Default Re: Thanks to the Brits.

"Learn from history..."

Winston Churchill was vilified for wanting to confront Hitler militarily.

Learn further from history...

Neville Chamberlain was praised for his "appeasements" of the "Fuhrer."

If, in the 1930s, there had been a superpower to do in Europe what we are doing in Iraq
today, history would contain a far different lesson. Today's irony is that those most vocal in their protests and critiques of American foreign policy will benefit from the action we are taking. They will benefit in the reduced likelyhood that their protests may be interrupted by chemical or biological terrorist attacks. A further benefit they will derive is that victory will give us access to even more sand for them to stick their heads in.

God bless our troops and protect the innocents on all sides!
