Easy lesson any Iranian vessel from a rowing boat upwards that steps out of Iranian waters and threatens any other vessel should be blown out of the water ! Can't reason with a mad dog, you stop it !Trump probably paid someone ,just to get Britain involved ? .... what lesson is that which the Iranians need "to learn" Steve , is it the same one that the Saudis and the Americans need to learn. ?
Well it didn't take long for a Leftie with Trump Derangement Syndrome to blame Trump for this. I would have thought that it would have taken more than just a few hours. Just who would Trump have paid? The Iranians? I don't think so! Maybe if Britain still had a Royal Navy with real ships it could have protected its own Merchant Fleet ... or could it be that the UK was relying on the US Navy presence in the Gulf to do the job for them?Trump probably paid someone ,just to get Britain involved ? .... what lesson is that which the Iranians need "to learn" Steve , is it the same one that the Saudis and the Americans need to learn. ?
Does it matter what nationality the crew is ? Piracy is Piracy ! I am sure if Iran wants a fight, they have far fewer ships than the forces that will respond to their attacks on innocent vessels ! and they will loose !What nationality are the crew of the Stena Impero… does anyone know??
I agree. There are navy ships "out of the gazoo" up there but how many are Royal Navy ships? One! Count them. One! But God forbid that would be the reason why two British-flagged tankers were hi-jiacked. It's much easier to blame Trump for paying someone off.There's navy ships out of the gazoo up there. Why wasn't one of them actually in the straits which are the most vulnerable ? Went through there a lot of times on break bulk ( KSC ) and a VLCC. Very little room to maneuver.
Well, let's have a look at the situation after Brexit.We should take a page from trumps Policy, and make (Britain Great again), British flag vessels to Have Brtish Crews.
not for Shipping companies to save money by using our MN Flag.
How much Money do these >British Registered ships> pay for the help to maintain and build warships.?
