The U.S. military’s Central Command has released a video and some still photographs on June 14 that it says shows Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corp (IRGC) removing an unexploded limpet mine from one of the oil tankers targeted near the strategic Strait of Hormuz, suggesting that Iran sought to remove evidence of its involvement from the scene.

U.S. Central Command spokesman Bill Urban released the black-and-white footage and two still color photographs. The military says the video shows an IRGC Gashti Class patrol boat approaching the Kokuka Courageous “and was observed and recorded removing (an) unexploded limpet mine from the M/T Kokuka Courageous.”

In one way It does not matter if the tankers, Iranian Patrol boat, and the mines are all CGI... The seeds have been planted by the government for an impending action.. If General Wesley Clark is correct this plan has been on the war burner of someone in the governmental planning department for a long time.

I could care less if a surgical strike takes out the Iranian Mullahs as I do believe a certain large percentage of the Iranian People would celebrate. As far as wholesale slaughter of the Iranian people or our troops losing their lives (even one) I do not want to see or hear it..

My Ra Ra days of "let's go kick some butt" are long past but I am not against killing someone or thing that needs it. It is a shame as I think most people who are members of this site know that it is the Wahhabi Sunni Muslims who are the real terrorist of this world not the Shiites....evidently unless they have some Iranian Shiite Mullahs directing the show.

You see where I am coming from mate👍

Never forget Colin Powell and his famous tube of ANTHRAX...

So many innocents died and still die to this day because of lies and greed from just one country (with help from Israel IMO) who are on the other side of the planet in their “drone” armchair knowing damned well that they cannot be hit but couldn’t give a poo about all those countries that are not far from the Middle East...

Cowards and bastards...

CGI really?? you think the US IS DOING CGI ON A DRONE FILM and trying to sell it as real. Who exactly the military? at who's direction? Come on #1 THINK ABOUT IT, Trump goes to war right now he puts re-election in jeopardy, especially if he goes over such shoddy evidence. I'm thinking seriously its Mossad or the Saudi's if it is not Iran. Trump isn"t stupid enough to get caught up in this BS yet. It's obvious what it is, going to have to something way over the top and obviously Iranian to get him to react militarily, not to mention he'd be gun shy just knowing half the population wants him to fail, doubt he trusts hardly anybody at this time.

Forget oil prices even though they are an extra benefit.... How about billions of arms sales that were looking doubtful in a Senate vote until; you guessed it. www.zerohedge.com...


A brief report from AntiWar.com's Eric Garris suggests Thursday's tanker attack incident in the Gulf of Oman which the United States promptly blamed on Iran has directly impacted bills placed before the Senate which would ban US arms sales to Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Qatar.

Garris wrote of the vote which came hours after the Gulf tankers incident: "Both votes were considered highly likely to pass up until they were rushed to the floor today. The timing appears almost certainly to have been related to Thursday tanker bombings in the Gulf of Oman, and shifted a number of Senators’ votes in favor of continuing the arms sales." He noted that "some senators switched sides to kill the bills" following news of the tanker attacks.


www.theepochtimes.com...


The Japanese owner of the Kokuka Courageous, one of the vessels attacked near the strategic Strait of Hormuz in the Gulf of Oman on June 13, said their sailors saw “flying objects” immediately before the attacks.

The claim from Yutaka Katada, the President of Kokuka Sangyo, a company that owns and operates ships that transport liquid chemicals, contradicts the claims by the United States military that said the attacks resulted from an Iranian naval mine.

Katada told reporters on Friday that before the oil tanker caught fire the sailors witnessed “flying objects” and it was hit twice, reported the Associated Press (AP).

Katada said the flying objects could be bullets and refuted that the attack was caused by mines or torpedoes since the damage to the ship was above the waterline.



US Says Iran is Behind the Attack

The United States military released a video on Friday that showed how Iran’s Revolutionary Guard removed an unexploded limpet mine from one of the oil tankers targeted near the strategic Strait of Hormuz, suggesting Tehran wanted to hide evidence of its alleged involvement.
youtu.be...


Limpet mines are held in place magnetically and are supposed to disable a ship not necessarily sink it. Very civilized, no ?

I think every Tanker in that area should have Armed guards posted (with some serious firepower) and any suspicious boat that approaches the tanker is warned and then blown out of the water if they do not deviate their course..

I don't believe anything I hear and only half of what I see. That video isn't clear enough to see if it's Iranians.

After the lies we were fed leading up to Iraq 2.0. I don't trust this video footage one bit.

Who has more to gain from attacking oil tankers in the gulf? Israel or Iran. It's our soldiers that will be fighting the war and our children paying for it. Netanyahu flat out lied at the UN about Iraq's nuclear capabilities. With Bolton and Trump in the white house Israel knows they have Iran where they want them.

I'm not looking forward to paying $10 a gallon for gas while everything at the grocery store doubles in price.

Iran isn't worth the cost. If Israel wants something done about Iran let them do it.

Not unexpected; www.abc.net.au...


Oil tanker explosions prompt Saudi call for decisive action to secure Gulf of Oman energy supplies..
Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince has blamed Iran for attacks on two oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.
He is quoted in an interview with a Saudi-owned newspaper as saying the attack on the tankers, one of them Japanese, was an insult to Japan's Prime Minister, who was visiting Iran at the time.

The United States has also blamed Iran for the attacks but Tehran has denied any involvement.

In the interview, the Crown Prince also said the kingdom did not want a war in the region but would not hesitate to deal with any threat to its interests.

"The Iranian regime did not respect the Japanese Prime Minister's visit to Tehran and while he was there replied to his efforts by attacking two tankers, one of which was Japanese," the newspaper quoted Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman as saying.

Hezboallah, Hamas, IRNG, various other smaller groups, plus their constant threat to wipe Israel from the map.

No one is saying the west is whiter than white, but if you don't think Iran sponsors terrorist action then you are living in noddy land.

More and more it just looks posturing and bluster from both sides. Its all about Iran stockpiling enough enriched uranium, that's what is important to them, and it's what makes the Israelis nervous, pretty sure the Saudi's wouldn't like nuclear Iran either.
