An easy way out of the hostage controversy

I've been struggling to make sense of the Iran hostage situation but Craig Murray has cleared up a lot of my confusion and offers a very sensible solution.

Short version: The whole incident stems from an imaginary boundary line that has long been in dispute. Both sides should simply acknowledge that they acted in good faith and without evil intent, the hostages should be released immediately and steps should be taken to finally draw an agreed upon line between the terrorities. No political points would be made for any side, but everyone would win.

Makes sense to me.

the problem with ahmedenajd is he doesn't know when to quit. it's one thing to suggest a hlocaust deniers conference. it's another to actually go through with it and it belabors the point.

we get it, respect territorial boundaries. now let the prisoners go. there are enough problems in the world.

Exactly what I'm thinking Lester. The guy is seriously nuts.
