Americans Take To Twitter To Voice Frustration Over 10 U.S. Soldiers Captured, Detained By Iran

Let me guess: This Iranian capture of 10 of our soldiers, Barack Obama is blaming this on guns as well. “If our Navy didn’t have an obsession with weaponry, Iran would have never acted like they did!”

From Associated Press:

Iran was holding 10 U.S. Navy sailors and their two small boats that drifted into Iranian waters with mechanical problems. Iran accused the sailors of trespassing but American officials said Tehran has assured them that the crew and vessels would be returned safely and promptly.

The sailors were expected to be transferred to U.S. custody Wednesday morning local time.

Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook told The Associated Press that the riverine boats were moving between Kuwait and Bahrain when the U.S. lost contact with them.

U.S. officials said that the incident happened near Farsi Island in the middle of the Persian Gulf. They said some type of mechanical trouble with one of the boats caused them to run aground and they were picked up by Iran. The sailors were in Iranian custody on Farsi Island at least for some time, but it’s not certain where they are now.

Check out the video report:

The Iranians holding 10 of our sailors who drifted into their territorial waters is symbolic of Obama’s presidency. Off course and adrift, while not receiving any respect from our enemies. This administration has put our country in terrible danger. I worry a lot about the future of our children and grandchildren. If Obama has established the new normal for this country, it is one of indecisiveness and cowardice!

What has this President done to our military? This is an outrage! Any Iranian vessel near there should be bombed into the stone age. Those men should be turned over sooner than right now or the whole country will be turned into rubble. Enough of this! The President should be removed from office immediately by a special session of Congress.
