ROSCOE’S Weak-End Review

Iran ‘to try Britons for espionage’

A bad moon is risin’, folks.

The penalty for espionage in Iran is death. However, similar accusations of spying were made when eight British servicemen were detained in the same area in 2004. They were paraded blindfolded on television but did not appear in court and were freed after three nights in detention.

Well, yeah, they were released after confessing their transgressions and apologizing on camera. It’s that kind of pusillanimous response by the West that encourages sociopaths like Mahmoud “Mojo” Ahmadinejad to try this kind of stuff.

Now we're reading ominous news reports that these 15 Brit sailors have "confessed" to transgressing Iranian terrotorial waters. Any civilized person would have to be concerned that these individuals already have been subjected to things not exactly in accord with the Geneva Conventions. Or else the Iranians are just lying--which seems to be their native tongue.

The question is which Britain we’ll see step up to the plate: The stiff-upper-lip Britain that went to war to take back the Falkland Islands in 1982. Or the linguini-spined Britain of 2004 that allowed itself to be humiliated before the despicable Iranian thugs.

Read all about the current humiliation here.

Not that the U.S. of A. is any great shakes these days, either. If we had any cojones we’d be prosecuting Nancy Pelosi for treason for engineering the Iraq pullout move in the House that is giving immeasurable aid, comfort and encouragement to America’s enemies.

Stay tuned for developments...
