Iran Releases Hostages

Iran has released the British sailors taken over a week ago. I know I'm going to raise the ire of the bomb-Iran crowd, but, while the Iranians using the hostages for propaganda purposes was inexcusable, I noticed a conspicous absence of hoods, piles of naked prisoners, or wires connected to the genitals in any of the pictures of the hostages.

Anyway, this will mean a drop in oil prices, at least temporarily. The Russians are convinced we will attack Iran this Friday, and I suspect our original intention was to, so as not to disrupt the markets, but with the cat out of the bag, I don't think it will happen for at least a week.
