One British minister said that bombing Iraq would be catastrophic because women and children would be killed and the consequences for the US and Britain in the Arab world would be unimaginably dangerous. He warned that US and British embassies in the Arab world would have to close and British civilians would have to be advised to leave the area. He feared that moderate Arab regimes would be swept away.
Meanwhile, former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton, now at Oxford, is offended by the anti-American sentiment of "peace demonstrators":
"I bristle at these suggestions. The idea that anyone believes America would enter into this conflict capriciously boggles my mind, and the notion that the United States is acting without regard to the Afghan people is offensive," Ms Clinton wrote in the US magazine, Talk.
Maybe someone ought to tell those uppity Brits that if it wasn't for the good old U.S. of A, they'd be speaking German now, so just shut up and toe the line.
