    Iran's military 'fires at and seizes US cargo ship'[W:75]

    Iran's military 'fires at and seizes US cargo ship'

    Iran's military 'fires at and seizes US cargo ship' - Home News - UK - The Independent

    Iranian forces have reportedly fired at and seized a US cargo ship with 34 sailors on board, according to Saudi Arabian state TV.

    The vessel has been directed to the Iranian port of Bandar Abbas on the southern coast, Al-Arabiya has reported.
    It remains unclear why or if the ship was captured, and whether the shots injured anyone on-board, as neither US nor Iranian officials have confirmed the allegations. The US Fifth Fleet off the coast of Bahrain had no immediate comment on the report, according to Reuters.
    Iran's semi-official Fars news agency suggested that the ship was trespassing in the Persian Gulf.




    So why would this peaceful nation who only wants nuclear power, not weapons take such aggressive action against us vessels? it seems to me they are being quite openly antagonistic while the apologists look the other way.

    American officials have denied media reports that a US cargo ship had been seized by the Iranian navy.

    The Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya TV network had reported that a US vessel had been seized and taken to an Iranian port.

    An American official told Reuters there were "no indications so far" of any US ship being directed into an Iranian port.

    However, a Pentagon spokesman said a Marshall Islands-flagged ship had been boarded by the Iranian navy.

    Apparently the ship is flying marshal Islands.

    Registered in the Marshall Islands, maybe Bikini is the home port, the ship is owned by the Danish company Maersk

    It takes special ignorance to pretend that nothing in the burning ME is about 0bama's foreign policies.

    Though it is off topic, I feel like I should refute such a claim but only once

    Beleaguered at home, U.S. President Barack Obama remains beloved in many nations abroad. And he is far more popular than his predecessor George W. Bush. But the bloom is definitely off the Obama rose.
    <snip>
    Today, Obama remains largely popular. Half or more of the public in 27 of 43 countries surveyed by the Pew Research Center in 2014 said they had confidence in him to do the right thing in world affairs – his median positive approval rating is 55 percent, similar to the American public’s view of his handling of foreign policy.
    That's it from me - no more Obama stuff in this thread.
