ZanuLieBorg is not only wickedly culpable over soldiers’ kit: it is also being taken for a mug…

…by people like the suppliers of the stuff below….

The following parts were bought a little while ago by me in a cheapo 50-Kg  job lot of RAF-surplus electronics bits and pieces. On idly peeling off the pricesticker covers to see what the MOD customarily pays for stuff, I was astonished.

The following part is a VHF/UHF coax to socket connector, probably about £3 from Farnell in Leeds:-

Strewth!  £84 effing quid....?

Strewth! £84 effing quid....?

And this…this is a 0.001 μF polystyrene capacitor, of the sort you can get from China at about 2p a part. Even Maplin, expensive for this sort of thing, charges about 10p:-

I mean, what planet is the MOD buying-office on...?

I mean, what planet is the MOD buying-office on...?

Not only is this government viscerally and institutionally anti-forces, but “big business” in the form of Defence Contractors is “avvin-a-luff” at the taxpayer’s expense. You could almost believe that there is a cosy conspiracy between suppliers and the MOD buyers, and that said buyers are getting a private kickback in some form…after all, it’s happened many times before.

And the only sufferers are the poor soldiers who don’t get enough of the right kit as it “costs too much”….

Libertarians would have to be concerned at this, because as and when we come to power, we shall have to be alert for this sort of scam. You all know that I have often trumpeted the need for a Libertarian or fully-minimal-statist government here or anywhere to ensire it has very very powerful Armed Forces, at least for the dangerous years while other more statist nations try to undermine, or even directly assault it: it will highlight their dangerous isolation in pre-capitalist barbarism, and their lack of popular support.

The bastard donkeys pretending to lead our Lions, don’t think about their use of language.

David Davis (no, I was NOT in the SAS, and I’m NOT that one, I just write on here.)

Read this report from the Barclay Bugle, which contains disgustingly ill-thought-out language from politicians in Westmonster, about the latest preventable military deaths in Afghanistan, which were sustained by the soldiers of an advanced nation, against pre-capitalist barbarians who were getting their (“improvised”) weapons from people whose arses we ought already to have kicked first.

“Deliberate operation” …. if the guys were there “accidentally”, does that make it different?

“….and that the woman soldier, who was serving with the Intelligence Corps, may have been taken along in case female suspects had to be searched.”

This is war. Who the f*** cares who searches you? The bastards are trying to overturn Western Civilisation. (I believe this about them – you may not. So we may have to agree to differ.) Do we owe the politeness of Western Sensibility to our enemies in the minutes when we are trying to kill them for opposing our way of life, so that “female suspects” will be searched by a woman? That bit comes after they have surrendered, as has always been understood in moral polities.

Also, it is not suitable to send women into combat areas. I have always thought this.

Broadly speaking, the governmentist-release-bits could have been written by leftist hand-wringing-bozos who (a) don’t want to be associated with this business, and (b) agree with the “Tali Ban”, whatever that might be (I don’t know anyway, but if it shoots at us, then it’s the enemy as that’s a sort of definition) and seem to think its acts to be a sort of unavoidable plague.

Libertarians are of course not in favour of “State” armed forces, knowing these to be less efficient and more badly-planned and led than proper ones. However, the British version is the nearest in most circumstances to the real thing, with the possible exception of the Israelis. If the British are doing some fighting, even under Zanu-Laborg (which has not yet fully managed to trash the Forces as an Institution but is still trying hard even at the end of its life) then we are probably in the right.
