Why our soldiers deserve a proper military covenant

By Dark Politricks

Bad health has made it hard for me to keep my own blog posts up to date so I haven’t been able to write as much as I would like on this site lately but hopefully the news articles that have been posted have provided you all with great #altnews from all perspectives. I would also urge you all to check out the great site as it will give you tips on how you help keep alternative news alive without denting your own pockets.

The major point I wanted to comment on earlier in the week but couldn’t do was the the Tory / Lib Dem plan to enshrine the Military Covenant into law.

Whilst I am totally against the current wars in Iraq, Libya and Afghanistan, and even though I detest how the phony war on terror has been used as a pretext to destroy our civil rights at home and install a high tech surveillance state, I totally support our troops in the military.

This isn’t because I live in a military town with barracks all around me or because my Uncle served in the RAF. I have vigorous debates with family members over our defence industry that makes billions by selling weapons to Middle Eastern countries which we know will be used for “crowd control” to kill protesters all over the place.

I believe in a strong defense of our realm but what we have at the moment is not a defence industry but one of attack.

Every single Tomahawk missile that is shot from a Typhoon at a Libyan tank or one of Gaddafi’s bases is £400k of cuts to our libraries, schools, fire brigades and hospitals we wouldn’t have to make.

Our foreign policy is not only hypocritical and made up on the fly it is making us less safe at home.

Yes whilst we become the targets of disgruntled Muslim extremists, fat cats at BAE bung millions to Saudi Princes and get fraud probes into their bribery dropped so that they can make millions from the blood of others.

A lot of people in the anti-war movement cannot detach support for the troops from support of western foreign policy. They see every persons choice of job as an indicator of their moral compass and therefore put soldiers firmly in the camp of evil doer because of their job.

Whilst this argument has some merit I disagree and happily admit I don’t feel the same way I do about our military as I do the corrupt old boys network that our police force basically is. I have unfortunately had plenty of first hand experience of how our police destroys peoples lives and is basically a corrupt and immoral institution that is used as government muscle.

Whereas our Police force is full of hypocrites who were bullied at school and joined the force purely looking to get their own back on society our armed forces are full of people who rightly or wrongly believe they are serving our country and in most cases have no idea who or what they are fighting for and joined up purely for an escape route from their northern wasteland home town.

Many members of our police force are hated by the vast majority of the public due to their preference for chasing drivers because they can keep the profits from the fines and if they are not corrupt in the common sense they have no problem ruining peoples lives by convicting them of crimes they happily commit every day themselves.

I know policemen who are corrupt, who drink drive or speed and have been let off when caught by their “mates in blue”, take and sell drugs, fiddle tax and enjoy the odd free visit to a prostitute now and then. It is no mistake to say there is one law for us and another for the men in blue.

In comparison most of our armed forces are full of  working class men who grabbed the opportunity to serve as it was the only viable way to get out of their community that didn’t involve crime or a life on benefits.

If you have suffered an education at the hands of a UK comprehensive as I have then you will know that your chances of success in life come down to how much education you can gain outside the school gates as well as any luck or helping hand you can get along the way.

Unfortunately many boys from poor neighbourhoods all over our country come out of school at the age of 16 still not being able to read, write or do maths properly. With none or very few skilled labour  jobs left in UK towns that were once strongholds of manufacturing they are left with little hope for the future.

Therefore serving in the armed forces is usually the only option available to them that doesn’t involve selling drugs or working behind a McDonalds drive through.

Luckily we don’t ask our soldiers to walk towards machine gun fire like we did in World War 1 but we still ask them to fight wars halfway around the world in which they have little knowledge of the true reasons that lay behind them and then bring them back home to live in squalor with little reward or help for any problems they might have.

So I have nothing but admiration for those young working class men who are willing to put their lives at risk for stupid cowardly politicians who un-bravely live vicariously through the heroic deeds of others.

It sickens me to see Cameron, Sarkosy and Obama strut the world stage pretending they are helping deliver peace and prosperity whilst in truth they deliver drone attacks and half million pound Tomahawk missiles that kill and maim women and children and only stoke the fires of hatred that already exist because of our hypocritical and biased foreign policy.

Therefore I wholeheartedly agree that our troops should have the right to good accommodation, proper health care and support for the 1 in 8 who return with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and all the other mental and physical health problems they come back from the battlefield with.

Our prisons and homeless shelters are full of ex soldiers and it’s not right that we prioritise immigrants and skivers over those who had little to start off with but were willing to put it all on the line for the wreck-less decisions of others. I might not agree with the war but I want to see our troops supported when they return home limbless and mentally disturbed.

If we could truly change our hotch potch foreign policy and convert our Ministry of Attack to a true Ministry of Defence then we wouldn’t even have to be discussing the military covenant at all. Instead of wasting billions fighting pointless wars we would instead have enough money in our coffers to support our troops well being as well as all the other activities we are cutting from our public spending just so we can hand it over to Brussels to bail out Ireland, Portugal and Greece.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. Or if you need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install and other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
