Just brilliant especially in light of the thousands of troops fighting along side our own in far away places. (Perhaps not much longer)
I don't know about you folks, but I have been so embarrassed by this whole blunder that I wrote a short, personal apology to the Prime Minister and to the wonderful, normally friendly people of England and sent it to the British embassy in Washington DC.
This was the only thing I knew of to do to let them know that we the people can be embarrassed by our representatives and when it happens and we recognize the problem it is not beyond us to speak our own minds.
At least for the time being we can still do that much although the freedoms we now enjoy are currently being threatened.
Stay safe, keep your powder dry and just wait, there will be more from whence this came.
UncleFudd...I'd love to have the link/reference to that staffer's statement so I can send it along to others. It's appalling...and in the scheme of things, has pretty frightening implications.
As for sending a note to the British Embassy, I think that was a fantastic gesture! If you receive a reply, I'd love to see it.
