Burning Tankers, the Strait of Hormuz situation 6/2019


Trump clarified and rebuked that.

He said he asked for a meeting to confirm and not to do anything before that meeting. Then he said in the meeting he rejected it. The 10 minutes story is total BS.

I don't think Trump was ever going to attack, they just wanted to do nothing and try to still send a signal.
Are you saying Trump never said that?

No I said he "clarified and rebuked that" - can you read?
Rebuking himself in the third person?



  • 1. express sharp disapproval or criticism of (someone) because of their behavior or actions:"she had rebuked him for drinking too much"

  • 1. an expression of sharp disapproval or criticism:"he hadn't meant it as a rebuke, but Neil flinched"

Did he say that or is that your bad choice of words?

Key points :
-there was a lot of high rank military officer on the P-8, hence the unusually high number of persons there.
-The drone switched off everything prior of it was shoot down.
-Prior of the decision to shoot it down they checked the USA military movements. If they evaluated it as the USA is in attack mode then the P-8 would be killed as well.
Trump: An Iranian attack on the US will be met with ‘great and overwhelming force’

The U.S. is prepared to wipe out areas of Iran if the country decides to attack ‘anything American,' President Donald Trump threatened Tuesday morning on Twitter.

“Any attack by Iran on anything American will be met with great and overwhelming force,” Trump tweeted. “In some areas, overwhelming will mean obliteration. No more John Kerry & Obama!”

Trump’s remarks come after Iran mocked new sanctions the U.S. imposed Monday against the Islamic Republic’s supreme leader and other top officials. According to Iran, the sanctions closed the door on any diplomacy with the U.S., and President Hassan Rouhani accused the White House of being "afflicted by mental retardation.”

Tensions between the U.S. and Iran are escalating as the two countries exchange barbed words. The U.S. has blamed Iran for attacking two oil tankers near the Gulf of Oman on June 13, which Iran denies.

Iran shot down a U.S. surveillance drone June 20. The U.S. and Iran disagree over whether the drone was over international waters or was violating Iran’s airspace. Although Trump was then poised to launch a military strike against Iran, he claimed he canceled it because of the number of estimated casualties.

Trump withdrew the U.S. from the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Iran’s nuclear deal, in spring 2018 and announced that sanctions against Iran would be reinstated. The Iran nuclear deal imposed limits on Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for relief from economic sanctions.

Iran has since accused the U.S. of waging an “economic war” against Iran.
