Strollin' Johnny BS: Sailors kidnapped by Revolutionary Guard (601* d) RE: BS: Sailors kidnapped by Revolutionary Guard 01 Apr 07


"One thing for certain, Iranian 'honour' is not something to take lightly"

If Iranians had the slightest trace of honour they would not allow themselves to be led by a band of religious-lunatic arseholes, in turn led by a scruffy, unkempt, lying, religious-lunatic arsehole, towards a nuclear arms race which they can only lose by.

The commander of HMS Cornwall acted to orders, Dianavan. The British Navy does NOT run about like a band of wild-west cowboys, firing off rounds at anything that moves. They are a highly-trained and disciplined force. His reaction during the incident was governed by standing orders which take into account the politics at play out there at the moment, and by a very high level of training. Your comments suggesting that he somehow failed show how little grasp you have of what really goes on, and how easy it is to be a smart-arse when you're sitting safely and comfortably out of harm's way in British Columbia.
