save our soldiers [Apr. 3rd, 2007|03:52 pm]
8 or so bees in my bonnet
[music |rrf - the faux cinema ep]

a lesson in diplomacy:

of course our glorious leaders
attempted to make some political capital
out of a grey area gps arguement

and our tabloids attempted to whip up
indignant jingoistic nonsense

out of a misunderstanding
of course iran has no particular beef with britain
but i can imagine a scenario where she might be petty

oh and thank you george w
for waying in with your "genius hostage comment"
that really helps.

please shut the fuck up.

and rememember

every obstacle is an (photo)opportunity...

Do you think the confessions were genuine, or made under duress?

I think I came down with that when I went to Sweden last year. I couldn't keep anything down! ;)

I *rarely* find myself in agreement with GWB on *anything* but I do agree with the "hostages" characterization. Even if it's unhelpful, it's accurate, since there certainly seems to be the expectation of a quid pro quo. I can't help but find this tactic distasteful, no matter who employs it.

Good Info

Yeah it's a buncha nonsense, and never is anything what it seems. The US, Britain and Israel and their respective intelligence agencies constantly plot to insure they get what they want, and im sure all three were involved in getting these soldier's captured as well. Another ploy to make Iran the bad guy and justify an attack. Hopefully it won't work.

Anyway i found this article online and liked it, so y'all might be interested as well.
