Iran seizes two Tankers

Seizures Unacceptable

Iran crisis: British oil tanker seized in Strait of Hormuz as UK shipping warned to avoid area in Gulf
Mr Hunt said he was attending a Cobra meeting to determine the UK’s response and what could be done to secure their release, adding that the seizures were “unacceptable”.

 

 

Crucially, all of this comes just as UK officials have announced authorities in Gibraltar will detain the tanker ‘Grace 1’ - first seized early this month by UK Royal Marines - for another 30 days.

Iranian boats attempted to seize British tanker

British Iranian pirates

CNN reports that small Iranian patrol boats (speed boats) attempted to hijack a British Tanker. Apparently they did this under the watchful eye of a British frigate (the Montrose) in full sight of American drones. Supposedly this was in retaliation for the Brits seizing an Iranian tanker at Gibraltar. The difference between that report and the attempted hijack of a British tanker is that while the latter can be confirmed the Iranian "attack" cannot.

Rinse and Repeat

First they seized Iranian tanker on some false allegations. When Iran threatened consequences, they set up another lame false flag. Rinse, repeat. Same old, same old. Perhaps the CNN report is best summed up by some of the naughty comments found on certain websites:

INSTEX is the Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges and it permits companies in Europe to do business with countries like Iran, avoiding American sanctions by trading outside the SWIFT system, which is dollar denominated and de facto controlled by the US Treasury.
