Union Jacks

I went to the PX over lunch to score a Brit flag to hoist up the pole at Castle Argghhh! I am pleased to report that the vendor there sold out of his stock - but has more arriving tomorrow.

Well, I really do already have a flag.

This One.

One with a lot of *steel* in it.

Update: While I'm not a complete fan of Rumsfeld - on this, great minds think alike:

But if these terrorists thought they could intimidate the people of a great nation, they picked the wrong people and the wrong nation. For generations, tyrants, fascists, and terrorists have sought to carry out their violent designs upon the British people only to founder upon its unrelenting shores.

Before long, I suspect that those responsible for these acts will encounter British steel. Their kind of steel has an uncommon strength. It does not bend or break.

Though technically - the bayonets *do* pass a 'bend test' - they're supposed to bend - they just snap back...

Guess I'll just have to use that flag. I can think of worse reasons to take it down from the wall. And I don't think the Arms of Empire will mind all that much, frankly, if that flag snaps in the breeze for a bit.

Might as well save some server space and reuse this post:

Some Muslim condemnation of the attacks. Good to see. And with no waffling, either. H/t Pandagon
