Subject: Accept a quiet return or call them kidnappers, pirates, aka terrorists
sofa    3/31/2007 9:14:40 AM
Does it serve our interests to quietly accept hostages back? Or is that a victory for Iran? I propose that Blair/Bush must clearly refer to them as kidnappers, pirates, and terrorists - now when it matters (not after the fact). "Persian Pirates". The return must be a public defeat for Iran. Not a victorious defiance. It's hard, but weigh 15 lives against enabling a major victory for piratical terrorism.
