Tankers attacked

Following the attacks on two oil tankers in the Straits of Hormuz Iran has come under the spotlight. There were 4 attacks on tankers in May. These latest ones are thought to be torpedoes and / or mines, but not yet verified. Both tankers were fully laden but are still afloat, and the crews have all been taken ashore to a port in Iran. All are safe and well, with just one minor casualty.
This has already had a significant effect on the price of crude oil; Brent crude has increased by about 3% since last night to $64 pb.
Already the TL is coming under strain.

Re: Tankers attacked

If it were a mine, then surely the damage would be below the waterline. The article in the guardian states that the damage is above the waterline and that the vessels are safely afloat.
It could just as easily be the saudis, or the americans looking to stir up trouble.

Re: Tankers attacked

Bombing the sh1t out of neighboring countries and whining because they are hit back? Wow, we will in the West fully support our head choping off friends.

Maybe the USA should shoot down another Iranian civilian airliner, that'l show em.

Re: Tankers attacked

Can you run that past me again?

The USA, who have been doing everything to start a war with Iran over the years (see- John Bolton below for confirmation) have *stands back in amazement* blamed Iran for attacking a Japanese oil tanker off the coast of... Iran.

https://theintercept.com/2019/05/16/...war-with-iran/

At the very same time Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe was visiting Iran on a diplomatic visit. The first visit by Japan for about 40 years and sent by Trump to ease tensions...

Meanwhile, there is no concrete evidence of who done what by anyone and why...

But the crew of the said ships are safe and well. Rescued by the Iranians it seems...

Of course, it was the Iranians who dud it. They wouldn't hesitate to inflict serious damage on their own economy and start a war, would they?

Don't worry though, Belingcat AKA Elliot Higgins will be on the case, aided and abetted by the political activists masquerading as journalists in the Guardian and other MSM. We will all sleep better once they have solved the mystery.

Yet another hoax/false flag in the tradition of Skripal and Dorma and of course the USS Liberty...

As a parent of children in the military are you not more bothered about them being dragged into a brutal war to

a) satisfy egos,
b) satisfy the greed for oil,
c) satisfy one countries desperation to dominate and persecute a region

Re: Tankers attacked

My comments were a bit tongue in cheek Martin. Of course I don't want any world conflicts and you can be sure that we would be the first ones in if the U.S. asked us ! Hils
