    The Americans are neat and tidy, while the British are evasive and do not want to take responsibility. For such an important strike, the drone operator hired two newbies and shot a missile with tears streaming down his face.

Is this still the United Kingdom that tried every means to drag the United States to bomb areas at night during World War II? Oh, no.
