Re: Tankers being attacked.

Got to laugh at this.. It brings back to mind the Iraq videos shown by Colin Powell in an attempt to prove Iraq was moving WMD around . Remember ?

This is worse.. unclear videos trying to give logic to the world for attacking Iran. It doesn't look like the same ship in different pictures, and where was the smoke and flames ?

Trump and co. sat through memorials last week to commemorate 75 yrs since the WWII, it meant nothing to them !

Re: Tankers being attacked.

Hi

The USA is putting sanctions on to stop Iran selling Oil.

Japan is till buying oil from Iran,

Why would the Iranians bomb a Japanese tanker?

Hi

The video shows an attached magnetic mine.

The holes are above waterline, mines are normally set deeper to avoid being wasted on small craft.

As long as the right and best outcome results that's all that matters.

As an aside Iran has been a latter-day Animal Farm for far too long.

Perhaps Meg can move it to here?

Sorry LD lm too old to do the tech stuff?
But the latest l have heard is that the video taken shows
Iranian boat REMOVING a magnetic mine from the japanese
tanker, which would explain the ship being stationery,
But why would anybody risk removing a ticking bomb
with the US in attendance and allready videoing the scene?
Plenty more questions to be asked?
VERY! VERY! FISHY?
