    The allies of the US in it's action against Iraq feel they were duped. The governments still publicaly support the Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns but privately the goodwill has all been used up.

    Don't expect ANY enthusiasm from them to start a fresh conflict.

    Eh, Britain knows that next time some two-bit dictator comes to power in Europe and they need us to bail them out again, we'll be there for 'em. So they feel safe taking us for granted in the meantime.

    My uncle, 80, and my cousin, about 45, came over for my mom's funeral from England. My cousin was very polite, but when I drew out his opinion on our politics, he basically said we're nuts. My uncle said we're nuts, but we saved their buttocks in WWII and held the line against the commies.

    I love my uncle, but he's only got so long left. My cousin will be around a long time.

    So, you think the English have a far superior political process?
