So Iran are holding 15 British sailors and marines for “spying”. The UK insists that they were inside of Iraqi territorial waters, and performing routine inspections of shipping.
Now, I know that at one time, more than half of the seas were under the control of “Great Britain”, but excuse me for pointing out the irony of this statement. Are we talking Iraqi territorial waters here? What is a British force performing “routine” shipping inspections in the territorial waters of another sovereign state? Oh, sorry, silly me, there’s a war going on, of course. Oh, and George said it’s OK, so there.
According to the typical American, Iran had better watch their step, and Korea, and Italy for that matter, they could be next. Watch this hilarious clip at YouTube. Scary stuff. Australia could easily be mistaken for Korea and take some severe “collatoral damage”
Oh, and you South Africans, stop sniggering. Remember, we’re big buddies with Iran so we could be next. Dubya could use us as a springboard to effect a “regime change” in Zimbabwe (if only). Who can keep up with these guys. Their “Intelligence” network is everywhere.
Quotation of the Day;
Sometimes I think that the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the Universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.
