I was wasting time before heading home this afternoon and came across this interesting little article.

Iran to hit back at US ‘kidnaps’
IRAN is threatening to retaliate in Europe for what it claims is a daring undercover operation by western intelligence services to kidnap senior officers in its Revolutionary Guard.

According to Iranian sources, several officers have been abducted in the past three months and the United States has drawn up a list of other targets to be seized with the aim of destabilising Tehran’s military command.

In an article in Subhi Sadek, the Revolutionary Guard’s weekly paper, Reza Faker, a writer believed to have close links to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, warned that Iran would strike back.

“We’ve got the ability to capture a nice bunch of blue-eyed blond-haired officers and feed them to our fighting cocks,” he said. “Iran has enough people who can reach the heart of Europe and kidnap Americans and Israelis.”


“The capture of Quds members in Irbil was essential for our understanding of Iranian activity in Iraq,” said an American official with knowledge of the operation.


Military analysts believe that Iranian threats of retaliation are credible. Tehran is notorious for settling scores. When the Israelis killed Abbas Mussawi, Hezbollah’s general secretary, in 1992 the Quds Force blew up the Israeli embassy in Argentina in revenge.


“In Iraq, the Quds Force can easily get hold of American — and British — officers,” said a Jordanian intelligence source.

Not particularly threatening at the time but look at it in the light of the recent "apprehension" of Royal Navy "spies" in the Shatt-al-arab waterway.

Wow, that IS kinda scary.

It is a major problem when these islamo-fascists repeatedly tell us what they are going to do before they do it and still we do nothing to stop them. When they scream death to America, America needs to respond with death from above.

I haven't blogged much about the UK soldiers abducted in international waters by the Iranians. I don't know how else to see this than as outright act of war. This was a military attack on the UK, a NATO nation and close ally of the United States. Maybe these are just hollow words, or maybe I have just got it wrong, but I thought that an attack on one NATO nation was an attack on all NATO nations. Why haven't the NATO nations jointly invaded Iran and freed first the British soldiers, then the Iranian people?
