Britain is powerful and a friend. Britain is powerful but not really needed by the United States; but they're not an enemy of the United States.
What was your point?
Britain is not needed? Mr. Blair put his career on the line to back the US in recent events. A providential Portuguese president was needed to add up to the lonely duo in the Azores. With all US might and influence a list of 35 countries only could find to support the war in Iraq. Something was amiss in these events and you say that Britain was not needed. I don't even know why I am arguing with you; you'll probably find something to say about my post, probably some lack of eloquence or pin point precision in my facts. I am not merely condemning everything for the simple sake of doing so. If Islam is the mighty evil, and if destruction shall be thrown on more than one billion of them, the issue concerns not Israel alone nor the US alone but an awful lot of us. And if the easy amalgam of Islam and terrorism is to be made, they might well end up being a real threat and enemy. We, as westerners, have a lot more to do with this quarrel than we would like to admit. And instead of taking our responsibilities, we slowly diabolize Islam.
