Whoa! This Navy Captain Blows Wide Open Why Iran REALLY Captured 10 US Sailors
Retired Navy Capt. Chuck Nash, a Fox News contributor, says the whole point of the Iranian Republican Guard Navy taking 10 US sailors hostage was to embarrass America and show how weak we are. Especially to other Arab states. I absolutely agree with that. This is a great reason to elect Ted Cruz: “And I give you my word, if I am elected president, no service man or service woman will be forced to be on their knees, and any nation that captures our fighting men will feel the full force and fury of the United States of America.” Exactly right, you don’t allow an enemy to violate the Geneva Convention, take our sailors hostage and force an apology before they are released without retaliation. Those 9 men and 1 woman were forced on their knees with their hands on their heads and taken at gunpoint. That is an act of war.
From Western Journalism:
The Iranian regime detained 10 United States sailors to publicly embarrass America, according to retired Navy Capt. Chuck Nash.
Nine men and one woman were detained by Iranian officials for 16 hours after they drifted into Iranian waters.
Nash, now a Fox News military analyst, said in a Thursday interview on Fox’s American Newsroom the footage of a sailor apologizing was a deliberate attempt to show U.S. weakness. Nash said he believes Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei made the decision to release the footage because the group detaining the sailors was the Iranian Republican Guard Navy, which reports directly to Khamenei.
“This was done intentionally and it was done to further embarrass the United States” Nash said. “And to send the clear message to the Gulf Arabs: If the Americans won’t stand up for themselves, they’re certainly not going to stand up for you. We’re the big dog now.” I also agree with Nash when he questions the sailor’s conduct and training who apologized. Chances are that even after these sailors are debriefed and released, they will be forced to stay silent over this. But trust me, we will eventually get the story here. Nash’s comments are in direct contrast with those coming out of the State Department. Spokesman John Kirby said in an interview on Hannity the quick release of the sailors occurred because of improved relations between the US and Iran. Secretary of State John Kerry issued the same comments earlier. What a wicked joke. We don’t know if they resisted yet. Article 2 of the U.S. Navy Code of Conduct dictates, “I will never surrender of my own free will. If in command, I will never surrender the members of my command while they still have the means to resist.” “If I am captured, I will continue to resist by all means available. I will make every effort to escape and aid others to escape. I will accept neither parole nor special favors from the enemy,” adds article 3. Americans don’t surrender like this and we don’t wave a white flag when confronted. This whole thing smells to high heaven.
