Another insurgency of bad English

Little Nicky’s foreign policy position has always been the same. Let other nations sort out their own affairs, no matter how much the west likes or dislikes the government / freedom fighters of that nation. Having reminded you of that here’s today’s item:

Emergency teams this weekend searched for two Ugandan army helicopters feared to have crashed in thick forest in Kenya while flying to Somalia to support forces fighting insurgents there, officials said.

Now the loss of the helicopters and very likely their crews is unfortunate but that is the price of war.

What concerns Little Nicky is the use of the term “insurgents.” These helicopters would have been dispatched by the African Union, the local military wing of the New World Order and the Ugandan helicopters were flying over Kenya to Somalia to fight “insurgents” who have lived in Somalia all their lives.

Similarly our troops, “the boys from the Thames and the Mersey and the Tyne” to quote Elvis Costello, who have been sent thousands of miles to Afghanistan to fight native Afghan insurgents whose families have been in Afghanistan for hundreds if not thousands of years.

The Afghans and Somalis, the people getting shot at, bombed and droned in Sudan, Yemen, Syria (whichever side they are on), Pakistan and elsewhere are not “insurgents”, nor do they wish westerners any harm. They just wish the New World Order, (EU, United Nations, NATO, IMF, African Union and every other buch of meddling bureaucrats would fuck off and leave them alone.

But what Little Nicky wants you to notice is the increasing use of Orwellian Newspeak by the New World Order, words are stood on their heads, turned inside out and stripped of meaning.

We should fight to preverve our language because when we cannot communicate we cannot fight for our freedom. An insurgent from blackburn told me that.

    All that moronic terminology comes from the US.
    But… Americans should be calling them “patriots” – that’s what they called themselves once upone a time. Alas, the shoe is on the other foot.
