Imperialism Causes Terrorism – Paris Attacks 13.11.15

It is interesting to see that with the tragic loss of the Russian Airliner recently (with the death of all on board), the Western European response was one of racism and disdain for Russia and the Russian victims. This callous response must be added to the continuous ignoring of deaths in Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, the Ukraine and elsewhere in the world, and the overt support the Western Europeans powers are currently granting to far-right political and religiously inspired regimes such as the neo-Nazis in the Ukraine, the Zionists in Israel and the Islamo-fascists in Saudi Arabia. The rhetoric from modern Germany in the European Union is particularly disturbing, as its call for resistance against foreign influence to preserve European values, and pronouncements by the German leader Angela Merkel that multiculturalism has ‘failed’, all sound disturbingly similar to the rhetoric of Nazi Germany in the 1930’s.

Berry Pomeroy Castle – South Devon – 4.8.15

After the Norman victory of 1066 CE in Britain, the warriors of the indigenous British kept-up a fierce resistance to the Norman presence for decades. The Normans spread-out across the land, and built very strong fortified houses and castles. These structures allowed the Norman occupiers to live in relative safety against the continuous threat of British attack. This castle building skill marked a significant evolution in the building of militarised structures in Britain, and there was very little the indigenous British warriors could do against the high and smooth stone walls, deep water-filled moats, and steep inclines.
