Blatant RUBBISH is what it is.
Iran has EVERYRYTING to lose.
Iranian coastguard and rescue also helped rescue the 44 sailors stranded.
The Japanese PM is also in Iran right now, allegedly also aiming to mediate talks between the US and Iran.
I cannot understand how Iran can just simply be "blamed" without sufficient evidence.
We cannot just have wild accusations bandied about.
The UK and other nations, including Japan, are still investigating and reviewing the facts.
Pompeo has jumped the gun and I do not know who the hell briefed him but they did a mighty bad job!
