Has Iran gone rogue?

Iran has seized a UK oil tanker this afternoon, and possibly a second vessel. COBRA meeting tonight 10.30pm to be led by Jeremy Hunt.
Dangerous escalation of tension in the straits of Hormuz. If true that it was taken in international waters surely that's piracy?

Re: Has Iran gone rogue?

Why can't we find out who issued the order to capture the Iranian vessel in Gibraltar?

The US had already tipped off Britain. On 4 July, after Grace I entered British-Gibraltar territorial waters, the fateful order was issued in London – it is not known by whom – and 30 marines stormed aboard.

It seems to me that the tories, forgive the jibe, have been trussed up like a kipper

Re: Has Iran gone rogue?

If the Iranian tanker that the British seized was heading for Syria, wasn't there an obligation for the British to stop said tanker?

Re: Has Iran gone rogue?

No, a joint EU taskforce would have been more appropriate. We are still in the EU I believe. the real stupidity though is allowing unaccompanied British vessels though the straits of Hormuz, knowing that the Iranians are looking to hijack a ship. Sheer incompetence and heads should roll for this. I am aware that we are short of escorts, so let them queue somewhere safe until an escort is available. It is not rocket science.

Re: Has Iran gone rogue?

The poor woman has already been moved to a psychiatric hospital and is out of contact. They moved her before they took the tanker so my guess is they will use her as a pawn. There are no words strong enough to condemn this kind of despicable bullying.

That's the point, I am very worried that the cretin will handle it with the dexterity of a hippo with boxing gloves

I am sorry to say that that is kind of bullying is one of my long lasting memories of 14 years in the Persian Gulf
