    After Venezuela,.... Now War with Iran?

    Over the past 72 hours, many claims that Iran "Torpedoed"/ "Mined" two oil tankers has risen up, & frankly, I'm skeptical about the whole matter.

    How many "Combatants"/ "Terrorists" go out to prove a point & only half Azz do the job?

    Seriously, .... Shouldn't it be "Go Big & Strong, or Go Home!"?

    The previous "Attacks" about ten days ago, only showed damage similar to a "Fender Bender" in a Home Depot parking lot, .... But this time, the tankers actually caught fire, & per reports that are still incoming, one tanker may have sank.

    Already, "I'm from Th' Swamp" Pompeo is pushing for Military Action, & many voices are clamoring for that, irregardless of having 100% Concrete Proof, & as usual, no concern for the severe consequences that could rise up, such as "World War Three".

    A video has been released, showing a boat full of alleged Iranians, with one reaching up to a tanker, & retrieving a "Mine" that supposedly failed to blow up. Perhaps he intends to return it, to some Chinese manufacturer for a refund?

    Another questionable thingy, is that one of the tankers is Japanese, & the Japanese Prime Minister was in Tehran, at the time of the alleged attack, meeting with Iranian Leaders!

    DANG!!! I reckon that "Iranian Republican Guard" didn't get that office memo aboy holding off any attacks until the meeting was over?

    Ya'll, ..... This is INSANITY at it's best, & "IF" this continues at the rate it's moving, ....... Our Lives & the World will very soon be FUBARED.

    US releases video it claims shows Iran removing unexploded mine from Gulf tanker

    By Barbara Starr and Devan Cole, CNN

    Updated 3:47 AM ET, Fri June 14, 2019

    " (CNN)The United States military on Thursday released a video that it says shows an Iranian navy boat removing an unexploded mine attached to the hull of the Japanese-owned chemical tanker Kokura Courageous, one of two tankers attacked in the Gulf of Oman.
    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday blamed Iran for attacking the Kokura Courageous and another ship, Norwegian-owned Front Altair, saying the assessment was based on intelligence. Later Thursday night, US Central Command released the video, which it says shows Iranian sailors removing a mine from the Kokura Courageous' hull.
    In the video, a smaller boat is shown coming up to the side of the Japanese-owned tanker. An individual stands up on the bow of the boat and can be seen removing an object from the tanker's hull. The US says that object is likely an unexploded mine.
    The attack comes at a time of high tensions between the US and Iran, and could provide more fodder for Iran hawks within the administration, whose recent Iran saber-rattling has frustrated President Donald Trump. One of them, national security adviser John Bolton, announced last month that the Pentagon was deploying the USS Abraham Lincoln Carrier Strike Group and a bomber task force to the Middle East in response to a "number of troubling and escalatory indications and warnings" from Iran."

    US Releases "Smoking Gun" Video Of Iran's Navy Handling Mine On Tanker Hull

    "In a perhaps positive sign that could slow the attempts of hawks within the administration to push for war over Thursday's mysterious attacks on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman, US Central Command issued a statement just hours after Pompeo officially blamed Tehran, saying in a CENTCOM press release that “a war with Iran is not in our strategic interest, nor in the best interest of the international community.”

    Pentagon & Congress
    US Navy assisting 2 tankers targeted in Gulf of Oman
    By: Jon Gambrell, The Associated Press   1 day ago



    "Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says U.S. intelligence indicates that the attacks on two tanker ships off the coast of Iran Thursday were carried out by Iran as part of large campaign of escalating tensions in region.

    Pompeo said the preferred U.S. response is still sanctions and diplomacy but “the U.S. will defend our interest” in the Middle East.

    The two massive tankers were attacked in the Gulf of Oman near the strategic Strait of Hormuz, an assault that left one ablaze and adrift as sailors were evacuated from both vessels.

    No one has claimed responsibility or explained how the tankers were attacked.

    Iran’s foreign minister called the attacks “suspicious.”

    The U.S. Navy rushed to assist amid heightened tensions between Washington and Tehran.

    A spokesman for the U.S. Central Command said 21 crew members rescued from the oil tanker Kokuka Courageous are now on board the Navy’s guided-missile destroyer Bainbridge following an explosion. Army Lt. Col. Earl Brown says the U.S. Navy ship was in international waters in the Gulf of Oman near the Courageous when it received a distress call at about 6 a.m. local time.

    Brown says the Bainbridge provided “immediate assistance” to the Courageous and its crew members after they abandoned ship."

    Since you asked...

    Iran has their back up against a very solid sanctions wall. They face an uprising that they will be changed by. President Obama left the people of Iran high and dry the last time they rose up. Because everyone else in the region fears the growing Nuke capability of Iran, chances are good that all parties will stand together against them. The attacks on the tankers were committed by factions of the Iranian armed forces, in a move to use petrol-economics to force the world back from sanctions. Since the US has become a top producer of petroleum and nat gas, this move will fail.

    The next move is up to the Iranian population.

    Maybe he should express it in the proper forum, there is a place for that and it’s called ARP, or maybe it’s because you can’t post down there.

    I am always concerned about our troops, and I believe that with the proper timing you can reduce the injuries and deaths to US Armed Forces by doing things that need to be done when they need to be done.

    Usually if you wait longer than that, our losses and injuries will increase exponentially.

    It's not "the midget dude" that we should fear. It is his friends, who are not happy with us, that happen to be much bigger than Andre the Giant.

    I was referring to Iran's military capability.

    If you mean Russia, they don't want any of us either. Putin is no dummy, there would be no winners in Russia and Us getting into it. That is part of the reason he didn't want Hillary as president.
