hey, America already has the unofficial right to kidnap and intern British citizens, killing them on sight just seems a logical progression.

the first bit is a reference to two a) a recent law passed by Blunkett allowing deportation to America to not require any evidence to be presented, besides proof of identity, and b) the internment of British citizens in the Guantanamo Bay concentration camp.

The last bit was an attempt at irony.

The first bit i didn't know but it backs up the fact that the goveremtn doesn't really care about its citizens when it compares them to america and that we'll bend over backwards for them any day fo the week

overtly, yes.

in terms of the covert / semi-covert funding and support (including arms) for anti-democratic movements that commit huge human rights abuses, then they're pretty much no 1 on the list.

that said, this largely results from the position that america finds itself in in the world, any other country in its position would behave in a pretty much similar manner, that's nation states for you.
