Iran releases video

Iran Posts Video Showing Commandos Raiding  Oil Tanker

Iran must be destroyed for committing the one unforgivable sin…..they faithfully fulfilled their obligations under a united nations sponsored international treaty. ‘A senior Iranian official has called for the seizure of a British oil tanker in case London refuses to release the Iranian vessel it has illegally detained in Gibraltar.

“If Britain does not release the Iranian oil tanker, it is the authorities duty to make a reciprocal move and seize a British oil tanker,” said Major General Mohsen Rezaei, a top IRGC general and the secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council.

He said the Islamic Republic has never been the initiator of tension in its 40-year history, but it also will never hesitate to respond to bullies.”

Phantom drone and tanker

The Drone is destroyed (because I said so)

 

Operators of the drone refused calls to stand down, after which it was;

"immediately destroyed"


Bam, bam, boom...gotcha

Ba Ba boom shoot that drone

Ba Ba boom shoot that drone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where is the film evidence?  The grainy video? The parts retrieved from the sea?  The sailors dancing a jig and celebrating?  Perhaps it was an Iranian boy flying a kite?

“We have no information about losing a drone today,” 
Zarif told reporters at the United Nations before
a meeting with Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

Iranians seize tanker

Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) says it has seized a foreign vessel with 12-crew members carrying one million barrels of oil. In an official Iranian media statement early on Thursday, the country's military asserted the tanker was caught "smuggling" the fuel through the Strait of Hormuz.

 

The ship’s registered owner, Dubai-based Prime Tankers LLC, told the AP it had sold the ship to another company called Mouj Al-Bahar. A man who answered a telephone number registered to the firm told the AP it didn’t own any ships. The Emirati official said the ship was “neither UAE owned nor operated” and carried no Emirati personnel, without elaborating.  If they were smuggling that would explain why there wasn't any distress signal and why the UAE has forsworn any knowledge or responsibility for the vessel. 

 

So, does it belong to the UAE or to Panama (even the UK has been suggested)?

A phantom drone and a phantom ship up to no good....who would have thunk it?

Believe nothing

It is better not to believe any of it.  The war drums are beating and as long as they can paint a picture of a lawless, aggressive Iran that is believed by 80% of the public they will have done a good job of preparing public sentiment for the need to intervene and make the world safe for us all.
