Iranian paras seize British Oil Tanker
Jul 21st, 2019 at 9:31am
 
Iranian paratroops rappelled down onto the British flagged Stella Bulk and seized the oil tanker

Tensions have lifted enormously in the straits off Iran

Britain has promised a  suitable 'response' as diplomatic efforts to free the tanker have thus failed
The stakes are rapidly increasing in a game of 'high stakes poker' there

Only a day ago the U.S. destroyed an Iranian drone near the U.S. Naval fleet

The seizure of the Stella Bulk could be a game breaker as all out action draws closer

Blow up Iran, Iran is full of Muslims who want Atom bombs. Not a good outcome for humanity if they get their way.

Calm down you hysteric closet poms, British colony Australia is full of you.
You want US to deal with British poo while Britain acts like pirates and seized Iranian ship first on their own. UK being a typical shrewd ex colonial snake to provoke war between Iran and US. 
Now let "powerful" colonial power to handle this one without the help from the USA with their own navy. If you ask Trump for help i hope he will tell arrogant folks from the UK Sorry it's your problem not ours

Don't you keep abreast of the news?

The nuclear uranium enrichment argy bargy between the US & Iran was going on before this ship seizing business.

A US drone was shot down & the Iranians claimed it.

The Yanks reckon they shot down an Iranian drone  ......

they have had a military presence in the region for a long time ...

now it's gone from Somali pirates hijacking ships ... to the Iranian military.

The only question I have about the UK seizing a Iranian tanker around Gibraltar is ... where was that oil coming from?

They claim it was going to Syria..... why wouldn't the Iranians supply Syria from their own oil fields?

The only reason we refer to the US in this context is that it is there in the front yard of people it has no smacking right to meddle with.  Who made it the World's Sheriff?

Just far cough Uncle Sam.
