Appeasement?

I saw this headline ‘Three Hostages Held in Iraq are Freed’ and was nervous for a moment that Turkey had cut some deal with the terrorists to free their hostages. Well, it turns out that a deal was indeed made but it wasn’t the Turkish government making it. A Turkish company has agreed to stop doing business with the U.S. military in Iraq. I don’t know what to make of this. It’s appeasement, definitely. But, it’s a private company and so I feel they can do what they want. I do worry about the message being sent and I worry that the employees of other companies in Iraq have more to worry about than ever.
