    Default Oh Shit - Iran Seizes Two US Warships

    Edit - never mind, a bunch to do about nothing probably.

    The initial news feed made it sound like a much bigger deal.

    I don't know, it seems unlikely that they drifted all the way into Iranian waters, and while one Iranian news source is saying our soldiers were 'rescued,' another Iranian news source, Fars News Agency (both according to CNN), is saying they were 'arrested.'

    CNN is also saying that they won't be released until daylight in Iran, which means they will be in Iranian custody during the State of the Union Tonight.

    The other thing I would say is that the administration has reason to downplay the issue considering the President is supposed to tout the Iranian deal in his speech tonight. There is incentive not to muck that up too much right now.

    yeah..kind of reminds me of the old Letterman bit "is this anything?" You kind of look at the report and it might be something, but then they play it down and use words like "rescue" and say the Americans will be "released shortly"...which makes you think.."released" from what? Then you hear that they are "taken into custody". Custody?


    hmmmm Is this anything?

    The couple interviews I saw of them being held in that hotel looking room, they were talking like someone was pointing an AK47 at them. I understand being nervous, but they seemed pretty damn scared to me. Certainly not guys that were just waiting to get back to their ship

    Our troops ended up in Iranian waters and left Iran alive and promptly...on that front it is a win for diplomacy.....and the dropping of sanctions that returns a boatload of cash to Iran..something like 100 Billion in frozen assets ...at least Iran will take a big hit in that oil prices are far from where they were when sanctions were first imposed

    but what about Jason Rezaian, Pastor Saeed Abedini, former US marine Amir Hekmati, and Robert Levinson ( OK he was a CIA operative but he's been held for what? 10 years now?)

    where's the big diplomatic push to release them?

    now that sanctions are lifted, we missed a huge opportunity to get these people back

    Our missed opportunity was in 1979.

    Release our citizens held by your state, or we go to war and kill every last one of you fanatic nut jobs.
