UK Embassy staff members arrested in Iran

Overreach?  Time will tell.

David Milliband,  the foreign secretary, responds:

Miliband, speaking from a meeting of EU foreign ministers in Corfu, said the government was “deeply concerned” at the arrests. “This is harassment and intimidation of a kind that is quite unacceptable,” he said. “We want to see them released unharmed.”

Miliband said he believed nine local staff had been detained, although some had since been released. “We have protested in strong terms, directly to the Iranian authorities, about the arrests that took place yesterday.

But lets get back to more important matters, like what killed Michael Jackson and who will get custody of Blanket.

  1. David Milliband is a huge appeaser of radical Islamists. Check out his response to the Mumbai massacres earlier this year.

    “India trip

    After his India trip in 2008 post Mumbai attacks, David wrote in an article- “Resolution of the dispute over Kashmir would help deny extremists in the region one of their main calls to arms, and allow Pakistani authorities to focus more effectively on tackling the threat on their western borders.” This sparked an angry response by Indian government as its been India’s long stand of not accepting any third party in the dispute of Kashmir. Some also suggested that his tone implied that he was suggesting that India had it coming because of its policies in Kashmir. Miliband was accused of ignoring the complicated history of Kashmir problem, its origins and the role of Pakistan in implementing terrorism.Some reports also said that Miliband’s tone towards the Prime minister of India and towards the finance minister were aggressive, and that he was excused for being a young man.”

    This reminds me of the fools who think that people in Waziristan will love us if only the Palestinians did not have to go through checkpoints.
