Bloodthirstiness? How Rich!

Post by Karen on Tue 2 Aug 2011 - 1:06

Liberals, I am afraid, in their devotion to the solution of the Irish problem, are by this singleness of purpose dangerously near giving Lord Salisbury a "blank cheque" in foreign affairs. We can well remember the bitter onslaughts of the Tories upon the liberals in the period between 1880 and 1885, for the little wars in Africa, North and South. We can well remember the activity of Mr. Ashmead Bartlett, Sir H. Drummond Woolf, and Lord Randolph Churchill in questioning Liberal ministers, and denouncing the Liberal Government for pusillanimity, for weakness, and for blood thirstiness, when the Ministry was gravely occupied with questions of great importance in Europe, Asia, and Africa. Where, may we ask, is this activity, this righteous indignation now? More, why are our Liberal fighters in the House so silent, so apathetic, so limp, when we find that the Government of Lord Salisbury is up to its lips steeped in the mire of degradation in foreign affairs? Lord Salisbury has annexed Burmah, and waged a wretched, barbarous, and wicked war upon its people. Lord Salisbury has so mismanaged African business that Zululand is a seething mass of discontent; Cape Colony sorely troubled upon the question of Bechuanaland, and the Germans playing with our influence in Zanzibar. Under Lord Salisbury we are still at war with the natives in the Soudan, and we seem like drifting into another Soudan Campaign. Another "little war" is raging on the northern frontier of India, under the innocent name of the Black Mountain Expedition. Under Lord Salisbury we have trouble in Afghanistan, and by no means, a pleasant or harmonious relationship with America.
