We have all read, seen and heard about the 15 British soldiers who have been captured by Iranian forces after they allegedly entered Iranian territory. Of course the Brits says that this has never happened and that the soldiers was inside UN boundaries.
Now Iran has an old conflict with Mesopotamia concerning this area, so they do not quite agree on these internationally set boundaries. Anyway I love how the Iranians answer to the British pressure.
We have heard over and over again the last 6 years the line "We do not negotiate with terrorists". This line has been used to start several wars, and arrest some couple of thousand peoples without verdict. Mr. Putin is especially found of this line after his buddy, Mr. Bush, told him it it was a perfectly good excuse to stop those bloody Chechen's for claiming their independence.
But now the Iranians have learned the western way of negotiating.
The Iranian president, Mr. Ahmadinejad, is quite good in his propaganda effort. He might be a bastard and claim that all Israelians must die, according to western media. This claim might work well inside Iran, but it's not so popular for the western public. But he manages to play a dual role in his propaganda effort. Every time he goes abroad he dresses up in a suite, he speaks perfectly good English, a lot better than me, and he has incorporated the tricks of western propaganda.
So what does he say when the Brits claim they will make a stop to Iranian business and give him a good old nuke if he don't behave? He uses the good old statement which we all have known to adore:
"We had a policy for 27 years not to give after for extortion."
Thats a state of the art western propaganda line which everyone has learnt to understand as correct and meaningful. It's actually just the same line as the Brits have used against IRA for the last 60 years or so.
What Mr. Ahmadinejad do by making this statement is to poke Blair on his shoulder, slowly raise the middle finger, and gently whisper into his ear "Up yours..."
And then he sing this song all the way home:
