Gulf of Tonkin Event to start the War on Iran?
The details on how the ships were damaged are very scarce. Was it a bomb? A mine? An RPG?
An American military team assessing blasts that damaged four commercial ships off the coast of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Sunday has blamed Iran or Iranian-backed proxies using explosive charges, a source told Fox News on Monday evening.
Each ship had a 5-to-10-foot hole in it, near or just below the water line, a U.S. official told The Associated Press. A Norwegian-flagged vessel, two Saudi oil tankers and a bunkering tanker flagged in Sharjah, one of the UAE's seven emirates, all suffered similar damage Sunday.
The UAE asked the U.S. to help investigate the damage, which Gulf officials have characterized as sabotage. UAE's state media said Sunday there had been "no injuries or fatalities on board the vessels" and "no spillage of harmful chemicals or fuel."
The U.S. has warned ships that "Iran or its proxies" could be targeting maritime traffic in the region, and America has moved additional ships and aircraft into the region.
The linked article does not blame Iran for that event, it threatens them if anything happens. But this is what the media does anymore isn't it? States something happened when it didn't. Hmm I'm wondering if Trump will call out the fake news here?
President Trump on Monday warned Iran that it will “suffer greatly” if the country does “anything” in the form of an attack amid new tensions with Tehran.
Asked by reporters in the Oval Office if the United States is going to war with Iran, Trump said, “We will see what happens with Iran. If they do anything, it’ll be a big mistake.”
He added, “If they do anything, they will suffer greatly.”
The warning that Iran was going to attack US interests came from our buddies in Israel. Gee what a surprise huh? And Bibi is once again saying that Iran has to much of the stuff that goes into nuclear weapons. I think he's been saying that for over 10 years. Cry wolf too many times and eventually someone will believe you...
This another thing that Sun Tsu advised. "When your enemy is looking for any excuse to wipe you out do something stupid and give it to them."
