    It is blatant provocation, when you pull out of a deal that was agreed upon by all parties. And then impose sanctions, to stifle a country's economy. That's airly reminiscent of imperial britain

    Please someone explain to me which ‘international law’ allows navies to intercept foreign ships in international waters for allegedly breaching non-UN sanctions?

    If China or Russia announced unilateral sanctions on say Japan, does anyone here think the west would just say ‘fair enough’ for Chinese and Russian warships to intercept commercial shipping in international waters heading to or from Japan?

    It’s a question of where she was then. The course she was designed on is close damn close to Spanish/Gibraltar/EU waters. The seizure was done by British forces out of Gibraltar which has a dispute with Spain. But both are EU. If she entered those waters. Well it’s like the Global Hawk shoot down. Was it in Iranian airspace or close to it?
    I know what some will say... but it’s that kind of dispute now.
