 They cant win a war against the U.S. 

Obviously they can't "win" but if you listen to the experts they ain't Iraq, they can put up a damn good fight and possibly make it a Vietnam or what Afghan did to the Soviets. 

 

Much like China in the trade war they know they have the upper hand because of the election.

You'd think the US would have satellite imagery that shows what happened unless someone clandestinely placed mines in the area.

Trump has a better handle on this type of action than any President that we have had. He is not from the War Industrial Complex that past presidents have supported.

Trump is a stooge who put Bolton and Pompeo in charge.

I would tell Iran that the next time they attack a ship we attack and sink one of theirs.

Japanese Oil Tanker Owner Says U.S. Is Wrong About Gulf Attack

 

https://www.thedailybeast.com/japanese-oil-tanker-owner-says-us-is-wrong-about-gulf-attack

 

Yukaka Katada, the owner of one of the stricken oil tankers crippled in explosions in the Gulf of Oman on Thursday, says the U.S. is wrong about the way the attack was carried out. Speaking at a press conference in Tokyo on Friday, he contradicted Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and the U.S. Navy, which released a video that purports to show an Iranian patrol boat removing a limpet mine from the port side of the Kokuka Courageous. Katada said his ship was attacked on the starboard side by a flying object, not by a mine. “It seems that something flew towards them. That created the hole, is the report I’ve received,” Katada said, according to the Financial Times. “It seems there was a high chance they were attacked by a flying object. The impact was well above the water. I don’t think it was a torpedo.” The Japanese ship owner did not say who might be responsible for the attack. Iran has vehemently denied it was involved.

Too many possibilities and motives from multiple parties. Needs to be thoroughly investigated and then the perps need punished. Iran leadership doesn't have full control due to economic hardships lately. Could be rogues trying to start something. Could be a setup from someone with a grudge like the Saudis. Could be the Russians as well. They like this type of covert shit to start problems like in Ukraine. And then we could always find out its some corrupt ass American politician somewhere.

The whole situation is very strange. The ship captain is saying they all saw something flying at the hull and that it wasn’t a torpedo. If they’re correct, which maybe they aren’t, that’s a missile. It’s hard to get your head around the account. Apparently Iran fires on an American drone (from our account) with a SAM a couple hours before this happened. I can’t wrap my mind around the Iranians using a missile against a ship. That has never been their strategy going all the way back to the encounters we had in the 80s.

I believe US sources were claiming that they were using mines. The boats need to be towed back to port and inspected. The damage will reveal what type of weaponry was used. Also, I find it hard to believe its a missile simply because Radars would have had some sort of track. USS Bainbridge wasn't far away and it has the AEGIS system so it would have had tracking data on a missile I would think.

I wouldn’t think so either, but if you read the account of the captain, he was pretty adamant about it. He said directly he thought the US was wrong and that he and his crew saw something flying in the air. If it was a mine it was a sticky mine (for lack of better vernacular). Which is quite possible. The Iranians have been known to do this. I still don’t see how our intelligence was immediately blaming the Iranian Government for it without even so much as inspecting it.

Where is Colin Powell and his vial of anthrax when we need him? 

 

Honestly, is there anyone trustworthy in this administration that they could roll out to try to sell this next war?
