Whoever is responsible for the attacks on the oil tankers in the Strait of Hormuz, I’m deeply suspicious of America’s motives and their so called evidence.
This ratcheting up of tension has occurred because Trump is a moron who doesn’t understand that the previous deal on nuclear energy in return for a lift in sanctions was the best deal the West could hope for and that by throwing it aside he has created the possibility for all out war.
America’s so called evidence could be credible if we hadn’t been conned by them in the past with weapons of mass destruction that didn’t exist. This evidence is in direct contradiction with the actual crew of the Japanese tanker who say they were struck by something flying, and the similarity to the Gulf of Tonkin incident when the US faked an attack by the North Vietnamese to start war still hangs over American actions.
This image doesn’t prove anything…
…it’s someone doing something.
Hardly the level of certainty that would call for war, yet that’s exactly what Trump risks by increasing the number of soldiers in the region to 10 000 with a carrier strike group.
Is Trump smart enough to avoid war?
