...twenty-one sailors from the M/T Kokuka Courageous who had abandoned their ship after discovering a probable unexploded limpet mine on their hull...
At 4:10 p.m. local time an IRGC (Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps) Gashti Class patrol boat approached the M/T Kokuka Courageous and was observed and recorded removing the unexploded limpet mine from the M/T Kokuka Courageous (video attached).
The United States has no interest in engaging in a new conflict in the Middle East. However, we will defend our interests.

If you think trump’s navy would doctor that footage...
Go see the link.
Unfortunately, people involved with the military-industrial complex and the “deep state” have told so many lies over the past few decades, especially when it comes to matters that can lead to war, that it is almost impossible to know when to trust them now. Videos can be doctored. Witnesses can be coerced or bought off. It’s a mess of their own making.
As for defeating the swamp, there is only a very small window of opportunity left. They are already heavily working on making it impossible for dissenting voices to earn a living and they are taking the first baby steps toward mass killings. (Still have a bit to get to that point though.)
The US Navy released this statement. And video.
The U.S. knows what Iranain vessels look like and Japan will conduct its own investigation.
Look at the domain where the video is posted. It isn't an MSM narrative, it is the narrative of the US Navy. That's who runs the navy.mil domain. So it may be a BS narrative, or even a fake video, but it is being provided by the US Navy.
So are you sick of "loser conservatives" buying whatever the US Government says is true?
“Never heard of the website.”
Have you heard of the Department of Defense?
Here is the DOD video file name: DOD_106899258

DOD DVIDS Program Manager
Ask him if he is real.
I would think just grabbing a mine that is attached to the side of a ship would be a pretty risky move unless you knew that the mine would not activate. Not an expert in such matters but it seems mighty dangerous.
The unusual swiftness and certainty of the conclusion is also a major red flag.
After a year of investigation they couldn’t even find a motive for the Las Vegas massacre, but in 24 hours they conclusively conclude this investigation.
Stinks to high heaven. Luckily, a check around the ‘net shows that basically nobody believes this story.
Ya, I expect a rebuttal message to be sent.
We may hear about it. We may not.
The Gulf of Oman borders Iran, and the tanker was about 14 miles from the coast of Iran. Any reasonable country would have patrol boats out there. I don't know if it was Iranians or Mexicans doing stuff in the boat.
> So are you sick of “loser conservatives” buying whatever the US Government says is true?
There’s no such thing because “conservative” and “buying whatever the US government says” are mutually exclusive concepts.
Interesting how many embedded neocons here are showing their true colors.
Who provided LBJ with the evidence for Gulf of Tonkin?
I saw it
I am not buying anything neocon Bolton is selling.
Same way I belated am not buying the WMDs in Iraq narrative Bush’s neocons were shoving down our throats.
“I don’t know if it was Iranians or Mexicans doing stuff in the boat.”
So you think Mexicans are a possibility?
I’m sick of Losers who sit on their asses in front of a screen and think they know more than anyone else about what’s going on.
It’s not a MSM video.
Well, I think that I'll wait and see what DJT says, as opposed to basing anything on your "check around the 'net." :)
“... So are you sick of “loser conservatives” buying whatever the US Government says is true?”
Yes, I am sick of loser conservatives buying what the Deep State US Government says is true.
Video is easily manipulated for political purposes.
