It’s times like this I’m immensely proud to be Australian:
Aussies Repelled 5 gunboats (smh.com.au)
The Australian Defence Force says up to five Iranian gunboats tried to capture Australian sailors in the Persian Gulf in December 2004…
The BBC reported earlier today that Iranian naval forces tried to capture the boarding team, but were repelled in the face of machine guns and “highly colourful language”.
Quoting a “military source”, BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner reported Iranian forces made a concerted attempt to seize a boarding party from the Royal Australian Navy and that the Australians “were having none of it”.
You can imagine it now, a bunch on RAN personnel are surrounded by Iranians with guns and the simple response to the Iranian’s is that they can get f*cked and f*ck off…and it worked!
