Iran gives medals for capture of U.S. Navy soldiers

Of course they did.
Earlier this month Iran captured U.S. Navy soldiers in their boats in the Persian Gulf. Iran released our soldiers amidst praise from John “I served time in Vietnam” Kerry. He said, “we can all imagine how a similar situation might have played out three or four years ago.”

Reuter’s reported yesterday that Iran’s supreme leader awarded medals to navy commanders for capturing U.S. sailors who entered Iranian territorial waters, Iran’s state media said on Sunday.
Apparently the U.S. giving Iran the power to make nuclear weapons and $1 BILLION isn’t enough to make them happy with us.
Even after that, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said Iran should remain wary of its arch-enemy the U.S. The crazed leader awarded the Fath (Victory) medal to the head of the navy of the Revolutionary Guards and four commanders involved in the seizure of two U.S. Navy boats.
Iran freed the ten U.S. sailors on Jan. 13, a day after detaining them aboard the two U.S. Navy patrol boats in the Gulf, bringing a swift end to an incident that had rattled nerves shortly before the expected implementation of the nuclear accord with world powers. The Revolutionary Guardss said it had determined the patrol boats had entered Iranian territorial waters by mistake.

Iran is an example of a government/country that operates on a morally-primitive level of “Might is right”. They perceive and treat with contempt any concessions made by the opposing party as a sign of weakness.


And rightly so, especially when Democrats feel this is good foreign policy:comment image


Seems he media is deliberately downplaying the Navy episode hoping the public will lose interest?
Are we going to also award those ‘sailors’ for promoting trust and understanding between our two countries?
The Glorious Iranian Empire and dumbass ‘merica?
Kerry could hand out the medals.
Go Trump

I am a bit surprised Obama did not add his congrats to the infamous award.​

I am wondering if the reason our sailors were released so expeditiously was because perhaps not all the the Iranian assets had been freed up. No doubt they do think we are a second class nation–look at all we gave up in the negotiations. I don’t think that Kerry should feel too proud of himself, he rather sold our country out. They got everything–and we got nothing! Although, I am glad all these men were released. The question in my mind is . . . how is it that we “wandered into Iranian water???” Particularly two ships.
