When your oldest, closest ally asks for support in a territorial dispute you should:

A) Support them
B) Vote Present

As you would expect Barry O chose option B. Now if Gordon Brown had a pair, he’d phone up Obama and tell him that due to the deteriorating situation in the South Atlantic, his military advisors are recommending the withdrawal of half of the British troop contingent in Afghanistan on short notice for redeployment to the Falklands to drive the point home that a few words of support for Britain is a small price to pay for all the military and diplomatic support this country has provided in the War on Terror. Unfortunately, Brown’s either not smart enough, or too much a coward to put the screws in.
