Royal Navy sending THIRD warship to the Gulf

AFP and Bryony Jewell for MailOnline – Aug 24, 2019

A third British warship is heading to the Gulf to join the mission to protect shipping amid heightened tensions in the region.

Portsmouth-based HMS Defender, a Type 45 destroyer, is being redirected from its mission to the Pacific.

Britain has already sent HMS Kent to cover for frigate HMS Montrose while it undergoes maintenance in nearby Bahrain.

‘Wherever the red ensign flies around the world, the UK stands by to protect freedom of navigation whenever is it tested,’ said Defence Secretary Ben Wallace.

The Government confirmed earlier this month that the Royal Navy has been tasked to accompany British-flagged ships through the Strait of Hormuz, as part of the International Maritime Security Construct (IMSC).

This deployment will ensure that the UK has the flexibility to continually commit a vessel to the international mission, said the Navy in a statement today.

Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said: ‘The men and women of HMS Defender will contribute to the IMSC alongside international partners.’

Britain outraged Iran by seizing one of its tankers – the Grace 1 – on July 4 on suspicion it was carrying oil to Syria in violation of EU sanctions.

The HMS Montrose then warned off three Iranian gunboats that UK officials said were trying to ‘impede’ the progress of a British supertanker through the Strait of Hormuz in the Gulf on July 11.

Iranian Revolutionary Guards stormed and detained the UK-flagged Stena Impero and its 23 crew as they sailed through the Strait of Hormuz on July 20.

The British government subsequently raised the alert level for ships travelling through Iranian waters to three on a three-point scale, indicating a ‘critical’ threat.

Tensions have been escalating in the region, with US President Donald Trump in June calling off at the last minute an air strike on Iran over its downing of a US spy drone.

The HMS Defender sailed from Portsmouth on August 12, alongside HMS Kent, which was also heading to the Gulf to replace the HMS Duncan.

HMS Defender’s commanding officer Richard Hewitt said his boat would ‘play her part alongside other Royal Navy warships in keeping these essential trade routes secure.’

  1. Churchill sold the UK to the USA in ww 2
    this is why we have US bases here in perpetuity
    John Bolton demanded we take an active part in the war on the people of iran, for the jews
    time we told them all to get stuffed

  2. Oh Yes, It’s The HMS Great Pretender

    (DISASSOCIATED PRESS) – A third RTO pirate ship is migrating to the Persian Gulf and Country Club to join the increasingly large flock of sitting ducks.

    Porksmouth-based HMS Pretender is being redirected from its less than useless mission to who knows where in the Pacific.

    Britain has already sent HMS Sent to replace frigin’ HMS Morose while its crew undergoes psychotherapy in nearby Bahrain.

    ‘Wherever the red ensign flies around the world, the UK stands by to attack freedom of navigation whenever it is ordered to do so by Lord Rot Child in the Citi,’ said Dense Secretary Ben Lawless.

    The Government confirmed earlier this month that the Oil Navy has been tasked to accompany British fagg ships through the Strait of Whoremuz, as part of the International Maritime Security Confabulation (IMSC).

    This deployment will ensure that the UK has the flexibility to continually commit crimes with the other international pirates, the Navy nanny did not say today.

    Offense Secretary Ben Mallace said: ‘The men, women, lesbians, gays, bisexuals, trannies and undefined specimens of HMS Pretender will contribute to the IMSC alongside international mercenaries and gangsters.’

    The Rothschild Terrorist Organization’s Gibraltar branch seized one of Iran’s oil tankers – the Grace 1 – on July 4 under false accusations.

    The HMS Morose is said to have warned off three Iranian gunboats that UK official liars said were trying to ‘impede’ the progress of a British SST (Super Stinky Tanker) through the Strait of Hormuz in the Gulf on July 11.

    Iranian Revolutionary Guards stormed and detained the UK-flagged Stinko Inferio and its 23 crew as they cruised through the Strait of Hormuz on July 20.

    The British fake government subsequently raised the bullshit level another notch.

    The HMS Pretender sailed from Porksmouth on August 12, alongside HMS Sent, which was also heading to the Gulf to replace the HMS Dumcan.

    HMS Offender’s commanding officer Richard Blewitt said his boat would ‘play a part alongside other Oil Navy whoreships in keeping these essential trade routes insecure.’

  4. So is the bryt media going to advise everyone that the tankers that were “rocketed” in the Gulf were done by the FILTH in izraHELL ? You know, the same as they did 7/7 in Londonistan by the “jude” and retired sas ! Why was effingyahu sniffing around Londonistan that day ?? The explosions were from under the carriages, NOT inside, I have seen the pics !!!

  5. Humm ?? With US navy, Brits Navy, French navy, Chinese navy all in the strait of Hormuz
