U.S. Airmen banned from London
Their commanders have told them not to go inside the M25. Their civilian relatives are being strongly urged not to go into the city. How absurd. I thought that those comments about British stoicism in the face of terrorism were horribly clichéd, but the hysteria of the American military in England reminds me how much truth there is in that cliché. I do wonder whether the British are all that stoic. Really, I think it's just that we Americans are wimps in comparison.
