AP - Iranian naval vessels on Friday seized 15 British sailors and marines who had boarded a merchant ship in Iraqi waters of the Persian Gulf, British and U.S. officials said. Britain immediately protested the detentions, which come at a time of high tension between the West and Iran.

If the Brits were in Iranian waters then Iran has the advantage and lets pray they hand the sailors and marines over graciously, safely and quickly.

If the Brits were in Iraqi or International waters and the Iranians don't hand them over then Iran needs its a*** kicked big-time.
That's definably a provocation, but I think it also means that Ahmedinajab is truly worried about these new UN sanctions, the timing of this is not a coincidence.

Still I am curious of what the British will say about this...
Just saw the video of these troops on the news... blindfolded and sitting in the hold of a ship from the looks of it. They were 7.5 nautical miles out, international waters by international law as they are not an archipelago and have no outlying islands. Abominaldinajad must have found his nuts.
