  • Hijacked tankers

    Iran has 3 oil tankers (not ours) should we do anything ? What ? Be realistic, attacking the tankers would probably result in them being burned.

    BTW, anybody know who owns the oil ?

    No attack if they are not owned by USA firms and no Americans are being held hostage. Let other countries take care of their own problems with the Iranians.

      I think we should bide our time and let the sanctions work.

        Let Iran and the countries that own the tankers work it out. We don't get much oil if any from the middle east any more do we?

          Best I gathered from the evening news, only two tankers have been "hijacked" (pirated, they were int'l waters).
          Both tankers are UK owned.
          T. May may have stepped down as PM, but she's still recognized as "in charge"
          Mays' weak leadership is being exploited by the Iranians.
          Kinda like Chamberlain and Hitler.
          At some point, that bunch of ragheads are gonna boil over.
          Then it's gonna be, "Katie, bar the door!"
          Iran's hatred for Israel is so great, that will be their first target along with American forces in the UAE and American naval forces in the Arabian sea.

            If an ally gets into a shooting war with Iran, do we join in ?

              President Trump said tonight he can tighten the sanctions more.

                They already had 1 tanker plus 2 more today. BTW, do you know who owns the oil in the tankers ? Big $$$$.

                    This is the situation above - say GB tries to take back tanker and shots are fired ? That is the situation, what do we do ?

                      Trump would probably withdraw from NATO. He doesn't want a war going into the 2020 elections.

                        I thought NATO was intended to protect the home land.

                          NATO's Article 5 says "An armed attack upon one...shall be considered an attack upon them all."
                          It doesn't say anything about homeland.

                            What if they are on the offensive and not defensive ??

                              Two tankers were Uk I read. Not sure about a third. The goat f***ers are trying to hold us into firing first. I say sit back and wait for them to miss off the rest of the world too.
