'The Deja Vu Experience', and the British Malfunctioning Naval Compasses

By: Abolfazl Moghadam

As the world is following the news and examining the facts, it appears that the issue of British crews caught in the Iranian waters is reminiscent of 'The Deja vu Experience.'

Was it not long ago that the British were floating near the Malvinas in the vicinity of the Argentinean territory? Or was it not decades ago that the British thought they were looking for the traces of their homeland in some countries of the Middle East, Islands of Southeast Asia and Africa? Could it be "The Deja vu Experience!?"

So, who's who and which is which? Of course it would not be rational per se, to point our fingers at the malfunctioning compasses that these British crews were carrying with them. For, it seems that the concept of quality control and the product liability have long been there. Perhaps we could ponder over who are using these compasses? May be conducting more lectures would be in order. Perhaps the British crews can be given more training in future. It is an old saying that experience pays. Yes, we are to value experience and remember that no black, red, or blonde hair would simply turn into a gray one, without hard works.

Having said that, let's not make a mistake. "The Deja vu Experience" cannot be always a bad card. Just think if the British crews could visit more and more the direction that leads them to go back to their homeland coastlines (England). That would be a good Deja vu though, because for sure, they have seen their homeland in England many times before. But, to keep the peace and harmony, they better not to have "The Deja vu Experience" in the Persian Gulf where they do not belong to. For visiting a sovereign nation's territory one must follow the law of the land, and this is subject to the sovereign state's will and feel. May be the best solution is not to play to the old fairy tales and He Said, She Said concept. They have long been outdated!
