  1. Lets clear this up.. Has the pound recovered from brexit or not?.
  2. Then the pound spent 5 years climbing until Brexit appeared on the horizon then it fell off a cliff into the abyss, ...but what was it you actually said again: And: Then I showed you absolute proof that you were indeed wrong.
  3. I'm glad we agree the pound has not recovered since Brexit. I knew you would come round to the facts in the end.
  4. And yet, I was able to do so ...quite effortlessly.
  5. Maybe your device settings need adjusting, here is how the post looks to everyone else:
  6. The US has been working with terrorists for even longer and in greater numbers: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michael-hughes/us-support-for-al-qaeda-l_b_10089410.html ---------- Your point is?
  7. I think your making stuff up now, I said: I would suggest the greatest motivation for militants heading for Iraq was the US invasion Where did I declare it as being fact? & Why is "fact" in quotation marks, who are you quoting? It makes me laugh Morch, how you always rush for the strawman reply when you have nothing.
  8. I wasn't referring to the article, I was referring to the fact that extremists were operating in Syria prior to 2012. It should have been obvious from the post content I quoted: Islamists came on the scene early in 2012 or possibly even earlier. No mention of the article or any links, Just holler if you need more help using the internet.
  9. I would suggest the greatest motivation for militants heading for Iraq was the US invasion and the tens/hundreds of thousands civilians murdered in the process, the article seems to shy away from that fact and tries to blame Assad. Professor Peter Neumann, the London-based expert on security and radicalisation, has detailed how Assad and his intelligence chiefs actively encouraged Syrian extremists to fight in Iraq after the 2003 invasion led by America. Their logic was many would die or disappear, while the insurgency would weaken Western resolve to topple despotic regimes (since many senior figures feared their nation might be next.) They even released Islamist prisoners and gave them military training. The result was Syria became the key entry point for foreign jihadists heading to Iraq and a hotbed for fundamentalists. The logic in bold is sound if you consider the US aggression right on Assad's doorstep.
  10. Bang on, ....it was only officially acknowledged in 2012, it took the US/UK a few years to work out how they would spin to the media the fact they were supplying ISIS with weapons and air support.
  11. Ah. not even man enough to admit you are wrong, instead moving the goal posts with some unrelated nonsense not being discussed I'll just put these two posts side by side with the real timeline so everyone can see how dishonest you are ;0 Rise of Islamists 2013 December - US and Britain suspend "non-lethal" support for rebels in northern Syria after reports that Islamist rebels seized bases of Western-backed Free Syrian Army. 2014 June - Islamic State of Iraq and Syria militants declare "caliphate" in territory from Aleppo to eastern Iraqi province of Diyala. 2014 September - US and five Arab countries launch air strikes against Islamic State around Aleppo and Raqqa. 2015 January - Kurdish forces push Islamic State out of Kobane on Turkish border after four months of fighting. 2015 May - Islamic State fighters seize the ancient city of Palmyra in central Syria and proceed to destroy many monuments at pre-Islamic World Heritage site. Russian intervention 2015 September - Russia carries out its first air strikes in Syria, saying they target the Islamic State group, but the West and Syrian opposition say it overwhelmingly targets anti-Assad rebels.
  12. I see you're rewriting history again Craig: Rise of Islamists 2013 December - US and Britain suspend "non-lethal" support for rebels in northern Syria after reports that Islamist rebels seized bases of Western-backed Free Syrian Army. 2014 June - Islamic State of Iraq and Syria militants declare "caliphate" in territory from Aleppo to eastern Iraqi province of Diyala. 2014 September - US and five Arab countries launch air strikes against Islamic State around Aleppo and Raqqa. 2015 January - Kurdish forces push Islamic State out of Kobane on Turkish border after four months of fighting. 2015 May - Islamic State fighters seize the ancient city of Palmyra in central Syria and proceed to destroy many monuments at pre-Islamic World Heritage site.

  13. May ready for tough talks over Brexit

    Yes, an opportunity for Asian companies to buy up what little remains of UK industries at rock bottom prices.
  14. The red-shirt United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) insisted that it would hold its press conference on Thursday regarding its bid to seek justice for the victims of the 2010 crackdown Hmmnn, predictably the article omits much needed context for the crackdown by the military. After initial UDD unilateral demands of an early election were unsuccessful, dozens of M79 grenade attacks occurred...
  15. There is no slope to the drop in the pound its a vertical cliff which starts the same day the referendum result was known:
