Iran releases second seized British tanker, keeps first
The second British-operated oil tanker, the Mesdar, seized by Revolutionary Guards forces in the Strait of Hormuz on Friday was allowed to leave a few hours later, but the British-flagged Stena Imperio, was kept back. UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt spoke of “serious consequences” if Iran does not release this tanker with its 23-member crew. “We are not looking at military options,” he stressed. “We are looking at a diplomatic way to resolve this situation, but we are very clear that it must be resolved.”

It’s time for the people who receive that oil to protect the shipments. Or just STHU when Iran takes the tanker and the oil.
Bomb the basdards.
Moab on their atomic facilities will provide them with nice nuclear waste distributed around their country.
not such a great idea. fordo is under a mountain, and there are probably a few “undeclared” facilities, just as fordo was built secretly. wars can be messy and unpredictable. much cleaner and more effective to help iran transition to a democratic government.
Tonight’s news just out yet ??Iran flag hoisted over seized British oil tanker as Revolutionary Guard taunts Royal Navy in Gulf showdown. what a real slap in the face to the UK Government.

It might take the military option to protect them from capture and release of what they have captured already.
They should impose heavy sanctions ASAP….oh wait, that is how this started…
and the sanctions seem to have worked quite well.
“We are not looking at military options,” he stressed. “We are looking at a diplomatic way to resolve this situation, but we are very clear that it must be resolved.”
Translation: “We beg Islam to be merciful on this matter where we have grieved the Iranian spirit and humbly ask for obedience.”
So much for the Royal Navy’s reputation.
and what do you expect him to say? that the royal marines are moving into position and the operation will begin at 04:00? why not send out gilt-edged invitations?

Just like they did with Germany, once again they will be begging America for help.
Test Moab on their nuclear sites.
Be sure to bomb the research reactor
right, keep them talking until the forces are ready.
