From 'War for an ear' to 'No war for fear'

Great Britain: It's called "Great" not out of a lack of modesty but to differentiate if from Lesser Britain (Brittany).

Anyway, assuming it was because it was great, how should the world look on Britain's reluctance to use strong words and/or force against a state that kidnaps its people? I refer readers to the War of Jenkin's Ear for some context.

As someone said on Radio 4 yesterday, whoever thought that Blair would be accused of being afraid of going to war!
