It’s fun to remember how outraged the Iran deal’s critics pretended to be when Obama suggested their alternative to the deal was war. pic.twitter.com/zusczVVV75— Matt Duss (@mattduss) June 15, 2019

“On April 14, 1988, the U.S.S. Samuel B. Roberts, a frigate, hit an Iranian naval mine while sailing in the Persian Gulf. The explosion injured 10 of her crew and nearly sank the ship. Four days later, the U.S. Navy destroyed half the Iranian fleet in a matter of hours. Iran did not molest the Navy or international shipping for many years thereafter.
Now that’s changed. Iran’s piratical regime is back yet again to its piratical ways.
Or so it seems, based on a detailed timeline of Thursday’s attacks on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman provided by the U.S. Central Command, including a surveillance video of one of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps patrol boats removing an unexploded limpet mine from the hull of one of the damaged tankers.
The Iranians categorically deny responsibility. And the Trump administration has credibility issues, to put it mildly, which is one reason why electing a compulsive prevaricator to the presidency is dangerous to national security.
In this case, however, the evidence against Iran is compelling. …
What is appropriate is a new set of rules — with swift consequences if Iran chooses to break them. The Trump administration ought to declare new rules of engagement to allow the Navy to engage and destroy Iranian ships or fast boats that harass or threaten any ship, military or commercial, operating in international waters. If Tehran fails to comply, the U.S. should threaten to sink any Iranian naval ship that leaves port. …”
Literally on one else in the world but the pro-Israel lobby and Jewish neocons who write editorials for the New York Times thinks the evidence against Iran is compelling. The operator of the Japanese oil tanker claims that it was hit by a flying object, not an Iranian mine
“TOKYO — One of the tankers that were attacked in the Gulf of Oman was struck by a flying object, the ship’s Japanese operator said on Friday, expressing doubt that a mine had been attached to its hull.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday that American intelligence agencies had concluded that Tehran was behind the disabling of two tankers in the Gulf of Oman, a vital conduit for much of the world’s oil. Iranian officials denied any involvement in the events, which have escalated tensions in the region. …”
Iran has no incentive to antagonize Japan while its president is visiting the country to quell regional tensions to avoid a destructive war with the United States that could engulf the entire region. The idea that Iran which has stuck to the terms of the nuclear deal long after Blompf abandoned it out of subservience to Sheldon Adelson and put up with crushing American sanctions and repeated military attacks on Iranian forces in Syria by Israel attacked the oil tanker to prove that Blompf is a “Twitter Tiger” is laughable. It says a lot though about the credibility of The New York Times.
“Israeli officials told me that Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is responsible for the attack against the two oil tankers in the Gulf earlier this week. Israeli officials intimately involved in policy on Iran claimed the IRGC used naval mines and a torpedo to attack the tankers.
Why it matters: Israel is the third country with advanced intelligence gathering capability on Iran to publicly point a finger at the IRGC for the attacks. In the last few days both President Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed the Iranians for the attack. Yesterday, the British Foreign Office announced there is high probability the IRGC is behind the attacks.”
Naturally, Israel is already blaming Iran for its false flag attack.
I’m more of a humanitarian than these people. I actually don’t want to see millions of people die in a new war in the Middle East or in Venezuela in South America for that matter.
The whole world is laughing at American foreign policy. No one else in the world believes the lies coming from Mike Pompeo and the Trump administration. The human race is opposed to Israeli control of American policy. The only people who support this are a handful of elderly Jewish Zionist donors who have corrupted our politics by donating millions of dollars to Republican politicians.
