The weak-strong dichotomy

"When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse"
Osama Bin laden, November 2001

I wonder which we are?

Wonder no more. Here's what Tony Blair said about the British Marines who didn't fire at the Iranians when they were attacked:

Mr Blair said the attitude of the British personnel had been "entirely sensible". If they had fired, there would "undoubtedly have been severe loss of life".

Well, yes! That's what soldiers and sailors do Tony; bang, bang. And when they don't, they get captured.

What has this world come to when the Prime Minister of Britain says his forces should not fire because someone might get killed?

I'm not sure about the Brits and their horses....I'm a man and not a horse.
To bad Tony Blair lost his claim to that status!
The last Brit that I can think of who was a horse was Richard Harris .... and even he came through in the end!
