Iran is Threatening Retaliation for Tanker being seized
Irritating Iran is now in the market of revenge for one of its ships being seized. Iran is not supposed to be shipping oil to the world. But somehow many ships have been defying sanctions and helping the terrorist nation with financial support. Iran is angry because one of their tankers was seized by a British ship and remains in their custody today.
Iran has stated that “If Britain does not release the Iranian oil tanker it is the authorities’ duty to seize a British oil tanker.” Iran is a terrorist group that is involved in illegal activity and is a threat to those around them. This kind of behavior is seen in the Democratic party as they place terror in the life of a little girl and threaten to kill her family. They have illegally taken away her right to freedom of speech and bullied her as a terrorist does with fear.
President Trump has warned Iran to be careful in how they act as he stated “We’ll see what happens with Iran. Iran has to be very, very, careful.” Iran may state that they do not want to be at war, but they sure are pressing the matter with the world. They are doing things that are illegal and highly dangerous to those around them.
The British Royal Marines caught the ship and boarded it with suspicions that it was breaking sanctions by selling oil to Syria. Britain landed their troops on the tanker by helicopter at night and took control of it. This move by Britain puts them in a difficult position. The United States called off an air strike weeks ago, but this action pulls America back into the mix again. Up until now, many countries have been neutral in their dealings with Iran.
Iran’s protest just shows the world that they own the tanker and that they have been and continue to defy sanctions against them. The world must know and see that Iran is a terror to those around them and will stop at nothing to be the means to drive that terror into the lives of innocent people. Evidence suggests that the tanker was loaded with oil at an Iranian port which is illegal by international law under the sanctions.
The sanctions have been put on Iran by the United States in an attempt to get them to grow up. Iran continues to lie and do things that are fueling a nuclear program. This has been a point of concern for many nations. Terrorists with nuclear weapons pose a threat to the security of many. President Trump has seen right through their actions and puts them in timeout because of their actions.
Iran is also making threats that they now have more uranium than they are allowed to have and will start making it into weapons-grade soon. This is nothing more than a defiant child crying for attention on the world stage. Iran wants so badly to be a world contender that they are willing to hurt themselves to see that it happens. The shop that was seized had a mix of nationalities on board.
Europe has its own set of rules that says Iran is not allowed to sell its oil. This is in addition to the sanctions placed on Iran by the United States. Many experts believe that this size of the tanker was avoiding the normal route through the Suez Canal because it would have been discovered. This action by Britain should serve as a warning that even though many European countries are neutral that they will take action if Iran goes nuclear again.
The Iranian terrorist government has no respect or care for the rest of the world. They are only interested in money and power, and they are willing to do whatever they need to do to acquire it. President Trump has done the right thing in imposing the sanctions. When the time comes America’s honest president will honor the alliance between Britain and the United States and back Britain if military action is needed.
