    Pirates/Iranians.....yeah I say lets end the problem permanently. But I doubt the Brits could handle all of the Iranian Navy.

    Are you kidding? While they would not do it in one fell swoop as the 5th fleet could easily do, the Royal Navy would make short work of them.

    They only have a total of 11 active Ships. Do you think they could do it with only 11 ships. Which they wouldn't send all 11. Maybe 5.

    This seems to be a great way to start a shooting war
    According to two US officials... well, that settles it. When do we start the invasion?

    So now we can trust anonymous US officials whispering into the ears of some CNN reporter? Good to know.

    Ahahahahah…..I can just see the Brits Naval Captain telling his superiors and his superiors telling the Brits Defense Secretary. If you don't believe me....just ask the Americans.


    But hey.....smart powers by Iranian defenders.

    You start stuffing straw into that argument, I'll get your Iranian Flag pom poms dry cleaned.
    People who enter the US without our permission are illegal aliens and illegal aliens should not be treated the same as people who entered the US legally

    They also brought in more Royal Marines. Well trained in boarding operations.
