What Are the Consequences for the Iranian Troops Who Captured U.S. Soldiers?

Will this presidential election be the most important in American history?

When Iranian troops captured U.S. soldiers earlier this year, they had to answer to the supreme leader of Iran. Only it wasn’t to get disciplined, it was to get celebrated.

Fox News reports:

Iran’s supreme leader has awarded medals to five members of the Iranian Navy whom he said “captured intruding” U.S. Navy sailors during a tense incident in January. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei awarded the Order of Fat’h medal to Admiral Ali Fadavi, the head of the navy of the Revolutionary Guards, and four commanders who seized the two U.S. Navy vessels, according to Reuters. Iran’s state media reported the news on Sunday.

…On Jan. 12, Iran captured the ten sailors whose boats “misnavigated” into Iranian waters, according to Defense Secretary Ash Carter. Though the sailors were released the following day, Iran released video of the sailors being captured, detained and apologizing for the incursion.

Though Iran initially accused the sailors of spying, Fadavi later said an investigation had established the sailors were led astray by “a broken navigation system” and the trespassing was “not hostile or for spying purposes”. The sailors were attempting to navigate from Kuwait to Bahrain when they crossed into Iranian waters.

Here is a celebratory tweet from the Ayatollah himself:

Meanwhile, the United States continues to support over $100 billion in sanctions relief for Iran. Unbelievable.

This is just the latest in a long line of disrespect towards the United States.

Remember when the Ayatollah tweeted out a cartoon picture of Barack Obama pointing a gun at his own head and calling the U.S. criminal?

Or how about when Iran launched rockets near a U.S. ship in international waters last December?

Or the time the White House actually admitted to the world that Iran will likely use its sanctions relief money to fund terrorism?

How many incidents will it take before the White House finally gets the hint that Iran will always be an enemy of the United States, regardless of how much money we throw at them?
