Open Letter to Londoners, and Britons in General

We want you to know we're with you.

We want you to know we're here for you.

We want you to know that we're willing to track these dogs to the ends of the earth with you, and put them out of our misery.

You have been our best friend and closest ally for a century, and we want you to know that everybody that messes with America's friends has a habit of winding up very dead. (If that's any consolation right now.)

We're standing with you today.

We're weeping with you today.

We're praying with you today for the recovery of those in the hospitals, and for those who have lost loved ones.

You've been a true friend through thick and thin, and if there's anything we can do for you, you just let us know.

We've fought many an enemy together. We will continue to fight anyone that would be your enemy.

There were only two times on September 11 where I came close to breaking down. The first was when I watched the second tower collapse, and everything suddenly became real. The second time was when your Queen had the Coldstream Guards play our national anthem. The anthem that, ironically, is about our army beating yours. That song means a lot to me- and never in my life did it move me more than on that day. You redefined "brothers-in-arms" that day.

I was personally very grateful.

I served next to you in Kosovo. It was a pleasure.

I served near you in Afghanistan. It was an honor. I did not see you there- because I was safe and cozy on Kandahar while you were out there in the mountains with our infantry, killing the Taliban.

Our countries have stood side-by-side and fought and beaten everyone from Nazis to Communists to Islamofascists. We could not choose a more honorable or a more worthy friend.

We love you. If there's anything you need, ask.

Be strong. I know I probably don't need to say that, as "British" and "resolve" tend to go hand in hand, but be strong. We're with you.

We're with you.
