UK captured marines, whose fault?

March 30, 2007 4:44am CST
What do you think about the 15 captured British marines in the Iranian water? And now the world is pressing Iran to release them. But honestly, looking at the incident, whose fault do you think it is? The British marines have no right to be there in the first place, for whatever reason. How do the British felt if for example a French troop barge full gear into the country? I think what the Iranian do now is fair and just, and people should learn their lesson. What do you think?

the american and the british government doesn't play by the rules, they themselve make. they are posing iran as kidnapers, when they themselve captured iranian diplomats in iraq. they are reminding the days of american hostage crisis when they were kept for 444 days in iran, while forgetting tht they kept the whole iranian nation as hostage under the rule of shah. they talk about geneva convention while they violate it in guantanamo, in abu gareb and other places. what moral stand do they stand on to equate the things. they made it a media hoax while it could be solved and treated on diplomatic fronts. they are just arrogant powers who only feel that every right is there and other humans are of lesser value than an american or briton. i wasn't really surprised by their moves given their past.

I completely agree with you. They always play the double standard. I wander if they dare to pick a fight with Iran..., after all that problem they had in Iraq which was a much weaker country.

"Every kind of peaceful cooperation among men is primarily based on mutual trust." Taking revenge on each other does not change anything but makes it a more hopeless mess.However, in the deepest of my heart,I'm in sympathy with Iraqc.In my opinion, the double standard played by the american and british goverment poses the biggest threat to our world peace.It's an exellent example of "The might is right",and strongly condemned by the international community.I'm on Kamran's side that there is no lesser value among hummanes.All cratures are equal.

first of all, the soldiers were kidnapped while on an opperation in Iraqi waters, illegally by an illigitimate raigime, i think they will very soon regret such a flagrent transgretion of international law. Iran needs to realise that when she startas messing with grown-up countries, she will get the kicking she has deserved for the last 27 years my god show mercy on the millions of Iranians who will surwely die simply because of the stupidity of its own government blessded be

If a boatload of iranian spies were found off the coast of the United States, they would most probably be blown lo pieces. Im just tired of the double standart. The Anglo-Zionist alliance can do anythign they please and cry baby, but the rest of the world has to act like docile fools. Not that I like Moslems. I think all Monoteists should be reradicated, but fair is fair.
