    Iran released some of the British
    Iran releases 'some British Embassy staff'


    Unconfirmed reports of gunfire by the Basiji on the protestors at the mosque today. Confirmed reports and videos of the police beating women.

    Um, I never said I have the slightest clue how a Mite Force works. If it'll make you feel better I don't even know what a Mite Force is.

    I don't have to take it from you, I can take it from history. We have never just jumped in, helped someone for a day, and then left. We always hang around, get too involved, get a bunch of our people killed, and so on.

    How many times do I have to tell you there aren't any freedom fighters? There are protesters and they do not want our help!

    Crazy, you say! Why wouldn't they want our help, you ask?

    Simple.

    They don't trust us. The opposition party doesn't trust us any more than the current regime.

    If they took assistance from us and won, they look like a puppet. If they took assistance from us and lost, they lose so much face they can never make a comeback. Not only that, but our assistance immediately puts a clock on everything, because they'd want us gone ASAP. If they do this alone, they can work at their own pace.

    At least if they do this their way, without our help, they can always run and resist another day.

    Okay, but we often stay for way the hell to long, and when's the last time we did a simple in-and-out in 24 hours?

    Mite Force.

    Yeah, maybe in a perfect world.

    Hey, Scorpion89, is this the kind of "Mite Force" you were talking about?



    How about this?



    Wait, wait, I'll get it right this time:

    Let's stay with what we know and that is that the Obama administration was going to "sit down" with the Iranians before their behavior became worse. I also will remind everyoen of the truth and that is that president Obama did extend a hand but it was bitten as if the Mullahs and there pet dog the make beleive president are behaving like a pack a rabid dogs.

    Methinks the UK will have to respond in some way to this.

    It will be interesting to see what they do.

    You are nuts.

    And on OP: I wonder how Britain will respond to this open challenge ....

    Maybe Brittain will lead the way this time?
