An Iranian and 2 Oil tankers are have been identified in the video taken by US military.

An Iranian vessel that has been identified from parade videos has been identified. Its an Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps Gashti class patrol boat.

Its removing something in the video from the Kokuka Courageous . It's a Japanese owned Oil Tanker.

What we don't know for sure is what its removing and what the Iranian vessel did before that.

The Americans say its a limpet mine. That's unclear though.

The US say the Iranians placed it there and that the footage of the Iranians removing an object from the damaged vessel proves they put that object there and it was a mine.

Nothing shows the Iranians putting anything there.

However you have to ask yourself WHY would Iran remove anything from a damaged Oil Tanker?


Its important to note though.
The crew of one of the Kokuka Courageous, say it was a flying object that attacked them.

The Japanese ship owner has said the US is wrong.
Yukata Katada,the president of the company that RUNS the Kokuka Courageous says he didn't think there was a bomb or anything attached to the side of the Tanker.


It's all very strange.

What WAS the Iranian vessel removing and why?

I mean if it's not a mine why don't they just say what it was?

This has nothing to do with Israel stop that.

Any Excuse to blame the jews.

Either Iran is to blame or the US. We don't know yet. Israel has nothing to do with it.

Any number of hostile government actors in the area could have something to do with it. Not that Israel is top of my list of suspects.

This is not a nation vrs nation war.

This is the oil industry and an attack on the oil industry.

Interesting Saudi Arabi is being Hawkish...they want action against Iran. For obv reasons.

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2019/...090730002.html

They want international military response.


This is not about nationality its about the oil industry.

I would doubt its a govt acting alone.

He means Saudi or the UAE trying to implicate Iran.

It could have been Iranians but I have yet to see how they benefit.

Saudi's are very eager for retaliation. Might have been them.

I would say Saudi alone no. Saudi the US and the oil industry ..maybe. I sense private sector and American involvement.

The Americans would have to be involved then. And probably the private oil sector.

No doubt Israel will be left with living with it after everyone trashes their neighborhood.

The UK has publicly stated Iran did it too.

No doubt when Boris is PM he will be bring some common sense into it.
