Just over at CLUB-SISSY and I see this:
“Pinochet’s long overdue collision with justice occurred on 16 October 1998, when he was arrested in London, where he had gone for medical treatment.*
A Spanish judge sought his extradition on charges of kidnapping a political leader from Argentina in 1976.
The case ultimately went to the House of Lords, who upheld the extradition order.
Pinochet was finally allowed home by the Home Secretary on medical grounds, but by then he had been detained for fifteen months.”
What an absolute fucking disgrace.
HE WAS OUR ALLY!!!
HE HELPED US OUT DURING THE FALKLANDS WAR!!!
He stuck his neck out to favour the Brits over a threatening neighbour.
This was the one place on earth other then Chile where he ought to have been safe.
I cannot tell you uneducated young idiots just what bad karma comes when you allow left-wingers out of pure personal spite and malignance to break ancient codes of understanding and asylum like this.
This one act or national betrayal and cowardice would be enough to to open up a veritable pandoras box of bad karma.
If we wish to die with mud in our mouths and blood in our eyes let us be unfaithful allies.
IF WE WANT TO DIE WITH MUD IN OUR MOUTHS AND BLOOD IN OUR EYES LET US CULTIVATE A REPUTATION FOR BEING UNFAITHFUL TO OUR ALLIES.
This is just a fucking disgrace.
And no wonder Britain is in a power of trouble right now.
Now by the way. Let me not be misunderstood. I don’t have a good angle on how bad or heroic this man was. And if a non-communist relative of a non-communist victim of his should have snuck into Santiago and shot the old man in the guts I wouldn’t know enough to say whether I should be a bit sad or jubilant. And I certainly would want people to administer the lowest punishment possible under the law if the perp. was not killed by security.
And though I’m more understanding of the former leftist lecturer Dr Kissingers plight then what Chris Hitchens is; nonetheless, something inside of me, would like half Kissingers estate to wind up compensating the Schneider family.
But this wrenching of the vortex of karma that the Brits allowed goes beyond all that.
Forgive them oh FATHER
For they knew not….
… what the fuck they were doing.
This is just terrible. It sends a signal out to bad guys everywhere that we are unreliable and unfaithful friends… and the upshot is also that we are piss-weak enemies.
You let your friends down and you will never need to bargain hard to find enemies in this world.
