what the situation in Iran really is about…

supposing some Iranian navy crew gets lost in the Atlantic and gets ‘kidnapped at gunpoint’ by the British, will the Iranian government issue letters where they call for ‘immediate and unconditional release’ of the Iranian persons ‘held in captivity’?

supposing all this gets reworded, using much less assertive language when it comes to less-than-assertive news, then it would sound very much logical and sense-making: “British navy patrolling the seas around Iraq were thought to have crossed over and stepped on the territory of Iran, at which point the men were arrested and transported to Tehran awaiting an investigation. Stay tuned!”

videos of the men in captivity talking on camera, smoking, smiling, being in good health and issuing statements would and should not horrify anyone. Images of decapitation of people are the kind that horrify people.

so why exacerbate the situation with Iran by essentially questioning their every single step and painting their actions with a layer of suspicion? Unless… Britain is carrying out a sinister build-up to a war with Iran!!! Stay tuned!
