You’re hollow

You’re hollow

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!

T.S. Eliot had your number. He thought things were bad in 1925. Well, he didn’t live to see social media.


The repulsive, lipless, Jew-hating, death’s-head hag who wrote that is an idiot.


Suicide bombing dates to March 13, 1881, when Ignacy Hryniewiecki assassinated Emperor Alexander II of Russia with an explosive device that killed both men. Hryniewiecki—NOT A JEW—wrote a note the night before the attack.

Alexander II must die. He will die, and with him, we, his enemies, his executioners, shall die too… It is my lot to die young, I shall not see our victory, I shall not live one day, one hour in the bright season of our triumph, but I believe that with my death I shall do all that it is my duty to do, and no one in the world can demand more of me[.]

He was clearly the first modern suicide bomber.

Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar

For some reason people are sending me a photo of Aylan Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian refugee who drowned and washed up on a beach in Turkey after a boat capsized on its way to Greece. The same people sending me the photo oppose war. Does that make any sense to you? They claim to be upset at the death of Aylan Kurdi, but they refuse to support any measures taken to make sure that more Syrian children don’t die.

Shape without form, shade without colour,
Paralysed force, gesture without motion;

To save three-year-old Syrians, you have to kill many thousand of adults. In the current era of addled preening, people think it’s wrong to kill unrepentant murderers. I’m not talking about the death penalty; opposing the death penalty is entirely legitimate, I think, even though I myself support it. However, opposing war waged to save the lives of children is deeply immoral.

Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death’s other Kingdom
Remember us—if at all—not as lost
Violent souls, but only
As the hollow men
The stuffed men.

This is a man who will be remembered as hollow and stuffed.


His name is Jeremy Corbyn, and his resume is that of a cartoon character.

A member of the Socialist Campaign Group, the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign, Amnesty International, the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and the Stop the War Coalition (of which he has been the national chair since 2001), Corbyn is currently a candidate in the 2015 Labour Party leadership election.

Here’s how he wants to deal with the Islamic State.

Jeremy Corbyn: Don’t Bomb ISIL

Jeremy Corbyn would stop the bombing campaigns against ISIL he said tonight, preferring to “isolate” the terrorist group instead.

British aircraft are involved in bombing missions against ISIL in Iraq, and the Government suggested last month it would investigate whether to extend the remit into Syria.

Mr Corbyn, the front-runner in the Labour leadership contest, tonight said he was opposed to military intervention against the group.

In an interview with BBC 2’s Newsnight, the Islington North MP also called for former Labour leader Tony Blair to be put on trial if it was ruled the UK-supported invasion of Iraq was a war crime.

Mr Corbyn said: “We should look very seriously, very urgently, at the money that ISIL have got, the arms ISIL have got and the export of oil that ISIL is making.

“I would want to isolate ISIL. I don’t think going on a bombing campaign in Syria is going to bring about their defeat, I think it will make them stronger, so I’m not in favour of that.

“I’m not a supporter of military intervention, I’m a supporter of isolating ISIL and bringing about a coalition of the region against them.”

Writer Owen Barnett obviously doesn’t understand spoken English, because Corbyn didn’t say, “Don’t bomb the Islamic State.” He said he would help create a regional coalition to do all the fighting for him so that he can maintain the fiction that he didn’t participate in a war. He’s a poseur who wants better people than him to do the dirty work.

Let me be no nearer
In death’s dream kingdom
Let me also wear
Such deliberate disguises
Rat’s coat, crowskin, crossed staves
In a field
Behaving as the wind behaves
No nearer—

Jeremy Corbyn openly wears a rat’s coat, yet people applaud his morality.

This is the dead land
This is cactus land
Here the stone images
Are raised, here they receive
The supplication of a dead man’s hand
Under the twinkle of a fading star.

What about the supplication of living children? The hollow men and women don’t care. It’s more important that they wear their rats’ coats than save the lives of the helpless. Overthrowing a state sponsor of terrorism? War crime. It’s far more moral to let hundreds of thousands be killed than to take up arms against the killers.

The eyes are not here
There are no eyes here
In this valley of dying stars
In this hollow valley
This broken jaw of our lost kingdoms

Not all kingdoms are lost. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has decided to spend the lives of its sons and untold billions of dollars to make the Middle East a better place. People tell me that they don’t trust the Saudis. You know who you shouldn’t trust? The press. The International Committee for the Red Cross. Doctors Without Borders. The United Nations. Amnesty International. Human Rights Watch. They’re all lying.

Journalists, “human rights” groups, and aid workers say that the Saudi-led Coalition is waging indiscriminate war against the civilians of Yemen. There’s literally not a shred of proof that this is true. No photos, no videos, and no forensic evidence. Human Rights Watch published a photo of what they claim is a Saudi cluster munition, a “banned weapon.” That’s a lie. Only poison gas and bacteriological agents are banned.

The photo is supposed to be the SUU-65/B Tactical Munitions Dispenser (TMD) of a CBU-87 Combined Effects Munition, but it’s not real.


These images show the CBU-87.



In the Human Rights Watch photo, the SUU-65/B has no suspension lugs, meaning an aircraft could not have carried it. Also, there’s a fuse well (red arrow) not seen on the actual munition.


The “broken” edge of the casing (green arrow) is far too thick to be sheet metal, and it’s also olive drab, indicating that the fragment is made of a molded, homogeneous material, a thermoplastic such as ABS. Finally, the body has extensive riveting (blue arrow), another feature absent from the SUU-65/B. It’s a composite photo; a prop was superimposed on a background scene.

Like the SUU-65/B above, this explosion is fake. It’s computer-graphic imagery (CGI).


I knew that the image wasn’t real even before I used the “equalization” function of photo-enhancement software on it. A Czech photographer taught me that. The person asked to remain anonymous because of Jew-hate in the Czech Republic. Here’s the fake photo after I used the equalization function.


It’s another composite image. The buildings and the mountain were photographed separately and joined, and then the crappy animated fireballs and smoke were added. I’ve marked the edges of the superimposition with green arrows. Photographer Mohammed Huwais is a liar. But nobody cares.

Between the conception
And the creation
Between the emotion
And the response
Falls the Shadow
Life is very long

Life should be very long. Israel, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Senegal, Pakistan, and I think Italy, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Canada, Poland, Lebanon, Azerbaijan, and Australia are going to send men and women into battle so that others may live.

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

No. The world won’t end anytime soon. Though many of us are hollow, there are still people with souls and beating hearts. They don’t wear rats’ coats, and they aren’t stuffed with straw.
