The latest; according to Pentagon news, an Iranian boat REMOVED some mines from these tankers. Now the asshole Trump clan claims now that Iran "PLACED" them, instead of helping to "REMOVE" them, which is an very dangerous task indeed.
1) these "mines" were ABOVE the water line
2) The punctures were more like from an "rocket" than from "mines"
3) Prime Minister Abe from Japan did visit Iran at that time; these tankers were headed to Japan/ S.E. Asia; so kind of stupid to do that, if Iran did it.
4) no torpedo's were used; if these mines were from the Iran forces, then they are not so stupid to mount mines which don't work.
5) The Iranians rescued some crews of those ships; if they were the culprits, why rescue the crews?
It does not get nuttier than that; Pompeo is absolute the biggest dumb pompous asshole there is.
Facts don't lie, but the Trump clan does lie all the time.
The way it looks now, it is even possible the US had these placed via via (Israel?) or that indeed some other terrorist group did it, just to get an "war" started; Pompeo and Bolton would love it. I would not be surprised. Just like under Bush, Iraq had weapons of "mass" destruction; also an big lie. La la Land for sure.
