Gibraltar detains super tanker carrying oil to Syria

British Royal Marines and officials in Gibraltar have detained the supertanker Grace 1 suspected of carrying crude oil to Syria, in breach of EU sanctions. The government said it had reasonable grounds to believe that the Grace 1 was carrying its shipment of crude oil to the Banyas Refinery in Syria.

Who in the hell is at the helm in Britain? First they announce they'll do nothing about any Iranian treaty violations, then they flout US sanctions by helping create backdoor financial conduits to avoid US fines. Now they seize an Iranian vessel over Syria sanctions? Pick a side England!
