Phillip Hammond is one dangerous SOB

For a Conservative Party member with a private-sector career studded with solid accomplishments, he sure is susceptible to the toxic effects of the first sip of Kool-Aid:

Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond, who met Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran on Monday, said the two countries shared common ground despite a "deep legacy of distrust."
He said they agreed on the need to defeat the Islamic State group, and to stop opium from Afghanistan reaching Europe.
Hammond told the BBC that "Iran is too large a player, too important a player in this region, to simply leave in isolation."

Yes, indeed! That's the ticket! Sign them up as an ally!

Get a clue, dumbass. You may have met the Ayatollah in person, but apparently you've missed coverage of his many pronouncements via Twitter or at numerous death-to-America-and-Israel rallies. You may not be aware of Iran's stockpile of long-range missiles, or its ongoing support for Hamas, Hezbollah and the Houthis.

Are you on board with this s---, Prime Minister Cameron?


  1. Gee, how long have we been trying to stop the flow of opium from Afghanistan? Not that long really.

    "Opium production in Afghanistan has been on the rise since U.S. occupation started in 2001.Based on UNODC data, opium poppy cultivation was more in each of the growing seasons in the periods between 2004 and 2007 than in any one year during Taliban rule. Also, more land is now used for opium in Afghanistan than for coca cultivation in Latin America. In 2007, 92% of the non-pharmaceutical-grade opiates on the world market originated in Afghanistan."

  2. Stopping the flow of Afghan opium would be nice, but the point of this post is that Hammond is legitimizing Iran as a major power on the world stage when it's actual pariah status needs to be reinforced.
