British Foreign Secretary Margaret a Beckett has roled up her sleeves and weighed in on the kidnapped British sailors issue. Mrs Beckett has confirmed that a British diplomatic note had been sent to the Iranians. "I think everyone regrets that this position has arisen. What we want is a way out of it – we want it peacefully and we want it as soon as possible."  Baaaaaaaaaaa.. !

Meanwhile, a group of some 700 peace loving civilised people staged a brief demonstration in the Iranian capital Friday against the U.K. and the 15 U.K. sailors being held by Iran. Leaving Tehran University campus after Friday prayers (What better time?) the protesters "spontaneously" walked a few hundred meters down the road chanting "Death to Britain!" and "We condemn the British invasion!"

  1. Baaaaaaaaa..!

    There is only one thing to do with something that makes a noice like that….
    …kill it and eat it.

  2. Britain’s "response" to this whole situation has been nothing less than pathetic. Sooner or later the west is going to have to deal with Iran in the only language they understand. We have been presented with the perfect justification to do just that but instead we are politely asking the Iranian lunatics to play nice.

    What a shambles.

  3. >>CAMP DAVID, Maryland (CNN) — President Bush on Saturday called Iran’s detention of 15 British sailors and marines "inexcusable behavior" and called for their release, referring to them as "hostages."

    "The Iranians took these people out of Iraqi water," said Bush, speaking at Camp David with Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. "And it’s inexcusable behavior."

    The 15 have been detained in an undisclosed location in Iran since March 23. Iran claims they "trespassed" into Iranian territorial waters. Britain denies the claim.

    The U.S. government had been notably quiet on the subject from the beginning, but Bush voiced strong opinions Saturday.

    "The Iranians must give back the hostages," he said. "They were innocent. They were doing nothing wrong. And they were summarily plucked out of water."<< via CNN

  4. He also reiterated Becketts preference for a ‘peaceful solution’. And refused to criticise Blair when questioned if the US would react differently.

    Seems Bush at least follows Thatchers line of not openly criticising a governments policies even if he is a ‘bit’ late 🙂

    "I strongly support the Blair government’s attempts to resolve this peacefully," he said, referring to British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

    "I support the prime minister when he made it clear there were no quid pro quos. The Iranians must give back the hostages. They’re innocent," Bush said.

    End of the day only fools would rush in here.
