In a Confrontation between the UK and Iran...

...can Speaker Pelosi decide whom to back?

H.Res. 267 condemns the Iranians and establishes Congressional support for the British, but Pelosi has so far shuffled it to the bottom of her list of things to do this week.

The whole world is watching; let's hope the Dems can steel themselves to take a tough vote against piracy. At the very least, they ought to be able to put a resolution together faster than the U.N., unless it's their position that the U.S. House of Representatives cannot form an opinion absent the blessing of Turtle Bay.

UPDATE: Too late. The U.N. has officially beaten Pelosi's Congress to the punch in expressing objections to Iran's action. The U.N. is now officially more hawkish on Iran than the U.S. House of Representatives.
