An Englishman Wants To Know If Armageddon Could Follow Syria Attack

by Neil Bamforth

Syria is a country full of Muslim Arabs knocking ten bells out of each other. The countries leader – Assad – is clearly responsible for chemical weapons being used. This is a breach of international law. The United Nations are supposed to act when international law is broken regarding military conflicts. The Russians are backing Assad. The UN is clearly helpless.

That is where we are.

Now. Russia is a nuclear power run by a particularly unpleasant chap, Vladimir Putin.

The USA is currently being ruled over by a man-child with narcissistic tendencies who Tweets like an angry teenager.

The USA is also a nuclear power.

Trump is threatening to fire missiles at Syria. Putin is threatening to attack the source of said missiles. In other words, the US Navy ships from which the missiles would come.

This ridiculous situation could very easily get out of hand up to the worst case scenario of nuclear war.

Last week – or, possibly, even yesterday this would have been unthinkable but now?

Could it happen? Really? Could it?

Suddenly it is terrifyingly easy to say “I don’t know”

The unthinkable is becoming thinkable.

We have a narcissistic man-child and an evil despot facing off over a country in the Middle East and, ultimately, we could all perish under a mushroom cloud as a result.

On a more cheerful note, I live near Heathrow Airport which is, I believe, a place that would be ‘taken out’ at the start of Armaggedon so, I wouldn’t know much about it prior to incineration.

My limited knowledge of such things suggests that all that would be left is my shadow – along with the shadow of a bottle of beer no doubt.

Rob Grant and Doug Naylor wrote the following in their original Red Dwarf comedy science fiction book.

I paraphrase as I can’t seem to find the book but I more or less remember it.

‘Rimmer looked around at what sounded like a nuclear wind hurtling towards him. It was, in fact, a nuclear wind hurtling towards him. Then he died. Then everyone died’

Some say that, up to a point, science fiction can come true.

What a world if a comedy SF book comes true eh?

Damn, all of this over Trump running his mouth again, Neil you are a smart one you are but I think that, unless I am wrong of course, and I am never wrong even when Mike tells me I am wrong, we are at best going to shoot a bunch of missiles at some air bases sans planes and hope to hit some chemical weapons. At that point Trumpster will be tweeting “How Great I Am”. even though all we will do is mess up some runways. According to a couple of people it is a waste of time and money if we don’t join the Brits and the French and invade the place, That my friend may lead us to world war with Russia and Iran. North Korea will put its peace plan on hold to see who wins so it gets on the right side. Hopefully it stays nuke free.

Well I’ma geddon tired of end of the world scenarios. It’s still here after billions of years. And after all this time nature hasn’t attempted to produce a species that survives on it’s intelligence instead of environmental compatibility. It’s failing so miserably she won’t likely try it again. Let the sky fall and take us all with it. We’re simply not fit to survive what with our inborn love of tyrants, madmen and “Conservatives”

Couple of my crazier gooper neighbors have told me they are looking into shelters at their homes because the sky is falling, the sky is falling. Since I am either going by way of earthquake where we sit on the fault, or armageddon due to being in the way of a nuclear blast if ww3 is caused by dolt45 and San Francisco gets hit, I say start over brand new, with just a few people. IMO, as long as Channing Tatum, Chris Hemsworth and his brothers are saved all will be okay, maybe Halle Berry also 🙂

I had a stalker once. Evil cow she was too. Burned down me hedges and tried to run over the cat. I had to put her down. Stalker, not the cat. I loved the cat.

AYUP. Stalkers are no fun at all are they? I have had a couple of them, I had to call the police about they were so scary. How they managed to get past my security gate still astounds me.

How do we know M. Bates is of the female persuasion? And if she is, why would she fancy our Neil? He’s a smart bloke but with all that beer he drinks I’d wager a fiver he’s a fat bloke. Who wants to wager me?

Not me on the betting front. He already said he’s a little paunchy around the middle. I am going by the replies to neil myself and making the assumption because we all know, Neil has said it, he’s not into the man love and MBates is a thirsty bitch for Neil’s attention. You know Shirley, “fat blokes” need and deserve love too, just not from the likes of a bunny boiler like Mbates. I think it’s too much when people go stalker on you 🙂

Nope, nope all the nopes from the land of nope to this Neil and you know I love ya, ya big lug. MBates is the type of person that sniffs their own farts and wonders where the noise and smell came from, they are just that clueless. I wouldn’t trust them to aim when sitting on the toilet, never mind come up with a suggestion who should be running what and where they should be running it.

dolt45 is walking back his comments from yesterday. He apparently did not say what he in fact said. We are all living this nightmare together neil.

Can you believe it Jess? Yesterday he was all war talk and today he’s not so much. I expect it was the criticism he’s hearing about telegraphing his intentions after he said a hundred times during his campaign he wouldn’t do. We’ll wake up one morning and discover the idiot has bombed Syria with no regard to consequences.

I think Vlad had a word in his ear about loans coming due and tapes being released and he HAD to walk it back. Maybe they’ll do what they did last time, clear out an airfield and he can bomb that as an appetizer for his base.
