Honor is unfortunately becoming rarer and rarer these days. There are far too few in Washington or London that would be willing to sacrifice their livelihoods to do the right thing.
The SAS should kidnap the polidiots, take them to Basra, drop them off, call the press to film their begging to be rescued...but let them die.

Jusat think of where we would be had the military gone into the Bay of Pigs after kennedy wimped out.
You’ll like this. The outcome, not the politics.
I certainly hope those particular politicians are voted out of office.... TODAY.
Why is there no Official UK Election thread??
Bravo Zulu, SAS.
Never let a politician tell you what you can’t do.
