    Okay, I realise that this is a spoof but it's a sign of the surreal times we live in that I initially believed it before deciding to check

    UK to send third warship to Gulf amid Iran tensions

    The UK is to send another warship to the Persian Gulf amid ongoing tensions with Iran in the region.

    Frigate HMS Montrose is permanently stationed in the Gulf but will soon enter a Royal Navy base in Bahrain for around three or four weeks, in order to refuel and re-stock.

    Destroyer HMS Duncan is currently en route to the Gulf, with her arrival expected by the beginning of next week, in order to provide relief and avoid a gap in the UK's deployment in the region.

    But frigate HMS Kent, from mid-September, will now also travel to the region to increase the Royal Navy's presence in the Gulf to three ships.

    Iran seizes two British tankers and makes a huge mistake

    by Tom Rogan

    There will be furious embarrassment in the British government this evening over Iran's seizure of two British oil tankers today. One of those tankers is British-flagged, and the other is British-owned.

    Still, Iran has made a strategic miscalculation here.

    Acting against the British while the U.K. and Iranian foreign ministers were seeking compromise over Britain's recent seizure of an Iranian tanker, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps have further isolated Iran on the international stage. With a multinational naval task force for tanker escorts likely to be announced next week, the Iranians are increasingly outgunned and diplomatically isolated. Losing a drone to a U.S. warship on Thursday, the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps is also now aware of American red lines against threats to U.S. life.

    But none of that will distract from London's embarrassment.

    Britain was well aware that this kind of Iranian aggression was likely. Deploying an advanced warship to the Persian Gulf, the U.K. expected to deter Iran. That calculation has clearly failed in quite spectacular fashion. The military options to retake these tankers are also weak. While Britain's Special Boat Service special forces unit has an advanced maritime counter-terrorism capability, recovering tankers now in Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps port would be an extraordinary challenge.

    That said, Iran's action here presents two problems for Tehran.

    First, it will encourage Britain to support the U.S. sanctions pressure campaign against Iran. With a new British prime minister entering office next week, the U.K. will want to regain the initiative here against appearing weak. But Iran's action also makes it likelier that France and Germany will adopt a tougher stance against it. Those nations have pursued an appeasement strategy until now, but they will view Iran's escalated endangerment of global energy supplies as intolerable.

    Ultimately, then, Iran is heading for more economic damage. These seizures might make the hard-liners feel good, but they've made a big mistake.

    Attacks on ships, drones shot down, it's getting hot. Quoting myself from another thread merely two weeks ago

    That was fast. The level of escalation is fairly alarming, two more weeks and war will be on.

    The article is wrong, though. While France is always keen for going to randomly bomb other countries, just like the US, surprisingly Germany recently blocks one or another attempt to force us to "take our responsibility". Just remember the reaction towards the badly conceiled threat over the Northstream pipeline. They literally told the US to shut up and bugger off.

    The other end of the story is another pipeline from the middle east, which was supposed to be in concurrence to Northstream and again hurt mainly Germany's relation to Russia. And even our traitor govt appears to have enough of the meddling of our domestic affairs for Saudi oil monopoly profits. This not very widely known project (from which also Turkey would profit) was the main reason why we clinged to the Deal with Iran, because basically the govt (and EU) wanted that pipeline, too, imho on behalf of Saudi profits and the US's will. For us in addition to the Russian one. However, I dont think we're going to play the game any longer. It may work for the US, or even Britain or France, to rally behind a war, in Germany this would not work, and for sure not against Iran. This simply cant be sold to the people. And they would have to explain the thing with the other pipeline, why we should care about profits for Saudi, Turkey, Bahrain, UAE etc or what the US wants, when all it does it causing trouble and another war.

    Even our mainstream media starts dragging the US role in the creation of IS into the light now along with the Saudi connection. All the blah about Iran being the evil one falls on deaf ears, and while news about the tanker stuff first provides the view of Britain/US, it doesnt go completely unquestioned. Surprisingly, some people apparently found their backbones again and are probably willing to stand against another war for no reason. I hope so...
