The Twisted Ways Of Tony Blair
When being on a mission to prevent smuggling, 15 British sailors were surrounded by Iranian naval vessels who then abducted them and are now holding them hostage in Teheran, something which you all presumably already know.
I now read in the New York Post that the sailor's escorting ship, HMS Cornwall witnessed all this and had the power to destroy the Iranian naval vessels who attacked their comrades. Yet the British Defence Ministry apparently ordered them not to defend their comrades and simply hold still and witness their kidnapping.
Such is the ways of Tony Blair. First he sends out British soldiers to do things which are none of Britain's business (preventing car smuggling in Iraq) in a hostile area, then he refuses to allow them to defend themselves when attacked by one of the hostile forces. The only thing consistent in his actions is his altruistic betrayal of Britain's interests for the benefit of hostile people.
