London Takes It As A Compliment

Stolen shamelessly from Michael Totten because it made me laugh out loud. Besides, Totten is doing a bang-up job of blogging Iran's struggle against the fascist mullahcracy.

Doesn't it make you almost burst with pride? For decades, we have got used to the idea that we are a dowdy middle-ranking sort of country that long ago abandoned any pretensions to influence east of Suez. We thought we were wholly dependent on America for our nukes and our cryptography--and here's this top mullah who seems to think that the Tehran protests are being staffed by swarms of burka-wearing Bonds, and that the whole thing is being orchestrated by Dame Judi Dench from her lair on the South Bank.
