It really is a true wonder that England withstood the attacks from the Germans. Total blithering idiots!
LISTEN - We have pumped no oil for Iraq, though we are owed at least the amount we have spent on the war. The American public was told from the beginning that we would get the costs back. As for Iran, the young 20 to 30 crowd, desperately wants a Democracy and Western ways. Do you think they'll just giveus their oil, when it is quite obvious that their oil is the path for their growth as a Democratic nation?
Go back to watching Benny Hill reruns.
Interesting post. A few suggestions spring to mind.
It wasn't 'England' that withstood the Germans, it was Great Britain. Might seem like nit-picking to you, but not to me.
Iran: have you seen some of Mr. Cheney's sabre-rattling recently? And anyway, you could have said the same thing for Iraq, which to give you credit seems to true given the magnitude of the Iraqi resistance.
Benny Hill: this has not been on terrestrial tv for years, although it does seem rather popular in the US.
And as for the whole 50 million English people being 'total blithering idiots', when I see Tony Blair in power for a second term, I tend to agree with you that there must be a fair number, but the reality is that the majority are very firmly against the war in Iraq. We don't want our soldiers killed for nothing, we don't want your soldiers killed for nothing, and we don't want tens of thousands of Iraqis killed for nothing, we don't want to pour billions down a hole in the sand. In fact, it's for less than nothing, because the region will revert to medieval theocracy (via pseudo-democracy) rather than a secular state. Try reasoning with those headbangers.
