    Kinda interesting, considering the Iranians held Brits hostage awhile back:

    It's what should be done. The pic at the link is also good. That is why we are different than they.

    Those six Iranians where exposed to our much superior technology and equipment. It wouldn't be good for the Iranians for such stories to be spread amongst the ranks.

    As usual, we did the right thing. We will receive no credit for it and will eventually be despised for it.

    Wonder how our media will eventually spin it?

    Kinda like the marine motto: No better friend, nor worse enemy.
