Iran Takes New American Hostage

Three things.

1. The US should take a hard line against its citizens traveling to Iran. That’s for their own protection. An American in Iran is a potential hostage. And since we haven’t yet mastered the Rooseveltian art of declaring, “Perdicaris Alive or Raisuli Dead”, we’re vulnerable.

2. Iran is testing us. Failing that test would be dangerous and will mean an escalation of violence on other fronts.

3. One potential trigger for this may have been the planned withdrawal from Syria. That doesn’t mean the withdrawal is wrong, but that Iran may see it as a capitulation, even though it has nothing to do with Iran, and may be probing to see if we’re vulnerable now.

That’s how terrorists operate. And that’s why it’s important to forcefully push back when they do.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
