    Hormuz Crisis: Tanker Owner Disputes US Narrative, Says Crew Saw "Flying Objects" Before Attack



    (ZH) — For a moment on Thursday, it appeared that the US Navy had produced the ‘smoking gun’ to which Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had alluded during his statement from earlier in the day: CENTCOM footage which the Navy said purported to show Iran’s IRGC ‘caught in the act’ of trying to remove an unexploded mine from the Kokuka Courageous, one of the two tankers damaged in Thursday’s attacks.

    CENTCOM said the video it released showed the IRGC removing an unexploded limpet mine from the side of one of the tankers, suggesting Tehran had sought to remove evidence from the scene.

    After the video’s release, Iran continued to deny any involvement in the attacks. And perhaps now we know why.

    n comments that cast the entire narrative promulgated by the US in doubt, Yutaka Katada, the president of Kokuka Sangyo, the owner and operator of the Kokuka Courageous, said Friday that he doesn’t completely believe Washington’s version of events.

    Instead, he said the vessel wasn’t damaged by a mine, but by some kind of projectile, like, say, a torpedo. He called reports of a mine attack “false.” One reason is because a mine doesn’t damage a ship above sea level, like what was seen with the Courageous.

    “A mine doesn’t damage a ship above sea level,” said Yutaka Katada, president of Kokuka Sangyo, the owner and operator of the vessel. “We aren’t sure exactly what hit, but it was something flying towards the ship,” he said.

    Another is because of a suspicious sighting by some of the crew, according to Bloomberg.

    According to the CEO, sailors on board the Courageous saw “flying objects” just before the ship was hit, suggesting the vessel wasn’t damaged by mines, but by objects that could have been fired from a distance.

    Katada’s comments contradict Washington’s allegations of a mine attack, though the CEO did mention that his crew had spotted an Iranian Navy ship nearby around the time of the attack, though he didn’t say whether it was before or after.

    The Courageous was carrying 225,000 tons of methanol from Saudi Arabia to Asia and was flying a Panama flag at the time of the attack. Analysts immediately noted the poor timing for Tehran: The attack occurred just as senior Iranian leaders were meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

    The Courageous suffered two explosions, forcing the crew to evacuate. Fortunately for the company, the ship is unlikely to sink or even lose fuel or goods stored onboard – but it will need to be repaired, Katada said. The US said the ship’s 21-member crew was rescued by a Dutch tug boat and was later taken aboard the USS Bainbridge.

    Per CBS News, the US may have wanted to show Iran deploying mines because Iran previously used mines against oil tankers in 1987 and 1988 in the “Tanker War,” when the US Navy escorted ships through the region.

    In other news, the US Military said the Navy Destroyer USS Mason is en route to the area in the Sea of Oman where the two tankers were attacked. The military added that it has no interest in engaging in new conflict in the Middle East and that it is ready to defend US interests as well as freedom of navigation.

    Iran categorically rejected the US unfounded claim regarding tanker attacks, according to Iran’s foreign minister and its mission to the United Nations.

    Markets appeared to shrug off the news, but the uncertainty will likely create problems for the US as it tries to justify more strict sanctions, or a beefed up military presence to “escort” tankers. However, this didn’t stop President Trump on Friday from once again placing the blame squarely on Iran.

    We imagine the US will continue pushing this line, unless more substantial evidence supporting Katada’s claims emerges.

    Zionist meltdown as Oman tanker stunt fails to manipulate oil futures markets


    The meltdown of the Zionist control grid is now public, as even the corporate mainstream propaganda media is reporting the attacks last week on tankers near Oman as “false flag.” The situation has reached the point that former U.S. colonies like Germany and Japan are openly and publicly defying the U.S. President and Secretary of State on this issue. This surreal turn of events is comparable to the fall of Communism and the Soviet Union.



    In this case, we are witnessing the fall of the U.S. corporate government and (possibly) the rebirth of the Republic of the United States of America. In fact, we may even be witnessing the fall from power of the secret family groupings hiding behind monotheism.


    The 13 bloodlines who have controlled monotheism are, in fact, negotiating a new system for running the planet, according to European royals and members of the White Dragon Society (WDS). If these negotiations succeed, it will be the biggest event in thousands of years of human history. If they fail, there will be chaos and bloodshed, especially among the elite, anti-bloodline Gnostic Illuminati, sources say.


    Even if this sounds exaggerated, events in the actual real world do show a fundamental change. Let’s start with the failure of the false flag attack of the coast of Oman. U.S. naval intelligence and CIA sources followed the money to see who benefits from this attack. The trail led to the Rothschild-owned Glencore commodities company in Switzerland, which had positioned itself to profit from a spike in oil futures prices immediately before this attack took place, the sources say. Unfortunately, the oil futures price spike turned out to be merely a dead cat bounce and the Rothschilds failed to profit as expected. That’s because the markets, and the world, have had enough of the Zionists crying Iranian wolf, they say.


