Russia recognises two new nations .

I am pleased to report that Russia has recognised the sovereignty of South Ossetia and Abkhazia ; predictably the Americans have decried this action . I do not recollect them objecting when the Serbian province of Kosovo illegally declared it's independence ; the sheer hypocrisy of the United States is breathtaking . Accordingly I shall recognise them too .


Be it known that The Doc Spot recognises the independence of South

Ossetia and Abkhazia as sovereign nations .

Doc Jr.--- An update .

The latest news in the family is that Doc Jr. is preparing to return to the U.S. following his economic migration ( temporarily ) to the U.K. , his departure , in about a moths time , will be bitter/sweet . I will once more be my own master and be able to do as I wish , but I suppose that I will miss his acerbic wit ; I commented that a prophet is without honour in his own land , and bemoaned a general lack of respect , to which the response was that children are there to " take the mickey " out of their parents . I suppose that this is the modern equivalent of the slave whose job it was to whisper "Thou art mortal" to their master .
Still the bright side of this is that I get to visit Chicago on a "free" holiday and annoy him .

The E.U.s biased sense of justice .

I felt that I had to repost this article by Tapestry at The Tap blog , whilest not wishing to be an apologist for the terrible acts committed during the breakup of Yugoslavia , it was not only the Serbs who committed war crimes .

Was Mladic's Father Murdered At Srebrenica?

Given all the efforts being made by the EU to force the Serbs to hand over war criminals such as Karadzic and Mladic, the world could be forgiven for imagining that the Serbs were the only side to commit war crimes in the Balkans. What is being overlooked, however is the other side of the story. There were equally barbaric acts committed by Albanians, Croats and others, but these for some reason have been going unpunished at the Hague Tribunals, with witnesses intimidated or mysteriously dying or disappearing.

There can be no justification for the kinds of acts that were carried out at Srebrenica in the Balkan Wars by Mladic, where thousands of Moslem men and boys were rounded up by The Serbs and machine gunned to death in the football stadium. As far as the world's media were concerned, these acts were committed by Serbs as if they had come from nowhere.

But if you try to understand why a man like Mladic could find committing such acts to be justifiable to his own conscience, you could ask a little more about his background and life's experiences. It turns out that in WW2 his father fought as a partisan and, when he was captured, that he was tortured and murdered by the Ustase.

The NAZI-supporting Croatians murdered millions of Serbs, gypsies and Jews during the war, and yet unlike the Serbs who are being hunted and condemned as criminals for relatively lesser acts of imitation, the Croatians and Albanian murderers have been allowed to live and work unchallenged, many treated to this day as national heroes.

Take Franceticu (pictured) who commanded The Black Legion. There has been a memorial plinth saluting him as a hero on public display in Croatia up to the present day, and yet he was responsible for the murder of tens of thousands of Serbs. The Black Legion operated out of Srebrenica in Bosnia. Is it possible that Mladic knew that his father was murdered there, and he saw his actions in Srebrenica as justified revenge for the loss of his own father?

As people weigh the terrible acts of war committed by Caucasian and Balkan nations upon each other, and see that those from one side are always the 'baddies' it is worth remembering that were it not for the Russians and the Serbs, Western Europe would not have regained its freedom from the Nazis. While condemning modern Russian and Serbian brutality, it is worth trying to see things from a more objective viewpoint than is achievable if you take the story only as presented by the world's media. In war there is often little justice, and it is not sensible to put ascribing guilt for the past in front of achieving peace for the future.

The Serbs are asking that the world negotiates with them about the loss of Kosovo. They are being refused the privilege of being treated as the sovereign nation, and they are being portrayed as the wrongdoers by the world's media at every turn.

If Western Europe were to be thinking about its future role in the world and seeking its own security, it would not be so blatantly humiliating a key ally of Russia. Our own future might depend of achieving a more objective and less moralistic posture towards the Balkans and to Russia, or we too might be forced to relive the horrors of the past.

UPDATE - background to the hunt for Mladic HERE. His father was from Bosnia and was murdered by Croatian Nazis when he was 2 years old.

Do we see the war criminals from the other factions in the war being prosicuted , NO only the Serbs , such is E.U. justice .

Medical ethics ; a thing of the past ?

An interesting post , written by Dr. De'ath and published on The Devil's Kitchen , it is self explanatory and is rather sad . I thought that medics and academics were above such infantile behaviour , I guess that they are not .

Freedom of expression or lack of it

A junior doctor has recently been suspended from work following an astonishing chain of events, amazingly this happened in the UK and not in China, I shall briefly outline the story below which demonstrates the dangers involved with vocally expressing one's anger at Comrade Brown et al's gross incompetence:

Doctors.net.uk (DNUK) is a website that doctors use for email and forum banter; Carol Black, a medico political stooge with umpteen committee positions, had recently been reelected unopposed into her position as chair of the Academy of the Medical Royal Colleges.

Given that the catastrophic failings of various recent reforms of medical training had resulted in so much suffering for so many junior doctors and their families, most doctors are not best pleased that no one has yet been held to account for these negligent reforms and that the same muppets are still manning the ship.

One doctor happened to express his dissatisfaction with events by posting some rather colourful comments concerning Carol Black's re-election. This doctor lives and works in Scotland, but strangely a key figure behind the government's reforms, a lady called Prof Elisabeth Paice, happened to be reading his words on this private DNUK forum and she reported these comments directly to one of her chums in the Highland Deanery. The doctor was then immediately suspended despite the fact that the comments were withdrawn from the forum rather rapidly.

