Germany Threatens War


On his recent visit to meet with that nice chap William Hague in London the ‘Jerry’ Foreign Minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier adopted the language and style of his, with respect, rather more intelligent and charming predecessor Joachim von Ribbentrop.

The Kennedy Conspiracy (7)

Dallas 1963

A very happy New Year to all VT staff and readers. I hope you all had lots of mince pies and mulled wine, etc., over Christmas. In the case of our Australian readers, for “mulled wine” read “tinnies of XXXX” of course.

The Kennedy Conspiracy Part Six


Firstly, I hope everybody had a lovely Christmas. Some of the comments on last week’s article were a bit puzzling, with respect. I can see why some could mistakenly think I am anti-German, but anti-American?

The Kennedy Conspiracy (4)


This is kind of eating into the substantive article on the Kennedy assassination, but here goes. Thanks to JS for his/her comments on the DVD. Yes, there are other writers out there who have commented on the DVD. Before he was murdered, one was Christopher Story FRSA.

I hope that you all had a happy and pleasant Thanksgiving, ideally with your families. I am aware, having been invited into an American home for the holiday and shared a Thanksgiving meal with an American family, how symbolic a day it is for Americans.

Captain Phillips and Some Other Stuff


A couple of weeks back I promised a review of this fine movie, starring Tom Hanks, which I saw last week at our local Odeon, but firstly allow me to deal with some of the comments on last week’s article. I still cannot log on directly, for some odd technical reason, so I stopped posting comments some time ago.

Tea Party Plans Shutdown

This week’s article is a bit of a round-up – sorry to disappoint those who expect only a single theme for each week!

Well done to JS (was it not?) who referred to these three incidents of sabotage, each carried out of course by the DVD.

Somebody saw that one coming. It is now being said that Kenyan National Intelligence Service officers were telling family members not to go Nairobi’s Westgate Mall on the day of the attack.

No Syria this week! For the tiny number anxiously looking forward to my weekly article and disappointed it didn’t appear yesterday (!) I should explain that I try to write my article on Friday.

Passing Gas in Syria and Endless Israeli “False Flag” Attacks

Michael Shrimpton

In my opinion, no serious analyst of affairs in the Middle East takes the claim that the Assad government has used chemical weapons in Syria as accurate and true–which means that at least one of my colleagues here at Veterans Today is not a serious analyst of Middle East affairs.

The Woolwich Terrorist Attack (5)


I make no apology for staying with this topic. It’s not just to see what misspelling of ‘Woolwich’ the guys can come up with this time! The rest of the media have almost stopped talking about the attack, for PC reasons.

Arrivals and Departures

Sir Jonathan Evans

This has been a week of personnel change. The DVD asset Boris Berezovsky very sensibly decided to commit suicide (no offense intended), MI5 Chief Sir Jonathan Evans has announced he’s stepping down and David Miliband is quitting Britain.

The Falklands and Some Other Stuff

British Soldiers during the Falklands War

This week has seen one of the more monumental diplomatic gaffes of recent years. Argentina’s crass Foreign Minister Hector Timerman stated on a visit to London (of all places) that “The Falkland Islanders do not exist.”

Gun Control After Sandy Hook

A good friend in academe has sent me a copy of an excellent article by Professor Joyce Malcolm of the excellent Georgetown University Law School, published in the Wall Street Journal.

The Sandy Hook Shootings

Firstly may I extend my deepest condolences to the loved ones of the victims, to Governor Malloy and the people of Connecticut, and to the United States generally, over this appalling tragedy. The loss of young life is even more tragic as it was avoidable.

The Coup In Cairo

The Arab Spring is over. Perhaps we should now be talking about the Arab Fall, in more senses than one. I do not believe that Hillary Clinton knew about the coup in advance.

Shambles On The Strip


Not much to be thankful for in the Middle East, sadly. Like turkeys voting for Christmas the Israeli Government have let southern Israel in for further rocket bombardment from Gaza Strip, a lot less fun place than the Vegas Strip.

The Extradition Shambles


Apparently the Department of Justice were surprised when British Home Secretary Theresa May very properly refused to extradite the computer hacker Gary McKinnon. I don’t know why. The decision was clearly correct and Blind Freddy could see it coming.

2014 Is Only Two Years Away

A significant event occurred this week in Britain. There were significant events elsewhere of course, including in Danville Kentucky, where Vice-President Biden cheered up the troops at the cost of alienating independents with his rudeness and smirking.

It’s good to see the US media asking questions the tremulous British media dare not ask. Why did HRH Prince Harry’s police protection officers permit those photographs to be taken and who is covering their backs?

UK Cricket: The Pietersen Affair

Kevin Pietersen

For once I am in complete agreement with Piers Morgan. Straussy, Giles Clarke and Hugh Morris at ECB and the selectors have bungled this badly. Clarke and Morris need to resign for the sake of English cricket and Strauss should step down as captain.
