John Reid: We must use science to defeat al-Qaeda

#1
In the past I've pontificated over the idea that the Iraq (mis)adventure is the practical manifestation of a mad neo-conservative academic scientist's experimentation with social demographics and ideology.

Having jumped ship from Defence to Home Office, is the SoS now attempting to impose staff cut-backs on the Police in lieu of the arrival of much heralded 'network enabling capabilities', blah, blah...??

:evil:

John Reid joins the list of ignorant cnuts who believe we will win this war with technology instead of a basic understanding of human behaviour. Take a seat next to Donald Rumsfeld. You stupid fcuk.

On the other hand, if they could use technology to create this, I'd be happy:



Mmm, Lisa, my favourite 80's robot. She can win my war on terror anytime.

If this lot had been running the country during WW2 just imagine how we would have fought the war:

Great picture Sejanus - I see one of the formation copped some flak and is going down in flames.

Smoke me a Kipper!

How much science do you need?

They´ve had the Neutron bomb for years,they could have dropped a couple in Afghanistan near the caves where Bin Laden was hiding and nobody would have noticed, (except of course the observant types noticing that a few rocks had moved)! :twisted:

No, we need science TESTS - like a physics exam or something. This would mean Al Qaeda would be easy to track as they accessed websites for the answers. The only (small) issue is getting AQT to register for the exams but if, like MK2, we linked it to promotion they would all sign up - then we could get them.

Oh yes, this is genius!!

You use the science to get the bloke to court - CPS or others cock-up. The defendant gets equal scientist tothrow dust at the prosecution scientist.
You use science to get the bloke - for want of a better word - interned. Fluffy types moan and moan.
You use science to identify who needs summary execution - As if.

... I really love it when people talk about science and it's potential uses when they haven't got a clue what it is.

John Reid is a dullard. He only said it because he thought is was an original and intelligent thing to say, when really it's just vapid and vacuous drivel. The man is a moron.

FYI - science is a way of thinking about things - a methodology if you will.

Here bloody here God gave us Neutron weapons for a reason - and that reason was AQ - in fact the Pakistanis would no doubt be quietly grateful if a few 'missed' and cleared Waziristan etc.

Reid has clearly learned none of the lessons from NI - you do not win wars against terrorists. They will stop terrorising when they lose their support and when they change their ideology. In the meantime we defend against the threat.

Reid etc wont face the fact that terrorists will sometimes get through and people will die.

Shrew,
Hear, Hear, you could just tell from Reids spiel, one it had obviously been written for him and secondly as usual he hadn't f'ucking clue what he was on about.
Have you noticed how the Glaswgian hard man always looks slightly nervous when giving a talk?
I reckon its because he has not given any thought to what he is saying and is therefore worried about getting the words in the right order.

Hear Hear.

Next time some cnut talks to you about 'winning' - ask him what 'victory' would look like - and to work back from there to the point of departure (the sh*tty state of RIGHT NOW , for example) and explain the chain of cause and effect by which 'Technology' (or 'Overwhelming Force' or any other 'Magic Bullet') is expected to deliver the end state he has described.

If he's an American military cnut, it may also be amusing to ask "Doctrinally speaking, what exactly is the operation being conducted in IRQ/AFG?", and link that to the above.

From Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neutron_bomb

"The neutron absorption spectrum of air is disputed, and may depend in part on absorption by hydrogen from water vapor. It therefore might vary exponentially with humidity, making high-altitude neutron bombs immensely more deadly in desert climates than in humid ones. This effect also varies with altitude."

See, you lot were right, there is some divine intervention in this technology :D
