Five Iranian boats 'try to seize British oil tanker' – forcing Royal Navy to 'train weapons and warn them to back off'

FIVE Iranian boats reportedly tried to seize a British oil tanker off Iran yesterday - forcing a Royal Navy frigate to train its weapons on them. Iran's elite Revolutionary Guard tried to take control of the vessel as it passed through the Strait of Hormuz - sparking a tense standoff in the Persian Gulf, US officials said. But the HMS Montrose quickly trained its 30mm deck guns on the enemy fleet and warned them off, they added.

The British Heritage tanker was being escorted through the flashpoint region by the Montrose amid feverish tensions between Iran and the West. But the Navy frigate was scrambled into action when the rival boats reportedly approached the oil tanker and demanded it change course into Iranian waters.

According to the anonymous officials, the Montrose came up from the rear of the tanker and aimed its fierce weapons at the Iranians - before issuing a verbal warning to get away. The Royal Navy HMS Montrose, which was also there, pointed it guns at the boats and warned them over radio, at which point they dispersed

One of the officials said: "The Royal Navy HMS Montrose, which was also there, pointed it guns at the boats and warned them over radio, at which point they dispersed." The other added: "It was harassment and an attempt to interfere with the passage."

A US aircraft was flying overhead at the time and recorded footage of the standoff, the officials said.

The Sun Online has contacted the Ministry of Defence for comment.


TANKER SPOOKED DAYS EARLIER

Responding to the reports, US Central Command spokesman Cpt Bill Urban said: "Threats to international freedom of navigation require an international solution. "The world economy depends on the free flow of commerce, and it is incumbent on all nations to protect and preserve this linchpin of global prosperity."

UK defence officials have previously confirmed that the Montrose had been deployed to the region to perform a "maritime security role." The British Heritage ship - operated by BP - earlier made an “abrupt” u-turn and returned to the safety of Saudi Arabia’s coastline on Sunday.

It had been heading to Iraq’s Basrah terminal when satellite trackers showed it mysteriously changing course.


COMMANDO RAID

The attempted capture comes just days after British Royal Marines seized an Iranian crude oil supertanker off Gibraltar. Commandos dramatically detained the Grace 1 tanker over suspicions it was carrying oil to its ally Syria in violation of EU sanctions last week. Iran later issued a chilling threat of retaliation for last Thursday's daring raid.

President Hassan Rouhani warned on Wednesday that the UK will suffer "consequences" for its actions. He said: "I tell the British that they are the initiator of insecurity and you will understand its consequences later."

And Iran's Major General Mohammad Bagheri warned the seizure of the Grace 1 "will not go unanswered".

So it turns out to be Much Ado About Nothing—again. Just another report to stir up the blood lust of those who want a reason to strike military at Iran ( for Bibi of course).
US officials claimed to have captured “video footage” of the incident, though so far this has not been released. British officials have not officially commented on what happened, though in practice it seems that nothing ended up happening, with no shots fired and no ships actually captured.

:-) :-) :-)

I understand now.

You're nothing more than a parrot for Ron Paul. I mean, we always knew you were a fan, but my god, i had no idea that you didn't think for yourself.

That is fucking hilarious. All of your talking points and even the words you choose, that we all that were "BEPisms" are literally from Ron Paul.

That was an incredibly enlightening experience.

You're not a free thinker. You're a Ron Paul shill and it's worse than i ever could've imagined.

wow. :-) i understand now. I wish i woulda watched some Ron Paul content sooner and i would've known. Hilarious.

Entirely possible. But smart enough to stay out of Iraq.

Seriously. Have you experienced recent emotional distress? Did you lose your job or wife leave or something? Do you need to talk to a friend?

Even EU news lying about what happened. Again, omissions of fact and absence of context to paint a false narrative. Not saying the anchor herself is lying because she's probably reading of a script given to her, but she is mistaken. The lies stem from another source which then gets passed down and placed on the news wires. ( CIA does this sort of thing.) Remember there was a report citing two unnamed US officials. That has PompAss and Adolph Bolton's fingerprints all over it—two self-admitted liars just like John Brennan. Deep State right in the Trump WH.

And, for your own sake, stop taking Cochise seriously. His analysis of anything Trump is right up there with Lex's at the top of the complete fail scale.

You didn’t provide anyone their freedom. And Iowa’s brothers farting around in Iraq didn’t do that either.


I wanted them to stay here, get married, have families, and do what I do: take my boys to the park. Bushman and the MIC had other plans for them.

Nobody's boys have to go against their will, so it doesn't really matter what plans Bushman or the MIC have made. You can still hang out in the park together enjoying the luxury of American freedom in your own way, just like I'm sure you contribute to our melting pot culture in your own way.

No doubt, Iowa’s brothers weren’t forced into that. I would never say they were. They did fall for Bushman’s lies tho. (So they bear some complicity)
