But at least one pilot relayed to command that it was American, was told to hit it anyway. Whatever the truth, I don't buy it being an accident.

I believe the US sailors over either government or Israeli military.

The "source" for that claim is unvetted intelligence documents and anonymous sources. That's pretty flimsy. I'll admit it's within the realm of possibility that they knew, but what exactly would the motive be? What did they gain? What goal was accomplished by attacking the ship but not sinking it so everyone knew they did it?

Don't know, a very good question though, they might of had every intention to sink it, but cooler heads prevailed, or got so far in and realised they were caught? and of course, we must entertain that it was a mistake.

I suppose we will never fully know.

What was their belief?..I think I know.

An interesting read

If you read the Wikipedia page you posted yesterday and know a little military history, the most likely explanation is that it was a mistake. It reads like a dozen safety briefings I got on other accidents that result from a series of unlikely events steamrolling into one big mess. It happens more than people realize. Almost 1/4th of US combat deaths in the first Gulf War were from friendly fire accidents. Was that some kind of conspiracy too? Or is war just chaotic?

a 1/4..wow, no, I have no conspiracy about that, chaos for sure.

Blah blah. This is becoming more and more boring everyday. Neocons in US have been drooling over war with Iran for over 4 decades.
Now that ordinary Iranian citizens are deprived from basic human rights like access to medicine because of unhumane and disgusting sanctions of US trump regime, we really don't care anymore. Neocons in US should know that we have nothing to lose and we're mentally prepared for an extensive war. So.....

*P.S: when i first joined this forum i was all like "lets have peace instead of war" but now that my close relative who has breast cancer can't get her hands on the needed medicine because of sanctions, I'm all for it. Lets get this sorted out immediately


Interesting, what part of Iran do you live in?

Your complaint is odd. Iran is still doing normal business with Russia and China and I'm fairly certain their is no sanction on humanitarian supplies. If those kind of supplies are in short supply it's due to something the Iranian Theocracy is doing and not due to any sanctions.

Since Iran has access to things like medical supplies from Russia and China why would they be in short supply?
what you're saying is nonsense and it completely differs from what happens on the ground. link the truth is medical companies simply refrain from doing business with Iran because its just a headache to do so. As simple as that. The fact that you don't hear from this everyday is because firstly Iran produces 97% of its medical needs by herself and secondly, no one gives a damn what people of Iran have to endure. Just like yemen. Yemenis are getting massacred and no one gives a damn.

You named Russia and China? Clearly you have no idea about pharmaceutical companies. When a company produces a new drug they're the only ones who can legally produce it for years to come. That's why. Russia and China cannot produce them

Tell your government to stop supporting terrorism and pursuing nuclear weapons. Sanctions go bye bye. Simple.

That's a completely separate issue. I'm not exactly pleased with our relationship with SA either. The fact still remains the Iranian leadership is the reason the Iranian people are suffering.

Someone should tell the US government that also. Actually people voice it but the government doesn't listen.

Meh, I think it's the U.S. leadership, because Iran, a sovereign nation wont bend over, even though they kinda did, then the agreement was torn up by the grand dealmaker.

That agreement was a joke. It accomplished precisely nothing. I suggest you watch Netanyahu's speech to Congress in 2015. He lays out everything that's wrong with it so anyone can understand. The Obama administration came out in response and said he didn't know what he was talking about because Israel wasn't party to the negotiations and didn't know what was in the deal yet (keep in mind, they didn't say he was wrong about how awful such a hypothetical deal would have been, they just said that's not the deal we're making). Then everything he said they were doing ended up being part of the final deal.

Wow! You are talking out of your alpha sierra sierra.
What a load of ABSOLUTE RUBBISH you are spreading and what a disgusting level of disrespect you're showing for the dead American servicemen and the survivors of the USS Liberty, by twisting the truth of their deaths and injuries.

As someone who actually KNOWS something about the topic in question (The U.S.S. Liberty "Incident"), and some of the survivors of that act-of-war against America, allow me to set your nonsense and propaganda straight.
But before I begin, I just want you to know that you literally disgust me and that I hope you realize that what you are doing by twisting history is you are spitting in the faces and on the graves of the Americans who were betrayed. If you ever dared to spread those lies to my face, or to one of the survivors face-to-face... I better not finish that sentence.

