    Army short of soldiers

    So the recent advertising campaign showing showing operations in the field coming to a halt so a young Muslim chap could carry out his morning prayers wasn't a big success then?

    The Salisbury Poison Gas Incident II

    Don't forget the murder of the journalist Babchenko. This was absolutely positively definitely carried out by the Russians. Cue International condemnation of Russia, Putin is a monster etc. Russia says "We had nothing to do with this", the world says "Well, they would say that, who else would want him dead, they are the most likely". Until... It turns out his death was staged by the Ukrainians and the chap is still very much alive and well. Occams Razor found wanting here. Original report of murder. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/world-europe-44296672 Subsequent revelations. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/world-europe-44320240

    Horse fly bites

    As soon as possible after being bitten, place the back of a spoon which you have left in a mug of boiling water for 30 seconds or so onto the bite. Keep it there for as long as you can stand, and then keep reapplying to the bite, longer each time as the spoon cools. If I do this after a bite there is no itching at all.

    Estate agent fees

    I'm no expert, but you own nothing to anyone, not even EA3. Your contract with EA2 cannot be handed unilaterally over to EA3, you would have needed to sign up with them to have a contract for them to enforce. This is just my lay-opinion, I am not a lawyer, but my gut feeling is that you are quids in! Oh, and if they suddenly send a letter of contract out for you to sign, when they realise their error, don't sign it (a similar thing happened to a friend)

    The fox "assassin "

    A family member did a small good deed this week that was picked up by the local press. The Sun got hold of the story. By the time they had added and embellished the story you'd think she should be in line for the George Cross. A real eye opener as to how the press works

    Wire fence question

    Hi, Just trying to dog proof my new garden. There are concrete post in situ, with holes at various levels. I've run wire ( and tensioned it to the best of my ability) and secured both ends. My real question is what is the best way to now attach the actual wire fencing (a mesh 50mm chicken wire type) to the strained wires. Only thing I can think of is cable ties. Does an actual thing exist for this purpose? Many thanks
  9. They certainly have had others questioning the bombing in Syria, but this guest was one with a huge level of knowledge, experience and expertise in the matter being discussed. Please check his Wikipedia entry, (Jonathan Shaw) to see why the public should have had the opportunity to hear him out.

    Was just about to suggest this, it is sensational and I can not recommend enough. I hear that Benedict Cumberbatch has bought the film rights, which fills me with dread as the book is perfection and ought to be left well alone.
  11. No, but it also doesn't always have to be coincidence. Murdoch is a strategic advisor for Genie oil, whose major asset is a oil / gas field in the Golan heights (which the UN recognises as Syrian territory). There are huge reserves here, which Genie is keen to get hold of by (illegal) drilling. A guest on Murdoch's Sky news raises valid concerns / questions about the justification given to bomb Syria, and he is swiftly rushed off air. Surely you can concede that it looks a little suspect.

    Bombs away (Syria) ...

    Sky news, shutting down a guest who isn't following the narrative. Wonder why? Anyway, completely unconnected, take a look at who is on the board of this oil firm (Murdoch, Cheney, Rothschild). This company's main asset is an oil and gas field awarded by the Israelis, but a large part of which is in Syria. As ever, follow the money. https://genieoilgas.com/about-us/strategic-advisory-board

    The Salisbury poison gas incident.

    It wasn't meant / needed as justification for UN/Nato intervention. It was to sell the war and gain the backing of the public, who now thought it was a moral need to go to war. See also Tony Blair's 45 minute claim for Gulf War II. And don't even mention Cameron`s Libya intervention, and the ongoing consequences from that. Oh, and NATOs eastward expansion, despite assurances this would never happen.

    The Salisbury poison gas incident.

    Probably not a direct conflict, but I get the impression that the prodding and poking of Russia that has been going on in recent years is being taken to the next stage.

    The Salisbury poison gas incident.

    Of course they lie, we all know that. The point the examples try to make is that events are now created or manipulated to justify conflict. It's the size and consequence of the lie I was alluding to.
