>>Having been attacked on the 11th September 2001, you find yourselves, through pure leadership, to be in a position that you have neither the guts nor the will to see through, even although you are brilliantly equipped to do so.<<
Ask George Bush. He started the war. He told everyone to just go about their business and not concern themselves with this little skirmish in the Middle East--that he would handle everything. He has called every shot. It is he who has not the guts or will to finish what he started.
He can't secure Afghanistan because he got himself mired in Iraq, who had nothing to do with 9-11. Now he's running this "brilliantly equipped" military into the ground. Now you're expecting Americans who were told by him not to bother themselves with the Middle East to volunteer to go there and get their asses shot up? Why doesn't he just use his brilliant equipment? That was the whole idea, remember? Lean, stripped down units with heavy technology. That was the future of warfare. Didn't quite work out, did it?
>>Your military have by training and by capability both the will and the resolution to see it through, but you are not prepared to stay the course and back them, and by doing so you guarantee your own demise.<<
Nobody is stopping George Bush from doing anything. He has not withdrawn a single soldier nor done anything else the antiwar movement has been calling on him to do for going on 5 years now. He has done exactly as he pleased with no oversight. And those soldiers that still support him are still insisting it can be won--and that's where it stands--them telling us we're winning but unable to prove it by bringing troops home. They say the results are there and we're waiting to see them.
The antiwar movement has had little to no effect on Iraq policy--it is going on exactly the way George Bush is demanding that it be allowed to. He's just incompetent and is trying to buy time so he can get out of office before his house of cards crumbles and idiots like you can blame everybody but the ones responsible.
>>I would never have thought that a country so well blessed could have defeated itself so comprehensively twice in under fifty years.<<
Aren't you British? You should well acquainted with that feeling. It shows how stupid Bush is to want Britain on his side after the way they embarrassed themselves a fighting a ragtag bunch of kids in the Falkland Islands.
>>The first time you managed to recovered from it, this time you will not. High time you woke up to the fact that you are fighting for your survival and start acting accordingly. Britain had it in 1940, now its your turn.<<
Fuck Britain. We don't exist for you. We don't care what happens to you. We never did and we're not going to start now. You're our bitch and we will do with you as we please and we will be finished with you when we say we are finished with you. Not your choice to make. You should know that. Blair did at least. He's silly and stupid but he knows who butters his bread and it's about high time the rest of you did. Don't tell us what we should be doing when you can't do it yourselves.
>>Now who amongst you are going to act so that someone will state that this was your finest hour - sadly I think no-one, because when push comes to shove you are just not up to it, you are fully prepared to talk about freedom, rights and liberty, you are simply just not prepared to fight for them or defend them.<<
Against whom? A dictator that posed no threat to us or the president assaulting our constitution and eradicating out habeus corpus?
