Breaking News: Ho, Boy

Yacht Carrying 5 British Nationals Stopped by Iranian Forces, Taken to Iran

No link yet. Got it.

…”On 25 November, a racing yacht owned by Sail Bahrain and crewed by five British nationals, was stopped by Iranian naval vessels,” reads a statement from Britain’s Foreign Office.

“The yacht was on its way from Bahrain to Dubai and may have strayed inadvertently into Iranian waters…”

I wouldn’t be so sure of a quick release in this day and age.

    Meh. Who cares? Let the Iranians have ’em. Or the UK could grovel some more, try and get them back. Though I don’t really see the point. Surely they have an over-abundance of idiots, eh wot?

    Their pick.

    I think we’re in for some groveling, given it’s the British modus operandi of late.

    Well, sh*t ~ in all honesty? Ours too, lately, thanks to the most apologetic ditherer-in-chief ever.

    Maybe they were headed to Dubai with a giant novelty check, seeking to bail them out, and the Iranians decided they wanted some ‘a’ that?

  6. Gunslinger says:

    I guess the Iranians figured that the Somali pirates shouldn’t have the monopoly on kidnappings.

    I hope they’re not going to wet their pants and hug their teddy bears while crying themselves to sleep like their Royal Navy brethren did.