The abuse of power that has occurred here seems to typify the way in which the filth who rule us 'govern' this country. Pulse has spoken to Prof Paice who tried to defend her position by claiming that she felt compelled to complain directly to this doctor's Dean due to the ‘excrementous and scatological’ language used. Personally I don't see why the withdrawal of the comment and a quick personal apology should not suffice.

Chickens come home to roost .

In 1990 South Ossetia declared its independance from Georgia , feeeling that they were ethnicly nearer to being Russian than Georgian , an uneasy "peace" with frequent clashes has ensued since . Today Georgia , in the middle of a Georgian led ceasefire , invaded South Ossetia ( shades of Pearl Harbour ) and tried to take contrl of the country . Georgia claims that it is only re-uniting a part of its territory , a stance backed by both the U.S. and the E.U. ; oh wait ! did not those two states say that Serbia could not regain its sovereign territory , Kosova , and did they not send troops in to defend Kosovo .
In response to this invasion , Russia sent in troops to protect its peacekeepers and its citizens , a most proper reaction in my view ; the Great Hypocrites , the Yanks and EU , back Georgia and tell Russia to withdraw its troops . This is reported on the BBC news and Sky news ; the corrupt BBC bias its reporting with 90% of the interviews being pro-Georgian and referring to the South Ossetians as rebels , such balanced reporting . Sky news on the other hand gave a balanced view and discussed the issues from both sides , and also made the comparison with Kosovo , it was not a propaganda site for the lies of the Georgian President . I never thought that I would praise Sky news , but well done .
It is reported that George Bush spoke to Vladimir Putin while they are together in China , I hope that Putin kicks the Georgian butt and the Yanks too , if they get in the way .

A Proposed Constitutional Amendment
Background and justification to Amendment 28

Whereas Religion is defined as an institution dedicated to improving social conscience and promoting individual and societal spiritual growth in a way that is harmless to others not participating in or practicing the same;

Whereas the United States of America was founded on the ideals of individual rights, including the individual right to practice one’s religion of choice, or no religion, and that there would be no compulsion of religion, nor state sanctioned religion, nor a “religious test” for participation in the body politic;

Whereas Islam includes a complete political and social structure, encompassed by its religious law, Sharia, that supersedes any civil law and that Islam mandates that no secular or democratic institutions are to be superior to Islamic law;

Whereas Islam preaches that it and it alone is the true religion and that Islam will dominate the world and supplant all other religions and democratic institutions;

Whereas Saudi Arabia, the spiritual home of Islam does not permit the practice of any other religion on its soil and even “moderate” Muslims states such as Turkey and Malaysia actively suppress other religions;

Whereas Islam includes as its basic tenet the spread of the faith by any and all means necessary, including violent conquest of non-believers, and demands of its followers that they implement violent jihad (holy war) against those un-willing to convert or submit to Islam, including by deception and subversion of existing institutions;

Whereas on 9/11/2001 19 Muslim hijackers acting in the name of Islam killed 3,000 Americans, and numerous other acts of terrorism have been directed at the American people around the world;

Whereas representatives of Islam around the world including Osama Bin Laden (architect of 9/11), the government of Iran including Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, HAMAS, Hezbollah, and other Islamic groups have declared jihad (war) on America, and regularly declare that America should cease to exist;

Whereas there is no organized Islamic opposition to violent proponents of Islam;

Therefore: Islam is not a religion, but a political ideology more akin to Fascism and totally in opposition to the ideals of freedom as described in the United States Constitution, especially the Bill of Rights.

Be it resolved that the following Amendment to the Constitution be adopted:

Article I

The social/political/ideological system known around the world as Islam is not recognized in the United States as a religion.

The practice of Islam is therefore not protected under the 1st Amendment as to freedom of religion and speech.

Article II

As representatives of Islam around the world have declared war, and committed acts of war, against the United States and its democratic allies around the world, Islam is hereby declared an enemy of the United States and its practice within the United States is now prohibited.

Article III

Immediately upon passage of this Amendment all Mosques, schools and Muslim places of worship and religious training are to be closed, converted to other uses, or destroyed. Proceeds from sales of such properties may be distributed to congregations of said places but full disclosure of all proceeds shall be made to an appropriate agency as determined by Congress. No compensation is to be offered by Federal or State agencies for losses on such properties however Federal funding is to be available for the demolishing of said structures if other disposition cannot be made.

The preaching of Islam in Mosques, Schools, and other venues is prohibited. The subject of Islam may be taught in a post high school academic environment provided that instruction include discussion of Islam’s history of violence, conquest, and its ongoing war on democratic and other non-Islamic values.

The preaching or advocating of Islamic ideals of world domination, destruction of America and democratic institutions, jihad against Judaism, Christianity and other religions, and advocating the implementation of Sharia law shall in all cases be punishable by fines, imprisonment, deportation, and death as prescribed by Congress. Violent expressions of these and other Muslim goals, or the material support of those both in the United States and around the world who seek to advance these Islamic goals shall be punishable by death.

Muslims will be denied the opportunity to immigrate to the United States.

Article IV

Nothing in this amendment shall be construed as authorizing the discrimination against, of violence upon, nor repudiation of the individual rights of those Americans professing to be Muslim. The individual right of conscience is sacrosanct and the practice of Islam within the privacy of home and self is strictly protected to the extent that such individuals do not violate the prohibitions described in Article III.
