Iran 'to try Britons for espionage'

There goes any sympathy Britain had for Iran.

FIFTEEN British sailors and marines arrested by Iran¿s Revolutionary Guards off the coast of Iraq may be charged with spying.

All this time I thought the US was going to be the one to attack Iran. I guess I was wrong. Go get your soldiers back.

A website run by associates of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president, reported last night that the Britons would be put before a court and indicted. Referring to them as “insurgents”, the site concluded: “If it is proven that they deliberately entered Iranian territory, they will be charged with espionage. If that is proven, they can expect a very serious penalty since according to Iranian law, espionage is one of the most serious offences.”

And if that happens, you can expect a very serious ass kicking cause in western law, harming our soldiers is one of the most serious offences...unless you're the President, then it's your job.

The warning followed claims by Iranian officials that the British navy personnel had been taken to Tehran, the capital, to explain their “aggressive action” in entering Iranian waters. British officials insist the servicemen were in Iraqi waters when they were held.

Here we go...
