    So it is not Iran who are responsible, who do you think did it?

    It may well be Iran but this is a country that is being painted into a corner by Mr Fart who is spoiling for a fight.

    Yes he is certainly no diplomat and a thoroughly distasteful human being.

    However the Iranians can not be allowed to act in the way they are, will it be a cruise ship next?

    Obviously Corbyn will imply the US did it, he did the exact same thing when he implied that the US and UK had staged a chemical weapons attack in Syria (despite the fact that Assad and Russia had done it before well over 50 times).

    Iran is also staging attacks against Saudi Arabia and Israel, they aren't as fluffy and peaceful as he may think and obviously he won't say a word about it.

    Iran were the first bring it to light in the first incident 3 weeks ago.

    Only the gulf states know what is happening and tbf between iran and the saudis, I wouldn't trust either versions they give.

    Trump is a lying cunt so he us even less believaboe than them two.

    As per though the UK meekly follows suit in backing the US.

    Wouldn't put it past Israel?? They'd love to destroy Iran period
     
  9. Don’t think it’s about terrorising people, they need money so sinking a few tankers pushes the cost of an oil barrel up with the panic. Thank god or Allah that the UAE have oil just in time for the transfer window. Txiki, Feran and Khaldoon can you make sure you change your outlook box passwords please?

    Tell me, what does Iran gain from attacking those tankers?
