Apparently, Iran planted mines, which recently exploded, on four foreign oil tankers. Moreover, it seems that Iran had a proxy do a rocket attack on the US embassy in Baghdad. Retired General Jack Keane has said that the commercial ships of all our allies--both in Europe and Japan--should be re-flagged; they should carry the US flag, instead of that of their respective countries. Moreover, they should be escorted by US warships. And if Iran then fires upon them...well, then appropriate action should be taken. Comments?
