    We have to be a lot more delicate with Iran. Russia and China have a vested interest in Iran, and we definitely wouldn't want to widen the conflict. You also have to consider that we'd probably create a new terrorist breeding ground there.

    Oh I agree completely. My toxic masculinity demands glass bowl bombage, though.

    They are now saying one was hit by a magnetic mine, while the other was torpedoed. Iran is known for putting mines out in the Strait of Hormuz, which they claim ownership of.

    Just heard a report that said they saw an unexploded mine attached to one of the ships.

    U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says the U.S. believes that Iran is responsible for attacks that damaged two oil tankers near the Persian Gulf.

    Hard to know what to believe given our history of false flag plotting to justify attacks.

    And the ships were Japanese while their leader is on Tehran. Smells fishy. There's some reports blaming Saudi Arabia too.

    Saudi Arabia or Israel is far more likely in my mind, they are the ones with something to gain. Iran is dumb at times but they're not irrationally, suicidally dumb.

    It could also be that they have rogue elements. Maybe they don't like the Japanese. Not enough quality hentai.

    Can't be Saudi Arabia because they have agreed with the US that it was Iran.
