Worth fighting for?

We see the results of shitty decisions, political chicanery and back-stabbers united in the recent actions of Iran subjecting fifteen British service personnel to two weeks of detention in their midden of a country!

The proud traditions of a Royal Navy, or at least the Royal Navy which I knew, admired and respected, would not have allowed their sailors and marines to be tamely captured by a bunch of wild-eyed fanatics! The Navy I knew would have opened fire without hesitation, and would have fulfilled the honourable memories of a Service with over three hundred years of tradition behind it! The Navy I knew would not have tamely held back, and let their comrades be taken hostage without a firefight!

 But that was a different Navy, and those were different times!
