Ghost of Churchill, Edward Longshanks, and Rumsfeld (not a ghost)

Greyhawk had a great post yesterday about a glimpse or two of the Ghost of Churchill. Mmmm. Me? I had more visions of the ghost of “Edward Longshanks” and what his plan would be right now for the English people. It would be a hoot to see him walk into Parliament or walk the streets of London right now, I think he might have a broadsword with him though.

Speaking of London. One of the best quotes coming out yesterday in support of the Brits came from my boss; Secretary Rumsfeld. What a great quote machine.
"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," he said in a statement.

"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."
Longshanks would approve, though he most likely would call it a tad weak.

Hat tip Greyhawk for the flag.
