    Secretary Kerry has a solid personal relationship with the Iranian Foreign Minister from the recent negotiations. has a solid personal relationship with the Iranian Foreign Minister from the recent negotiations.
    Secretary Kerry thanked them for treating the sailors well. What a disgraceful event..the sailors on their knees with hands on their head and filmed. So weak this president is. A national disgrace of weakness. The sailor who apologized might face a court martial. Prisoners give name rank and serial number only

    I heard a military guy call Hannity and tell him most militarys treat any military the same way Iran treated these guys for drifting into their waters.
    I don't think the ship belonged there.

    Who said anything about starting a war over this incident? And where does Isreal come to play? IMO our government handled this very weakly.. Don't think they are telling us the whole story.. Maybe they will wait a few years and make a movie about it..

    Now what if the shoe was on the other foot? Let's say for instance the US Coastguard or Navy handling a similar situation in US waters? Should we expect a crippled Iranian vessel to go out heroically with guns blazing in US waters? Would it be viewed as weakness if they were boarded by the US and detained until we found out why they were in our waters? Would we not disarm them and treat them as hostile invaders?

    Kerry praising Iran over the episode is an insult to the sailors who were demeaned
    if the shoe was on the other foot they would be warned of being in US waters and towed out to sea to an awaiting Iranian vessel or drowned if necessary

    I don't believe they would be paraded all over state TV and the internet.. There is more to this story and IMO we will never know the truth..

    Dumb? I don't think so
    Iran's Revolutionary Guard would rather drown then submit to US armed forces. Fine. Then drown them
