The ((((INTERNATIONAL CONSPIRACY!!!)))) strikes again, trying to drag us into war again with our bestest buds EVAR, our staunchest and most reliable allies against ((((THE TRIBE!!!)))), the Iranian “Death To America” Mad Mullahs.
The United States has blamed Iran for an attack on two tankers in the Gulf of Oman, releasing video footage that it claims shows an Iranian patrol boat removing an unexploded mine from one of the vessels’ hulls.
I’ve seen speculation in certain Mouthbreathing Right comment sections that, since the limpets removed from the tanker’s hill were above the water line, this simply HAS TO BE a “false flag” op to lure the US into war with Iran, probably instigated by ((((DEM WARMONGERIN’ JOOOOOZ!!!)))). Remember this material; you will see it again on the test later.
The Kokura Courageous and Front Altair tankers were attacked in international waters Thursday, prompting the evacuation of both vessels and raising fears of further confrontation in one of the world’s most strategic shipping lanes at a time of high tensions between the US and Iran.
The explosions, which sparked a fire on at least one of the two ships, are still under investigation. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo blamed Iran for the incident, citing intelligence assessments, the weapons used, the level of expertise required and the similarity to other recent attacks.
Another of US official told CNN that multiple Iranian small boats have entered the area where the USS Bainbridge continues to be on the scene, prompting US Central Command to issue a statement saying, “No interference with USS Bainbridge, or its mission, will be tolerated.”
However, a US official familiar with the current situation told CNN on Friday that Iranian small boats are preventing tugboats from towing away the Front Altair tanker — by being placed between the tugs and the disabled tanker.
It was actually a ((((JOOOOO!)))) boat, from Israel, no doubt.
Who could fail to see it, to question the comprehensive veracity of the ((((JOOOO!!!)))) conspiracy being behind this? I mean, really, people: when has Iran EVER declared sovereignty and control over the Hormuz straits, mined the Straits or the Persian Gulf, or threatened to block/close them?
Why, Iran has never taken a belligerent stance against the US; has no interest at all in higher oil prices and would never contemplate taking action to bring about such an increase; and is by no means involved in any so-called “Muslim terrorism” against the West—which is itself no more than a “false flag” ((((JOOOOO!!!)))) plot to turn us against our natural Mideast allies in favor of ((((YOU KNOW WHERE!!!)))).
WAKE UP, AMERICA!!
Oh, and as if all my above smart-assery weren’t enough to firmly establish the self-beclowning paranoia of the Mouthbreathing Right for you more reasonable types, there’s also this: those “UNPOSSIBLE!” above-the-waterline mine emplacements are actually pretty much the standard MO when sowing them from a patrol boat instead of having your SpecWar divers, if any, do it from underwater. But let’s not bother ourselves with facts, evidence, or the historical record here. For the ((((JOOOOO!!!)))-hatin’ Right, there’s never any need to look further than the nearest hook-nosed, greedy, world-dominating ((((TRIBE!!!)))) member for all your blame-assigning needs.
Disclaimer: I can’t see any scenario wherein I would support American boots on the ground in Iran. Nor do I wish to get involved yet again in a bootless, ennui-inducing rehash of ((((THE JOOO QUESTION!!!)))) argument here. At the same time, though, anybody who can’t (or won’t) comprehend that Iran’s Islamic-supremacist regime has been a dedicated, dangerous enemy since 1979 is a knucklehead. And any Righty who’s presently pretzeling himself into sloppy, doughy knots to find some way, any way, to manufacture some sort of Jewish conspiracy behind what is so obviously just the latest in a long, long line of Iranian provocations and/or acts of war is a damned fool.
Update! Almost forgot to include the hilariously baffling quote that closes the CNN article:
On Friday, a UK intelligence source told CNN that Britain had “no doubts” over the validity of the video released by the US Central Command. When asked about the remarks from Pompeo blaming Iran for the attack, Maja Kocijančič, a spokeswoman for the European Union, said Friday that the EU was still “gathering more information.”
“We have said repeatedly that the region doesn’t need further de-escalation it does need destabilization does need further tension and therefore we call for maximum restraint and to avoid provocations,” Kocijančič said.
Um. Well, okay, then. That certainly clears things right up all to hell and gone, don’t it?
