So where's the coalition now?

The Iranians nabbed a bunch of British sailors last week, claiming that they had encroached upon Iranian territorial waters. As if England was about to launch an invasion of Iran from two zodiac boats. Anyway, this is not the first provocation from the fundamentalist government (if it may be labeled so) of Iran, and I, for one, think they need to be taken down a notch or too. Of course you're dealing with fanatics, so I am not sure what good it would do.

But what I really want to know is this: where is the US on this issue? The UK was the first nation to stand by us after 9-11, and they have remained steadfast (if misguided) allies in both Afghanistan and Iraq. Heck, Tony Blair is even now in the midst if sacrificing his party's majority in Parliament for us. So why aren't we the first ones out there condemning Iraq for kidnapping our closest allie's citizens?

I am not saying that we need to bomb Tehran, but a little solidarity would be nice.

True enough, right or wrong, they were with us from the start and have remained by our sides. Our reward for their blind loyalty? We ignore their current plight. Bush may not even know what has happened, if Rove has decided not to bother him with it. He is busy you know, sending everyones children off to fight except his own. By comparison, FDR had four sons in the military
during WWII.

Our disasterous foray into nationbuilding has made our government impotent in the face of real danger - Iran and North Korea. I am sure Condi will have some stern words for Iran in a few days.
