    the third was Liberian owned and was released, not sure who owned the oil.

      Ok, I don't think even Trump wants war with Iran or anybody else.
      First will come the sanction tightening.
      Next will come new, even tougher sanctions.
      The "Iraniacs" are low life sleeze bags.
      They are expert provocateurs.
      Every move they make is to get somebody to else to make the first move.

      jimbo, soggin, a week or so back, the UK navy caught an Iranian tanker headed to Syria with a load of Iranian oil in violation of sanctions.
      Pirating the two UK tankers is in retaliation for taking their tanker.

      As for what the UK does (did?) with the Iraniac ship or the oil? I have no idea! I don't know if forfeiture is the penalty for violating the sanctions or not.

        The Iraniacs seem to feel that we owe them one since 1988, when a U.S. Navy missile cruiser accidentally shot down an Iranian airliner flying in Iranian airspace, killing all 290 people on board.

          Another made up 'fact' you pulled out of your arse. That matter was considered settled a long time ago.

            If international law recognizes 50 miles off shore as a country border and the strait is 22 miles wide does that mean the strait is entirely in iran territory. ??

                It's simply tit for tat. Brits took one of their tankers, they take two of the brits. More important is why is there even an embargo. We broke the deal, not the Iranians. They were complying with the no nuke deal, we just unilaterally decided to pull out. So now Iran has no source of revenue and a very large middle class population.

                Why are we embargoing Iran anyway? They hate Iraqis not us. We should stay out of the middle east.

                  I don't think you are that uninformed rat.
                  Are you such a hard core liberal that you support I. Omar (D-WI)?

                    Let's not forget the chant, "Death to America!", burning American flags and presidential effigys.
                    Irans' burning desire to wipe Israel "off the map"!
                    Not to mention all the terrorist plots that have been planned and funded in Iran and carried out around the world.

                    Israel is the one sane point the U.S. has in the insanity of the middle east.

                        10-23-1983
                        220 Marines and 21 other military personnel killed in a terrorist attack in Beirut, Lebanon.
                        Ordered by Iran
                        -
                        Iran does not recognize Israel as a state, and provides support for Hamas, Hezbollah and Palestinian Islamic Jihad.
                        -
                        10-12-2000
                        USS Cole bombed in Aden, Yemen port.
                        Seventeen killed, 39 injured
                        al Queda (Iranian backed and funded) claims credit.

                        Tell me 99, should we forget these incidents?

                        How about the other multitude of terrorist attacks around the world committed by Iranian backed and funded groups?

                            Genius, I also posted a link to the incident in 1988. Apparently you don't know how to read. Payments were made from our government to Iran in the settlement.

                            You said " The Iraniacs seem to feel that we owe them one.."

                            Where in the hell did you get that little factoid? How in hell do you know what they 'feel'? Do you have a citation for their feelings? You're such a loser.

                              PH - I don't mean we owe them money. I mean they feel we are due for a payback.
                              You only need the read the first four paragraphs of my link to get that.
                              I know you must feel foolish, but control your temper.

                                Then you don't understand Iran and their ayatollahs.
