"Yes I do. As Lord Chatham said, when he was speaking on the British presence in North America, he said 'if I was an American, as I am an Englishman, as long as one Englishman remained on American native soil, I would never, never, never lay down my arms'."
The BBC reports the following remark: "It is the soldiers who have been telling me from the frontline that the war they have been fighting is a hopeless war, that they cannot possibly win it and the sooner we start talking politics and not military solutions, the sooner they will come home and their lives will be preserved."
Now, now. Comparing the Iraqi resistance to American revolutionaries is the sort of thing you can only get away with if you aren't ceaselessly mining Bush's colonic matter. You are a Sir, Michael. That carries responsibilities. You are endowed by the British state, which couldn't be more completely embedded in the yankee yuckhole if it had the stars n stripes permanently embossed on every civil servant's backside, and a Secretary of State for McDonalds. Watch your mouth.
