Britain: Iran seizes 15 sailors, marines - Yahoo! News
and I should note that the British sailors were investigating suspected smugglers in Iraqi waters under the request of the Iraqi government at the time this happened
Ohhh man... They're in deep now.
if they're so big and tough why don't they try that shit with US sailors?
we could trade WMD's for the troops back, then invade them
They might as well have. We are very much behind the british.
Aparently we recently captured a few members of their guard including a captain, so they are kidnapping a few of ours, not doubt to "teach us a lesson" as well as gaining a nice bargaining chip to get their own troops back.
It may work.
wow...lets just wipe them off the map...lol
and the UK responds
FOXNews.com - Iranian Vessels Seize 15 British Navy Personnel in Iraqi Waters - International News | News of the World | Middle East News | Europe News
And the response is.....
... Weak as hell. "What would Israel do"
star a 3 week mortar/ air campaign that ends in a terrorist emboldening UN resolution
007 is gearing up.
I hope realise what you're saying here. It's exactly what the UN did to Syria to protect Hezbollah.
I know and Isreal agreed to it
It begins... if those sailors are harmed at all...watch out.
Can you say first strike?
the UK could mop the floor with them while we hold down Iraq, I'm sure Israel would help too. Our British buddies act like they like the EU, but if you piss them off they're just as liable to attack as we are
I <3 them
unfortunately we're not really holding down iraq
and i think iran would be even more of a challenge
I don't think my previous posts have really gotten through.
In a war in Iran, we win it completely by air. With the reserve forces that we currently hold. We have ordinance and pilots available to do this.
It's not a great way to fight a war, but Iran would make a clear mistake fighting us while we were in Iraq. We're backed into a corner - not because we're threatened and maxxed out in military strength - but because we're too busy to deal with them properly.
I said this before, with 5 seawolfs the US has the ability to lock down the planet.
