  • Didn't notice it was you responsible, I hate that tag and the ugly [1] and [2] you end up with littered through the article. It's just an invitation to go read someone else's story. --Brian McNeil / talk 10:22, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

"Iran's semi-official FARS News Agency reported the same day that the captives were taken to Tehran to explain their "aggressive behavior," and that they had confessed to trespassing into Iranian waters." That is from cnn. Agressive behaviour might be an excuse even outside territorial waters? I feel sympathy because i have myself just been harrased by military in uniform i guess. anyway i just want to put forward that blairs quoot suggest the person writing the article , wants iran attacked. Since there is no comment on the legal absurdity of Blairs statement. I agree with people that say we don't know if there is any excuse, but for Blair that is not a very good excuse, as media need to support his (illegal)view and hide the iranian in a few bottomlines.80.57.243.16 18:25, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

It should really be added that Brigadier-General Hakim Jassim (commander of Iraq's territorial waters) has said to Associated Press...

"We were informed by Iraqi fishermen after they had returned from sea that there were British gunboats in an area that is out of Iraqi control. "

Whatever?[edit]

The quote thingy says, "... there is absolutely no justification whatever for holding them.". Wouldn't it be more correct to say "... there is absolutely no justification whatsoever for holding them."? And that sounds more like a Blair-ish thing to say. "Whatever" just seems wrong there.

Well we can't go changing quotes just because their grammatically incorrect. Bawolff 05:29, 28 March 2007 (UTC)
