WHAT WILL BRITAIN DO?

From Victor Davis Hansen:

The British may react very differently than the Spanish did after Madrid -- by doing nothing rather than by retreating from Iraq.
From Mark Steyn:

The choice for Britons now is whether they want to be Australians post-Bali or Spaniards post-Madrid.

This is the beginning of a long existential struggle, for Britain and the West. It's hard not to be moved by the sight of Londoners calmly going about their business as usual in the face of terrorism. But, if the governing class goes about business as usual, that's not a stiff upper lip but a death wish.
I encourage you to read both the Hansen and Steyn columns in their entirety. Please take the time.

As I wrote yesterday, "if the Free World had it together ..."

Regrettably, it does not.
