clacton-on-Sea, Ukip are making history, Douglas Carswell, we're quite adamant, will be the first MP in parliament.

Oh yes, when we take charge, and the new prime minister is Farage, we can trade with the world again when Nigel is at No. 10.
