Britain - No better friend

The President said it best after 9/11 when he said that America has no better friend than Great Britain. The coordinated attacks on the British public transportation system will not shake that friendship. I hope that America can provide whatever help Britain needs; I would be happy to go and help them out myself.
I have trained alongside the British Army for years. If the civilian populace of Britain is half as stoic as its military, they are going to be fine.
Al Qaeda needs to remember that Britain has already learned the lesson that appeasement doesn't work. It didn't work when the they tried to appease Hitler with the Sudetenland and the Brits are not about to kowtow to terrorists now.
for more info see blackfive and Winds of Change. I particularly liked blackfive quoting a comment made on Tim Worstall's blog:
"...Yes, we’ll take an excuse for a day off, throw a sickie. But you threaten us, try to kill us? Kill and injure some of us?
Fuck you, sunshine.
We’ll not be having that.
No grand demonstrations, few warlike chants, a desire for revenge, of course, but the reaction of the average man and woman in the street? Yes, you’ve tried it now bugger off. We’re not scared, no, you won’t change us. Even if we are scared, you can still bugger off..."
London is not the same as Madrid. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims of this cowardly attack. I hope they figure out who did this soon and sick the SAS on them.
