Apparently, Iran is holding 15 British naval seamen hostage. A CTV internet poll is asking readers to vote on the appropriate next response by British authorities. Military action is leading with a solid 48% response the last time I checked.
Let me be the first to tell you what will not happen. There will be no military strike nor will the British government even raise the suggestion of the possibility of a military strike against Iranian interests if the naval men are not immediately returned to the British authorities.
This is a political game of chicken and the Brits will not only be the first to blink (just like the last time) but this time - the Brits will be forced to feed the Iranian crocs whatever outrageous entrées it demands for breakfast, noon and dinner before those men are freed.
Nelson has been dead for a very long time now, and the Baroness is too old and frail to govern. God Save the Queen because this parliament of whanksters cannot.
