    Apparently Iran is detaining the crew of one of the ships and they have gunboats surrounding their ship, preventing any other ships from towing it away.

    I'm sure Trump is to blame for this too though.

    Democrats: "We have to trust our intelligence agencies! They are saying Trump is a Russian asset! IMPEACH! IMPEACH!"
    Also Democrats: "We can't trust our intelligence agencies! Iran would never do anything wrong!"

    Japanese Tanker Owner Says U.S. Is Wrong About Gulf Attack


    Yutaka Katada, the owner of one of the stricken fuel tankers crippled in explosions in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday, says the U.S. is wrong about the way the attack was carried out. Speaking at a press conference in Tokyo on Friday, he contradicted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the U.S. Navy, which released a video that purports to show an Iranian patrol boat removing a limpet mine from the port side of the Kokuka Courageous. Katada said his ship was attacked on the starboard side by a flying object, not by a mine. “It seems that something flew towards them. That created the hole, is the report I’ve received,” Katada said, according to the Financial Times. “It seems there was a high chance they were attacked by a flying object. The impact was well above the water. I don’t think it was a torpedo.” The Japanese ship owner did not say who might be responsible for the attack. Iran has vehemently denied it was involved...

    Have to watch out for those fearsome flying mines now too apparently.

    Khaladon starts to turn the crystal knob, but stops with a frightened look on his face. He begins shaking uncontrollably and flies across the room, as though by some invisible force.

    **SPLAT!!** Khaladon careens off the far wall, slides down the smooth wood panelling and collapses into a quivering heap on the floor, with only his dignity bruised.

    I don't think the US has ever said mines caused the damage, just that there is video evidence showing an Iran ship removing an unexploded mine. So not sure why the ship owner is "contradicting" something that wasn't said.

    I've heard a torpedo hit one ship and a mine hit the other, causing damage. One ship also had an unexploded mine. And I guess Iran removed an unexploded mine from another according to that video.
