Subject: War crimes in Gaza
Dear Mr Drax,
I pay my taxes, amongst other things, to provide effective armed forces able, if necessary, to project power to wherever it is needed in the world.
One of its functions must be in the gravest of circumstances, when tyranny reigns and innocent men, women and children are being slaughtered, to intervene on humanitarian grounds to force an aggressor to cease its attacks.
When are we going to Gaza?
This is a noble cause, far more so than defending assets or property. This is what our brave soldiers, sailors and airmen are for. A single Type 45 destroyer stationed off the coast of Gaza could immediately neutralise all Israeli airforce and missile activity.
When are we going to take the action that we are ethically and morally compelled to?
The amazing Type 45 or Daring class destroyer is the most powerful air-defence warship in the world. HMS Diamond is just a short trip away, through the Suez canal, from coming to the rescue of the Palestinian people in Gaza.
We are morally obliged, if necessary, to blast the Israeli airforce out of the skies. The evil actions of the war criminals in the Israeli government and the IDF far exceed those of Saddam Hussein, Colonel Gaddafi or Al Qaeda.
If we fail to rescue Gaza then we are complicit in the monstrous crimes of the Nazionists.
If Israel is concerned about the fireworks which the brave Palestinian resistance is firing in self-defence then the solution is simple. End the illegal blockade of Gaza. Comply with the 64 UN resolutions it is in breach of. Stop the theft of Palestinian land and destruction of Palestinian homes.
The final reckoning must also include multi-billion dollar compensation to the people of Gaza with Netanyahu and his cronies on trial for war crimes.
