The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

It's not the size of the Royal Navy, it's the size of Britain's balls that's the problem.

Is the Royal Navy too small to deal with Iranian threat?

Tobias Ellwood told The Times: “The threats we’re facing are changing in front of us, the world is getting more complex. If we are wanting to continue to play this influential role on the international stage it will require further funding for our armed forces, not least the Royal Navy. Our Royal Navy is too small to manage our interests across the globe.”
The issue isn't the size and reach of the Royal Navy; it has been shrinking for years. The issue is that the United Kingdom has been emasculated by its elites, who would rather kowtow to the maniacal SJWs and cultivate voting blocs within immigrant populations than defend the culture and history of their country. The result is a country without a core; one that is unwilling to defend itself even in response to a direct and obvious provocation from a country that is reeling from sanctions and is lashing out at the world. The UK could easily mount a small military operation that would send a clear signal to the Mad Mullahs that pirating British ships is not a winning plan. A few cruise missiles (they still have them) into Iran's oil infrastructure, or even into their military command and control would be sufficient.

Yes, this sounds suspiciously like the now thoroughly discredited neo-cons of 20 years ago, but sometimes it is appropriate to meet provocation with force. Nobody has bloodied the Iranians' nose (except Israel) in many years. It is time to remind them of their position in the world.

My English isn't as good as sooper-genius-Joo-hater extraordinaire Tlaib, but this sounds suspiciously like "if they're not happy here, they can leave." Only worse.
