Re: British soldier shown in Islamic dress

It’ll be interesting to see if Mario is right.  Richard North at EU Referendum clearly doubts it.  I’ve always held to the theory that the modern British react in a laid-back, even nonchalant, fashion to national insults until a line is crossed and they react with patriotic zeal.  We’ll see if that’s the case here soon enough.

Meanwhile, some interesting analysis from the BBC and The National Interest, and an emphatic rejection of the idea that the rules of engagement are inadequate from a “senior military officer.”
