    The Iranian navy has seized a US cargo ship and escorted it to the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas, media reports say.

    There has been no official confirmation of the incident from either Iranian or American officials.

    Reports say the vessel had 34 crew aboard at the time.

    Iran's semi-official Fars news agency said the vessel had been detained "for trespassing on Iran's territorial waters".

    The incident happened in the Straits of Hormuz, according to the Pentagon (file image of Iranian warship)

    American officials have denied media reports that a US cargo ship had been seized by the Iranian navy.

    The Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV network had reported that a US vessel had been seized and taken to an Iranian port.

    An American official told Reuters there were "no indications so far" of any US ship being directed into an Iranian port.

    However, a Pentagon spokesman said a Marshall Islands-flagged ship had been boarded by the Iranian navy.

    Any captain who can be overtaken by pirates on camelback deserves to be relieved of command.

    Holding hands and kissing are signs of friendship among Mooslum men. Whatever....
    Bowing and scraping? Not so much....

    CNN says no Americans onboard. Too bad Iran, no good hostages here.

    the reality--it's been every president in the past century
    it's the next president and the one after that
    they'll all talk about being tough on terrorists and then they'll all lay down to play nice with the head of the snake
    they're traitors--all of them

    Haha.

    I saw hand holding. But I never saw any grown men swapping spits when I was in Jebel Ali and Abu Dhabi.

    I joined the military when his father was president.

    I became a democrat when he was in office.
