Hostages: Still Iran's "Flavor of the Day"

Update: Sailors confessed! here… They’re off to : Tehran

But what about the (IRGC's) March 18th article!
We have ability to kidnap Americans and Israelis!
“In Iraq, the Quds Force can easily get hold of American — and British — officers,” said a Jordanian intelligence source.
"In an article in Subhi Sadek, the Revolutionary Guard’s weekly paper, Reza Faker, a writer believed to have close links to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, warned that Iran would strike back."

“We’ve got the ability to capture a nice bunch of blue-eyed blond-haired officers and feed them to our fighting cocks,” he said. “Iran has enough people who can reach the heart of Europe and kidnap Americans and Israelis.” full story
Hostages, are Iran's specialty...And it looks like Iran was waiting to make a move...Now, as Iran encourages Iraqi Kurds to partition Iraq...Ahmadinejad should 'watch' Putin...
Update: From Tosted Bread:
They were captured at gun point and blinfolded. There are several
women among them! L.Vorzheva as more info.

-Britain’s positions in the Iraqi water-space
Iran's armed seize of 15 soldiers only adds to the community's:
"Mullah's with Nuke" fears.
More than a dozen British soldiers are
seized by Iranians in the Persian Gulf.
In an area where the slightest factor can trigger reaction:
Hostage fears over troops seized by Iran
Who doesn't know that:
"Ahmadinejad's Regime wants Iraq's immediate breakup, to annex the Iraqi oil at Basra. Ahmadinejad would then use the Iraqi oil to finance joint terrorist operations in the Middle East and South America by Hezbollah and Iran's own Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and the Quds force!" #

And as Ed Morrissey explains...
"This isn't the first time Iran has captured British sailors. In June 2004, they seized three British patrol boats and detained eight sailors." Read: Iran Attacked US Forces In September!

Amadinejad cancels U.N. trip amid visa spat
"I just don't understand," he explains. "We have absolutely no trouble crossing borders with other neighbors...And considering how quickly Nancy pushed the House war measure; you'd think they could've "put a rush on it."

Ah- well"...sighes of relief said Amadinejad... I guess we'll have to send our foreign minister, Manouchehr Mottaki, to address the council"...
"All because of the Americans."

In the old days, Britain would have brought down the wrath of God on these people.

This incident is just one more 'tick' in the ticking time bomb the world has had to endure since Bush and Blair illegally invaded and occupied Iraq.

>brought down the wrath
CUG! Yes, Britain would have... And when the chips are down, they will.
The chips are down, now! (`O`)

The Iranians are trying to make anyone who will listen understand that they want to be a major player in the war. What they did was issue an "Attack Me and See What Happens" challenge! With Democrats feeling their wheeties in congress, it will give them the energy to run away at top speed.

Bush is too Latin America focused right now. What with his attempts to give amnesty to illegals, he's assured Calderone that we will NEVER build a wall on the border. Bush will have to divert his attention back to the middle east.

If he looks east, Bush may act but will be roadblocked at every turn by Democrats.

jrfjr...I agree...and understand your concerns...This is a dividing issue amongst many…

With respect towards a wall: Unfortunately there is much more here, than meets the eye…US relationship with South America and Mexico have a HUGE impact on the safety of America.

The key remains to be a drug enemy, their intent, amongst complicated border issues and the many drug running gangs currently in our country… (Remember the al-Qaeda-style Guerrilla camps with launchers, tanks, and other weaponry spotted to be staged amongst the Mexican terrain?)

They are the same groups which ‘militarily over-powered’ border protection earlier this month… We lost...It was quite a scene. :| It's a "plant has to be cut at the root" problem.

Failure to address issues at their deepest level, is why ANY problem progresses as far as it does... (Iranian Universal Rights not excluded.)
