Britain’s Cameron’s Libya war, parody song

This 20 September parody music video from Britain about the 2011 war on Libya is called SnoutKast – “Lib Ya!”

The song is a parody of the song by OutKastHey Ya!

The image in this video depicts British former Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron and the dead pig Mr Cameron is said by a fellow Conservative to have had sexual intercourse with as an initiation ritual of an élite student society.

The name Snoutkast in the parody title refers to that dead pig‘s snout.

The lyrics are:

Great Britain don’t mess around when there’s a mad dictator making crazy threats
Let’s go in all guns blazing with the Royal Navy and the RAF
Might leave a power vacuum but I’ve no time for coherent strategy
Just bomb them to the stone age and with luck you should be home in time for tea

Lib ya!

I think I get it, yeah I think I get it – the rebels took Benghazi and Gaddafi will kill them all
We get together with France and America, and bomb the crap out of ‘em so his regime will fall
They say we’ve made erroneous assumptions, that airstrikes, that airstrikes, that airstrikes
That airstrikes aren’t in our interests
So why oh why oh why oh why oh why oh are we still in denial when we say it’s not about the gold dinar?

Lib ya!
(Don’t wanna meet Gaddafi, just wanna take Benghazi)
Lib ya!
(Don’t wanna meet Muammar, just following Obama)
I’m not being honest

Alright now, chaps (yeah!)
What’s crueller than being ruled? (ISIS!)
I can’t hear you! I said what’s crueller than being ruled? (ISIS!)
Shiite, shiite, shiite, shiite, shiite
Now, okay, shiites – you gotta join up with the Iraqi forces and go fight those militant extremist groups!
I wanna see you all on your baddest behaviour! We’ll lend you some weapons, it’s like a favour
Here we go! Alright, now…

Fucked it, fucked it, fucked it, fucked it, fucked it like we did in Iraq
Fucked it, fucked it, fucked it, fucked it like I did with that…oink!

The decision of a British parliamentary foreign affairs committee to apportion responsibility for the destruction or Libya and its transformation from a functioning into a failed state to former British prime minister David Cameron further confirms the verdict reached by Irish revolutionary leader James Connolly over a century ago when it comes to the British ruling class. “Their crimes,” Connolly said, “would shame all the devils in hell”: here.

British ex-Prime Minister Cameron and dead pig, parody song

This 19 September 2016 satiric music video from Britain is called UB4Cameron – “Dead Dead Swine”.

The song is a parody of the song “Red red wine” by British band UB40.

The lyrics are:

Dead, dead swine
Only the head
I can’t forget how I seeded that sow

Dead, dead swine
It’s like the EU
I made a right cock-up
And there’s a photo
Apparently there’s a photo

At the time, I was in my prime
And I don’t mean Minister
I was young and full of spunk
And things turned quite sinister

Dead, dead swine
I had no choice
Initiation ritual
They stood to applaud my pork sword

I was desperate to join
Their exclusive dining club
So I placed it on my groin
And gave it a damn good scrub

Dead, dead swine
Did what I had to do
So they’d let me into
Their merry band
I thought of England

‘Sh*t Show’: Obama blames Cameron & Sarkozy for ‘mess’ in post-Gaddafi Libya

11 mrt. 2016

US President Barack Obama has blamed UK Prime Minister David Cameron and other European leaders for the current chaos in Libya, saying he had ‘more faith’ in them being invested in the follow-up, given Libya’s proximity.

MPs condemn Cameron for ‘opportunistic’ Libya assault

Wednesday 14th September 2016

A SCATHING report by MPs published today slams David Cameron’s “opportunist” and “inadequate” plan to launch a bombing campaign in Libya.

The former prime minister turned the Nato-backed intervention of 2011, which was supposedly to protect civilians, into an “opportunist policy of regime change” based on inadequate intelligence and failed to develop a “coherent Libya strategy,” the foreign affairs committee said.

Its inquiry found the government based its decision on “erroneous assumptions,” failing to properly analysis of the nature of the revolt against former dictator Colonel Muammar Gadaffi or how extremists would try to benefit from it.

The UK’s actions in Libya were part of an ill-conceived intervention, the results of which are still playing out today,” said committee chairman Crispin Blunt.

