A big tanker, like this one, could wreck everything for miles around if it exploded. I did a year, or so, on tankers way back and I can't say it wasn't frightening at times. At least you'd not need to be cremated!
But we all got about 5% danger money!
It would be stationary because all crew would have been taken off.
The camera could have been on a drone. That way the bosses could watch without being exposed.
The crew of the small boat look very wary but so would you if you were alongside a ship with a very low flash point cargo and a fastened on fire bomb.They can only guess what can happen.
Yes Ted l agree, but when l posted that it had'nt been
established that the bomb was being REMOVED from the
the tanker! But now it poses the question ot why if the US
was videoing the event did they NOT intervene and capture
the (lranian boat )? As regards using a drone to do the
video as l stated earlier it seemed to be taken from a static,
stable platform! I also think it highly unlikely anybody would
return to the ship with a small boat packed with soldiers
to remove what was in effect a ticking bomb to hide so
called evidence with the US allready in attendance!!?
Dont you think so Ted?
