    Dear Mr Spook

    thank you for opening this new thread.

    Accorsing to the BBC website it is indeed true.

    I am not sure what the Iranians hope to acheive from this and the mvoe seems rather counterporductive and foolish. lets see how events un fold.

    hahaha

    oh em eff gee

    Ahmedifruitcake is the equivallent of a really bad CEO running his company to the ground. what on earth is he (or his military commanders) thinking ???

    it would be really interesting to know what the Iranian "street" is saying... what would you feel like as a regular working class Iranian if you saw daily headlines about an international boycott and a potential war?

    I think he was saying that Iran should not have/did not have the right to detain the soldiers, even if the troops were illegally in Iranian waters.

    we all care, because they are people. We all are people, we live in a society that exists only because it strived to unite people.

    Good. Piss-off the one moderate power that's in the mideast right now. What a bad mood.

    It was done on purpose.

    War is needed by many.

    I'm very fucking suspicious of this story. They say that Iran pulled up in "inflatable boats"? This has the stinch of Black Ops to me. Israel wants Iran gone, and they'll do anything to drag the allies into their war.
