TEHRAN, Iran – Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Saturday welcomed the U.S. Navy’s rescue of 13 Iranian fishermen held hostage by Somali pirates in the Arabian Sea, calling it a humanitarian act.
But the hard-line Fars News Agency, which is close to Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guard, dismissed the rescue as a Hollywood-style propaganda stunt intended to justify the U.S. Navy’s presence in the nearby Persian Gulf.

What makes you think the rescue order came down from the other side of the world from top pentagon brass?
yeah there's navy ships out there, but why does even a little decent act by the military have to have some malevolent ulterior motive to it?

Thats like "If a tree fell in the woods but there was no one there to hear it,
did it make a sound?"
You reply assures me that "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished."
In your mind anyway.
