Surely Diego Garcia is part of the British Indian Ocean Territory.

The Brits wouldn't allow unsavory activities on their land. It wouldn't be sporting.

your reaction only goes to show how good our pr is.

Our behaviour over the years leaves a lot to be desired, and the governments secrecy over its multiple hypocrisies is something that even Bush never dreamt of emulating.

Quite bragging...you had such a head start...but you have to admit that we jumped in with a full result in Iran for you and have been working very hard ever since to emulate your grand hypocracies.

I don't know about "...never dreamt of emulating." Reagan's puppeteers were certainly willing to sell cocaine to their own countrymen to get money for guns...while, no mater how many millions were addicted in the English/Chinese Silk trade, they were always foreigners.
