Our 400-Year Anglo-Alliance

I am an Anglophile, so I have to post this.

From Iain Murray at the Corner:

400 years ago today...

On May 14, 1607, a group of English settlers landed on Jamestown Island and established the colony of Virginia. In one respect, this means that today is the 400th Anniversary of the Anglo-American alliance, an alliance that has endured revolution, war and distrust and survived. Considering that puts the current problems into perspective.
