There is a simple explanation.

The "politics was over" and the media had their day.

Indeed, she was released from MILITARY incarceration and allowed to proceed. About 0.5 of a millisecond later, the non military PORT STATE INSPECTORS became involved and the rest is history.

Other than prostitution, literally, you are dealing with the oldest industry on the planet.

Why do you think I am borderline OCD with ancient archeology?????????

I've been there - that phone call from (now me) - "Captain, you will proceed under US military guidance - is that understood"

[see's $250,000/year pay packet waved in front of him]

MAERSK TIGRIS which flies another flag to avoid heavy taxes but the MAERSK ALABAMA prompted a large U.S. Navy response so Obama is just stalling here because he knows his deal with Iran just got ruined in 3,2,1, .

The owner of MAERSK will fry Obozos butt if he doesn't get his ship and people back soon.

M/V Maersk Tigris is being legally (by international law) detained by Iranians to claim collection on a decades old debt. See page 17.

M/V Maersk Alabama was boarded by pirates, conducting piracy, a crime under international law.

The difference is exercising recognized maritime rights versus, well, exercising recognized maritime crime.

Yeah I just read all the previous post and seen the excuse they are using. This is the second time in a week they have harassed commercial cargo in that area. Seems they need to be taught a lesson. They should get a huge tanker, load it with wild hogs (all with remotely detonated suicide vest on) every tenth hog needs to have a GoPro strapped to it and let it float into their waters with the hogs in containers so they have no idea whats in them LMAO. When they take it to port, remotely open all the containers! The Hogs would chase all those nuts all over the area and wipe it out.

That would be PRICELESS!

Honestly to all the decent Americans you need to keep your Neanderthals offline.

As nice as that would be, it would flat out be completely, un-American, as in, he can speak his voice even if it is derp, derpity, derped up.

These, though, are the people that when the shapoopy hits the fan, will either be taken out first because they go guns a blazing without any tactical or strategic thought, or cower and wimper and get left behind.

They were after a Maersk company ship, as Maersk owed money to an Iranian company for a large shipment that never arrived. I think they saw the Marshall Islands flag and decided to 'push' the ship into Iranian waters just a little bit. The US is will defend The Marshall Islands if attacked, but in a commercial maritime situation, we aren't fully bound to. I thin k the Iranian company might get it's money back.

That's right, everybody that has any inkling of disagreement with America or Americans is Russian obviously.

This really highlights the fact that there is only TWO sides on this world, AMERICAN, and NOT-AMERICAN. And being American is a very VARIABLE definition that seems to change WEEKLY.

It is like not being AMERICAN (by that weekly definition) is second rate, second class.



Funny I did not say your name. So how do you know i am talking about you?

Seeing post on this subject If the company owes soem money they should pay for it. It s not as if MERSK cant afford it.

This. The Iranians might very well be dicks and trouble makers, but if the line owed them money, they'd be dicks and troublemakers with legal standing.

Lesson: don't owe money to fanatics with Silkworm missles and pass through their waters.

By agreement the US is as responsible for the safety of the Marshall Islands and their citizens in the same manner they are responsible for US citizens.

Iran has a right to use lawful means to collect civil fines. They have no right to force a ship into their territorial waters by firing warning shots at it to to get it there.

True but as I look into it I don't think the captain went into their waters by accident. He was coerced to do so. The incident a week prior is they send out patrol boats and make you steer to avoid them like Hurding cattle. also explains all the twists and turns he was avoiding hitting them until they got him into their waters. And if your a captain and people are firing your bot worried about where you are at the moment your worried about getting our of their.

Next any decision made by an Irani an court is not legally binding The case needed to be brought before the world court of course that probably didn't happen because they would have lost.

Which agreement?

Please quote the exact portion of the agreement that states this.

Or are you just blowing smoke?

Well, the Iranians are known for such shennanigans because they want an excuse to make trouble. They are also known to alter navigation aids in hopes a ship or aircraft gets close enough to justify response.
