The West Blinked!

In the game of political brinkmanship you can score one for the Iranians. (Actually two.)

The hijacking of 15 British sailors by Iran was nothing more than a test to see what the reaction in Britain and the West in general would be. Unfortunately we failed miserably.

Instead of a quick and decisive response, the powers that be waffled and negotiated away a top Iranian official that had been in Iraq conducting insurgencies.

Not being able to follow the same "no bargaining, only response" position of Israel, the Western powers emboldened Iran and the end result is that they now feel more confident of getting away with their nuclear program.

As a result, Iran announced today that it is greatly increasing it's development of nuclear technology, confident in the fact the we are just a "Paper Tiger!"
