  • Iran Becoming More Openly Aggressive in the Persian Gulf

    https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/b...ormuz-n1031866

    'A British oil tanker was seized in the Strait of Hormuz by Iranian forces on Friday while another was temporarily stopped and sent on its way, according to a U.S. official and the tankers' operators.'

    'Iran’s Revolutionary Guard claimed in a statement that it seized a British oil tanker named Stena Impero for “violating international regulations.”'

    '“After it was seized it was transferred to Iranian shores to undergo legal procedure,” the IRG said in a statement.'

    'The tanker arrived at the Bandar Abbas port on Iran's south coast early Saturday, according to the Iranian news agency FARS.'

    I wonder how much Iran's aggressive actions in the Persian Gulf are the result of Trump's revocation of the nuclear agreement and subsequent sanctions on Iran?
    We are not now that strength which in old days
    Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
    Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
    To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

    One of the points of getting out of the agreement was so that Iran couldn’t become richer and spread their influence in the region and its working Hamas and Hezbollah aren’t being well funded anymore since Iran has to prioritize their limited income on spending for domestic issues instead.

      Iran is conducting itself with much restraint in face of US aggression and actions of British prostitutes.

        They’ll get their asses kicked if they attempted any more serious military attack against the US and allies.

          Iran was agreeing and in compliance with the agreement and there were no aggressive actions in the Gulf until Trump unilaterally pulled out of the agreement.

          Unfortunately, we are now closer to military action in the Gulf than before the agreement was voided on the part of the US.

            A well funded Iran is not good for peace in the region ever since their 79 revolution uncontrolled hatred of Trump is affecting many Americans judgment on the situation.

              Trump negated the agreement because Obama got it done. He is virulently against anything that Obama did.

                Obama did a terrible job with foreign policy it’s no surprise coming from someone who apologizes constantly for his country he didn’t even try to keep a few troops in Iraq to prevent a group like ISIS from becoming strong.
                Should the US also keep supporting the Syrian rebels too despite that they’re much worse for the US and everyone else than the Assad regime?

                    Trump does not have a foreign policy and what passes for it is a national disaster.

                      What he’’s done so far in foreign policy for the US has been good unlike the last 3 Presidents.

                        That should read "Obama did not have a foreign policy and what passed for it was a national disaster."

                        That Trump's foreign policy choices rankle you into hair-on-fire fits of rage doesn't mean he does not have one, or that it's a disaster.

                          Iran has the means for a strong answer. There will be nothing like in Iraq.

                            They use Su-25’s to intercept aircraft as well as using other mostly 60’s and 70’s military equipment they don’t have a chance.
                            If the US ever does invade an insurgency it will only last for so long without any outside help.
