inb4 Obama apologizes
This has nothing to do with luck fuck off, the Navy made a mistake it ended up some where it shouldn't have been and they were rightfully detained. they were released today and the soldiers apologized for the mistake and said they were treated like guests.
>soldiers apologized for the mistake and said they were treated like guests
yeah, the soldiers will most likely get discharge. you don't embarrass the US like that. that's captivity training 101
Reminds me of the navy folks that got caught by North Korea years ago. Although those ones were flipping the North Koreans off and gave fake names that were swear words. Took the norks a while to catch on to the Americans insults
As someone who grew up in a military family, the US military can handle the job of humiliating itself quite fine. Ask literally anybody who lives on or near a base and they'd have plenty of great anecdotes.
Someone said that the Iranians took photos of every square inch of those boats and kept the GPS an a few of the classified technology pieces like Comm and Surv Gear on the same an they would probably sell and send them to China. Like they did with parts that drone that crashed 5 years ago. Ideas? Thoughts?
Ezra Lavant had an interesting take on this. He points out that the Iranian boats in the video are rinky dink pieces of civilian shit compared to the American gun boats.
The Americans could have easily made swiss cheese out of the Iranians or out run them.
I'd wager that they were ordered to surrender and hand the boats over to the Iranians.