    What’s interesting about this latest provocation is how even a former U.S. colony like Japan is no longer going along with the Zionist playbook. To quote from corporate news reports, “Even if it’s the United States that makes the assertion, we cannot simply say we believe it,” said a source close to Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. If having expertise sophisticated enough to conduct the attack could be a reason to conclude that the attacker was Iran, “That would apply to the United States and Israel as well,” said a source at the Foreign Ministry.

    https://japantoday.com/category/nati...tacked-tankers


    As far back as I can remember, this sort of public Japanese rebuke of a sitting U.S. administration has never happened even once since Japan lost World War II.


    The attack in Oman came as Abe was in Iran trying to get Iranian agreement for a new financial system, Japanese military intelligence sources say. The Iranians were supportive, but …

    U.S. Wants Allies to Help Keep Oil Lanes Open



    Trump administration officials say America is less reliant on Persian Gulf shipments

    WSJ.com

    Top Trump administration officials signaled the U.S. didn’t intend to assume sole responsibility for safeguarding tankers in the Persian Gulf after attacks Washington blames on Iran, because America has become less dependent on oil supplies from the region.

    Air Force Gen. Paul Selva, the vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, on Tuesday said the Trump administration wasn’t planning to replicate the mission the Reagan administration undertook in the 1980s, when the U.S. protected Kuwaiti oil tankers from Iranian attack and arranged for those vessels to sail under the American flag.

    “If we take this on as a U.S.-only responsibility, nations that benefit from that movement of oil through the Strait of Hormuz and the Persian Gulf are bearing little or no responsibility for the actual economic benefit that they gain,” he said.

    The bulk of Persian Gulf oil goes to several countries in Asia, he said. “And none of those countries have actually shown any real predilection to press the Iranians to stop what they are doing.”

    Gen. Selva’s comments paralleled similar statements on Tuesday by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and were in line with the Trump administration’s insistence that allies and partners share the costs and burdens of international military missions.

    Mr. Pompeo named China, Indonesia, Japan and South Korea as countries that depend heavily on oil supplies moving through the Strait of Hormuz and need to step up to protect their own interests.

    Like Gen. Selva, Mr. Pompeo didn’t spell out what diplomatic or military steps the U.S. and its foreign partners might take collectively to ensure that oil supplies from the Persian Gulf aren’t interrupted.

    “The United States is prepared to do its part, but every nation that has a deep interest in protecting that shipping lane so that energy can move around the world and support their economies needs to make sure they understand the real threat,” Mr. Pompeo said during his visit to the U.S. Central Command and Special Operations Command at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Fla.

    This week, President Trump told Time magazine that Persian Gulf oil shipments were less significant to the U.S. than in past decades because the Washington got very little of its oil from that region. Mr. Trump described the recent attacks against tankers owned by the Japanese and Norwegians as very minor and left unclear if American military force would be used to protect international oil shipments.

    Gen. Selva said any action to protect oil shipments would require an international consensus, unless U.S. citizens or forces were attacked.

    The Pentagon on Monday said it was sending an additional 1,000 troops to the Middle East in response to potential threats by Iranian forces and their proxies in the region.

    Gen. Selva said the U.S. had sent messages to the Iranian regime through Switzerland, which represents the U.S. in Tehran, and through the Iraqi government that an attack on U.S. forces or American interests would prompt a firm response.

    With its alleged attacks against the tankers, the Iranians have been “lashing out against the international community,” Gen. Selva said, but “haven’t touched an American asset in any overt attack that we can link directly to them.”

    ‘They tried hard, but failed’: Iran foiled all US attempts to carry out cyber-attacks



    Iran successfully prevented US cyber-attacks that targeted its infrastructure, the country’s information minister said after Washington was reported to have crippled Tehran’s missile control sites with a retaliatory cyber-strike.

    Minister for Information and Communication Technology Mohammad Javad Azari-Jahromi appeared to deny reports in the US media that a massive cyber-offensive had disabled Iranian computer systems that control rocket and missile launches on Thursday

    Neither the Pentagon nor the White House commented on the reports, which claimed that the strike had been carried out by US Cyber Command in cooperation with US Central Command to avenge the downing of an unmanned US Navy drone by Iran on Thursday morning.


    Stopping short of directly addressing rumors that the attack had taken place, Jahromi said that Iran has vast experience of thwarting these kind of assaults, having foiled some “33 million attacks with the [national] firewall, only within the last year.”


    He specifically referred to Stuxnet, a computer worm jointly developed by the US and Israel, which was used to infiltrate Iran’s nuclear facility networks in 2009-2010.



    They try hard, but have not carried out a successful attack


    The Washington Post reported earlier that the alleged cyber-strike had incapacitated Iran’s military command posts and control systems.

    The Trump administration has been pursuing a hawkish cyber-strategy. Signed by Trump last September, the document rolled up many of the constraints that limited the usage of offensive cyber-operations in retaliation against foreign actors.

    Unveiling the strategy, Trump’s national security adviser, John Bolton, who has been rallying behind a military option in Iran, announced that Washington’s “hands are not tied” anymore.


    Meanwhile, Iran has exercised caution, warning that the US military should carefully assess the risks before going to war with Tehran. A senior Iranian general warned that if a conflict breaks out, “no country would be able to manage its scope and timing.”





    Seems they expected to disable Iran's missiles but failed. This is why strike the strike was called off.
