They're what we thought they were

In Ace's headlines we see this story about some Dutch Apache pilots refusing to go below 5000 meters (per orders I presume) to help some Australian, US and Afghan soldiers fighting some Taliban. Heavily armed and heavily armored Apaches. you know, Apache gunships designed for close combat support.
Some of the good guys died in the firefight.

Geoff asks, "Are Dutch the new French?" I'm not picking on him, I've seen some others have the same reaction.
Apparently not remembering Sebrenica where Dutch forces sat on their hands during a lovely massacre because of "orders".
Imagine some US Soldiers or Marines obeying those orders.
I don't see them getting those orders, but even if we let them put on Blue Helmets I'd still bet they wouldn't sit there and let people be massacred.

So are they the new French?
I'll let Dennis Green answer that. (for Bears read "The Dutch")

If your life depends on EUniks fighting for you, well, make sure your will is filled out and you're at peace with your maker.

I put this in Fail Britannia because there's no "Fail Florin" (Fail Guilder?) or Fail EUnuchstan categories and I now know what LLAPH means (Thanks Sean!)

There is no future in England's dreaming

There is so much FAIL Britannia! packed into this article that I'm starting to suspect that it's actually some kind of elaborate Python-esque sketch about the British Welfare State...

Miss Marshall has no plans to start working. She once went to a job centre, but quickly realised she would be financially much better off if she did not work.

'What's the point? My mum worked all her life and she paid taxes so I feel I am getting what I deserve,' she said. 'Some people might think I am a scrounger.

'But I don't think me or my children should miss out on nice things just because I have never worked.' Miss Marshall's children, aged between three and 16, don't appear to miss out.

They all have the latest computers and gadgets, and the family have been on two holidays abroad this year.

My mother raised me to be polite, so I hardly EVAR throw out the "c-word," but I'm sorry, this woman is a fucking cunt. I'm far from the most industrious person in the world, but I at least have a fucking job, and the money I've got these days barely fucking folds. I can't afford to go much further than the next couple of counties over, and she's taking her brood (five kids from four different men, by the way) on trips abroad? She actually has the temerity to complain about the fact that her welfare brats have to share three laptops, too.

That sound you hear is Zombie Queen Victoria punching through her tomb, and she's fucking pissed.
