I predict that they ultimately will. Why? Because they have a history of appeasement. After WWI many English people thougt that it would have been better to have appeased the Kaiser in 1914 instead of rushing to the aid of Belgium thus saving millions of lives. When Hitler came along the natural response was to appease. Let him have Austria, Chekoslovakia, who cares. Not another war. Thank God for Winston Churchill. Is England, as well as the U.S. willing to fight this war the way it has to be fought? With grim ferocity and cold unconcern for legalistic niceties? (Who cares if a few Korans get flushed down the toilet. What else is it good for? Broken air conditioners at Gitmo? Dont get me started.) Are we willing to lay waste great territories and their peoples, innocent and guilty alike, to level cities, to burn forests and divert rivers, to smite our enemies hip and thigh, to carry out summary execution of captured leaders? Of course not — how barbaric! Shall we fight this war Clinton style? They bomb an embassy and we bomb an aspirin factory? If we are not willing to respond ten-fold to their cowardly acts and make them realize that when they kill innocents in our country innocents will lose their lives in theirs then what's the point? If we here in the United States are not willing to fight a war like that then dont be surprised when our allies cut deals with the enemy like Spain did.
