Two Saudi Oil Tankers Attacked in The Persian Gulf Amid Rising Iran Tensions

BY Liz Sly 1 hr ago

BEIRUT —Two Saudi oil tankers have been attacked and damaged in coastal waters near the Persian Gulf, the Saudi Foreign Ministry said on Monday, further heightening tensions with Iran.

The tankers were subjected to an “act of sabotage” early Sunday morning in waters off the coast of the United Arab Emirates, according to a statement by the Saudi Minister for Energy, Industry and Mineral Resources, Khalid Al-Falih carried by the official Saudi news agency.

Saudi Arabia did not say who was responsible for the attack, which caused no casualties or oil spill but inflicted “significant damage” on the vessels, the statement said.

It coincides with a surge of tensions between the United States and Iran, after the U.S. said last week it had received intelligence Iran was planning some kind of attack against U.S. forces in the Middle East.

1. And they can trace it to Iran How?

Believe me, I want to see Iran stomped into a mud hole too but it’s got to be an overt act

3. The Iranians Mined the Strait of Hormuz once



IRS Sahand F-74 (both pics)



The Iranian Navy ship was sunk in Operation Praying Mantis on 18 April 1988. Located by two American A-6E Intruders of Attack Squadron VA-95 steaming roughly 16 kilometres (10 mi) southwest of Larak Island, she was hit by two Harpoon missiles and four AGM-123 Skipper II laser-guided missiles. A pair of Rockeye cluster bombs from the aircraft and a single Harpoon from the destroyer USS Joseph Strauss finished off the ship. Left heavily aflame, dead in the water and listing to port, Sahand burned for several hours before fire reached her ammunition magazines and they detonated, sinking the ship in over 660 feet (200 metres) of water southwest of Larak Island, 45 members of her crew were killed

We could administer the practical test in Survival Swimming to the entire Iran Navy in a matter of hours.

They really aren’t up to the situation

As recently as December 2013, Obama said that if Iran’s nuclear program was peaceful as it claimed, it had no need for either.
“They don’t need to have an underground, fortified facility like Fordow in order to have a peaceful nuclear program,” he said. “They certainly don’t need a heavy-water reactor at Arak in order to have a peaceful nuclear program.”

Obama Is Dangerous for Peace
The Middle East has been "community disorganized." This is straight out of Saul Alinsky: community agitators destabilize communities so that they can push the remnants into whatever shape they want. The people who die are just too bad.

5. Don't care

I want to see their navy pay a visit to Davy Jones's Locker. We owe them big time for the hostage crisis.
