"A bill has been provided by the lawmakers which requires the government to receive expenses for providing security to vessels, either military or non-military, in the Strait of Hormuz from them," Hossein Ali Haji Deligani, a senior legislator, told FNA on Tuesday.

He added that the Iranian MPs have also devised other bills, including receiving compensation from the US for attacking an Iranian passenger plane in 1988 with 290 people on board, adopting necessary measures against the countries which host the US military men and facilities, adopting necessary measures against the companies which have accompanied the US sanctions against Iran, supporting the Iranian people and institutes which have been harmed by the US sanctions and forming a club of countries which have been sanctioned by the US.

Bold move Iran... Especially the part about other bills being entered to demand accountability for the 1988 Iran Air Disaster...

How exactly will they collect toll? Charges via paypal? Stopping ships?

That's a nice tanker you have there. Be a shame if something happened to it.

This is funny.
Yesterday, in another thread, a poster blamed the US for running a protection racket in the Strait of Hormuz.

Taking a page from al Capones book?

Pay your protection money or you'll need protection.

They're responding to moves by the US and its "allies" , there isn't much they can do but you expect them to just sit back and do nothing while the US destroy their economy ?

The direction of travel is almost as obvious as those forcing it.

If I was more conspiracy minded I'd say that this is a scam to scare people and keep oil prices high.

Expect more warships in the area and maybe a false flag attack.

I think that's called extortion.

President Trump will veto these Iranian bills.

Ah! Eureka! I believe we have a winner!

False flag? Not quite, it's extortion by Iran!

Now this makes total sense to me. It's just like the Barbary pirates and a classic move by an aggressive Islamic country.

LOL that confirms they were responsible for the attacks LOL.

Sounds like threats but its really negotiating, sanctions are starting to bite. Question is this enough to start a regime change within.

So then Iran will pay the Americans 220 million for the drone they shot down, only fair right? Plus expenses...

I think the drone was more in the neighborhood of 130~, but either way I imagine the sanctions will cost them more than that.

I don't think Iran will get many customers for its "security business" while Uncle Sam and his Navy in the area.
