The Bookworm Room linked to this from Melanie Phillips. Ms. Phillips is a Brit who shares in the belief that the West may have sunk to low to pull itself from the “miry clay.”(Psalm 40)

When so-called fighting people haven’t the stamina to resist at all I have to ask why are we wasting so much time money and young lives? We obviously don’t have the intestinal fortitude to go it alone; That’s why we are so concerned about what the Eurowusses think. Why not just return home with our tails between our legs – as the Pelosi Democrats want – and wait our demise wallowing in the cowardice they make so evident.

Ms. Phillips says:

First the sailors allowed themselves to be taken without a fight. Then they abased themselves before the genocidal Iranian regime and – notwithstanding the duress we now know they were under – behaved subsequently with an astounding absence of decorum and propriety which set the seal on Britain’s humiliation as a senile and toothless lion. Now we learn that they are to even be allowed to tell their story in the media, with the express permission of a defence high command which, in granting such exemption from the normal rules, grotesquely linked the behaviour of these 15 grovelling sailors to British heroes who were in receipt of the Victoria Cross.

The Iranians now know from this debacle that they can make trouble for the west with impunity. They can take hostages, smuggle arms into Iraq, blow up British soldiers and even go nuclear — and no-one will do a damn thing to stop it.

For whatever reason this morning I cannot help but mentally make historical Biblical connections to this event as I alluded to at the start of this post when I quoted Psalms 40:2.

I suppose because of the locale in which this is all unfolding, and to whom the Brit’s were bowing, I was reminded of what Daniel supposedly saw concerning this same Persian or was it Medean empire so long ago. Perhaps he was actually looking not into the near future from his day, but into the far distant future of Britain, Europe and America to our own day.

Dan 2:42 And [as] the toes of the feet [were] part of iron, and part of clay, [so] the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

Dan 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men (read this as Muslims – ed.): but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

The same Bible I got these quotes from says there is nothing new under the sun that all is vanity . (Ecc 12:8 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all [is] vanity).

I think Solomon may have been wiser than we gave him credit for. The vanity of the Euro/Brit wusses in their so-called resolve reminds me of the “dog returning to it’s vomit.” (That’s in the Bible as well – you can look it up).  

I know Pelosi’s recent suckup to Assad in Syria makes we want to vomit.
