New Iran Hostage Crisis? No timeline for release of 10 sailors as Tehran demands US apology

by  |  published on January 13, 2016

A U.S. official told Fox News Wednesday there is no timeline for the release of 10 U.S. Navy sailors who were detained by Iran after entering the waters near an Iranian naval base.

The official said “nobody knows” on the U.S. side knows why Iranian Revolutionary Guard forces were able to commandeer two Navy riverine boats and detain the crew. The status of the two vessels remains unknown and the official wouldn’t readout any specific arrangements made between the U.S. and Iran for the crew’s release.

The U.S. military is still waiting for Iran to release the sailors as the noon hour approaches in the Persian Gulf.

    We NOW know HOW they got RELEASED: “Hanoi John” (Viet Nam Traitor) Kerry GAVE Iran EXACTLY what they WANTED: a BIG FAT APOLOGY!

    If you’ll notice, this news story about the capturing of the sailors has had 7 comments so far, not including mine. Lot’s of “Bomb Bomb Bomb Iran” comments. The story telling of their capture – also on this website – has only had 1 comment so far. Like Bobnstuff said, everyone here is so quick to pull the trigger rather than try to wait for diplomacy. And people here don’t have anything to say when something good actually happens. This incident is proof positive of the total negativity that you people have bought into and that consumes your lives.

      TAKE your comments ELSEWHERE if you DON’T LIKE what you read HERE.

      AMERICA should NEVER need to APOLOGIZE to any ISLAMIC JIHAD NATION that is creating NUCLEAR WEAPONS to BOMB Israel AND the United States, you IDIOT! Or do you WANT Iran to BOMB us? If you have been paying ATTENTION, that is what THEY keep SAYING they PLAN to DO. I have a tendency to BELIEVE people who CARRY OUT their THREATS by BEHEADING INNOCENT people!

      Whenever the occasion WARRANTS it, I in fact DO have something GOOD to say, so DON’T lump ALL of US into a neat CATEGORY that YOU call “total negativity that you people have bought into that consumes your lives”. NOTHING GOOD has happened to America ever since our Muslim Dictator was “elected” through two STOLEN ELECTIONS by Socialists/Communists/Marxists who make up the so-called “Democratic Party”), who were WILLING to do CHEAT to get Obama INTO the WHITE HOUSE so HE could DESTROY our US Constitution and Bill of Rights and DENY that America INDEED has a CHRISTIAN HERITAGE through our FOUNDING FATHERS and their CHRISTIAN documents and personal writings!

        What a bunch of horses**t you spew.

        America SHOULD apologize when they obviously – even accidentally – cross into another nation’s territorial waters or airspace without their permission. That’s the international rule of law that civilized nations live by. And if America doesn’t uphold the laws, we can’t complain when others don’t either.
        Iran hasn’t beheaded innocent people. Please post links to news stories that state otherwise.

        Iran, currently, is not in a position to bomb America. Maybe Israel, but not America.

        When the occasion warrants it, you have something good to say?!?! Maybe so, but then you say that there has been no occasion for the past 7 years that has warranted a good comment. Nothing good has happened?

        – 14 million new jobs have been created since 2009 – many more than during Bush’s presidency
        – How many soldiers and other military are coming home in body bags from Iraq and Afghanistan in the last 3 years? WAY less than when Bush was in office.
        – People aren’t losing their homes to foreclosures in record numbers. The housing market has rebounded, as have construction jobs.
        – Interest rates have remained at historic lows, contrary to Republicans screaming for the past 6 years that America’s credit rating was going to be destroyed, and our economy was going to tank
        – More people have health insurance than ever before and their lives aren’t being destroyed by bankruptcies due to health care costs

        I could go on, but you have no interest in actual FACTS.

    Gee it’s amazing how things work if you aren’t attacking people. Which of the republicans would have sent in the 7th Army?

      TED CRUZ would have!

  • Michael Farris

    This is typical of Fox news reporting. The official said they were not surer when the sailors would be returned . The actual statement went on to say within 48 to 72 hours a long with the boats they were on.. The boats were incapacitated in open waters and drifted into Iranian waters and were assisted by the local navy there. The boats and men are due back on Wed or Thursday. Fox news would stop reporting, if they told the truth just once.

    Another Carter fiasco. Bomb those idiots!

  • Paul Fowler

    They should be demanded to release them right now or we go in period

  • patriot38

    I agree with you Jerry. Maybe that would help stabilize the mid-east!

    • Frankdidit

      As a recent talk with a lady who is married to a muslim, her statement to me was “Turn the pl;ace into a parking lot” Love it.

    • Faithful American

      Who is “Jerry”?

  • jerry young

    is this echoing of the first hostage situation? if we would have leveled them with bombs the first time we would not be in this position again, we showed weakness then and today it seams we are doomed to repeat our past, demand our soldiers release, give a definite time line and if not adhered too go in get our people and then bomb the hell out of them, show them and the rest of the world we are not to be messed with!

  • VirgoVince

    iran OWES the world an apology just for existing!!!!
    Thank ‘Lurch’ kerry and ovomit for their help!

    • bobnstuff

      We owe Iran our number system. Our country is oh so young and their culture is oh so very old, Much of what mankind is started in Persia. For thousands of years they were it leader of there part of the would. This is not some third world nation. They are educated and hard working. If you don’t like their government we have only ourselves to blame for it. We put a government in and they throw it out and we got what we have today.
