    Torpedos can and do skip up out of the water, especially for shallow water use when launched by boats.

    Russia actually has one that goes into the water a distance then shoots up like a missile into the upper portion of its target.

    It was clearly [Iran/Saudia Arabia/Yemen/Israel/Russia/United States] with the [mine/torpedo/artillery/flying torpedo] that did it!
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    You left out Houthi Rebels and China.

    Who the fuck is John Bolton to keep getting put into positions to get this country into war and our military killed? Trump was supposed to drain the swamp but now employs Bolton one of the biggest gators in it.

    All of this is horseshit. Trump bailed on the Iran deal for no reason other than to start this war. Iran was in compliance.

    TDS is getting out of hand.
    See what I mean?

    Wrong as usual. I never said the ships weren't attacked. I am saying Trump, or whoever controls him, has been planning this war with Iran from day 1, or possibly before that.

    No American ships were attacked. There was no attack on American soil. No Americans killed. This is just the fucking war machine deciding to kill innocent people over oil, money, and land, again.

    And who starts cheering on the war machine? The people who don't have to go fight and die in it.

    Right, sure. You're not saying the ships weren't attacked, just that this was a setup for those poor misunderstood people over in Iran because Trump has been itching to go to war. Even though Trump has easily been one of the least warlike presidents we've had since...shit...I don't even know.

    So Trump or whoever controls him pulled out of the Iran deal in the hopes that a year later Iran would fire on a couple of Japanese tankers and a US drone?

    I swear Back is just hooked up to The Washington Post 24/7 because this is basically what one of their articles alleged.

    It went something like:

    Trump was a meanie head and pulled out of the Iran deal.
    Iran did something in retaliation (I think they attacked a ship before this as well).
    Trump didn't learn the lesson Iran was teaching him and went ahead and placed more sanctions on Iran.
    Iran justifiably attacked two more ships because Trump is a meanie head.

    Excuse me if I'm a skeptical of anything presented as evidence to get us into war (yellow cake, aluminum tubes, WMDs) especially when Bolton is involved. This incident to me does not even come close to needing to form a "coalition" against Iran.
