Don't mention the war!
Germany has effectively declared war on Britain via its EU functionaries. How should Britain respond?
- We got in lots of practice from 1914 to 1918 and again from 1939 and 1945. Plus, unlike the Germans, we’re still pretty match fit from Iraq and Afghanistan. So the next one should be a walkover.
- The German military is fat, unfit and swarming with peaceniks who have been brainwashed by an education system which for the last 70 years has been teaching them that “war is bad, m’kay?”
- Free men always fight better than slaves. (See, eg: Victor Davis Hanson’s Carnage And Culture). Germans really have nothing left worth fighting for: they are ruled by an elective dictatorship; their country is no longer theirs.
If the pioneers who built the British Empire- flawed but brilliant men who had fierce pride in themselves and their culture, men with names like Churchill, Mountbatten, Kitchener, Wellington, Marlborough, Cromwell, and Drake- could see what their descendants have done with what was given to them, I strongly suspect that they would have been rooting for the Axis to win in WWII.
At least then they could claim that Britain and the other Western nations surrendered their rights after being defeated by a materially (but not morally) superior enemy.
In the decades since that war, though, Britain surrendered her rights and her sovereignty to unaccountable, arrogant bureaucrats concerned only with their own power and privilege.
Now, the news isn't all bad- Brexit came as a shock to many, but it was a clear sign that the people of England are still interested in being English. But if the Germans- or, to be more precise, the German political establishment- have their way, they will do everything in their power to make sure that Britain's attempts to leave the European Union are so costly, so difficult, so drawn-out, and so exhausting, that no nation currently trapped under the EU's suffocating blanket will ever think of trying a similar stunt.
The British people have taken their first step toward true independence, and for that I hail them with the respect that is their due. But they have a long way to go yet.
And if, as Lord Commander Delingpole- for that really should be his title by now- says, there must be war to secure Britain's independence from Der Vaterland, then so be it.
Underfunded, under-equipped (though you wouldn't know it judging by the TOP GEAR episodes that involve surplus Royal Army equipment), criminally under-supported, and deeply unappreciated as it is, Her Majesty's Armed Forces actually have fought wars in recent memory. The Royal Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines have all seen repeated and bloody action in the Sandbox and the Rockpile.
Relative to fighting the RIFs on their home turf, dealing with a bunch of jumped-up Krauts insisting on preserving the integrity of a European Union that has no integrity, ought to be a stroll in Hyde Park.
Now obviously, nobody actually wants such a war. Real conservatives HATE war, especially wars that result in the nightmarish brutal meat-grinders of modern mechanised fighting. And I seriously doubt that the fight for British sovereignty will have to come to a shooting war.
But if that is what it takes in order for the rest of Europe to understand that Britain has a God-given right to determine her own destiny and rule her own borders as she sees fit, then by God, let it be done.
