What diplomacy looks like

Word is breaking all over the news orgs this morning that Iran will release the 15 British sailors detained nearly two weeks ago. The news is welcomed, though I am sure there will be some screeching to the heavens calling the Brits appeasers for not taking the Dubya route and plunging in headlong, guns a blazin'. But as this incident shows, not everything need be solved through military confrontation nor stubborn disengagement. And I suspect that is what has the die-hard Bushbots really freaking out. Couple this with Speaker Pelosi's trip to Syria as the ever mounting evidence that Bush and his brand of governance is sinking further into irrelevancy.
