In the real news department, a couple of tankers were attacked. Wonder who was behind this. Can't imagine that the Iranians were. Almost seems like someone is trying to provoke us into attacking Iran.

The tankers got attacked because the world has so much respect for strong man Trump. Or someone is trying to goad him into a fight. Or it is a false flag because he wants a war because his pole numbers are drooping?

Trump. Three birds with one stone. He gets the war he wants with Iran, creates a diversion from his multitude of felonious enterprises, and raises oil prices for his buddies in the oil business.

So it is not a massive show of deferential respect by Iran for our hero president as so wonderfully portrayed in the Jon McNaughton paintings?

well video was released of iran removing a device off the hull of one of the ships. witnesses saw the iranian boat as well. why do we care? narrow body of water where our ships operate and a trade route. our naval vessels, commercial vessels, and those of allied countries operate there. this is open state sponsored terrorism. the rub is that response should be united nation driven not us driven. israel and us have both been itching to smack iran in the mouth, so yeah, probably war

The U.S. doesn't have much credibility anymore, the U.N. will not get involved in this.

"China, the European Union and others have called for restraint from all sides. Germany said the U.S. video was not enough to apportion blame for Thursday's attack." - Reuters

Company president Yutaka Katada said Friday he believes the flying objects seen by the sailors could have been bullets. He denied any possibility of mines or torpedoes because the damage was above the ship's waterline. He called reports of a mine attack "false."


I genuinely don't think Iran has the balls to try a stunt like that. The straights are extremely important to the entire world. Shenanigans going down there could very well lead to all out war.

i read a couple of articles on that. he wasnt there so is speculating based on limited information. crew saw iranian naval vessel and reported taking projectile fire as well. video analysis by experts via media agencies have also said object removed by iranian vessel appears to match the mine. in short, too early for you to make such statements

this entire thing seems fishy across the board to me. why would the ship report taking projectile fire and why would the iranian naval ship there, if it was indeed them, shoot at a tanker? almost makes me think they knew the mine was there and tried to detonate it before the tanker hit it. of course then there is the other one to think about. anyhow playing mine games in that area is nothing new for iran. also, now we are claiming attacks by iran on two of our drones

Not too early, the trump administration's credibility was gone before this attack, they've been putting out lies on an hourly basis. Why would the owner of the tanker say something not true?

Are you aware of the U. S backed coup that overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran and replaced it with a brutal dictatorship?

Didn't say you did say that, just asking a question. you need to ask "who gains what? in a situation like this.

All3 made the point that we have been manipulating Iran and deciding the world since 1954.

The world has little basis to believe the Americans.

all3 is pretty spot on about the coup and the Shah and such, , ,

While going to FSU in 1976 one of our house-mates was an "activist"; perhaps far too left for my tastes but, , , , The anti-Shah Iranian students would meet at our house. They would come over the back fence with paper bags over their heads. The one house mate was fairly confused until I ask them to take a look at the big black sedan that would come and park in front, AKA "The Shah's Men"!!

of course not. nobody does except the most die hard trumpers. does that automatically means that someone who wasn't even there is completely correct about the situation and our country is lying as you implied? no. thus my comment about waiting for all the information to come out first

What I meant to imply was that-Our credibility is gone- it was gone before this incident. That is what happens when you continually lie. People and countries stop believing you. trump in particular, and the U.S. in general. Bush II 's war is another example. A real shame if it turns out Iran is behind this. It would be nice if the U.S. could lead the free world but at this point they look at trump and expect lies.

Creepy Mullet's credibility never existed. Bolton is an even more dangerous nihilist than fat sloppy bannons.
He helped create endless war for america before. Now he wants even more. (Somebody need to off this swine....)
Now he wants yet another excuse to get our beautiful young war fighters: aka the baddest motherfuckers on the planet.
Into yet another useless excuse for them to get shredded, maimed, and killed.
For absolutely no effective objective or purpose.....

