    Japan says they aren't sending any Troops. Although I don't see how any troops would help in maritime operations of tankers.

    Limpet mines were used. It is possible the Houthi Rebels could get them from Iran. But now getting in the water and swimming undetected to the tankers then doing the ditty. Just not in the Houthi rebels capabilities.

    Admirial Stravidias believes it is Iran. US Intel says it is Iran. Stravidias says this will require a response and we should expect one from the US. Iran says they will shut down the Strait of Hormuz. But now is affecting shipping there. Pompeo said it is Iran and this affects World shipping.


    The Lincoln Carrier and 5th Fleet have gone to General quarters. Our base in Qatar went to lockdown. Planes will be readied. Drones are already out and about taking pictures for the moment.


    The appropriate response is to go after Irans Navy. Ships for ships. Then if Iran wants to up their game. You know show leadership and take on the US. We will be prepared to open a can of whoop ass on them.


    Which needs to be done. Afterwards one thing is for certain. We wont be hearing Iran talking $#@! anymore.

    Would that be the same American military industrial complex that needs a war and has had Iran on the top of the hit list for over 15 years? Who else might want Iran destroyed? SA? (our buddies of the human rights?) Israel? But Iran doesn't want this.

    So you are okay with Iran affecting the world market with oil, correct? You are okay with them attacking other countries ships, Right. Despite that being an act of war. You would prefer to give the Iranians a pass, Correct.

    You want to be paying more money for gas don't you? You want the rest of the planet to pay more too, huh? You are okay with Iran using terrorists to exercise their attempted dominance of the ME, Right. Knowing that you are all hunky dorey with what Iran is doing because. USA.....bad. Right?


    So anything and everything Iran says......you are good with it, Right.

    If Iran was at the top of the hit list. Why didn't we hit them before Iraq? Since they have been on that list and we uhm needed a War. Why wait and go into Iraq and Afghanistan since obviously its about you know just the lame excuse of Oil. Uhm why didn't we take Iran out of the equation and make the world a better place to live in? Clearly we could have saved 15 years of problems with the mopes.

    Oh you are concerned about human Rights, huh? Where did that concern run off to when Iran started saying $#@! human Rights for their own people. Now for others. What happened there? That Leftist double standard just jumps Right out of ya, huh? Uh yep.....Iran says oh no not us. We love humans. All humans. Not us, and you believed them.


    So basically Iran can trick you easier than the average bear Right? Iran can play you like a mark and make their money Right? Cmon your willing to pay to help them out. Harp on USA.....bad. Bad Bad USA. You bad USA for anything and everything Iran does. Their own actions. USA fault Right?


    Tell us how we can go hide in a hole and Let Iran do whatever they want.

    Iranian threat to shipping is real and growing, as US ‘smoking gun’ video evidence shows


    Gulf of Oman tanker attacks: Everything you need to know



    Yes....Iran has escalated things. Clearly they are affecting a free passage trade route. As the second link states. There will be a response, which is required.
