From the Wall Street Journal:
U.S. officials confirmed Saturday that they secured the release of four Iranian-Americans as part of a prisoner swap.
“We think this is a very good day. We’re very pleased these Americans will be coming home,” a senior U.S. official said. “We believe they were unjustly detained. We are better able to resolve these things when we have diplomatic channels.”
Don’t ever try to understand the other fellow’s view;
for that is rank diplomacy, and something to eschew.
Haven’t all the talk show barkers, the movies, and TV
convinced us yet that gun play is the wisest policy?
Sitting at a table talking wastes both time and money;
you shoot more flies with pistols than you ever can with honey.
Results come from bold action; GI Joe is the primary
way to deal with ev’ryone — and not that wimp John Kerry!
