    I don't think England will admit to anything, Iran released a statement claiming "proof" that the sailors were in their water:

    And the Brits replied:

    Supposely, Blair did not appreciate this nor the Irani's parading around one of their hostages on TV today:

    They're wearing the UK's patience thin.

    I wouldn't admit to anything if I were a powerful nation. I know that when entering the Gulf you see Iranian fast boats and small frigates on patrol. They just want to be respected. I believe once Britian says enough already and gets ready to bomb the piss out of Iran will they back down and release these troops.
