Disappointment in the war party
Here's a link to a recent piece I did for Antiwar.com, on the outcome of the British-Iranian hostage crisis. What struck me was how disappointed certain people seemed to be that it ended peacefully and there was no opportunity to lob bombs or send in special forces. Naturally that led to people suggesting that the British Lion has become an appeasing pussycat for handling the situation in a reasonably sensible manner.
