Default Iran Topedos Oil Tankers!!!

1 Norwegian tanker, and 1 Japanese tanker.

We've moved a battle group into the area!

QUESTION!!!!

What has Norway, and Japan done?

Why are WE spending millions of tax dollars a day, risking American lives, and flexing our military muscles, while all I'm hearing from the two "victim countries" is?

Well, I ain't hearing anything from them.🤗

Already been posted. And the US Navy and the AE is now saying it was sea mines not torpedoes.
Iran is the blame. Also possibly a flying object. That's why I posted that there are conflicting reports
about this incident. The battle group was already there.

Dee is correct; what has Norway or Japan done about those mullahs damaging their ships?

According to today's news, those Iranians have detained whole crews of those ships...maybe they will do as Obama did, and pay ransom!

Europe also relies on petroleum from the gulf...so where in.. &^#% ...is that wonderful EU ?

That is a good point I wondered about that from the get go. A Navy Helecopter spotted an Iranian ship trying
to remove a dud mine from one of the tankers. I guess they didn't want to leave any evidence behind.
Where is the AE, they were so upset about this they went crying to the UN.

Dee, the Japanese PM was visiting with the Iranian Ayatollah at the time of this incident. Talking peace talks.
We really don't need that waterway anyhow especially if it's laced with mines.

No doubt shootall, our military could turn Iran into a glass punch bowl in a week, but what would we get in return?

Middle eastern enemies more bitter than before.

And then we go back and rebuild what we tore up.

Thats never made sense to me.

For the last 80 years we've been failing at "nation building". Its never worked.

I say let everybody fight their own fights.

He!l, we can't even got'em to pay for our ammo.

Two pair of attacks, major but not fatal damage. Almost like someone was sending a message. Someone wanting attention. Reminded of the DPRK and their missile launches. I read the Iranians are having difficulty selling their own oil due to the sanctions.

Looks like limpet mines, placed from the surface that anyone with a row boat could deploy. If I was Iran, this would be a good choice vs a cruise missile or torpedo that has a return address. (Incase someone happens to be watching).

Dee makes a great point.

Ammunition is like firewood. The more you have, the warmer you feel.