Your stinking traitorous orange messiah is who said (or was directed to say by his commissar political handlers) that somehow it had become somewhat less than great.

got around the block. article didnt say anything about trolls originating in the state dept. interesting read none the less. now it is entirely possible that state is funding/directing these groups, but the article didn't link them or imply so. both iran and ncri playing cyber games
It's unclear who is behind the accounts, but their positions mirror the positions of the MEK and what is seen as its international political arm, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI). Both have consistently pushed for regime change in Iran, earning allies in and close to the Trump administration, despite the organization formerly being labeled by the State Department as a terrorist group, a designation some experts believe it should still have.
The MEK has a history of running online disinformation campaigns. Al-Jazeera has documented a Russian Internet Research Agency-style troll operation run out of Albania, interviewing former MEK members who detailed how the organization controlled thousands of accounts to spread propaganda about regime change and other political aims.
In addition to the online campaigns being carried out by people sympathetic to the MEK's perspective, Iran's ruling regime also appears to have engaged in its own political manipulation attempts.
Late last month, both Facebook and Twitter announced that they had deleted thousands of Iranian accounts that were engaged in what Facebook's chief of security Nathaniel Gleicher called "coordinated inauthentic behavior." The accounts appeared to have been created to mislead by posing as news organizations, journalists, and under other false identities, and to spread information about "political and social issues in Iran and globally," according to Yoel Roth, Twitter's head of site integrity. Both companies had previously deleted batches of accounts originating in Iran that they identified as being a part of a network trying to influence political discourse.

you are just going to take the trump administration's word that it was an Iranian gov't operation? Was it flying an Iranian flag? Do you think that nobody else has access to the same weapons that Iran uses? You think the U.S. should be the police force on that side of the world and regulate a nearly landlocked body of water? When the nations surrounding that area are some of the richest in the world. We don't need that oil.

"Starting to remove a lot of troops" Trump says of the Middle East on the day his administration has announced 1,000 troops are being sent to the region.

trump had been toning down the rhetoric, almost as if someone told him his poll numbers would be down if we went to war. iran maybe senses weakness and is flexing a bit

Bolton is the captain of the ship. He only needs to burst in on trump and ask him "are you going to let them humiliate you like this? The world is watching and their wrist slaps are a mockery of the consequences they should be facing."

Nope. We will see some cruise missiles headed their way, Knock around their ports, I am guessing. That will be followed by progs going full on hysterical yet again. They will talk about how Trump is going to start a nuclear war, how Trump has ruined America's reputation, and how Trump personally murdered innocent Iranian women and children and should be brought up on war crimes. The vast majority of Americans will support Trump's actions, however, and progs will soon move to the next ginned-up outrage. Trump will move closer to re-election.

Do you think it would be ok to kill civilians because a drone was shot down? And Bolton is correct. They are planning the retaliatory strike as I type.

Am I mistaken or weren't they complying with the international agreement they signed? Wasn't Trump the one that tore it up and doubled down on sanctions?

probably not blow up tankers as a threat to halt 30% of the global oil trade. probably wouldnt shoot down an aircraft in international waters of another nation that could kick the shit out of us in a fight. just a guess

ignoring the fact that your question is totally irrelevant to his comment and my reply to him, i will try to answer anyway. yup trump did that. as to iran complying or not, depends who you ask. they said they did, we said they weren't during both obama/trump admins. they did violate the heavy water constraint two inspections in a row, though barely. they did ballistic missile testing in violation. the issue with nuclear propulsion i believe was in violation as well. there were other issues if i recall correctly regarding access and interference. anyway you look at it, it is a clusterfuck that trump made worse

You defended us and blamed Iran. There are a dozen ways that is wrong, but i'll simply point out that we killed tens of thousands in the conflict with Iraq and a great many of those were innocents, so we are anything but innocent when viewing the big picture of the Middle East.

And no, according to the others who signed onto the nuclear accord, Iran wasn't breaking the agreement. Small infractions, maybe, but as a whole they did as they were told. We bailed and there are consequences to this action.

Why did Trump warp the reality of his pulling back from a counter attack by the US and why has Trump chosen to do nothing at all? Well, he has done something, he is taking the path of the same failing ideas of diplomatic pressure that Bush did 15 years ago.

Putin is certainly smarter, but his goal is rebuild the Russian empire and neutralize the US. Yes winning. So much.

Looks like we flew a done through their airspace, and they shot it down as it was making its getaway. Not sure why you think that this is some evidence that the US is not the primary aggressor. War pigs are trying everything to provoke Iran, and the world doesn't trust the word of the Americans. When trump starts looking like the reasonable one, watch out...

I think trump got a phone call from Putin, and he's trying to put his best spin on it.

Can you imagine the look on Bolton's face?
