Over the last couple of weeks I have visited many war memorials in Scotland, from The Royal Oak in the Orkneys to the X Boats at Kylescu, from the Royals at Spean Bridge to the memorial overlooking Stornoway, they are all worth a mention, the McDonalds, the Frasers, the Campbells and so on. But one ...

Jon makes some very valid points. The situation in Israel/Palestine has been simmering since biblical days, nothing will change unless Israel becomes the USA's 51st state, if ever that happens then God help us all!

They see America as ruthless, agressive, conceited, arrogant, and biased. In short, they see the US as the new Rome, a ruthless and godless empire, not as a Godly republic or a shining city on a hill. Most Americans don`t care what Arabs think, but if we are going to war, in my opinion, we need to ...

In the UK, the Labour party is unpopular, the Conservatives are also rans,...
