US Destroyer Rescues Iranians From Pirates

This is kind of funny. The same week that Tehran said that bad things would happen if the U.S. aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis returned to the Persian Gulf, American sailors rescued 13 Iranian fishermen who had been held hostage aboard their dhow (ship), the Al Molai, for several weeks by pirates in the Arabian Sea.  The destroyer USS Kidd rescued the Iranians on Jan. 5 after their captain put out a distress call saying he and his crew were being held hostage, according to a Pentagon news release. The shot above shows the Kidd's visit, board, search and seizure team taking over the Iranian vessel, where they promptly captured the 15 pirates.

There goes that Great Satan again, rescuing people. I'd like to see how Tehran reacts to this one.