VERIFIABLE FACTS:
1)The Israelis knew damn well that it was a US Navy SIGINT ship when they did multiple low-altitude flybys of the ship (ident procedure) with the USS liberty clearly showing color with their flags raised, clear and visible during daytime.
2)Much later, on Israeli TV, the pilots were interviewed and one said he REPEATEDLY communicated to command "I DON'T WANT TO DO THIS! THEY ARE OUR ALLIES!". He was ordered to press regardless.
3) The ISRAELIS were ACTIVELY JAMMING the freqs of the USS Liberty; They MUST have known which ship it was, in order to know exactly which frequencies to jam (And they jammed ALL of her frequencies~ she was therefore incapable to communicate far). There is a ZERO percent likelihood that the Israelis did not know they were attacking an American vessel for hours. In fact, they even knew which individual US ship they were targeting; hence the successful jamming of the right frequencies.
4) For HOURS they continued strafing U.S.S The Liberty, firebombed the deck and fired two torpedoes at it; in hopes of sinking the Liberty. Lifeboats with survivors were also strafed which is, let me remind you, according to international law a war-crime and a crime against humanity.
5) For HOURS the USS Liberty transmitted their identity and pleaded with the attackers that THEY WERE ALLIES, and that the Israelis should CEASE their offensive~ response: more bullets and more bombs.
6)IRONICALLY, it was the approach of a SOVIET Signals Intelligence ship into that theater, that prompted the Israelis to discontinue the botched attack and allow the Liberty to limb back to safety. Yes, RUSSIANS saved AMERICANS from ISRAELIS; just by being there and documenting the event.
7) LBJ's response when he heard The Egyptians are attacking the Liberty was he sent a nuclear strike-package to flatten Cairo. Less than 4 minutes before the release of their nuclear armament the commander of the strike-group got the order to abort and not nuke Cairo.
8) American survivors/sailors of the USS Liberty were de-briefed and told to never speak of this incident to the outside world. Only after the passing of time and the coming together of the survivors for anniversaries and remembrances, the truth slowly started to come out as they mustered the courage to act against their orders of secrecy.

Israels main excuse to this day is that they did not know it was an American ship.
Even though their pilots made visual contact and saw that it was an AMERICAN ship.
Even though their EW platforms identified and jammed the specific frequencies that Israel KNEW belonged to a US Navy Ship: USS Liberty.
Even though their own pilots appeared on Israeli TV and said that they knew damn well that they were trying to sink that ship to blame it on Egypt and get Uncle Sam involved.
Even though the USS Liberty, from the start of the attacs, FOR HOURS, radiod their identity and told the Israelis to cease fire.
Even though the survivors, also on the American side, have come forward and told the truth of what happened on that day in June 1967.

You are not a fair and honest player as this information requires minimal amounts of research to uncover, establish and validate. You are purposefully spreading false information (DIS Information) and it enrages me beyond belief to see you spit on the lives of the 34 servicemen who died on that day, and 170+ more that were injured.
And I PROMISE you, if their current propaganda "We didn't now it was an American Ship" gets debunked and they are somehow forced to ADMIT that they purposefully attacked; they will just use another excuse. Mainly "It was soooooo long ago. Why do you care? Israel isn't what it used to be" bla bla bla. DONT FALL FOR IT!

I hope to never see you around here. You make me nauseous.

For anyone (not you) actually interested in the truth, here is a good place to start:

You do realize the Liberty attack happend more than fifty years ago and is entirely irrelevant in todays world?
Never mind the fact that Israel apologized more than 60 million US-$ in compensation years and years ago.

Believe what you want about it but move on already.

I' ll never understand how anyone could think trotting out this incident to prove a point is anything but ridiculous.

Oh hahahaha! Are you serious? Even though I expected this kind of a reply from some of the Zio-shills, I still find it really hard to believe that a supposed human being can be so intellectually deficient, so lacking in basic wisdom (or SO GLUED to the Zionist Agenda) and so apologetic to Israel, that they try to downplay what happened; because the truth of the matter would mean there was MALICIOUS INTENT and MANIPULATION of the USA by ISRAEL (And the same thing may very well be going on to this day~ I for one know for a fact that nothing has changed).

9/11 happened almost 20 years ago. Why do we still care?
The holocaust happened 80 years ago; why should we still care?
A teenager got raped by a gang 15 years ago; why do we even bother to care?
It was all soooooooo long ago!
As if that is any excuse!

You sir, need to re-establish what it means to be a walking, eating, breathing, thinking, SENTIENT human being because judging by your post alone I can not see any signs of intelligence, although there are some signs of sentience.

Good day!

I'm dead serious. The Liberty incident is irrelevant. Both the US and Israel have long since moved on. You're free to be butthurt about it for all eternity, but history will move forward with or without you.
It would not be the first or the last time a nation got away whacking some intelligence asset - if indeed that happened. But so what. They don't call it realpolitik for nothing.
