Boycott Scotland?

The Americans seem to have been getting a bit hot under the collar about the Scots' decision to release al-Megrahi. There have even been calls to boycott Scottish goods and Scotland itself in a kind of bizarre retaliation. Remember Freedom Fries?

This website makes a few observations.

Abdel Baset al-Megrahi did not show his victims any humanity or mercy, so why did Scotland decide to show him any? How can we possibly show these terrorists that we will not be intimidated if we continue to be better than they are?

The bombing of Iran Air Flight 655 Pan Am Flight 103 was a courageous cowardly act deserving of the Legion of Merit no mercy.

And so on. Good stuff.
