Stena Impero

Topping off a busy week in the Straights of Hormuz. First, three Iranian gunboats failed in an attempt to seize a British oil tanker on Wednesday. HMS Montrose was escorting the vessel and pointed its weapons on the IRGC gunboats. The next day an Iranian drone was downed by the amphibious assault ship USS Boxer, by electronic jamming. Now this.

Iran has seized a British-flagged oil tanker Friday in the Strait of Hormuz amid growing tensions in the region.

The Stena Impero, which has a crew of 23 on board, “was approached by unidentified small crafts and a helicopter during transit of the Strait of Hormuz while the vessel was in international waters,” Stena Bulk, the shipping company that owns the vessel, said in a statement. “We are presently unable to contact the vessel which is now heading north towards Iran.”

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard forces, in a statement on their website, say the ship was seized for “non-compliance with international maritime laws and regulations” and is being brought to an unnamed Iranian port, according to the Associated Press.

Websites tracking the ship’s path show it turning sharply in the direction of Iran’s Qeshm Island, instead of its intended destination of Saudi Arabia.

Apparently Iran has forgotten Operation Praying Mantis, and is in need of a refresher. Read the entire article here: Fox News

Now they’re claiming they are diverting a second tanker.

Shit’s really REALLY about to go down now.

The key is, the response has to be -grindingly- humiliating to the leadership, inconceivable, and something that cannot match.

What -should- have happened, is a tanker “Q-ship” sinking a crap-ton of their assets, on livestream.

Then maybe launching an over-the horizon salvo of harpoons and/or tomahawks at their nearest Navy base.

Warships and air assets then sprint in to catch any others that come out to play.

Wait and watch what kind and how many of our ships suddenly make for the Straights of Hormuz. Same for air assets landing in Saudi Arabia.

If Vlad Putin has anything to do with it, at all – he’s been shipping equipment to them recently – he may be meddling to get higher prices for Gazprom’s oil and gas.

This nonsense can put a bouncy house on crude futures.

I think your Q-ship idea is probably what they’ll do. That and having destroyers nearby are what they did to combat the Somali pirates.

Though I’d rather see some massive strikes. Some cruise missiles and let the muzzle and leash off Israel and Iran won’t be a problem for long.

Sadly, zer0 has them convinced they can win via their blackmail antics. They will be unlikely to back off short of a major strike. They won’t even admit to the drone, and will go after tankers of UK and others, thinking “-this- will cow them!”.

Trump’s humanity of not killing a hundred ADA folks over a drone may now result in a wider fracas. They will likely convince themselves that is is weakness, not playing US media games.

Both sides evaluate the other as weak and nuts. That rarely ends well.

Mantis 2.0, at least.
