So, just to be clear..:

The United States Government has been trying to reassert its control over Iranian oil since 1979, when its (brutal) puppet dictator, the Shah of Iran, was deposed by a (Shia) Islamic Revolution.


=P~


Why would we care about Iran's oil NOW? America is the biggest energy producer in the World.

Face it, ME oil and the OPEC/Russian cartels don't have nearly as much influence as they did 20-30 years ago. Trump was interviewed yesterday basically swatting this whole thing away saying "who cares". Hitting a few non-American tankers has no big impact on the US.

President Trump Calls Alleged Iranian Attack on Oil Tankers 'Very Minor'
https://time.com/5608787/iran-oil-tanke ... ery-minor/

The only thing we care about in terms of Iran is that they are run my a messianic Theocracy who believes that their messiah (Hidden Imam) can only come back to the world if Man causes Armageddon. So we don't want Islamist nuts having nukes and the ability of starting Armageddon. And here is Iran claiming that they can begin enriching uranium for a bomb "all the smart people" claim Iran never intents to build.
https://gizmodo.com/iran-says-it-will-b ... 1835603079

We are getting into Sandyhook conspiracy theory level here now. Are these Iranians "crisis actors"? Here are some better images of the boats and close up of the composite material that affixed the mine. Only the Iranian Revolutionary Guard have boats like that in the Region.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/201 ... ages-photo

As to why the bombs were put above the water? I suspect Iran is just sending a message that they can fuck things up in the busiest oil shipping lane and didn't want to escalate with possible tanker sinking, human deaths and environmental damage.

Why are these faggots even wearing life vests in the first place? III/O

Does the revolutionary guard carry umbrellas into combat too in case it rains.

Possibilities:

- It's one of the most obvious false-flags in the history of man

- The Iranians really are THAT stupid

- The Iranians chose not to hide deliberately so the US would see and realise the Iranians could fuck shit up in the 'Hormuz if they wanted to

Someone is thick as shit whatever happened.

If it's 3 how did this happen?
- How come nobody noticed them in already side of the bombed tanker in the middle of the sea?
- Who is filming them? Themselves? If so did they just YouTube it? If not why wasn't anybody doing anything?

But yeah somebodys bit thick.

I guess nobody is generally looking over the side of a ship. And perhaps someone did spot them, we haven't really had any direct information from the crew although it sounds like some witnesses say they saw torpedoes or something?

I think someone said it was American drone footage. I guess they may well have sent them up after an attack to see what was going on.

Yes - they wear life vests, even when harassing US Navy ships. They have been doing this for years.

After the two tankers were hit, these Iranian boats came alongside to make a big show of rescuing the crew. I believe they rescued the crew of one of the ships and the US Navy rescued the other. So it is not a huge reach to think the Iranian boats scrambled to take off one of the mines that didn't explode while they were rescuing the crew of one of the ships.

Iran has lots of vulnerable targets. I believe they only have one gas/oil refinery supplying gas to the entire country. A simple cruise missile strike could put ALOT of hurt on Iran.

If Iran tries to close the straight of Hormuz, they are going to be hurting China far more than anyone else.

Have I mentioned lately that I am super stoked that America is no longer reliant on Middle East oil?

Maybe once or twice. Thanks Obama!

All that's left for you to hope for now is to ensure the world continues buying oil with dollars. Best of all worlds!

Trump seems pretty meh and not too bothered by all this.

Iran is desperate to get out of the sanctions. Maybe Iran will do something so stupid and brazen that even the Euros will get fed up with them?

Yeah, totally meh.

Plan and prepare a retaliatory strike only to cancel 10 minutes before launch with planes in the air and ships ready to fire? That's not being meh or chill. From a strictly leadership perspective, that's reckless and stupid. On such matters you either never plan it to begin with or if you plan it you go through with it, never call off at the last minute as it demonstrates a lack of confidence, conviction and clarity of purpose.

You people are a bunch of fucking war mongers!

Trump called off the attack because it was estimated that 150 or so Iranians were going to die over one unmanned drone.

And you’re unhappy with this? III/O

Murrica needs to learn its lesson the same way the Germans and Japanese did. War is passé.

I don't think anyone has said (seriously) they're unhappy the bombing didn't take place.

Besides, I'm not buying this story. I reckon they just wanted the Iranians to know how close they are to be bombed and didn't have any intention of actually doing it.

I’m hoping it’s that last part.
