    I really dislike situations where everyone says no one wants a war and yet there are all manner of goings-on that are provocative enough to cause someone to either disprove it or just make a mistake in the stress of assorted "testing" escalations.

    Purportedly it was in international waters and forced back into Iranian territory.

    Bingo.. Same as how Canada was used as puppet for Trump and Netanyahu’s orders to capture Huawei’s CFO Meng Whanzhou. Someone setup the U.K. for this capture of the vessel as well.

    And then remember this from Before.;)

    There’s also credible evidence that Israel could be playing a key role in this subterfuge.

    UK must look after its own ships in the Gulf, says Pompeo (Guardian article but remarks being widely reported here).

    Ha ha, you couldn't make it up really - that'll teach us...

    Yet they told them to look after Iranian vessels and pushed them into seizing that vessel. Once they got problems on their hands they told them to look after their own ships lol..

    Britain should not have seized their Iranian Tanker

    So it’s okay for a sovereign nation to confiscate another sovereign nation’s asset and when the script is reversed.... how dare you?

    That’s not right

    As we can now see that the UK agreed to release it but the US and Israel don't want it released and are pushing for it not to be released to incite and provoke some sort of response from Iran.

    The advantage of grabbing an empty one is that you don't risk an environmental catastrophe.

    Yes, something is brewing and it isn’t stew.

    Not quite, just a calm before the storm.

    Notice the term "All" again and false accusations

    https://www.timesofisrael.com/pompeo-warns-anyone-who-touches-iran-tanker-risks-us-sanctions/


    Oil is gas for domestic local market in Syria. People in Syria need fuel. This is Syrian government buying oil for themselves and their people. I believe that oil has dual use for it

    Pompeo said the US doesn’t want crude oil to go to Syria because it will be “off-loaded, sold, used by the Quds force, an organization that has killed countless Americans and people all across the world.”

    Well now we have Iran "making it clear" that if sanctions cut their exports to zero,,,,

    “World powers know that in the case that oil is completely sanctioned and Iran’s oil exports are brought down to zero, international waterways can’t have the same security as before,” Rouhani said. “So unilateral pressure against Iran can’t be to their advantage and won’t guarantee their security in the region and the world.”​

    This would not be happening if the US hadn't unilaterally exited the JCPOA.

    What is important to remember is that countries around the world which signed the agreement with Iran did not go to the UN and say Iran is breaking the rules of what was signed in the agreement so let's put together amother vote and cancel it so sanctions can be reapplied but instead Netanyahu said I don't like what was signed before without my approval and I along with my people helped put Trump in power so he owes us one so in return he will scrap agreement and reapply sanctions regardless of what all others think because if anyone opposes this and calls out on this we will call this an anti-semitic Conspiracy theory to shut them up ;):rolleyes:o_O

    What's important to remember is that Trump's an impulsive guy.
