Big brass balls watch

Now that Iran has freed the 15 British sailors and marines they never should have taken hostage in the first place, they're looking to Britain for some quid pro quo. Specifically, they'd like help in getting their spies and saboteurs back from the US and in persuading the world to look the other way while they build nukes.
An Iranian official has called for Britain to respond with a gesture of good will following Teheran's release of the 15 Royal Navy personnel.

Rasoul Movahedian, Iran’s ambassador to Britain, said Teheran wants help to secure the release of five Iranians captured by US forces in Iraq and to ease global fears about its nuclear programme.
This is how Tony Soprano might operate. You know..."So, I do ya this one ting, and maybe someday, you do someting for me, capish?".

Maybe it's just me, but I'm thinking the response should be a rather loud "sod off!".
