Let the British suffer, they asked for it.

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law

Ok,First of all lets have 100%honesty here!.

The British marched into Iraq (just like they did to Ireland and scotland back in history)all with the help of suitably brainwashed young fools some probably from Scotland too (no jobs in scotland thanx to the British again). Now of course the Irish got what they wanted by bombing London(well sort of) and the scottish may get independence one day. No-one bothers the Welsh (even the romans built a wall for christ sake)maybe because we cant understand them?.But the point is obviously about OIL.
If Iraq grew just cucumbers then would Britain be there?Of course not.

Britain is just doing the same thing it has done for centuries,recruit some poor folk and send them off to get hold of some new land somewhere.If you look at the British army its always been full of fine scottish men and men from Northen Ireland.Courages men of course but mislead and dirt poor.

But theres one big difference now,the enemy is within,at home with us.They serve us,they walk among us they speak our language. So the battle lines are drawn but they are very blurred! Henry V was worried at the battle of Agincourt that his small army may be attacked from the rear so he ordered his men to "slit the throats of all prisoners,but somehow i cant see a politically correct British goverment having the stomach for that.
The other side on the other hand does that with regular ease.
