…we’re not afraid of any damn iranians.

apparently before those British sailors were taken custody of by the Iranian navy, they tried to pull the same trick on an Australian Navy boarding team, with (much) less success.

 “…the Australians re-boarded the vessel they had just searched, aimed their machine guns at the approaching Iranians and warned them to back off, using what was said to be “highly colourful language”.  The Iranians withdrew, and the Australians were reportedly lifted off the ship by one of their own helicopters.”

I would totally have liked to see that in person.
