A Muppet

Todays face of the day is a Muppet called Brian Rudman.

He thinks that the best way to deal with terrorism is to let other countries deal with it because it is not our problem it is their problem.

I am glad I didn’t go to school with Brian. I can just imagine it. I rush in to break up a fight between the school bullies and the little new kid. Pauline and Kevin join me and even though none of us are particularly big or strong we know that together we can stop the poor kid from getting his head kicked in. ‘

“Hey Brian,” we call out, we need your help, ” Martin is getting a pounding.”

Brian replies, ” You guys are stupid. It is not your problem. You will just give the bullies a reason to start attacking you. I’m off to hide in the girl’s toilets.”



A selection of quotes from his article are below:

For New Zealand at least, we should consider a much simpler alternative. Refuse to create the circumstances in which such an outrage can fester. Don’t send our troops to Iraq.

So every time a terrorist does an act of terror it must be because of something the countries government has done because terrorists are such reasonable people that they only target infidels because they have been ‘ offended ‘ by them. All we have to do to stop terrorists is to stop fighting them. It is really that simple according to Rudman.

The Martin Place siege is a clear signal to desist. Australian Prime Minister Mr Abbott couldn’t resist the urge to go to war and the mayhem in Sydney’s Lindt Chocolat Cafe was a direct consequence. It pushed a mentally unstable man over the edge.

So going to war against terrorists pushed a mentally unstable man over the edge so therefore it is the governments fault that two innocent hostages were killed, got it. Thanks for clearing that up Rudman.

Refusing to report for duty alongside the United States, Australia and Britain in the Iraqi hellhole is not surrendering to the terrorists. It’s common sense.

Yes, much better to let other people fight and die to protect the Iraqi people. It is not surrender, it is just cowardice self preservation.

Our leaders have been justifying the Iraqi adventure by arguing terrorism is global and to be safe we have to root it out in its Middle Eastern birthplace. But it’s only global in the sense that if outsiders fly in and poke sticks in the hornets’ nest, the terrorists can sting back as far away as Sydney and, perhaps, Auckland or Wellington.

So if we don’t poke the hornets nest we won’t get stung because hornets are predictable insects who only attack if provoked. Destroying the hornets nest so no one gets stung, well that is just plain silly talk. It is their hornets nest and best we leave them mourning their children who have been stung to death by them.Why should we want to protect their children? Only our children are important after all.

The time is long gone when we can make up the numbers in other people’s wars from Gallipoli to Vietnam, then scurry home knowing no one would be following us to this remote little sanctuary in the Pacific Ocean. In these days of instant communications and cheap transport, if you pick a fight with someone, there’s a good chance they, or one of their followers, may hit back.

Yes, best we never take a moral position on anything for fear of push back. Let’s live our lives cowering in the girl’s toilets in the hope that the bullies will focus on more obvious targets and pass us by. Courage is for suckers.
