Iran siezes 3 British vessels
« on: June 21, 2004, 04:23:58 AM »
not much info on this yet MOD and the foreign office don't know much, Iran reported it on arabic tv they arrest 8 sailors too who apparently say they made a mistake entering their waters. the Iranian waters is kinda unclear you can see the iran coast from iraq, british and american ships are on the iraq side. i think this is more of a political move than anything to do with their nuclear facilities

iraq would just get annexed by iran


That would be a great solution.  If Iran and the majority of Iraqi's are pleased with it, then why shouldn't they do it?

'Three UK vessels seized in Iran'
Iran has seized three British navy vessels that entered its territorial waters near the Iraqi border, according to an Iranian media report.
Eight British sailors on board the vessels were arrested, Iranian naval sources were quoted as saying.

A report on al-Alam satellite TV news said the arrests were made on the Shatt al-Arab river that marks the boundary between Iran and Iraq.

The sources told the TV station that weapons and maps were found on board.

The Ministry of Defence in London said it had no information about the incident and was looking into the reports.
