Iran Tried to Seize a British Tanker in the Strait of Hormuz


Five boats believed to belong to Iranian Revolutionary Guards approached a British oil tanker in the Gulf on Wednesday and asked it to stop in Iranian waters close by, but withdrew after a British warship warned them over radio, a U.S. defense official said, Reuters reported.

“The UK’s Royal Navy frigate HMS Montros had been escorting the tanker,” the Jerusalem Post reports. “When given orders by the Iranian ships, the Navy frigate pointed its guns on the Iranians and warned them to back away. The Iranian ships backed away in response to the verbal warning.”

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, the one Democrats say is a ‘moderate’, warned Britain earlier in the day for previously seizing an Iranian tanker.

“The British unjustifiably seized the tanker in territorial waters of Spain where they occupy, as well as Gibraltar,” he said, according to Rouhani’s press office.

“We must all work hard to ensure full security in shipping lines throughout the world, and I tell the British that they are the initiator of insecurity and you will understand its consequences later.”

  • I would bet money, a lot of money, the democrats are encouraging Iran to start a conflict…why? because it could make President Trump look bad…Democrats are pure evil, they don t mind starting a war if it can help them win in 2020…they don t care how many innocent people get killed as long as they can have their accomplice – the main stream media – twist every story to make it look as if Trump is why women and children are dying in Iran

    I am totally convinced the democrats are behind this

    • Hello friend from north of the border…
      I am in total agreement with you.
      Notice how Democrats like former Sec State John K. continues to dialogue snd visit with Iran.
      Notice how Republicans never act this way…
      Total evil is right what l think.
      The Demonrat Party is the DOMESTIC ENEMY our Constitution warns us about whenever an American takes its oath.
      The Demonrats have already publicly disavowed our Constitution in 1860 and only Demonrats ever talk about changing, amending or doung away with Amendments of the Constitution.
      The Declaration and Constitution are precious to ALL AMERICANS and should be viewed as a gift to the world and both documents are as close to American Scripture as can be.
      Bless the freedom loving peoples of North America…l say !!
