First you try to do some dirty deals with a dirty old shitty murdering dictator who’s no better than he ought to be. (It’s ALL ABOUT OIL!….choris offstage.) Those deals could not be more designed to piss of the uSA your friend and ally, and also individual people associated with the Lockerbie-dead, like their surviving relations and legatees, even if you tried hard to bring it about.
Then you pretend somebody else did them, not you.
That gets Scotland into trouble (your tirn will soon come) which also pisses off the Scots while you’re at it. Even the Scottish Labour party.
Then yo go into hiding, pretending there’s nothing to talk about.
Then it comes out that you did it after all.
People like my colleague warned of the strategic consequences. Even Guido has noticed.
Then of course the soft-boiled-egg does actually connect with the electric fan after all. Brown’s apparent flatfootedness has gone beyond mere galumphing ineptitude and is thus a position cultivated for a reason. he hates us, he hates liberalism and the west and he wants it to fall down.
Now Brown is a rapidly-addressed kitchen servant, compared with these:
“It was disclosed earlier this week that Mr Brown would not hold bilateral talks with Mr Obama, despite the President hosting individual meetings with the leaders of Japan, China and Russia. Downing Street claimed that this was not unusual.”
This is not good for libertarians if the USA is going to tactfully pull up the ladder against us, while obviously talking to more impoartant people in Japan Russia and China. Actually I’m surproised India France and Germany were left out of that list but the journo might just not have finished his whistky in time to write them down.
I note this blog has been critical of Obama in the past. Clearly he’s no liberal in the libertarian true meaning of the word, but he also clearly knows which side the USA’s bread is buttered.
My real worry is that the American People will think the worse of us now, for things we didn’t want to do but wree done in our name. Even their Bankers despise us.
