    U.S. Navy rescues Iranian Sailors.

    This will throw a spanner in the works of the Iranians propoganda war.
    No Link because I just saw it on TV. Actual footage of the operation and of Iranian Sailors Hugging U.S. servicemen.
    A strike force from the carrier group that was recently threatened by Imadinnerjacket has rescued 13 Iranian Sailors held hostage by Somalian pirates.
    No shots were fired and no one was hurt.
    It seems the Somalians are learning that if the Yanks say "give us that boat back" there are only two possible outcomes.
    You give the boat back or die.

    I wouldn't worry, Koojo, if Ohoh doesn't like the facts, he invents his own.

    There's this version, quoting an Iranian official:

    "The rescue of Iranian sailors by American forces is considered a humanitarian gesture and we welcome this behavior," Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast was quoted as saying by state TV's Al-Alam Arabic channel.
    Then there's the Revolutionary Guard version:
    Iran's hard-line Fars news agency had a different take, calling the rescue operation a Hollywood dramatization of a routine event.
    Then there's the OhOh version which bears no relation to reality whatsoever.

    ^^^Ok not film, more a "reality" show.

    Look at the original thread, which included this news item, and you will read my praise for the naval commander who obtained their release from the "pirates", and sent them on their way, in their own fishing boat.

    Not sure why a second thread is required but hey, it's up to you hansum man.

    ^^ AH, I remember reality, when you believed what your mum and dad said, your teachers said, your priest said, your politician said, your boss said; then the drugs kicked in and the light went on. Which reality is the best then Harry, fox, JP, telegraph, best murdering of Muslim video on ytub, BBC, CBC, ABC, channel 7, AJ, PressTV, RT, CNN, the watchtower, Xhamster, teakdoor ........the variations are endless.

    Personally I scan as many as possible, and read between the lines. It isn't difficult to extract the BS you'll find added to a story by, say, Fox at one extreme and Press TV at the other.
