Robert McNeill: It’ll be no tea party if Sarah Palin gets in

Surely, it can only be a matter of time before American and Britainshire invade North Korea?

I don't have a problem with this, as I believe in forcible regime change and the imposition of freedom on countries who don't want it.

After Iraq, we should have gone into Iran, North Korea and any other joint ruled by what, objectively speaking, can only be considered nutters.

The only real problem will come if America elects Sarah Palin as leader. Then it will become incumbent upon Britain to cross the Atlantic and invade the States.

That would probably be a long, drawn-out conflict, but we all know that wars make the world a safer place, except perhaps for those involved in them.

People are the first casualty of war, and that's the truth.

I personally would be willing to serve but, unfortunately, have a bad knee from playing five-a-side football. Also, I have lost my reading glasses.
