I know that actions speak louder than words, but I happened to find a piece in an Australian rag (gee, wonder why the US MSM missed this one) that gives me a little hope. At least they found someone with the cojones to stand up for himself and his men:

A US military commander in the Gulf said yesterday American naval personnel would have opened fire on the Iranians in similar circumstances.

Lieutenant Commander Erik Horner, second-in-command on the USS Underwood in the Gulf, said: “I don’t want to second-guess the British after the fact, but our rules of engagement allow a little more latitude. Our boarding team’s training is a little bit more towards self-preservation.

“The unique US Navy rules of engagement say we not only have a right to self-defence but also an obligation to self-defence.

“They had every right, in my mind, every justification to defend themselves rather than allow themselves to be taken. Our reaction was, ‘Why didn’t your guys defend themselves?”‘

Asked whether the men under his command would have fired at the Iranians, Commander Horner said: “Agreed. Yes.”
