That means the other maritime countries are in grave trouble, because british prefer to deploy other countries rather then their own.
2. Rank stupidity
Mikesailor ,   Miami   (07.24.19)
The brits screwed up by impounding the Iranian ship in international waters. Iran was not a signatory or obligated in any way to respect EU sanctions. The EU is NOT the Security Council. The E U can only control its own members. What the Brits did was commit an act of piracy to suck up to the Trumpistas, nothing more. And quietly they will release the Iranian ship and the British ship will also be released. This is only “sound and fury signifying nothing”. Idiots.
3. Oh man, talk about a coalition of the unwilling!
Cameron   (07.24.19)
Trust only us & the Brits to perform in such Gulf duty.

Would you honestly place any faith in European naval escort?
