The tankers were not carrying crude petroleum. One was carrying methanol, the other gasoline.....hence no oil slicks. And probably no affect on falling oil prices, or world tanker tonnage.
The Iranians do not typically operate in the Sea of Oman, but do claim they rescued both tanker crews. They claim they were tracking an Israeli sub in the area.
Personally, I see no advantage to Iranians provoking a surprise devastating attack by joint US and zionist forces; as their oil market is basically China, Pakistan, and India.
If Trump falls for this one he will be forever branded zionist and wedded to the deep state afterall. True colors coming out in this Kibuki theater.
Putin is claiming the attack came from 'unspecified state actors'. And since Russian crew were on board amounts to an attack on the Federation .
Interesting to note on the heels of this latest incident the smart Christian Sarah Sanders is leaving the Trump administration. Perhaps she knows what's coming next and wants no part in it.
