Iran takes British Sailors Captive

Story: "Fifteen British Navy personnel have been captured at gunpoint by Iranian forces, the Ministry of Defence says. The men were seized at 1030 local time when they boarded a boat in the Gulf, off the coast of Iraq, which they suspected was smuggling cars.

The Royal Navy said it was doing everything it could to secure the release of the sailors and marines who are based on HMS Cornwall.
They were said to be carrying out a routine patrol in Iraqi waters.

The Ministry of Defence said: "The group 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.

"We are urgently pursuing this matter with the Iranian authorities at the highest level.
"The British government is demanding the immediate and safe return of our people and equipment."

We went to war back in 1812 because our sailors were being pressed into duty by the english. This is defiantly cause for war with Iran.
And not just for this reason, but for the continued hatred of the west, and for being a haven of Terrorism. This nation is, after part 2 of the Axis of Evil.
I hope the sailors are safe, but this is well neigh a declaration of War on Irans part.
