Lament of the Derb

John Derbyshire outdoes himself:
“15 British Agressors [sic] must be EXECUTED.” That was the placard being held up by some beetle-browed Iranian outside the British Embassy in Tehran. Well, I don’t entirely disagree. I certainly think that those British captives who have let themselves be put forward on Iranian TV, that woman wearing a headscarf, and the young man apologizing to the Iranian gangster-rulers, should be court-martialed for dereliction of duty when they get back to Blighty, with shooting definitely an option.

How on earth can Britons behave like that? A previous generation would not have done so.
What has happened is multiculturalism. The British no longer feel that contempt for other nations that sustained them for so many centuries.

Apparently Derbyshire will be happy if the Iranians just go ahead and execute the hostages, as he thinks those soldiers are spineless and unBritish anyway.
