Pro Deo Et Patria- An Army Chaplain

I am a chaplain in the US Army, serving in Iraq. I'm keeping a blog to share my thoughts and experiences while deployed. They are my thoughts and they don't necessarily reflect the opinions of the US Army! :)

Our British Allies

I'm curious how much press the issue of the British hostages in Iran is getting back in the US. It is a disgrace to see the Brits being paraded around and forced to make statements. One wonders what the Iranian end game is, but at the very least it shows the instability of this government in Iran.

Here is an interesting article from a British paper:;jsessionid=HOADO45SIMCEVQFIQMFCFFOAVCBQYIV0?xml=/news/2007/03/30/wiran730.xml

Part of the Iranian boldness comes from the growing perception of American weakness in the face of declining support back home. It is a dangerous side affect of our cut and run mentality.

No matter how much support you think the American position might be giving Iran, I guarantee you that our own bizarre inertia has made Britain's contribution infinitely greater.

American support is a great thing to have, but we should be taking care of our own. And we’re not. In fact, some of our commentators (including ex-Monty Python funnyman Terry Jones) have been at the forefront of the criticism of the British position.
