I haven't read all the coverage of the Iranian kidnapping of 15 British sailors and marines no one could but what I have read does not mention one interesting question: what happened to their uniforms? We know that they were sent home in ugly Iranian suits. Unless I'm missing something, it appears that their uniforms remain in Iranian hands. Or perhaps not. In January, Iraqi "insurgents" in fact, war criminals wearing American uniforms killed five American soldiers in Karbala (good summary here). Have the British uniforms stolen by Iran already been shipped to al Sadr's men in Basra so they can try the same thing there? Why is no one asking what happened to them?
I have no idea, but it sounds like a reasonable question to me, and maybe a wider airing will elicit an answer somewhere.Posted at 6:57 AM to Dyssynergy
