Lots of differing accounts from different media sources. Some say the tankers were attacked, a couple say “ torpedoed”.

Bottom line, there was an incident nvolving two large oil tankers, one is on fire.

I suspect we might be in the first stages of a war.

WWI began with “unrestricted submarine warfare”, which is the official reason of what brought the US into the war.

“Taiwan’s energy firm CPC said it had suspicions that Front Altair, which was carrying 75,000 tonnes of naphtha, was hit by an unknown onject.”

Ok. Now I understand. Seems pretty clear what happened.

Retail, at the pump, prices were set to drop to $2.00 or near to that in many states. Something had to be done to prevent that.

It was a frickin’ mine and nobody is responsible? Sounds like ‘something happened to something’ - I guess.

WWI began with “unrestricted submarine warfare” “”

And Vietnam War began with Gulf of Tonkin incident.

Yes, and the Second Gulf War started when American and “The Cousins” (Britain, Australia, Canada and New Zealand) Intelligence services said Saddam had weapons of mass destruction - Five years later and 5,000 dead American and Allied troops it was determined - after tearing the country apart and killing over 100,000 Iraqis - that Saddam didn’t have the nukes after all.

So...fool me once - boo on you....Fool me twice...boo on me.

Another false flag incident? Well we do know the reach of the Deep State is global - and they could really use a Middle Eastern war to distract the public concerning their massive corruption and attempted coup against the Republic.
