Will Iran use American tactics?

One of the big things since we last visited is Iran’s seizure of 14 British sailors, apparently inside Iranian waters. To put it bluntly, this is a mess and we had best all hope this is not an omen of things to come.

It is reported that the Brits admit being outside of Iraqi waters and that Iran plans to file charges. Without getting into the finer points of international law, I think we all ought to consider, first, that England has been a staunch ally of the United States in this ill-advised adventure and surely deserves better. We all ought to remember exactly who it is that we are dealing with.

While Iran is probably not an international menace, a certified nut is in charge over there. Yes, even nuttier than the other buffoons and medieval tyrants that hold sway in that part of the world. What if Iran decides to use torture? What if Iran says that despicable tactic is justified because we do it at secret bases around the world. What if Iran should get their grubby bloodthirsty hands on American service personnel?

How would you feel about your sons and daughters being mistreated, and it being justified because of a misguided and stupid American policy? There is plenty of reason to worry and it would seem that things are getting worse fast.
