    First they release the US sailors who (in what looks like a pretty amateurish display of seamanship) strayed into Iranian territorial waters - and then this. Under a Republican president these matters might have dragged on for years and the Iranians would probably have ended up with a nuke too.

    As President Reagan used to say, "Now there you go again," this time lording it over us on the high seas. Yes, the RN is good, but we've given them their fair share of lickings waaaay back when. And, don't get me started on the Kaiser's High Seas Fleet, Beatty-Breath.

    Nonsense. I'm talking about small naval craft straying into Iranian territorial waters in the 21st century. I mentioned in another thread that the RN did something very similar in 2007 (though you would have hoped that they and the USN would have learned from that mistake).
