"We're British we know how to do these things..."

Remember that criticism of the United States when the insurgency first flared up from the British?

Well, at this point, I think EVEN we have managed to avoid this scenario (though I emphasize "to this point"):

An Iraqi judge said on Saturday he had renewed arrest warrants for two British soldiers who were rescued from jail early this week by troops using armor to crash through the prison walls.

The British government said the warrants are not legally binding, as the soldiers are subject to UK law.

This week's violence in Basra infuriated local Iraqi police and government officials, and tensions remained high in the city on Saturday.

Sunnis pissed, now the Shiites pissed.

Civil War, closer every day.
