I remember 2 things from my visits to the States – hospitality and kindness, and i ‘d bet the three of you are enjoying the same. Cheers for posting all the links and news – great to see. (ok, 3 things: hospitality, kindness and proper measures of whiskey! )
Watching these videos made me remember why I wanted to join you there at the VFP Conference. Powerful material – thanks for the inspiration.
Thanks Ben for the best rendering yet on why you decided to leave.
There is much yet to be done to end the war-making madness.
After a long days work this was nice to watch… is it me, or does Ross Altman look Tom Baker?
Kenny Williams VFP UK
Fantastic! Three great ambassadors for VFP (UK). Jim, you are an inspiration, Ben, as succinct and heartfelt as ever and Karl… you were truly a star mate. You spoke from your soul and we can all see how hard that must have been for you, every word. You did yourself very proud!
Interesting and informative talks lads! Iraq was most certainly a turning point for me in re-assessing the role of the UK military (and our European partners) and our unswerving commitment to the ultra right wing neocons that stole power in the 2000 `election` to implement their long held plan for US hegemony (see the Project for a New American Century) and the fabricated justifications for dismantling the Baathist (previously allied) regime in Iraq. I think it was Saddam`s decision to demand Euros for oil after 10 years of damaging sanctions and trade embargoes that sealed his fate in a similar fashion to Qaddafi`s ill fat6ed decree to unify Africa economically and demand gold for oil tariffs. Any one who jeopardizes the US petro dollar is as good as dead just as the world economy would be too, or at least as it will eventually be anyway in the near future! As for the Middle East, Central Asia, North Africa, South America and other areas of geopolitical interest to energy dependent industrialized world, well, they will cease to be of any real relevance to us when those finite resources come to a sticky end! However, I`m sure we`ll all find other things to depend upon and then fight over too!
Ben Griffin was not a Para of SF Solider…..he was in the RAF with me and served as a steward. He was thrown out of the RAF for failing his annual RAF fitness test!
