Lib-Lab-Con Justification for Afghanistan War is “Rubbish” Says Former UK Counterterrorism Chief
The former head of Britain’s counterterrorism unit and current United Nations Coordinator of the Al-Qaeda and Taliban Monitoring Team, echoed BNP policy when he dismissed as “rubbish” the Lib-Lab-Con argument that British military intervention in Afghanistan prevents terrorism.
New York-based Richard Barrett, who also worked for the British Security Service, the Foreign Office and was head of counterterrorism for the Secret Intelligence Service, made the startling comment in an interview with the Financial Times.
According to that paper, Mr Barrett said the argument used by Labour, Tory and Lib Dems that British involvement in Afghanistan would reduce terrorism in Britain was wrong and that it would actually increase it.
“That’s complete rubbish. I’ve never heard such nonsense,” Mr Barrett was quoted as saying.
He warned that the presence of foreign troops would actually inflame anti-western sentiment among Muslims in Britain.
“I’m quite sure if there were no foreign troops in Afghanistan there’d be less agitation in Leeds, or wherever, about Pakistanis extremely upset, or suspicious about what western intentions are in Afghanistan and Pakistan,” Mr Barrett said.
The British National Party is the only political party which opposed continued British involvement in that conflict and pointed out the link between it and the spread of Islamism in this country.
The obvious link between increased Islamist agitation in Britain and military intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan has been totally ignored by all of the Westminster parties.
The BNP has long maintained that the cause of terrorism in Britain is twofold: mass Third World immigration and Britain’s biased foreign policy.
Mass immigration has created a large pool of Muslims in Britain from which the Islamists — who have been waging war against the infidel khufars of Europe for over 1,300 years — can actively recruit.
Britain’s biased foreign policy has given these Islamists, who are already not short of hatred for all things Western, a gift horse with which they can justify attacks inside Britain.
Mr Barrett’s comments completely underpin the BNP’s policies for ending the terrorism threat: the end of mass immigration, the return to policies which ensure that hostile immigrants are returned to their country of origin and the end of military adventures in foreign countries which serve to further incite the world against us.
Recommended reading: Jihad: Islam’s 1,300 Year War on Western Civilisation. By Arthur Kemp. For centuries, violent Muslims have been trying to capture Europe for Islam. Sweeping out from its origin in Saudi Arabia, Islam has expanded through violent conquest into North Africa, the Middle and Near East, and very nearly into Europe itself, attacking through Spain, Italy, and the Balkans. Each time, the Islamic hordes were turned back by a united European military effort.
Today, the Islamic invasion is not being carried out with sieges, scimitars, or cannon, but rather by immigration, birth rates, and demographics. Given current trends, Europe is set to be overrun before the end of this century.
This book puts the current crisis into historical perspective, showing that instead of being a "religion of peace," violent Islam has, in fact, been waging war on all its self-appointed opponents since its inception.
Finally, this book dares to say what must be done if Europe is to avoid succumbing to the new invasion. The choice is hard, but is one which will determine whether Western civilisation lives or dies.
