This is Not Good

For the Iranians that is.

The Ministry of Defense has said that fifteen Royal Navy personnel were seized today by Iranian naval warships in Iraqi territorial waters in the north Arabian Gulf.

The personnel were said to be conducting a routine inspection in the area, when they were surrounded by an Iranian vessel and escorted to waters controlled by Iran.

The Foreign Office said that Iran’s ambassador in London had been summoned and Britain was demanding their immediate safe release.

The MoD said the incident happened at around 10.30am local time. “The boarding party had completed a successful inspection of a merchant ship when they and their two boats were surrounded and escorted by Iranian vessels into Iranian territorial waters,” a spokesman said.


I am willing to bet there are several SAS (Super Army Soldiers) already en route to get those sailors back.
Note to Iran: You just lost your Navy.
