Tony Blair: west must be ready to deploy ground troops against Isis

Tony Blair

Tony Blair stated his view on how the fight against ISIS must continue in the future.

Britain and its western allies must be prepared to send ground troops to “crush” Islamic State forces or risk a terror attack in Europe of “such size and horror” that draconian security measures would have to be introduced, Tony Blair has said.

In a lengthy article on the Brussels bombings, the former prime minister said local forces could be used against Isis in Iraq, Syria and Libya. But he said western ground forces would eventually be needed to defeat Isis as it sought to create a caliphate.

He wrote:” Ground forces are necessary to win this fight and ours are the most capable.”

Blair suggested that Britain may need to go further, at least in Iraq and Syria. He wrote: “We are making progress in the fight against Isis but it has to be eliminated with greater speed and vigour. This ‘caliphate’ is itself a source of recruitment. We can use local allies in the fight, but they need equipment and where they need active, on-the-ground, military support from us, we should give it. The Americans are doing this now – at least to a degree and with effect. But to have allowed Isis to become the largest militia in Libya right on Europe’s doorstep is extraordinary. It has to be crushed.”

Blair issued a stark warning of the dangers of failing to defeat Isis. He wrote: “We will have periodic but increasingly frequent acts of terrorism that will result in many more victims and start to destabilise our political and social cohesion. Eventually the terrorists will commit an act of such size and horror that we will change our posture; but by then the battle will be much harder to win without measures that contradict our basic value system.”

The former prime minister said the military fight against Isis should be part of a wider strategy to confront what he called the “perversion” of the Islamic faith by the ideology of Islamism. He said people should be careful talking about tackling violent extremism because Islamism was a “much broader problem of ideology”, whose supporters run into the millions across the globe.

Blair wrote: “The reality is that the adherents of this view of Islam are numbered in many millions, have, in some countries, elements of official support, and are systematically teaching it to millions of young people across the world … This ideology is not interested in coexistence. It does not seek dialogue but dominance. It cannot therefore be contained. It has to be defeated.”

Blair said Islamism could be defeated by marshalling an alliance within Islam. “Many Muslims are speaking out and as they do, others gain confidence and follow; because the majority of Muslims hate the way their faith has been hijacked. And never forget the majority of terrorist victims are Muslim.”

    Boots on the ground meaning men fighting men in hopes getting a medal of your services which perhaps is given to grieving relatives. In both sides, relatives of the victims and authorities honor dead soldiers as heroes. If you are lucky and will not get shot, you must make a heroic act to receive some kind of honor. Both respect the death more than life since the world is false hopes of an afterlife in heaven and if unlucky you will reach hell. This bloodbath will continue until the whole humanity has one teaching and One God acknowledged; the One Who Created the Universe.

    Religious ideology is like any virus only waiting for ideal circumstances for the eruption causing the epidemic. Now, we have in talks a brutal Islamist Militant group ISIS or ISIL or however you wish to name them. There is no difference, it has a religious base and now we have the final religious war expanding to World War III, which will be the end of false religious doctrines. All the signs are in the “air” and history researchers publish the facts one by one. And those viruses will be emerging even more if we continue following man-made false god (Jesus) since the curse of God is on and temperature rising. Adding the false manners we have; eating the meat of animals and disobeying the 10 Commandments of God.

    The reason for this blind behavior of men is due to the curse of God and we cannot distinguish good from bad. If people only leave their life important issues for a moment and listen to the message of God, He left us long ago. God commanded us to wait for His last prophet to reveal His Holy Name to the whole humanity and only during our technological era it finally is possible; The Internet time and highly developed technologies in communication. You perhaps remember the words of Jesus Nazareth about “For as the lightning comes from the east and shines as far as the west” (Matthew 24:27). Yes, this is our generation and the coming of the real Crist or Son of God. Jesus never fulfilled his task to God by telling His Holy Name to people of Israel during his life on earth. His task was to tell the Name of God and not usher people built houses of worship (Churches) on his own name. (2 Samuel 7:12-14) Correct, Jesus failed and taught us all worshiping Satan and religions are the angels of Satan (Revelation 12:9)

    The Bible revelations of the last prophet of God (Deuteronomy 18:18-19), Maestro Teacher Evangelista of and

    ”I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him. If anyone does not listen to my words that the prophet speaks in my name, I myself will call him to account.”
    Deuteronomy 18:18-19 NIV

    God has said before in Deuteronomy 18:18-19, about the ONE prophet whom He will send like Moses, and in whose mouth He will place His words (meaning the chosen one will not study the Bible on his own nor will he study ancient languages as God Himself will instruct him about His words) and the prophet will speak in His Name or reveal His (God’s) Name.

    This is not about a new religion or cult but a MESSAGE and this means whether you accept the ‘Prophet like Moses’-Maestro Evangelista’s Bible revelations in the previously mentioned websites or not is your prerogative -what is important is you have been informed and it is now your choice if you, the readers of this article would also inform others especially your family, friends, loved ones, the people in your community and most importantly your leaders about the messages that the Almighty God of Moses’ commanded Maestro Evangelista to reveal through the Bible in the said websites.

    Whether or not you accept the ‘Prophet like Moses’-Maestro Evangelista’s Bible revelations in and is not our responsibility. It is to God that you will be accountable to and not Maestro nor us – our task is to just have you informed of God’s true message.
