TDB Recommends


  1. All you commies dreaming of a revolution might just get one…

    Whether it’s quite the workers paradise y’all dreaming of is another matter

    In other news

    Interpol Secretary General Ronald Noble said that armed citizens in open societies need to be able to defend themselves and others against terrorist attacks.

    “Societies have to think about how they’re going to approach the problem (of terrorism),” Noble told ABC.

    “One is to say we want an armed citizenry”


  2. Oh dear, oh dear. Seems one of them has been let out for the day to play and has decided to visit “us commies” via TDB! Give me strength!

  3. “Most of the 147 victims of a terror attack on a Kenyan university on Thursday died execution-style as they lined up waiting for their turn to be shot, a senior Kenyan government source has told The Telegraph.”

    “Some students were killed as they spoke to their parents on the telephone.”

    Maureen Manyengo, a 21-year-old Christian from western Kenyan who was training to be a teacher, described how she hid inside her wardrobe after seeing several friends killed.

    “I could hear the attackers telling my friends, ‘Do not worry, we will kill you, but we will die too’,” she said.

    She said the terrorists also told the cowering students: “We are not bad guys, we are just here to make your Easter Holiday better.”

    Reuben Nyaora, an aid worker who was among the first to enter the university after the terrorists’ final clash with Kenyan special forces late on Thursday afternoon, described seeing women rise from among the corpses covered in blood but unscathed.

    “I have seen many things, but nothing like that,” said Mr Nyaora. “There were bodies everywhere in execution lines, we saw people whose heads had been blown off, bullet wounds everywhere. It was a grisly mess.”

    • War mongering here.

      Do you belong to the infamous NRA?

      I lived in US for 6yrs and no one there wanted armed citizenry?

      • “Do you belong to the infamous NRA? ” Cleangreen

        No. I’m just a concerned ex-serviceman with a basic understanding of military affairs who sees troubled times ahead. I’m sure the Generals, defence brass and bureaucrats will say there’s nothing to worry about, it’s all under control

        “And if he sees the sword coming upon the land and blows the trumpet and warns the people, then if anyone who hears the sound of the trumpet does not take warning, and the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be upon his own head”Ezekiel 33:3-6

        It would be remiss of me not to at least not give y’all a heads up

        • I have respect Jamie, as I to am an ex serviceman 10th intake 1964.

          I don’t want citizenry armed mate, just think of the people out there now facing the wall, I did see this driving through Baltimore and south side Chicago mate and only a cop saved me from a bullet both times.

          See when everyone over there in very “depressed” areas gets a right to bear arms those neighbourhoods become death zones.

          Ask the Cops in Miami/Ft Lauderdale mate, where I also lived.

          It was widely known there were certain areas you don’t go as your life may be in danger.

          My Daughter entered a youth police academy training program there, and she used to ride with cops at night and want into these areas and they were very scary especially for us kiwis.

          Hope you now see what we face here if we all have the right to bear arms mate.

          • I an not saying arm the criminals – even though they already have access to weaponry

            US power is waning, the yankies won’t be able to protect us in the event of WW3 – don’t tell me it’s not happening, you don’t have to be an expert, you only have to turn on the news for five minutes to realise the global situation is outta hand and is gonna get a hell of a lot worse

            What do you suggest???

            • Well we need to become savy as US is with a volunteer home guard system, and armouries placed so we can have armourments given to the Home guard to protect us all.

              During the last war we did this also.

              Many countries have this system.

              Shit I would stand in ready to defend my beloved NZ and so would you.

              In Florida my Daughter joined the Civilian auxiliary Police force as a young helper during crowd control at sports fixtures and other events so we could use all manner of public support here, but arming everybody would harm everyone.

              My father was a bow maker for 40 yrs and an archery expert.

              Bows are as deadly as guns in many cases, better as you do not know or hear while the attacker is when you are hit.

              I have bows and boy they are deadly too.

              You and I learned how to set traps and pits (pungi) to snare intruders also right, so there are many ways to protect ourselves given some planning.
