Iran seizes foreign vessel, detains crew of 12 in the Strait of Hormuz

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard announced the seizure of a foreign tanker Thursday. Iran claims that the ship was smuggling a million gallons of oil through the Strait. ’The vessel that Iran towed to its waters after receiving a distress call, was later seized with the order from the court as we found out that it was smuggling fuel,’ the Guards said in a statement quoted by state television.

What’s with this headline? So when the British seize a ship, they detain the crew, but when Iran does the same, it’s “kidnapping”? The media wants this war. They are trying to stoke it!

That's not kidnapping. That's a sovereign country arresting suspects of a crime. The warhawk rhetoric from the US media is endless and dishonest. None of their children will have to fight in the wars they provoke...

UAE flagged tanker in international waters. smuggling oil I think not. kidnapping it is. international crime it is. UAE and Saudi Arabia are going to be pissed. if the USA doesn't get into a war with Iran... then mark my words: The kingdom of Saudi Arabia and her allies will be. if not now eventually they will be the first to the fight. just like Yemen.
