Skip to comments.The Capitulation of Great Britain
Posted on 04/09/2007 8:44:15 AM PDT by jveritas
It was a shock for many of us to see the incredible impotence and weakness of the British during the latest hostage crisis when the Iranian terrorist regime illegally captured 15 British sailors for almost two weeks.
The terrorist mullahs in Tehran declared war against the British by taking their sailors and marines hostages but the British government ignored this and did not even want to call the hostages hostages for fear of escalating the situation. From the vast and rich vocabulary of the English language, the British officials came up with the meekest of words to condemn Iran act of war. The British prime minister and his foreign affairs minister really scared Ahmadinajad and Khamenei with such powerful and frightening words like Inappropriate, Wrong, and Uncalled for to describe Iran aggression against them. Well we are all glad that British kept their cool even in the use of language (extreme sarcasm). So impotent and pathetic were the British that they went to UN to get a statement to condemn Iran actions in the strongest term but they did not even get this from the most corrupted global organization.
During the few weeks Falkland islands war between Britain and Argentina, the British lost 255 troops to take back the islands from the Argentine aggressors, a loss that it is more than they lost in four years during the Iraq war, but this was then during Marguerite Tatcher time and this is now during Tony Blair time. Now it is the time of Great Britain Capitulation for a 7th century Islamic terrorist regime. The current British Navy rules of engagement in the Persian Gulf, the most hostile maritime region in the world, can be summarized as follow: Do not fire at Iran navy even if Iran attacks our Navy because we are not officially at war with Iran. May be the terrorist mullahs in Tehran can order the destruction of the whole British navy in the Gulf and get away with it as long as they do not officially declare war on Britain because it seems from her latest that Britain will not declare war unless Khamenei and Ahmadinajad officially and clearly say the following We are at War with Great Britain.
Even more shameless and embarrassing acts have been those performed by the so called 15 British Marines who were taken hostages. Many of us want to sympathize with their ordeal just from human point of view but those folks have dishonored and disgraced their military uniform and status by being so friendly and undignified when dealing with their terrorist captors, appearing with Ahmadinajad and giving praise to him as if he was the incarnation of Winston Churchill. The shameful 15 are now selling their stories to the media, they were not only cowards but now they are profiteering from their cowardliness.
The more unfortunate part in all of this is that this is not just a weak and cowardly behavior by the British government but it seems it is more like the decease of the French Surrender has also inflicted the British people as well as the whole of Europe. It was in July/7/2005 that the British people made it clear that they were not willing to fight islamic terrorism. The terrorist attacks in London on that day were an act of war by the global islamic terror movement against Britain, but the British people and government refused to consider it as such because it will entail fighting and providing more sacrifice to win this historic struggle. The British people and government had a shockingly cold reaction to those terrible attacks. They have treated the act of war on 7/7/2005 as just a security incident in the Tube.
There is only one cnation left on this planet to defend the world from islamic terrorism and that this the United States of America. I think President Bush may have realized by now that when the time will come to forcefully deal with the ultimate regime of terror, the islamic terrorist regime in Tehran, we are going to do it alone, we have no real allies left who are willing to fight for their freedom and their way of life, it is up to the USA to preserve it for us and the rest of the world.
Great piece, JV. And your conclusions seem sadly accurate. We’re on our own.
Yes we are on our own and may be it is better to be this way. Of course we need to fight our our defeatists and traitors in our midst who are also willing to capitulate and surrender.
The Sun sets on BRitish Empire
I bet there still some hopping ready to take “siplomacy” to a new level.
How many years has the Iranian Regime been kicking sand at the West? Time to toss some back.
Not really, read Revelation.
We have Australia, Eithiopia, Poland and Japan
The Empire lost for want of a $50 marine radio.
siplomacy = diplomacy
Britainia run away
Britain never ever ever
Shall be brave
The sun has indeed set on the British Empire. Will the crescent moon now rise over the British Homeland?
Queen Elizabeth I reigned over the beginning of the British Empire and the establishment of Anglicanism as we know it today. Queen Elizabeth II has the honor of reigning over the end of the British Empire and the break-up of Anglicanism.
Britainia run away
Britain never ever ever

Perhaps this is the “rock bottom” that is required before the beginning of recovery. A lot of British are very upset of this.
Here's an interesting piece by David Reinhard, England And Radical Islam that's related.
Those in our midst will always be secure so long as we follow ineffective and ambiguous R.O.E.'s for domestic enemies.
What does it profit a country to vanquish all of its foreign foes only to lose its own soul to the enemies within?
>decease of the French Surrender< ? When did the french stop surrendering?
There might be one more ally—Israel. Certainly, they have a dog in this hunt.
One direct result of these sailors and Marines behavior, I believe, is today’s announcement from Iran. They feel that no one can, or will, stop them. I pray they have miscalculated.
“Perhaps this is the ‘rock bottom’ that is required before the beginning of recovery.”
It isn’t even the beginning of the end. First we must see through the collapse of American public will and the withdrawal of most US forces from the Middle East. Then we will see the abrupt tilting of the new Iraqi government towards their co-religionists in Teheran. Then we’ll get to see the development of the Iranian nuclear weapons, and the escalation of threats.
“When did the french stop surrendering?”
What did anything that happened involving these Brits have to do with France?
