Record of Shame

Caroline Glick puts it well:

The footage of the British hostages thanking Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his hospitality and forgiveness, like the footage of US Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi covering her head in a scarf while on a visit to Damascus was enough to make you sick.

Frankly, none of the western world has much to be proud of when it comes to standing up to thug-state intimidation. The problem is that a culture that's too afraid -- or morally relativistic -- to defend itself can't survive, and perhaps, doesn't even deserve to.
