image for Iraqi General Denounces British Effort in Basra
Guarding the Circus from the Hun

With appeasement politics in the news of late, many have found Iraqi general Eden Jabers' remarks about the British forces on Basra timely and a bit ironic.

Jabers was quoted in the NY Times: "The British gave high priority to their own security and were not forceful with cases they faced in the streets."

British commander in Basra, Will U. Getmihowm, denied the Brigadier General's claims: "Any student of UK military history could tell you that if the area of the world is not part of our empire we fight a bit differently. Just ask Adolph...The Sudetenland ...Chechoslovakiawhere? But when a piece of her majesty's pie is on the menu expect Her Majesty's Service to fight to the death. Basrawho? Except for some first rate cricket and football fields due to Allied bombings, we bided our time in this God Forsaken hell hole until we could return to Mumsie and plant some pansies."

Commander Getmihowm warned: "But if the Hun were to invade Piccadilly Circus, he'd be in for the fight of his life!"
