    Iran is crazy enough to start crap. We have oil. The Nips do not. Great diplomatic signal as to my way or the highway.

    Don't think it was a sub--, more likely a mine

    What does this do to gas and oil prices?? 4 tankers mined last week and now 2 more attacked. They start sinking tankers in the gulf and fuel prices will go through the roof.

    We have been waiting for prices to go down. Took this as a signal and restocked all my fuel supplies. Rotating 5-6 month old fuel out for fresh.

    Imagine what would happen if this was a US ship.

    These news stories are all full of shit. First it was unexplained explosions, then torpedos, then limpet mines, now I am reading “shelling”.

    These people just spout bullshit. Nobody bothers to do any fact checking anymore but just publish whatever garbage info they happen to come across.

    We have enough oil to get by with.

    Maybe if the Irainians put a crunch on the rest of the civilized world for oil, they might wake up to the true intentions of Iran.

    Other than attacking Israel, let them have at the nations that don't want to deal with the bazzturds.

    I don't want to see any US troops killed/wounded for someone else's oil supply.

    after the last scuba & limpet mine attack in the harbor that avenue of attack probably got closed >>>> Iran has one of the better diesel sub fleets in the world - definitely a threat in those confined seaways - wouldn't count out those crazy SOBs keeping up the pressure ....

    one of the ships was Norwegian flagged - that's an attack on NATO and an open door for the US and half of europe to respond ....

    NATO, hah! That’s a joke. Just read this morning that Spain (NATO member) had a warship attached to the Lincoln carrier group and they just recalled that ship. So much for support from our allies. Trump is correct. Our supposed european allies are not trustworthy.

    That tanker is owned by a Norwegian company, but registered or ‘flagged’ in the Marshall Islands. The Marshalls are no longer a USA possession but they are closely associated with us. Many American shipowners flag in the Marshalls to receive the benefits of American association while still being able to hire foreign seamen.

    Let’s hope not.
    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll probably never need one again.
