First of all, thank God that two more of the South Korean hostages are safe. Michelle Malkinhas the latest. Predictably, the Taliban now expect the South Koreans to put pressure on the US and Afghan government to release their goons. So much for good will gestures. I don't think we'll see the release of any more unless our side caves in. The question now becomes how much time are the Taliban going to allow for negotiations before they get impatient, and what are we willing to do to save them?
Michelle phrases it this way:
"Appeasement begets appeasement. Will that lesson be remembered?"
