The wording sailors is quite amusing. If two Iranian ships full of highly armed soldiers would have had the same kind of mechanical failure both at the same time and would accidentally enter US waters, they would rather have been called: militants, elite soldiers, Qods-Force or what ever seems more threatening.
But in this case all the international press is repeating “sailors”, and even though in this case like in other cases it is clear that these sailors were most probably on a spy mission like in this case (the source is referenced: The Guardian) or like US drones that regularly accidentally enter Iranian Air space.

Anyhow Iran’s reaction has been very mild. Looking back at what Turkey did as a Russian Airplane entered its Airspace for a few seconds, it shows how much Iran has actually softened its stance. While this is good for the “Sailors” it seems that some GOP candidates are quite frustrated that the Americans were set free as easily:
US “boats”: speed boats in full camouflage and highly equipped with weapons:

“On their way from Kuwait to Bahrain”:
These highly trained professionals should be trained better in navigation.
And here their weapons:

Christian Science Monitor + lots of Israeli sources:
Netanyahu is telling the lie about nuclear weapons in Iran since 1992. He said in 92 that Iran is 3-5 years away from having the bomb:
2012 He made a big show in front of the UN that Iran will soon have nuclear weapons, already knowing the Mossad reports that were saying that Iran is not even trying to build nuclear weapons:
Also at home he is lying:
Here a report on YNet (right wing Israeli news) about Nuclear Iran:
US intelligence agencies see it the same way:
Here you’ll see a video of a presentation Netanyahu made before a congressional committee in 2002 in which he encouraged a US attack upon Iraq. “A nuclear-armed Saddam will place the security of our entire world at risk,” he says at one point. Almost the same words he used now about Iran. It seems very much as if this man has been advocating war throughout much of his adult life.
A war that cost the US tax payer 2 trillion dollars, thousands of dead marines, and tens of thousands with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder(PTSD) and or handicapped.
Why do people want an escalation with Iran? Do they want get their hands bloody on more Iranian lives?

Iranians have nothing against the people of Israel or Jews at all. Please take a careful look at these posts:
