They just got a different tool to use than we do: They kill innocent lives to achieve objectives. That's what they do. And they're good. They get on the TV screens and they get people to ask questions about, well, you know, this, that or the other. I mean, they're able to kind of say to people: Don't come and bother us, because we will kill you. Bush - Joint News Conference with Blair - 28 July '06

Cash for honours stories

Most probably Neo-Labour authorised the sale of the 'hostages' story because it was a good diversion away from the real story - which is how the hapless Brits came to be captured in the first place, and given that the former 'hostages' could be relied upon henceforth to refrain from ever saying again anything in the slightest bit positive about Iran or Iranians they could be roped into serving the overarching past present and future British-American government policy of 'meddling with Iran' . A media soaked with stories of Iranian brutality/torture/inhumanity must have seemed attractive to Neo-Labour, and I guess they thought allowing the 'hostages' to sell their stories for cash would have populist appeal. They got it all wrong, fantastic.
