Skip to comments.A disaster? No, it's high time Britain stopped being Uncle Sam's poodle

On June14, 1982, I watched the leading elements of Britains task force march wearily but triumphantly into Port Stanley, as the Argentine forces in the Falkland Islands surrendered.
That day, as we can see with painful clarity 31 years later, was the high watermark of British military endeavour since 1945.

Tony Blair confided to a colleague in the Nineties that the lesson of the Falklands was that the British like wars.

Wow, can Blair really be so stupid?
Parliament voted as they did because there was no leadership from America. None.And no faith that obungler has a clue or will ever act outside of his own personal interests.
The problem is not so much following the lead of the United States, as following the lead of a fool like Obama. Someday we may have a competent and well-intentioned leader again, and then the British should strongly consider being on our team.
My thoughts exactly. Obama has not only screwed up at home and among our foreign enemies but with our allies as well.
The entire world sees him for the self centered moron that he is.
Uncle Sam is not beating the war drum. It’s Uncle obama and his demonic democrat party of islam that wants you to die for caliphate. You British have no better friends in the world than American Patriots. You will find no Patriots in the leadership of this administration and our Military doesn’t want this war either. 53% of our electorate lost its collective mind twice... we are trying to do something about that. Your friends in America have never left... and we will return to power. Our bonds of friendship and respect are intact... out leadership today is not.
A big misjudgment indeed.
"What our people like are victories which happen quickly and cheaply, and serve our national interest."
Correction: What our people like is victory, not war.
"American legal vultures"
That describes the U.S. legal system rather well.
My hero is Winston Churchill (whose mother was an American), not that perverted idiot 0bama.
How about the awful way Obama has treated Great Britain? Has any recent President treated her any worse?
Especially Vlad RasPutin ;-).
But in the mirror of his fantasies, he's Haroun al-Rashid, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X all rolled into one Afro-Islamic soufflé.
The Brits shouldn't get their nose out of joint over that one. Though there's plenty more to justify an out of joint nose.
It's true, of course. France is the oldest ally of the U.S.A. The French assisted the U.S. in the American Revolution, sold us Louisiana at a bargain price, and gave us the Statue of Liberty.
Meanwhile the Brits fought against us, conscripted our men into British military service, and burned Washington. However: all that notwithstanding--as a great Freeper once observe sagely: "If they'll just come back and burn it again, all will be forgiven."
As though he needed any help to make himself look foolish!
Churchill was a great leader and a great man... obama is something but he has no greatness in him and he is no man.
“Going to war without the French is like going hunting without an accordion.”
We love you and always have.
But when you give our Dork-O-Dent the finger, we absolutely adore you.
Obama sent that bust of Churchill back to England, and I think the English just took it and stuck it up Obama’s donkey.
