I don't think so. What's the old adage? Rattling a saber makes noise, drawing it does not...
As a previous post commented - "Spineless..." Totally wrong IMHO. Note the statement said something to the effect of not letting the Iranians have it all their way. For us Yanks, we have to remember that the British are far more understated and subtle than us. (for better or worse) Where we might say "Return our personnel, or else." the British say "...not have it all their way." The language may be different, but the intent and resolve behind it is not.
The Iranians would do well to remember a bit of US history... That part about "The British are coming, the British are coming!" ;-) Ask Argentina.
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Lol, no, I made them sometime back in different sizes too.
Each time Phil posts his 'Ahmadine-nutcase' I post them in reply!!
the brave freedom loving Iranians need to have their country back. The whackos have already declared war on the US and Britain...so to speak. They have supplied the bombs that have murdered over 170 of our service people. We should wipe out all of their military before they blow up one or more of our cities.
A war with Iran would not be a world war, and I dont see Russia or China jumping in. You are overreacting.
Iraq needs a navy

The Gutless British leadership...
England is Adrift..... a lamb to slaughter.