Libya is currently plagued by a civil war among two governments both claiming responsibility over the country and its natural resources, a situation which is allowing armed fanatics such as Islamic State (Isis) to gain ground.

Stop the War Coalition convener Lindsey German said: “The foreign affairs committee has underlined what those of us in the anti-war movement argued five years ago: this was a war for regime change, not to protect civilians.”

The committee’s findings reflect experts’ opinions on the legality of the intervention.

Research by the University of Oslo found that while operations to protect civilians were authoritised by a UN resolution, those aiming to overthrow Gadaffi and support rebels constituted “an illegal use of force” which “may have undermined the credibility of the responsibility to protect in future humanitarian crises.”

British Conservative Cameron wants resignation of Labourite Corbyn

David Cameron's head, cartoon

From British daily The Independent today:

David Cameron tells Jeremy Corbyn to resign as Labour leader ‘for heaven’s sake’

Many religious (and not so religious) people will say that Cameron should have left Heaven out of his party politics.

What is new about this? Not much really.

Any Conservative Prime Minister would always like it if the Labour opposition leader would go away, and the Labour party would be in trouble.

More yet … Cameron is not any Conservative Prime Minister. He has announced his resignation and is now politically a walking dead man.

His Conservative party is in chaos, while in its smoke-filled backrooms there is fighting about who will be the next Tory leader.

It is understandable that David Cameron would like Labour to be in the same chaos as his own party, after the European Union membership referendum which he lost, in spite of, or maybe because of, his expensive taxpayer-paid propaganda of there supposedly there not being anything wrong with the European Union and that the lights would go out and that there would be devastating lethal volcanic eruptions of all mountains, hills and molehills in Britain if the electorate would vote for Brexit.

Jeremy Corbyn, though advocating a Remain vote, did not claim the European Union was perfect and did not participate with Cameron in ‘project fear‘ propaganda.

So, one might compare Cameron’s call on Corbyn to resign to the desperate shriek of a man who cannot swim and is about to drown, to his opponent standing on the bank to jump into the water and drown as well.

Except that Cameron has a Tory fifth column inside the Parliamentary Labour Party: the Blairite right-wing MPs who with Cameron want to drown Corbyn, and with him Labour party democracy, the verdict of Labour members who massively elected Corbyn, and the hopes of defeating the Conservatives in a general election.

UK forces fighting in Syria ‘illegal’ – warns Stop the War

UK Special Forces have been fighting on the frontline in Syria despite explicit assurances to parliament from Cameron that there would be ‘no UK boots on the ground’.

Such a move ‘is illegal unless sanctioned by parliament,’ Stop the War Coalition warned yesterday. According to The Times British special forces based in Jordan frequently cross into Syria to assist the so-called ‘New Syrian Army’, which has been holding out in the southeastern village of al-Tanf.

The Ministry of Defence said: ‘We may or may not have special forces in Syria. For reasons of security we cannot comment on any operation involving special forces.’

Head of the Stop the War Coalition, Lindsey German, told News Line: ‘Reports of British troops fighting in Syria highlight once again the contempt for democracy shown by those who support successive wars.

‘Any such deployment is illegal unless sanctioned by parliament. It is unfortunately increasingly typical of troop deployment which is secretive and avoids any democratic scrutiny. As we await the Chilcot report, it is a travesty of the democratic process to keep involving British troops in Syria undeclared.’

In December 2015, parliament approved a motion moved by Tory PM Cameron which called for the UK to join in the US led bombing campaign in Syria. The motion explicitly stated: ‘. . . . the government will not deploy UK troops in ground combat operations.’

During the debate, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn warned: ‘The logic of an extended air campaign is, in fact, towards mission creep and western boots on the ground. Whatever the Prime Minister may say now about keeping British combat troops out of the way, that is a real possibility.’

During that debate Ian Paisley (North Antrim) (DUP) asked: ‘If it becomes necessary at a later date to deploy ground troops, will he guarantee that he will come back to this House to seek approval for that?’

Cameron replied: ‘This is something not only that I do not want to do, but that I think would be a mistake if we did it. The argument was made to us by the Iraqi government that the presence of western ground troops can be a radicalising force and can be counterproductive, and that is our view.’
