Method of attack on tankers remains key evidence against Iran

Introduction – June 19, 2019

New colour photos released by the U.S are unlikely to convince many. They purportedly show Iranians removing an unexploded limpet mine from the Kokuka Courageous. But blurred and out of focus they show little beyond a few indistinct figures aboard a small boat.
It’s even less credible than the ‘evidence’ Colin Powell presented at the UN. that purportedly proved the existence of Iraq’s Weapons of Mass Destruction.
Nonetheless, on the basis of these indistinct photos the Trump administration is trying to make the case for military strikes on Iran. Despite the fact that they prove precisely nothing we are expected to believe that the photos justify going to war.
More telling were comments by Yukon Jack in the readers comments section yesterday:
“It looks to me like the Iranian sailor is unattaching a magnetic mooring device…
“If the device was an explosive device the rescue boat would have been on the other side of the tanker the farthest away from the potential blast area and only one trained expert would be in the boat near it.
“Since the rescue boat is much smaller and lower than the tanker (a) magnetic mooring device is how you hold the vessel near the bigger tanker in surging waters while trapped crewmembers are unloaded.”
To make matters worse the media is treating the photos as entirely credible, as the Guardian does below. This makes the media as complicit as they were when they repeated the lies about Saddam’s WMD without question. Ed.

The sophistication of the attacks on two shipping tankers in the Gulf of Oman last week had already led most independent analysts to conclude Iran was responsible for the high-profile explosions.

But there has been scepticism from some key countries, including Germany and Japan, after the US initially released a grainy black and white video it said showed Iranian forces removing an unexploded mine from one of the two targeted ships. Iran has denied involvement.

The fresh set of colour images released by the US Department of Defense overnight add a little more visual clarity to the diplomatic debate, including an image of an armed speedboat with troops in red life-jackets on board, and life-jacketed personnel by the side of the Japanese vessel that was struck last week.

But the principal evidence used to justify Iranian involvement has been the method employed. The two tankers were mined above the waterline – damaging them, but not sinking them – prompting the conclusion the actions were designed to make a point. There were no fatalities in either case, with both crews rescued

  1. london Conspiracies had a phone in and only one person thought that iran did this every single other person ringing in said yes israel.
    I listened to possible 20 calls damning israel for what it does in the world
    I often wonder why jews hate us all so much

    “I often wonder why jews hate us all so much.”

    They hate the Goyim because the Goyim are cowards. The cattle endure all the injustice, all the bullshit, all the unfair impositions, all the criminality and never fight back. They despise the Goyim because they are ignorant, stupid and gullible.

    The more aware among the Goyim talk and write and hope. Most of them say “we got to stay away from violence because”… bla bla bla… Yet they seem OK with trillion dollar armies, overpaid militarized police, etc… The Goyim have millions of guns but are unwilling to use them on the ones who deserve to have their useless fucking skulls blown to hell. They wait forever. Some are prepared to wait thousands of years for Jesus to come back and save the world…

    The Goyim have an infinite list of excuses to do nothing. They say “judge not lest you be judged” and all sorts of other nonsense. Yet they bow down to judges and those fake authority figures.

    Some say “love your enemies”… just because their pet guru apparently said so. He must have been drunk at the time if he did say that. You can easily imagine that someone who can turn water into wine might get a little foggy in the brain sometimes.


  3. method of attack – c’mon mwm admin what for? qui bono? certainly not iran. stop talking absolute cows pat. iran is if anything consistent in saying it will attack no-one unless attacked. the usa illegally withdrew from the jcpoa and placed increased sanctions on that country. why because iran will not bend to usa’s hegenism. so who benefits? yes let me spell it out a country that is not a spitting distance from iran with dolphin class subs and popeye missiles. let the scales fall froom your eyes.

  4. Update on commercial diving and naval magnetic mooring gadgets:

    “Magnets for fastening and anchor points

    With a holding force ranging from 90kg to 2,000kg, Miko magnets fulfil a variety of functions below or above water offshore. With over 17,000 sold worldwide, Miko magnets perform tasks ranging -from fastening items such as diving equipment, anchor points and guide wires for divers to securing instrumentation, including acoustic transponders to subsea structures.

    The stronger magnets are used for fastening large objects such as oil booms or other types of heavy diving equipment. They can also be used to create temporary mooring points for lighter vessels, for example, a survey boat, barge or similar, to the ship side or to the rig leg.”

  5. we are getting some very good comments, maybe the numpties have not found us yet
    The jews declared war on Germany in 1933, The Third Reich had spies right though the jewish hire archy, Hitler knew that the jews were wipping up the world to destroy germany

    Winston Churchill was very well paid by the jews, and according to patrick Kinna and author Dennis Wheatley, churchill and Aleister Crowley were using black magic to ruin Hitlers health decision making abilities and popularity.
    This obsession by Churchill with the occult was heavily criticised by leading church members
