    Iran has seized a second tanker, US official says

    From CNN's Barbara Starr

    Iran has also seized a second tanker, the Liberian-flagged MV Mesdar, according to a US official. Two more US officials tell CNN that, according to maritime intelligence reports, the indication is the Mesdar has been seized.

    Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps announced earlier that its navy has captured a British-flagged tanker ‘Stena Impero’ in the Strait of Hormuz.

    The order of seizure of the two ships isn’t clear at this time.

    Well, what's being done about it? Nothing.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    The Brits will go in and rescue who needs rescuing. They always do. There will be no negotiation.

    What is it called when a ship is seized in international waters by hostile ships? It's on the tip of my tongue. What is the word for that? Oh yeah, I remember now. It's called.....

    PIRACY!!!! And an act of war as well.

    Of course, instead of dealing with it as should be done, the EU will do nothing more than sending a strongly worded letter that the Iranians will just laugh at.

    The U.S. is poised to send hundreds of U.S. troops to Saudi Arabia, according to new media reports.

    CNN reports two U.S. defense officials said 500 troops will deploy to Prince Sultan Air Base, which the U.S. has eyed as a spot for increased presence because intelligence indicates the desert region would be difficult for Iranian missiles to strike.

    I don't think the Iranians would be striking too much of anything unless they do it like they fought Iraq for 8 years by canoe thru the swamps. Iraq gassed the hell out of them and no one complained back then. Joking aside I don't think they will have an air force after about two hours of tomahawks doing some rearranging, same with their Navy of canoes. They have silkworm anti ship missiles on shore but you know those would be eliminated in one unseen unheard strike. This is what they need, to be completely de fanged so the real Iranians can retake control of their own country. These muslim bastards are just thugs who made them prisoners in their own country.
