Americans try to provoke an Iranian attack using British troops as the bait
350 British soldiers have been sent to the border with Iran, as part of an American inspired provocation.

That it came at the "request" of the Americans should come as no surprise. It may even have been the price that Gordon Brown had to pay to get Britain's American masters to agree to the retreat from the Basra city base in the first place.

What this means is that these troops will be either left like tits in the wind if the Iranians decide to take the bait, or that the Basra militias could start rocketing and mortaring the airport to try and force the troops on the border to return to base.

There have been no attacks on the British since they retreated from the city, but the Iraqis do have several hundred missiles stored close at hand and ready for use.

There can be only one reason for this provocation: the Americans are looking for an excuse for war and are praying that the Iranians attack this small force. British soldiers are being used as America's bait, their lives of no more importance than that of a sprat that is used to catch a mackerel.

That members of the British Government could go along with this only shows how unfit they are to even call themselves British, never mind to be in government.

Hang on, I remember reading on your blog that the British had withdrawn from southern Iraq with their tail between their legs.

Now you are telling us they are back and taking on the Iranians?

You are all over the place with this one, mate. I'd stick to being a tour guide, if I was you.

They did, webmong - and had to accept the Iraqi militias' terms as well! The militias now control Basra city and there is fuck all that British imperialism can do about it. It and you can swivel on that one.

The British are our allies. Allies collaborate with one another. Grow up and accept that. If you can't perhaps you should stop thinking of yourself as British.

Sure, as far as the British boss class is concerned, Britain is your loyal poodle.

As far as I am concerned every time another one of your soldiers goes home in a body bag, that is a step closer to getting you the fuck out of Britain.

Why Exile should care who is or is not in Britain, when he himself abandoned the country decades ago, is anyone's guess.

He seems to be precisely the kind of crusty old ex-pat who props up hotel bars in the compound and moans about the good old days and how the country has gone to the dogs.

Because I want to come home, that's why. I only left because I couldn't find a bastard job.

Not to worry. Every dog has his day. And revenge really is a dish best eaten cold.
