This can’t be good news

Reading the report of 15 British sailors being held by Iran fills me with foreboding.

While it is possible for navigation to go wrong, I can’t believe that our Navy would had just wondered into Iranian waters in the current political climate. The other option is that Iran has moved into Iraqi waters to capture British troops, it all looks too much like the start of a Tom Clancey novel for my liking.

I hope that this is nothing more than a simple “misunderstanding”. I dread to think of what might happen if it is not!

  1. Hmm … What might happen? Obeisance to the Iranians would be my guess. Let’s see.elliottjoseph.blogspot.com/2007/03/budget-small-print-defence-spending-cut.html

  3. Elliott,That’s an excellent post about the budget (Defence cuts) on your Blog, I urge everyone to read it. Why we are cutting the Defence Budget when we are deploying our forces around the world in greater numbers?Our Navy is weaker now than it has been for along time and Iran knows this. If we have to use force to get our people back it could become embarrassing.
