    So what's the chances of the SBS getting that British flagged tanker back?

    Ship is easy to find. Finding the crew is not.

    If you have to put a compensator on a 9mm, maybe you should buy panties instead of briefs - Ken Hackathorn via Facebook live

    It'd probably be more of a SBS mission. However, I'm sure either unit is more then capable.

    Well apparently the British like to let pirated ships sail to Somalia so I’m not sure what they’d be willing to do against Iran.

    Yep. Considering that both units go through the same selection and training program, the only real difference is that SAS wears a tan beret and SBS wears a green beret. Though the SAS does have a combat diver/amphibious squadron, I'd imagine that SBS generally gets first dibs on most maritime missions.

    Maybe they'll send the new female 007.

    Britannia doesn't rule the waves any longer, with less than 25 ships in their Navy, and about half fit for duty without a full compliment of sailors. I listened to the audio of the exchange between the Iranians and HMS Montrose - it was like the British ship was advising the Persian Pirates to not do anything illegal, while their flagged tanker was being escorted away. With weak allies like that, who needs them.

    That’s what they did with the vessel in the video I linked above. Just watched a pirated ship get taken to Somalia. No attempt to intervene or block the ship from being taken to the coast. I really don’t know what the purpose of them being in the AO is if they just observe hijacked/pirated ships being taken.
