Word on the street is that they all broke out in song with mika's 'Grace Kelly'... would scare anyone away really.

I could be brown
I could be blue
I could be violet sky
I could be hurtful
I could be purple
I could be anything you like
Gotta be green
Gotta be mean
Gotta be everything more
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you like me?
Why don't you walk out the door!

...very colourful language indeed.:naughty:

On a serious note, good on them.

^^ They might not have understood the words, but they would have understood the meaning very clearly.

I used to be in the Navy, and have a friend still in who was doing these boarding operatons last year. I can imagine exactly what would have occured.

This happened a while ago, and has only come to light because of British journalists investigating the story of their own sailors and marines being captured by the Iranians.

I'm very glad our guys were able to defend themselves, and we didn't have to face the spectacle of them being paraded on TV like the unfortunate Brits were.

actually, when you look at the perils other nations forces have been in (and their losses), in both iraq and afghanistan, we're faring very well, touch wood.

Just to be clear btw, I'm not dismissing the events that occurred, just the way its being portrayed by the media.

They enlisted the services of the mighty Australian Cricket team. Their popped collars would insight fear into any man as would their sledging.

Archibomber we all know the stories of the 1 Australian V 100 Americans in a training drill? ;)

"highly colourful language".

AKA:
Who cut the dog in half?
They are as mad as a cut snake!
You couldn't blow the froth off a glass of beer!
You're as useless as an ashtray on a motorbike!

^^ well this story comes from a report by British intelligence, so unless they care about our local politics (to this degree) i think it is just that; a coincidence.

Yes, it is a coincidence, this story has broken because of British journalists investigating the capture of their own personnel. The Australian media picked up on the original BBC story.

I hope the Australians didn't try to 'take their beach back'.
