Japan demands more proof from U.S. that Iran attacked tankers



Japan Today.com June 16

The Japanese government has been requesting the United States for concrete evidence to back its assertion that Iran is to blame for the attacks on two tankers near the Strait of Hormuz on Thursday, government sources said Sunday.

The request came after U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a statement hours after the attacks blaming Iran but without offering proof. The Department of Defense later released a video allegedly showing an Iranian patrol boat removing an unexploded mine attached to the side of the Japanese-operated tanker Kokuka Courageous.

But Japanese government officials remain unconvinced, the sources said. "The U.S. explanation has not helped us go beyond speculation," said one senior government official.

Japan has been seeking more concrete evidence through various channels, including Foreign Minister Taro Kono who is likely to have made the request during a call with his counterpart on Friday, the sources said.

Pompeo said in a press conference Thursday that the United States' assessment was based on their "intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation, recent similar Iranian attacks on shipping, and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication."... https://japantoday.com/category/national/japan-demands-more-u.s.-proof-that-iran-attacked-tankers

It would be one thing if the corrupt District of Criminals and Draft Dodgers never told a lie...

1. Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld should weigh in.

Then I'm sure everybody would realize Donald Trump and John Bolton are doing everything they can to avoid war with Iran.

4. Given the seriousness and the consequences, this soldier would like to see more as well

There clearly were exterior explosions. Looks like someone removed a limpet style mine from one of the ships. Beyond that, there are chemical testing and other residuals that can be used to determine which kind of explosive device was used.

I expect what is found will be inconclusive, at least to some, though such mischief making tends to make me looks at the mullahs more than the US.

6. Even the owner of the tanker is calling bullshit and doesn't sound concerned about Iran over this.

But Trump and company?
