I was thinking of making a cartoon showing the vast British armarda surrounding the iranian boats as they "detained" the British sholdiers to poke fun at the British ROE.  The Iranians picked their targets wisely ... had this been Americans i doubt that they would have come away with anything.

I will bet that at some time the Brits will take out the Iranian Boat base at the mouth of the river if the Iranians don't give up the troops.

Well yeah that Iranian "fast boats base" is certainly a traget should a war break out.  Another target is  the Iraqi oil platforms that are about 2 miles from Iranian territorial waters.  Both are sitting ducks.  A naval battle in the Persian Gulf is not something the British would relish.
