British Sailors to Be Released

It’s about time. It was a very Cold-War style of confrontation. Iran (the USSR) illegally seizes some Westerners. There’s posturing, semantics, and propaganda. Then they’re released, and the deal the West quietly made to allow their release slips under the radar.

I’m sure Blair called Bush and asked for the 5 Iranian Quds members in custody to be released in exchange for the sailors. We’ll see that come down the pipe soon enough.

No surprises for me. We can expect to see similar behavior from the Iranians if we seize more of their operatives in Iran. Now that we know they plan on kidnappings for hostage release (a move they’ve taught Hezbollah), we should be more careful near the Iranian border and shoot-first, ask questions later.

All the latest can be found everywhere on the Internet, but I think you’ll find a succinct version posted by AP at HotAir.
