Lost their bottle?

“But these figures do seem to seriously undermine the slur that the Spaniards
lost their bottle after the bombs and decided to cave into Bin Laden.”

What a great insult: ‘Ah, you’ve lost your bottle.” I assume it’s origin is in a sentence like “Oh, poor baby! Did baby lose her bottle. Here here, let me help you.”
