UK Lord for using neutron bomb on Pak-Afghan border

Moderator’s Comment:  I am in deep grief & a state of shock. A UK MP has made a detailed comment that a neutron bomb should be dropped on the borders of Afghanistan-Pakistan. Anyone with sensibilities will appreciate that such Hate Speech can only lead to more hate. Should it be allowed to slide?Can the world afford more hate? Should not the UK Govt be made to haul up the MP & issue an apology of the statement?

LONDON: Britain’s House of Lords member Lord Gilbert on Friday stunned peers by suggesting that a neutron bomb could be used to create a “cordon sanitaire” in troubled border regions such as the one between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

 

According to media reports, the member of the upper house of the UK’s parliament said, during a debate over eliminating nukes across the world, that the borders could be made safe after dropping ERRB warheads commonly known as neutron bombs in the respective areas.

 

“Your Lordships may say that this is impractical, but nobody lives up in the mountains on the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan except for a few goats and a handful of people herding them. If you told them that some ERRB warheads were going to be dropped there and that it would be a very unpleasant place to go, they would not go there. You would greatly reduce your problem of protecting those borders from infiltration from one side or another.” According to reports, the members of the House of Lords were shocked after listening to an unexpected speech from Gilbert.

 

The parliament members heavily criticized Gilbert and rejected his suggestion saying that it was not possible to drop a bomb in the Pak-Afghan border areas.Labour former defence secretary Lord Browne of Ladyton rounded on Lord Gilbert over his remarks, accusing him of being at his “most challenging and contrarian”.

 

Cabinet Office spokesman Lord Wallace of Saltaire said the Government did not share Lord Gilbert’s “rumbustious” views on the sensitive issue. “The UK retains a firm commitment to the long-term goal of a world without nuclear weapons,” he said.

 

“Our aim is to build an international environment in which no state feels the need to possess nuclear weapons – an environment that will allow nuclear states to disarm in a balanced and verifiable manner.”

    Cold-blooded murder fronted as patriotism/nationalism is the legacy of the western post-colonial world.
    If they do that, they’d just encourage, maybe ensure, the dropping of a similar bomb on Israel. – Najma

    • sturkman  On November 24, 2012 at 5:54 am

      How Najma?
      Has Pakistan copied a Neutron Bomb also?
      And please also tell us, where that Moslim Country would hide after dropping Neutron Bomb on Israel?

    Shameful how no Pak pol leader has condemned Lord Gilbert’s hate speech suggesting use of neutron bomb against Pak! MFA ISPR also silent!

    • sturkman  On November 24, 2012 at 5:58 am

      Shameful how no U.K. pol leader has never condemned constant hate speech of our leaders suggesting JehaaD declaration against USA and her allies for decades.

  • Shireen Mazari  On November 24, 2012 at 5:45 am

    US designed neutron bomb during Cold War especially to kill people but keep industrial and other infrastructure in tact!

  • Shireen Mazari  On November 24, 2012 at 5:45 am

    At the very least UK shd issue an apology 2 Pak ppl 4 this hate speech reg use of neutron bomb! But if Pak rulers silent why wld UK worry?

    • sturkman  On November 24, 2012 at 6:01 am

      Oh yes, yes U.K. should issue apology or we would burn U.K. Flag, right?
      Pakistan should insist on U.K. apology or drop a Neutron Bomb on London, right?

  • Charles Hastings  On November 24, 2012 at 9:22 am

    Why dignify his comment with a response?

  • Hamid Qazi  On November 24, 2012 at 9:23 am

    I think Charles Hastings is right.

    This member of the house should be checked by an eminent consultant for ‘senile dementia.’

  • Adeel Kazi  On November 24, 2012 at 9:24 am

    How about charging this old fart under the inciting terrorism laws ?
    Or would that upset English sensibilities about their peerage ?

  • idrees  On November 24, 2012 at 9:24 am

    Proof that all kind of nuts exist, have brains, tongue and lips, not necessarily all in good order.

    Hi Yasmeen,

    You can’t be serious about “deep grief and state of shock.” This had nothing to do with racism, just pompous Imperialism. Just another idiotic British statement. It’s like saying “so-and-so should be shot.” I could think of a dozen troublesome border hot spots where that solution has been mentioned in passing. Not all of them are even in Muslim countries. The day will come when such solutions of desperation will be used, though, mark my words

    • sturkman  On November 24, 2012 at 6:31 pm

      No Peter,
      Only Moslims have a right to say and do things like that not Non Moslims. Repent your Sin for posting your blasphemous remarks in this Holy Pak Moslim Forum …!

  • Salimullah  On November 25, 2012 at 1:26 am

    Agreed whole-heartedly.

    May I suggest that your blog initiates a signature campaign to ban entry of this nut in the OIC member countries, pending action by the British PM or retraction/apology by the man.

    UK lord for using neutron bomb on Pak-Afghan Border.

    LONDON: Britain’s House of Lords member Lord Gilbert on Friday stunned peers by suggesting that a neutron bomb could be used to create a “cordon sanitaire” in troubled border regions such as the one between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    It is very surprising, why this so called Lord didn’t suggest nuking Ireland, at the height of the IRA militancy, when even Birmingham was bombed by the terrorists?

    Government of Pakistan, must declare the so called lord Gilbert of UK, as a Persona non grata, for his hate mongering and debar his entry forever, in Pakistan. As was done by the UK government, with our H’able minister Mr. Ghulam Ahmad Bilor.

    My tweet message to the British PM.

    @David_Cameron UK banned entry of Pak minister now we will c what action will be taken against Lord Gilbert for mother of all hate speeches?

    Lord Gilbert seems have turned senile.No sensible person would heed to such silly talk………….Inam Khan

      Vow here comes the blessed Messiah in to tell the world how right the lord is because he is the off shoot of the lords that Turkey aaka Ghasi ram bows to. Only he has the right for these pearls of wise advices

    If even anyone dare to match this statement be a leader or a commoner he or she will be labelled as pro Taliban, hence we must adhere to what Allama Iqbal said

  • SHOMU BHATTACHARYA  On November 25, 2012 at 6:03 am

    The Good Lord must be simply crazy–how can one even think of such a thing and that too at a time when there is more than enough in our hands to curb this kind of senseless jingoism

  • Omar Khan  On November 29, 2012 at 1:43 am

    Dear All

    It is said that once in a while, people will surprise you and once in a while
    people will take your breath away. The UK Lord has done neither. He
    just made me want to puke. Honestly you should neither be in a state of
    shock or grief but be amused as at a petulant and unpleasant person trying
    to step in his own filth without his boots on. His is a lone voice, whimpering
    and bleating ineffectually about a shallow and inhuman desire, whose
    kind live in dreams and die there. Hate mongers will always be among us like
    the white supremacists in the Bible belt area of the USA. They have never
    gained momentum as their ideas are an anathema to the sensitivities of the
    other whites.The UK Lord’s hate mongering speech will also have the same
    fate. I would not even bother to waste my time on any form or manner of
    protest as it would dignify the Lord’s speech (not the big Boss up there but
    the UK Lord). Ignore it. His thoughts and speech, I am sure have already
    undergone post birth abortion.

    Regards

    Omar Khan

      That’s right. Talking about killing us is stupid, when we kill a million of us each year in a worse way than Neutron Bomb. We would kill about a million of our Females by Female Fetal Abortion, Female Infanticide and Honor Killing all around world and he is only talking about nuking Waziristan Border area where less than 50,000 people live. We have to scream about him a lot to hide killing of a million Daughters of Ommah. Don’t talk about Savages amongst us. Just talk about others, right?
