The loathsome Cameron has been on TV this morning. He's in Indonesia which is a favourite recruitment area for ISIS. So says Sky News, ignoring the fact that the UK also contributes here. But Sky, as a broadcaster with total allegiance to the bourgeois like all broadcasters, never misses a chance to shit on foreigners, and Indonesia is Muslim too just to make it worse. Yet despite this, speaking in a beautifully sculpted tropical garden, the shapely mosque behind the PM served only to add gravitas and religiosity to his peevish words and wreath him in clouds of sweet smelling incense. At least in theory.
Anyway, Cameron says the British army will attack ISIS on the streets of London should they, or rather when they turn up, and wants to bomb Libya again (if that doesn't make things much worse there then what will? Though this might offer an excuse and an opportunity - by accident of course - to kill off a few boat people and other African refugees in search of a phoney nirvana in Europe where the streets are all paved with gold and you gotta believe it). The PM also wants to start bombing Syria and maybe parts of Iraq again "to protect democracy" (if that doesn't attract IS to England it's difficult to imagine what will!). The best way to protect democracy is with bombs. Everyone should know this and repeat it whenever possible.
But surely Cameron must be carrying out Obama's secret wishes? Surely he couldn't indulge in this amount of lunatic deranged cockiness without America's go ahead? Or is he just competing with Monsieur Hollande in a sabre rattling contest? And is all this massing of anti-terrorist forces in England's green, very wet and formerly pleasant land not also aimed at working class repression, just in case that class should finally get pissed off, given all the misery of austerity and the weakening economy, the massive reinforcement of the state against the class and it's well-being, and begin dragging itself to its feet again for a final assault. When this eventually starts to happen it will undoubtedly be presented by our current rulers as an act of terrorism and treated accordingly. The bourgeoisie, that class most soaked in blood, are ready and waiting.
Meanwhile, in the same news bulletin, Obama was shown dancing an African ethnic dance not very elegantly in Kenya, his fatherland you know. He has tried not altogether successfully to convert Kenya's rulers to the delights of homosexuality, but they remain dogmatically straight. It's god's law don't forget.
Gay liberation is turning out to be about the only reform the ruling class has on offer today. Well at least it's cheap! Better than trying to reform Health Care which capital can no longer afford. After all Health Care was only intended as a temporary sop to those who survived the Second World War in the developed economies. Why would anyone think that it could go on for ever, or be free for ever? It's the same with education. Everything costs money. And if you want to change that then you'll have to get rid of capitalism...
