Iran

Apparently they think it's a good thing to tangle with the US Navy? 

Last week shooting missiles near an Air Craft Carrier Group with little warning...  now taking prisoners.

Trying to test Obama - it seems

Taking prisoners? Did you read the article? It stated that they were having engine trouble and drifted into Iranian waters and that the vessel and personnel would be released.

Two Navy boats, one disabled, simply do NOT drift into Iranian waters.

Sorry, but I cry bullshlt. If one was disabled, the other would TOW it to safety.

There's a LOT more to this story.

But don't worry. John Kerry is negotiating with the Iranians. We're in good hands.

When it's all said and done, Iran will keep the two boats, the 10 sailors will be converted to Islam and live the rest of their lives in Iran, and for this wonderful deal we will only owe the Iranians an aircraft carrier, four B2 bombers, and Oregon.

It takes that long to release people?   Did you read they were turned over to the Hard Line group of the Military?   
I'm guessing its an insurance policy for their billions now

Besides we all know how reliable some initial intel can be...  but maybe they were watching a video and drifted off course...  I'm sure one of the vessels had a rope and could have towed the other - until the Friendly Iranians showed up to assist and detain.

Good news it appears the sailors and their crafts have been released.

Maybe the new moderate president has better control over the radical clerics after all!

Well since I need to come up with an over the top reply I'll just say that in the case I described above would happen with any of the current Republican candidates at the helm, they would declare it an act of war and immediately nuke Moscow.
