US blames Iran for mysterious ’torpedo’ attacks

US blames Iran for mysterious ’torpedo’ attacks

Without citing evidence, Bolton and Pompeo blamed Iran for attacks on Norwegian and Japanese tankers. The attacks came while Japanese PM Abe was in Tehran to encourage peace, and as the EU continues to broadly reject American claims of Iranian subterfuge justifying a further build-up of US military in the region. Iran denied the accusation, saying that the US was the only country who had a motive.

Just wait until you see our made up evidence..... Let me guess next we hear weapons of mass destruction. The warmongering makes me sick.

Not liking this whole situation. Hoping this doesn't turn into a Gulf of Tonkin type deal, but with Bully Bolton in the cabinet, I can't help but think that's exactly where we're headed.

Super easy solution to Iran: Every time they attack a tanker we bomb one of their oil refineries.

1. USS Maine 2. Lusitania 3. Gulf of Tonkin 4. Now this When will we ever learn? Why would Iran attack us if they know we’re looking for any excuse to attack them?

This wouldn't be the same as WOMD incident, if the Iranians confirmed the attack

if Iran is allowed to get a bomb they will destroy isreal, this is a given based on their adherence to Islam and the teachings of the qoran. it sickens me to think anyone would trust a Hardline Islamic nation to not act when they have shown they will do everything in their power to lie cheat and steal to gain power. they are doing exactly what the qoran tells them to do to further the influence of Islam. they will act if they have the means to do so. destroying they're capabilities is Paramount, they know they cannot stand against the us in a war, so they are doing everything they can to aquire nuclear weapons. they should be destroyed. and I support a military resolution, even if these turn out to be false flag attacks.

I bet there were incubator babies on those oil ships as well. And those smaller ships taking off unexploded mines had WMD on board whilst setting fire to aid vans.

Torpedos hit below the waterline not above. Maybe the ships cap blew ballasts to raise it?
