    Whoever did this didn’t seem to worry about local environment - sinking oils tankers is like the worst thing you can do!

    Looks to me like the Israeli's are up to their dirty tricks again. They have the most to gain by suckering the US to fight a proxy war on their behalf.

    Pretty serious charge with no evidence.

    The question is who has the resources and motive for this attack. Iran is on the defense right now with unsubstantiated claims by the war mongering Bolton. Question is who has the resources and motive to pull this off. Previous history implicates the Israelis.

    Could be anyone. US or Israel or even saudi's false flag, Houthi trying to get people to get out of their country and stop killing them. Iran pointing out again to the Saud's how it will act if they get started.

    I was watching a video yesterday on how well Iran could stand an assault. There is no question, US air has a massive advantage but Iran seems to have incredible air defenses so possibly a few surprises and not quite as easy as some would like.

    Why would Iran torpedo a Japanese ship when the Japanese leader was visiting Tehran at the time?

    Russia.

    They'd be the one profiting the most out of a conflict between Iran and the USA. They'd be selling weapons and intelligence to Iran and since the iranian oil trade would be stoped they'd also profit by providing oil in their place.

    Israel wouldn't profit from a conflict with Iran since as Iraq demonstrated, they get shot at even if they're not directly involved in the conflict. Hezbollah would immediately launch attack against israel and jews abroad.

    Israel profits greatly from instability in the middle east. That's why US troops are in Syria. We are helping them achieve what they call "Greater Israel."

    Oh I didn't know these bits of Information. That seems to rule Iran out then. They also rescued about 46 people.

    How does Israel profit from the instability in the ME? By selling more oranges?
    The only people who'd profit from closing the strait due to war would be the one selling oil to Europe without having to go through the strait. Guess who that is.

    Israel profits when its neighbors are unstable. That allows them to expand, as they and Donald have done in Golan, for one example. Israel is a belligerent country. It attacks its neighbors and supposed allies like US, back in 1967 with the USS Liberty. Israel thrives on war. It is very much a war profiteer.

    LOL...
    And her neighbors are pure angelic nations. Except for the fact that they invaded or tried to do so many, many times. Syria lost the Golan because they used it to invade Israel. And for your information, Israel wasn't a US ally in 1967. Relations weren't normalized until the mid 70's when they switch from french weapon systems to the USA.

    Iran has been making threats to do just what was done which makes them the prime suspect. If Israel got caught doing this it would destroy their relationship with us and they would never risk that. As for resources Iran has subs and Iran threatened to use them to shut down shipping.

    Reading this topic gives me hope. No one is jumping to accuse Iran for sure. I have no idea. People realize there is so much BS and false flags now days. I used to think that the USS Liberty was a conspiracy theory. Then the survivors started testifying before they died.

    It wouldnt be the first time they attacked us property under the guise of another nation in order to draw the US into a conflict.

    Its certainly something one should keep in mind.
