British Royal Navy Crew Repatriated

The fifteen Royal Navy crew members who were taken hostage on 23 March 2007 have been returned to the United Kingdom.

Unfortunately, in my opinion, the whole incident has been a great propaganda victory for Ahmadinejad and Iran, and a major show of weakness by the West. If this worked for the Iranians, there is no reason why they wouldn't be willing to try it again in the future, and possibly for greater stakes.

The return of the British crew is the only good news stemming from this debacle.
