I dont think the Iranians will be in the slightest bit worried by that news , :evil:
 
Re: Govt to prove that "Cornwall" personnel were in Iraqi waters

Perhaps it may not worry them at first but it is likely to encourage some of the countries that 'support' Iran to point out that in this case don't expect support from us.

Think it's all about Worlds perceptions Iranians say one thing, our lot reply with our evidence ad infinitum, until it all gets sorted out.
Diplomacy takes time as the sides wait to see how other nations respond to the situation and who will weigh in on who's side.
Iran appears to be upsetting lots of folks at the mo, so the RN/RM personnel will just have to wait for the slow wheels of justice to turn, not pleasant but safer than some of the Tom Clancey suggestions

Didn't doubt they were in the right place - but, at the moment it's the opposition who have are people! We'll just have to sit it out and wait and see! Not too pleasant for the families, but as NZ booty seaid its better than a few other comments - and again my heart goes out to the poor sods out there AND their families back home (all of them, not just those plugging the press!) We want them ALL back home safe and sound, not just a chosen few!

The diplomatic process, don't call the other chap a liar in public until you have given him a chance to back down.

And as pointed out elsewhere, the history of Persia is a very proud one, not a good idea to embarrass them until you have to.

Re: Govt to prove that "Cornwall" personnel were in Iraqi waters

We have had ships in the Persian gulf for decades, I therefore it is a criticism too far to blame TB for us being there. Now if you were blame him for failing to see that we needed serious investment in the armed forces for the last 10 years and have got pitifully too little of it you may have a point. Maybe this will encourage them to see the light.
