(sic)

Kudos, another undefended civilian target destroyed,

I has been that OSBL adopted much of his present MO based on his justifiable interpretation of the US "cut and run" fights of the United States, for example in Mogadishishu.

In other past engagements (Vietnam) but hanging in for nine years in a war that "no one wanted to win" would hardly be a basis for expecting an easy victory via an insurrectional route, so this postion may not be a wise one for OSBL.

I will go so as to say that the British reaction to this is likely to be "give it em back"--as anything else and as they reacted to the Luftwaffe's bombing of civilian targets, in WWII, which was, inteh end, a major tactical, strategic and propaganda mistake.

Comments?

I know I like to tease the British , it`s part of the colonial attitude .

Having said that , the number one British fortitude is endurance , followed by resolve .

there is probably not a nation on the planet with a more determined and resolute spirit when it comes to protecting there homeland .

these amatuers ... who try to destroy a nation like this have bitten of far more than they can chew .

they survived the Germans with an Iron will , never wavering in there resolve , in fact if anything it strengthened .

I`m sure the POHMS :wink: , will stand stong , there is no other choice , especially for a nation that refuses to cower .

they will defend there Island .
