Do the right thing for the Iroquois, Britain!

"An American Indian lacrosse team that refuses to accept U.S. passports will not be allowed entry into England for the world championship of the sport the Iroquois helped invent, the British government said yesterday," according to the Associated Press.

The Iroquois' own passports have not yet been fulled upgraded to a new, higher-security version, the explanation goes.

The chances of these lacrosse players turning out to be secret terrorists hoping to blow up Albion seem quite remote to me.

Change your mind, Great Britain. Do the right thing. The Iroquois (Haudenosaunee)have been a nation since long before there was a United States or a Canada.

I completely agree with you ECD. The First Nations people should be able to use their Status Cards as passports.

I am fully behind you on this. In fact, I would be on the cheer leading squad for Team Iroquois if possible. Maybe the British are afraid to get scalped (on the field of course).

Perhaps if countries took a closer look at their foreign policies there would be no need for such ridiculous rules and regulations that have cropped up since 9-11
