What Would The US Have Done? We Got Our Answer

With the hostage situation of 15 British Royal Navy personnel continuing today, we wondered what would have happened had this happened to US troops and what reaction would there currently be?

Well now we know.

Thanks to a comment made by Lieutenant-Commander Erik Horner, the US would have fired on the Iranian Guard if they were in the same situation. He added he was 'surprised' the British Marines had not defended themselves.

Meanwhile the former First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir Alan West made clear what UK rules of engagement were, ' very much de-escalatory, because we don't want wars starting''.

The truthiness blog says ; Because they don't want wars starting, hmm, perhaps the US should try that for a few years, see how different things turn out.
