The hostage situation

"Tony Blair is looking ....alarmingly like Jimmy Carter, the embodiment of the soi-disant ‘superpower’ as a smiling eunuch."
Mark Steyn brings his usual incisive clarity to the Iranian hostage situation.

The hostages are British. So what is Britain doing? Nothing.
The hostages are also European. What is the EU doing? Nothing.
The hostages were on a U.N. sanctioned mission. What is the U.N. doing? Nothing.

Actually they’ve all been yakking and making ‘stern’ pronouncements of ‘grave’ concern, etc.

The Iranians must be quaking in their boots.
