    This has become a cliche now I’m afraid. Hear it every year.

    I'm not saying it wasn't the Americans but it was clearly either a very carefully played attack or it was one of a very unsophisticated nature, eg by Iran.

    A ship full of diesel and oil wouldn't normally survive an attack from a US armed torpedo...

    Funny how, even before all the details are in, there's mention about the rise in oil prices. I don't point the finger at Iran. I point the finger at those money grabbing petrol stations lining Halifax Road!!

    Anyone been following this?

    A week or so ago a Norwegian tanker said it suspected a torpedo or mine attack after 3 explosions hit their ship.

    Another explosion on a Japanese tanker yesterday and now the US have released a video of an apparent Iranian vessel removing an un-exploded mine on the side of the same Japanese tanker.

    Seems they have been caught red handed based on the video.
