SEA STANDOFF Five Iranian boats ‘try to seize British oil tanker’ – forcing Royal Navy to ‘train weapons and warn them to back off’

Neal Baker
The Sun UK
7/10/19

EXCERPT:

FIVE Iranian boats reportedly tried to seize a British oil tanker off Iran yesterday - forcing a Royal Navy frigate to train its weapons on them.

Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard tried to take control of the vessel as it passed through the Strait of Hormuz - sparking a tense standoff in the Persian Gulf, US officials said.

But the HMS Montrose quickly trained its 30mm deck guns on the enemy fleet and warned them off, they added.

The British Heritage tanker was being escorted through the flashpoint region by the Montrose amid feverish tensions between Iran and the West.

But the Navy frigate was scrambled into action when the rival boats reportedly approached the oil tanker and demanded it change course into Iranian waters.

The problem is we continue to let them get away with this. The next step will be explosives in their boat that will detonate next to a oil tanker. They will claim they were fired on and it detonated. That's what is coming next, sink them before they get close.

A deputy commander of Iran's elite Revolutionary Guards today said that Britain and the United States will regret detaining [an Iranian] oil tanker [recently]. "Now an action that does not need ability but some stupidity has been carried out by them," Rear Admiral Ali Fadavi, a deputy Guards commander, said, according to Tasnim news agency. "The American government, and also England, should not have taken action if they had made the smallest calculation," he said.

"We had rented this ship and we carried the cargo. Their action was very silly and they will certainly regret it. Our reciprocal action will be announced."

NPR was hilarious this morning, talking about this incident. At first they stated what happened but called the IRG boats “allegedly Iranian”. Immediately after that they explained that it was natural for Iran to respond in that manner to the hostility of the increased sanctions (so much for “allegedly”). “Iran is suffering, they just want a way out” they breathlessly opined.

NPR = :lol:

Wasn't attacking oil tankers a concession that Ketchup Boy and Oblabla gave to Iran? Yes, I believe it was part of the Iran Peace Deal that allowed Iran to:

a) use $150 billion from America to fund their terrorism activities
B) finish their nuclear bomb
c) help them screw it on to one of their Chinese missiles
d) drop a nuke on Tel Aviv
e) hijack American and British naval vessels

I agree, but understanding some fates can be far worse than death, especially if you understand those fates can be much much better deterants.
IE if you are dealing with a fanatical Muslim play to those beliefs and use it against them. Such as instead of killing them outright a shower in pork grease or used feminine hygiene products.
This sends a message that your activities won't send you to heaven but very well hell can be a huge deterrent. Why risk your life if you think your all but guaranteed a trip to hell?
I look at it as a lifesaving measure, but unfortunately we have become so damned PC we care about the 'feelings' of people trying to kill or attack us.

NPR; New Pravda Radio. I'm out of words to describe what cat-box finds I consider that propaganda media to be. Its taxpayer funding needs to be cut yesterday.
