Ministers Seek Deal With Iran For Release Of Captives

"Ministers are preparing a compromise deal to allow Iran to save face and release its 15 British military captives by promising that the Royal Navy will never knowingly enter Iranian waters without permission."

Note: They're 'captives' not hostages.

Or as the immigration treason lobby likes to call criminal illegal aliens - undocumentd entrants.

And, why pray tell should Iran have the opportunity to save face for a boldly executed premeditated act of war? Iran has simple goals, distracting the world from the question of their nuclear weapons and securing the return of their agents who were captured in Iraq.

This just points out the bizarre nature of the Geneva Conventions. The bad guys just don't have to play because there are no consequences of just doing what ever they please.

Iran has never experienced consequences for their actions. This has always been justified by pointing to the possibility of "Moderates" fixing the situation. As long as I have been an adult nearly 30 years this same canard has paralyzed the West into inaction against the most egregious behavior. I just don't buy it anymore. Each time they don't pay an overwhelming price for such adventures, they see it as God's support for their evil. Whats the point in feeding that monster?

What else can they do? There is no U.N. backing to invade Iran, and Britain will never do anything without that.
