British military forces seized by Iran

I have to confess that when I heard that these people were seized for violating Iran's waters my first thought was "Super!".

I like that the AFP, where this permutation of the story is from, puts quotes around the word "Routine" in relation to the actions these people were doing, i.e. boarding Iranian vessels and searching them.

No doubt in twenty years we'll learn that this was an intentional provocation, like the Gulf of Tonkin incident.
