Didn't really want to start as thread as my attendance in this part of the forum is somewhat irregular. But I couldn't see one already about it. If you havn't figured it out by now I'd like to talk about Iran capturing 15 bristish sailors/marines and holding them prisioner. Heres the BBC's version for those intrested. Personally it seems to me that Iran is acting a lot like a terrorist organisation more than a country, taking hostages and releasing confessions, even having one of the soldiers write to the UK goverment saying they should remove troops from Iraq. Who do they think they're kidding? The UK goverment doesn't seem to be putting down much of a hard line about it, nor admitted guilt aplogies and moved on (not so popular but if thats the case then so be it). It seems they're being a bit wishy washy with all the wait and see mentality. I reckon that had they been US marines then there would be M1Abrams rolling all over the Iranian countrside about now, heavy handed maybe but definatly not taking no crap.
