I hope the aliens are real. (God, I f**king hope they are!)
"I strongly recommend you find someone who has just returned from one of the UKs current war zones, hell find anyone currently wearing the uniform and tell them to their face they are "impotent", I'd love to see their response."
Well, they're not maybe not impotent but they probably fall into one of two categories:
1, Sent to fight in a war based on lies (no WMD in Iraq and the US/UK knew it due to the life expectancy on the chemical weapons WE sold them)
2, Sent to fight in a war based on rumour (Usama was last known to be in Iraq MONTHS before 11th September 2001 and there is STILL NO PROOF that Afghanistan had anything to do with it).
Basically this makes both our current wars complete shams. They're most likely based on oil and everyone knows it - probably including the Merseyside Aliens!
Yes, it's a risky job getting shot at but it seems to be even riskier pointing out the lies that resulted in our forces being sent to fight in the first place. "How f**king dare you say that" would be a pretty typical reaction...
Our "defence" forces seem to spend a lot of time fighting other people's wars in other countries but no-one has tried to invade the UK or any of our protectorates for over 25 years so why do we spend so much money on weapons and wars? It can't be for "defence"! The fighting isn't even on our own continent and we live on the extreme edge, as far away as you can get.
Personally, I hope the aliens are real and reveal themselves as soon as possible. Then humanity can forget about our petty silly squabbles...
Those very same silly squabbles are probably putting the aliens off! They may think we're aggressive militaristic idiots and who would blame them?
