IRGC commander Gen. Ramazan Zirahi said the vessel was intercepted near Iran’s Farsi Island, but did not reveal who owned the cargo or its destination.

    Good, Iran is seizing its own Smuggled Oil just as New Secret Nuke Facility that Iran Refuses for Inspection was Discovered? UAE & Arabia can Talk About Both with Iran.

    Get ready Iran. You have asked for it and you shall receive. Provoking the Lord’s wrath? OK.

    Jeremiah 49:37: For I will cause Elam to be dismayed before their enemies And before those who seek their life. I will bring disaster upon them, My fierce anger, says the LORD; And I will send the sword after them Until I have consumed them.

    This is most likely about smart oil smuggling itself.
    But the IRGC’s naval forces went in oversmarting mode and noticed the dupe, this time around.
    But, with just a little bit of vanilla essence added, could have easily disguised itself in ice cream.

    US Navy apparently unable (or unwilling) to really go toe-to-toe with Iran. Gulf states will make a deal with Iran, sooner or later. US Navy appears to be there for show, trying to look tough. Iran shot down a US drone. Iranians probably allowed the US to shoot down Iranian drone to make up for it. This isn’t even funny anymore.

    “Incredibly quiet”: Russian submarines scared the military of Britain

    The British military should be wary of the Russian unobtrusive submarines of Project 636 Varshavyanka, according to the media in the United Kingdom. These “quiet” submarines can monitor the movements of the British fleet and allegedly connect to submarine cables. Therefore, according to sources in the British Navy, it is necessary to increase spending on the fleet and underwater defense.

    Russian submarines of Project 636 Varshavyanka pose a potential threat to the Royal Navy of Great Britain. About this edition of The Daily Telegraph said sources in the British armed forces.

    And then there is the issue of the human blood smuggling by the Iranian mosquitoes.
    But the IRGC’s naval forces will put and end to it.
    This action does not require carrying heavy limpet mines, their frogmen go underwater armed only with small fine tweezers and grab the mosquitoes from the under.
