The Iranians said they released the 15 British sailors as an Easter gift to the British people.
I didn't know Muslims celebrated Easter.
Let's face it, they did it to try to look like they're taking the high road... which is why they captured them in the first place, right?
I would suggest that this played out two ways. In one sense, they looked like rational people to the Europeans who desperately want to see them that way so they can go on with their moral decay and not have to deal with all that icky military stuff.
To the local countries, Iran looked like a powerhouse, able to kidnap and release British sailors at will.
Hey, it's a catch and release program!
