A question for Tony Blair

Tony Blair makes the bold (and unsupported) claim that "There is no doubt at all that these people [15 British sailors] were taken from a boat in Iraqi waters." But, if that's true, then the Iranian warship which made the arrests was in Iraqi waters. And if that's true, why didn't the British Navy arrest them, or at least try to stop them from arresting their sailors? It's true the captured sailors were on little rubber boats, but their "mother ship," based on pictures on TV, was a serious vessel, perfectly capable of repelling an incursion by an Iranian ship into Iraqi waters. Of course, that could only happen if the Iranian ship were in Iraqi waters, which seems unlikely.
