(CNN) -- U.S. sailors from a carrier strike group whose recent presence in the Persian Gulf drew the ire of Iranian military officials have rescued 13 of the Middle Eastern country's sailors from a hijacked fishing boat, a military spokesman said Friday.
The destroyer USS Kidd came to the aid of the ship Thursday in the North Arabian sea, near the crucial Strait of Hormuz, according to the Navy.




Interesting turn of events, quiet a surprise to me as well. Maybe there is some good hearts out there not only wanting destroy all of Iran.

ATS's thoughts?

These men were rescued because our sailors are good guys. It's there command that isn't!

These were civilian sailors. They were from all over the middle east. I don't think our navy would be so quick to rescue a failing/sinking Iranian warship.

Thanks for posting.

I agree, our military personnel are good people, the command are the people that I have an issue with.

I hope that the Iranian govt. sees this and treats it as an act of good faith, our sailors didn't have to rescue them, the fact that they did shows a little hope.

I think most of the men and women serving in the forces are good people, they're just commanded by idiots at the top


Afterall soldiers only fight wars, politicians create them.

Good point, a common enemy is a good way to come to peace.

Plus, the elimination of all the somali pirates would do good for the region!
