And the uk version of events is somewhat based on fact..:
1)the global positioning device
2) the statement of the Iranian foreign minister changing the location of the incedent
however i accept that number to may have been a technical error however i don't think the UK would risk it's reputation to forge a GPS, although i would also like to see Iran's version of events.

and no it doesn't sway me because (like i said) the GPS doesnt lie: 1.7 (or something like that) miles inside of Iraqi waters isnt Iranian waters.

They claim they'll only release them if we admit that our nazy ship was in there waters even though it wasnt.
I think its making the situation alot worse and we may end up attacking
i think in some ways Iran is asking for a fight (not because of this situation - but it isn't helping).
UN Secutary General and Presidency of the EU are also asking for the release of the crew, they must listen to the international community.

The way I see it, is that these navel men and woman are gonna get back to the Uk one way or another.
A. Iran hands them over nicely, everyone calms down.
B. Iran dont hand them over, and it becomes NATO, EU, UN Security Council Vs Iran.
I agree, Iran already has had sanctions placed on it, i dont see why it would want more?
