Iran Budges

Posted by Ryan on April 4, 2007

Mahmoud has decided that the 15 hostages are to be released from Iranian custody and not face trial. After two weeks the hostages will be eventually going home. Unfortunately the larger message here is that Iran has tested the resolve of Europe and Britain and concluded that they lack the gumption to stand up to them. Iran has laughed at them for 14 days. Yet, Blair gets to avoid being the new Jimmy Carter, and the US battle fleets are still in the Gulf waiting for Iran to get stupid again with the wrong people. I think the forces of good in the world lost out on this one because when Iran decides to get aggressive again, the precedent has been set for a long, delayed, arduous process of face-saving nonsense with these jerks.

San Fran Nan’s Dance

Posted by Ryan on April 4, 2007

Despite the Administration’s requests and a dose of common sense, San Fran Nan met today with the leaders of Syria, an increasingly isolated state sponsor of terror whose friends include Hamas, Hezbollah, and many insurgents in Iraq.  Meeting with the enemy is nothing new to Democrats. By conducting her own personal foreign policy with aggressors in the face of her own country’s interests, Pelosi joins the ranks of other Democrats who sided with Communists back in the day.  Rush dug this piece up on his show yesterday regarding the Democrat’s cozy relationship with the Sandanistas while Reagan was trying to defeat them and other communist sympathizers back in the 1980s.  The Dems were embarassed then too as appeasement never does seem to work for long, especially when you put yourself in a position where your enemy gets more of your respect than your President.
