    Nothing to see here, folks. The regime is becoming more moderate. Move it along.

    In all seriousness, the Iranian Revolutionary regime is one that has engaged in lawlessness, mendacity and terror. The Western Governments were engaged in self-delusion thinking that their playing a shell game of putting some anodyne Santa Claus-like figure as Rouhani signaled some major institutional shift in policy. It was simply playing Good Cop Bad Cop.

    Its in the small things that the rot starts. Do the wrong thing once, its easier to do it again. Do the individualistic thing once, it is easy to do it again.

    Could be the same one?? Only have confirmation on 1 seized.

    Brits / EU will need to deploy more naval assets to escort tankers.

    Iran oil exports now down from 2018 by a few mil barrels per day

    As Trump's sanctions bite, Iran's oil exports slide further in June - Reuters
    Iran’s June exports are down from about 400,000-500,000 bpd in May as estimated by the industry sources and Refinitiv and a fraction of the more than 2.5 million bpd that Iran shipped in April 2018, the month before President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the nuclear deal.

    Iranian exports have become more opaque since U.S. sanctions returned in November, making it harder to assess volumes.
