Iranian Guards officer threatens seizure of British oil tanker

Senior Iranian Revolutionary Guards commander Mohsen Rezai said Friday on Twitter that it was Tehran’s “duty” to seize a British oil tanker if the Grace 1 vessel impounded in Gibraltar on suspicion of carrying Iranian crude to Syria is not released at once. A British marine detachment and the Gibraltar police seized the vessel, maintaining it was in breach of EU sanctions against the Assad regime. A senior Iranian foreign ministry official called the UK move “unacceptable” in a meeting with the British ambassador, who was summoned to hear a formal protest.

    Iran won’t dare openly attack and seize a British bound tanker. But do expect retaliation in the form of limpet mines in the coming weeks.

    ISISiran might actually do it, but the question is, if they do , will the led coalition retaliate or will they stand there and wag their tails as they usually do?

    At once is a little precipitated, you know?

    Commander Mohsen Rezai must first come in person with an official At-Once-Release Request at the United Nations headquarters. The address is: 760 United Nations Plaza, Manhattan.

    Alternatively, he could register his request at this address: Paola Point Road, FPO, AE, Cuba 09593 Tel: 757-458-4092 which is situated at the southeastern end of Cuba right near the Guantanamo Bay detention camp.
