Britons released ? Why now ? Because of Pelosi !!
My blog ^ | 04/04/2007 | drzz

Posted on 04/04/2007 6:53:21 AM PDT by drzz

Why is Iran announcing the release of the British soldiers ?

Why now ?

Last Sunday, Iran told the AEIA that it would not let the UN inspector see some parts of the iranian nuke programs. Yesterday, the AEIA claimed that Iran had multiplied its current capability by 3 since the hostage crisis began.

Iran tried to take US hostages on January 20, 2007 in Kerbala, Iraq. The mission failed, and the Revolution Guards slaughtered 5 GI'S.

Iran hoped to make pressure on America, and is still hoping that America won't bomb the country when Iran will expell the UN inspectors from the country.

The visit of the House speaker Pelosi to Syria, close ally to Iran, gave the mullahs the impression their strategy had worked.

That's why they will release the Britons hostages today.

The Axis of Evil thinks America is weak and not prepared to fight even if one her ally is in difficulty.

Because of Pelosi, Iran is more optimistic and is about to lauch a big - BIG - war this Summer, against Israel using Hezbollah and Syria and against the USA in Iraq by sending new iranian troops in Iraq.

Brothers, for Iranians, Pelosi's visit means America surrenders.

Pelosi has committed an act of sedition. She should be prosecuted when she returns.

I believe these theories are all wet.

No doubt Nancy’s visit makes great propaganda for the Syrians and no doubt it hurts Bush’s and thereby America’s policies, but I see no way to attribute the release of hostages to Pelosi .By the way I wont believe the hostages are released until I see them released.

Achmeddickjob said he would return the 15 sailors as a gift to the United Kingdom. I suspect some back channel diplomacy told him we would then consent not to deliver our gift from this:

I suspect that the released Iranian diplomat held by "iraqi terrorists" in Iraq a few days ago was part of a bigger behind the scenes deal.
Wait a few weeks for a few more Iranians being held in Iraq to be returned.

I daresay the Iranians realized they had bit off more than they wanted to chew, and Blair was firm but calm about the whole thing. Much like the China Plane incident and the Bush administration back in 2001, many freepers will consider this some sort of defeat, rather than a triumph of diplomacy.

It is absolutely a huge public relations defeat for the UK and the West. In the eyes of the the entire Islamic world, the Iranians have stood up to the Little Satan of the UK and the West.

It is great that the 15 are going to get out, but unless there is a swift and severe air attack on Iran, this is a total loss.

How many times did Carter win the release of our hostages before they came home after Reagan took office?

Iran said to the AEIA that it won’t release some important informations about its nuke program anymore.

Iranians want to aweaken the “hawks” among the US administration and strenghten the “doves”.

Sure Pelosi’s visit has something to do with the release.

I’m sorry if you don’t see that, but Iranians do. I visit every day websites of Iranian dissents, and they all say the same.

Ahmadinejad try to divide the US, to promote the Dems way of thinking instead of the Bush’s. The Dems way will permit Iran to have nukes. Bush will never do.

That’s why it is happening right now.

Because it is defeat to bend over when your own people are being unfairly used as pawns and not to show that you would more than willing to destroy their country over one citizen is weakness. That is strength and reduce the chance of a follow up or copycat from another country. The Brits wallowed on their stomachs and knees to get back their folks.

With the Muslim world, ANY action is a triumph for their side. If you use diplomacy, they say you are weak. If you try increased pressure, they call you a bully. And if you bomb the heck out of them, they play the victim and everyone on the left (plus the EU and the UN) calls you a warmonger and ramps up their protests and "hate America" junk, while a bunch of NGO's run over to the Middle East and give them aid.

I assume that the reason the Blair (and Bush) didn't choose door number three is that they have other considerations right now. PR is not particularly high on their list, given the level of vitriol already running amok in the Arab world.

Do I have this right?

The Brits were unarmed and their rules of engagement wouldn’t have allowed them to defend themselves?

Oh, and they were not in Iranian waters anyway?

Perhaps the threat of all the world's treadmills hooked up to generators to power our TV sets gave Arabinutjob a reality check. As it is, technology is coming to make the Arab world high on oil revenues one huge reality check.

What other considerations? The war in Iraq is nearly lost due to the Democrats. The general WOT is still in play and Iran is the biggest player in that war. They just challenged us and we came up small. Now, like I’ve said previously, if the UK/US retaliate after getting the 15 hostages back, they can redeem themselves. If they let the 5 Al Quds Iranian special ops guys go, our government are weak failures.

Iranians may be dumb, but they’re not stupid. They know what Pelosi’s doing, and they will not mistake her actions for the OFFICIAL American position. They’ll try to play the Dems against the Republicans, as they always have, and the media may even buy it, but when it comes down to it, the Iranians know what the policy of the US actually is.

Do you think the first visit to Syria from a top member of the US administration is not seen as a sign by Iranians ?

A sign of a change of strategy ?

Now Pelosi can claim that it was her superior international diplomacy that brought forth the release. It will help her build a power base for a run on the White House in 2012.

Frankly, I'm getting tired of the 'let's turn the whole Middle East into a sheet of glass' claptrap. We have the chance to turn some things around there, and as you said, being a bully about it with the entire populace doesn't help one bit. You have to be selective who you pin against the wall. There are a very few who actually have power in Iran, and we shouldn't punish regular people for the idiocy of the mullahs and folks like Mr. Iwannajihad.

The Iranian people are not the same as their leaders. There are some who are tired of being held in the Middle Ages by the mullahs who rule the place, and the secular leaders who do their bidding. It helps no one, to bomb indiscriminately.

If Iran gives up the hostages without Britain giving up anything - how is that a "defeat" for Britain?

To me (and to the Arab world) it will appear that Iran has capitulated to Britain & the US - not the other way around.

If Iran keeps or executes the hostages - THEN it will appear they have "stood up" to the West.

I don't understand your logic.

“If Iran gives up the hostages without Britain giving up anything - how is that a “defeat” for Britain?”

Getting the hostages back is a victory. However, Iran violated international laws by going into Iraqi terriotorial waters and kidnapping people that were carrying out UN and Iraqi mandates. They also paraded and forced “confessions” under duress, which is agaist the Geneva Convention. The Brits were correct to get their 15 back within reasonable concessions, but only if they retaliate (likely with US help)strongly against the illegal provocation.

I completly agree.

Iran shows that you can threat a neighbor to “anihilate him” (Israel), kidnap soldiers of a western army, kill them (US soldiers in Kerbala) and violate UN resolutions without being attacked.

Look at Syria : they killed Hariri, gave weapons to Hezbollah, killed Gemayel, but this b***ch Pelosi is still “negotiating” with Assad.

If Al-Quaeda were a State, we would negotiate with it.
