BREAKING: Iran invades Iraqi Waters, abducts 15 British Sailors

Nope, not a joke. Real stuff. Via PJM:

SHOWDOWN IN THE PERSIAN GULF: Iran Naval Vessels Seize 15 British Servicemen in Iraq

It is stupid because it is an assault on the UK and EU - not the US. Therefore there will be little media or liberal sympathy. It was in Iraqi waters, which is the equivalent of an invasion on land over a border and capturing soldiers.” (Strata-Sphere)

“Doin’ what Iran does best: taking hostages.” (Allahpundit @ HotAir)

Fifteen British sailors and Marines are being held by Iranian forces. They were taking part in a routine operation boarding merchant ships in Iraqi territorial waters when they were seized by Iranian naval vessels. The sailors and Marines had completed a successful inspection of one ship when the group and their two boats were surrounded. They were then escorted by Iranian vessels into its territorial waters.” (Sky News)
