(update 20160114): Retitled from a comment here.
To be honest, the Iranian capture of two “disabled” boats seemed a bit odd. To some who indicate that they know better, it stinks:
I rarely pull out my dusty old trident, but in this case, here goes. I was a Navy SEAL officer in the 1980s, and this kind of operation (transiting small boats in foreign waters) was our bread and butter. Today, these boats both not only had radar, but multiple GPS devices, including chart plotters that place your boat’s icon right on the chart. The claim by Iran that the USN boats “strayed into Iranian waters” is complete bull$#it.
The post above came from military guy, this looks at the bigger picture.
And more still.
