How far we've fallen

I cannot think of any one fact which more clearly shows the speed and depth of our national decline than the news that when our Navy catches pirates, we give them nicotine patches and let them go.

Blair, Brown, Cameron. Wash, Rinse, and Repeat.

Of the three, at least Blair had the balls to actually go to war when needed after 9/11. Or maybe he wasn't up to explaining the necessity for surrender to the Queen, and the Armed Forces.

As for Cameron, the term "gutless trimmer" comes to mind.

Re the pirates, I'm sure the RN would prefer to give them the same treatment William Kidd and Jack Rackham got. Let alone Bartholomew Roberts and Edward Teach.

It's no more than they deserve.
