2 US Navy boats in Iranian custody
http://www.businessinsider.com/two-us-na...ody-2016-1


Quote:Two Navy boats are reportedly in Iranian custody, according to the Associated Press.

Iran has reportedly told the US that the crew will be returned "promptly."

The Pentagon says it briefly lost contact with two small Navy craft in the Persian Gulf on Tuesday but has received assurances from Iran that the crew and vessels will be returned safely and promptly.

Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook told AP that the boats were moving between Kuwait and Bahrain when the US lost contact with them.

The boats apparently experienced mechanical difficulties and drifted into Iranian-claimed waters while the 10 sailors aboard were on a training mission, according to MSNBC producer Jesse Rodriguez.

Cook says, "We have been in contact with Iran and have received assurances that the crew and the vessels will be returned promptly."

Sounds like a SEAL team got caught with their pants down....

2 boats - 5 per boat --- SOP for a SEAL op....

This sounds like a movie: The Manchurian Candidate 2: Arab Spring.

The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination."

People are overreacting to this (at least on Facebook). They're probably snacking on zereshk polo and sabzi khordan while they trade cigarettes with Iranian sailors and wait for us to arrange transportation. As much of a warmonger as I am, and as much as I'd like an excuse to go blow some shit up, I don't see anything hostile in their actions. They've been quite professional actually.

Relations between the US and Iran have thawed considerably recently (my suspicion is that we just want their light sweet crude oil- cynical me). It isn't in Iran's best interest to molest these guys right now.

The incoming conspiracy theories about this incident should be fun to watch.
