ESCALATION Iran’s Expediency Council Secretary Calls for Seizing British Tanker

Secretary of the Expediency Council says Iran should seize a British oil tanker if London doesn’t release the Iranian tanker which was seized by its forces.

“The Islamic Revolution has never been an initiator of tension during its 40-year-old history, however, it has not hesitated to respond to bullies and thugs,” Mohsen Rezaee tweeted on Friday.

 “If Britain doesn’t return the Iranian tanker, the duty of responsible [Iranian] bodies is to seize a British oil tanker in a retaliatory measure,” he continued.

Indications are that the US was behind the seizure.

Spain's acting foreign minister, Josep Borrell, said the United States had asked the UK to intercept the ship.

War hawk John Bolton, who is national security adviser to President Trump, via tweet cheered the tension raiser.

  1. There has never been a war that Bolton didn't support, unless it was one he may have actually had to fight in.

    1. Indeed. But it's also telling that no one in the mainstream media asks Bolton what initial act of aggression Iran committed against the US or UK which justifies seizing oil produced in Iran. Disobeying a diktat from the US government is not an act of aggression.
