Lack of gratitude

The statements of "peace activists' freed in Iraq. Not a word of thanks for the Coalition forces who risked their lives to free them nor a word of condemnation for those who brutally murdered their fellow captive. Their willful blindness to the evil around them brings to mind Lenin's characterization of the Fabian Socialists: "useful idiots"- which is probably how the insurgents see them.

I'm not sure why but this reminded me of a coal mine collapse a few years ago. The miners were rescued and thanked God to no end on national TV but never mentioned their rescuers once.
