#1 The British are no longer what they used to be. The only person left from the days of old who could effectively possibly deal with this is Queen Elizabeth II who is in her 90's.

#2 And possibly Prince Harry.

#3 If they're not returned quickly - if they in effect become hostages, and a standoff results that lasts, oh, I dunno, let's say... 444 days - then this will likely help Trump's re-election.

He need not solve the UK's problem - that's up to them - but he can use this as a foil to get independent voters to recognize the danger that smelly little islamists pose to us, both abroad and at home. Can't wait to see Ilhan Omar's tweets.

#5 Don't worry the EU has your back. All those stand up guys from Germany, France and Belgium.

#6 It's the Brits' problem. Let them solve it. They, France, and Germany want to get around sanctions and play footsie with the MMs, then let them deal with these psychos.

We stay out of it.

#9 Yes, convoy time and damn the torpedoes. I hope / suspect (but it is a faint hope) that the Brits will nuke the bastards.

#10 Sink every fastboat that comes within a mile of any tanker.

#11 PM May just called President Trump a racist.
He should tell Britain “good luck”.
