I wrote about this yesterday, but the sheer quantity of people who are very upset that the British hostage situation didn't wind up providing a pretext for further hostilities between the US and Iran is really remarkable. Here's Krauthammer in the Post, and someone named Yoav Fromer in TNR.

Interestingly, The Weekly Standard, which I think of as the most enthusiastic of war-boosters, has been relatively restrained in its coverage.
