England/Scotland Split Averted--For Now

Earlier today 55% of Scotsmen & lasses voted to remain part of the United Kingdom.

So Britain is still Great, but for how much longer?

Maybe not much longer, especially since political upheaval after the Scottish vote.

Other commentators, like The Diplomad and Mark Steyn also have a pessimistic outlook for the continuation of a United Kingdom.

Despite my deep Celtophile feelings, I'm glad the United Kingdom is still united, despite the troubles that may lay ahead.  America needs allies in a world that's becoming increasingly unstable.  Great Britain has been our closest ally for nearly three generations.  A fractured UK could be a crippling blow to our foreign and military affairs efforts.

Provided that is, we don't cripple our own efforts first. 

Because here, on this side of the Atlantic, Obama's "Iraqization" of America is still going great guns--and will be for the next two years...
