There was a time when journalists would have gone chasing after the crews of the Tankers to find out what happened.

Now they go chasing after Mike Pompeo and Jeremy Hunt to find out 'what happened'.

Investigative journalism is no more...and any potential whistleblowers are either rotting in jail or on the run.

The Iranians are not Arabs.

But with John Bolton around and Trump being like Netanyahu's puppet its not a good combination.

This is The Handmaid's Tale backstory. Rogue American elements do an act of terrorism and pin it on Iran. Lucky for Trump they didn't completely copy the Handmaid's Tale backstory!!

A U.S drone has been shot down overnight in international air space in the Strait of Hormuz by an Iranian S2A missile.

I don't think it has been established where it was when it was shot down. The Iranians are saying it was in Iranian airspace.

Iran is divided. The Revolutionary Guard are governed by the religious not the government. There is a long history of Iran attacking shipping.

All this Iranian aggression is not going to end well. We are into the tit for tat stage now and i expect an American response with 48hrs.

No one wants to say this, but he has zero chance of being re-elected, not a hope in hell.
Keep on believing. Trump will get 4 more years.

Its all eerily happening in the build up to a US election year.

If the US are in a full scale war with Iran by November of next year the Trump walks straight back into the White House.
