...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.

Rendering assistance in response to a mayday call is what I would expect they will say. It does seem kind of strange that somebody sent out to a tanker that reported a limpet mine attached to the ship would just yank it off and drive away. Of course in that part of the world it might be a common problem to deal with.
Around here the Coast Guard boats deal with the usual maritime problems like sinking boats, boats that have run aground, etc. Maybe removing mines stuck on ships is all in a days work in the Gulf of Oman.
Im just another soldier boy..
We already know what DJT thinks. He’s not going to get us into a disastrous war that will harm the United States, as so many here are desperate to see happen.
Yeah. They released statements saying the North Vietnamese attacked them in the Gulf of Tonkin, too.
How did that turn out?
> Maybe removing mines stuck on ships is all in a days work in the Gulf of Oman.
Maybe they knew it was designed not to explode and were gathering evidence to find out who may have staged this event.
I still think Croatia and Libya were about beachfront property
That's funny. Just a average day in the Gulf. But, did they have their Coast Guard approved floatation's on hand? Flares, whistles, etc..
People would not believe me if I told who my close Dem relative works for, so I will refrain, but let’s just say that the modern day military is not 100 percent on Trump’s side.
And in the same way Reince Priebus was a huge mistake for Trump, so will Bolton. And soon, Trump will regret Mitt Romney’s niece. Or cousin.
“Might even be Brad Pitt.”
Keep going, DOD will be interested in your list of suspects. Brad Pitt.......let’s get a FISA warrant.
Skepticism is always warranted when evidence can be faked and institutions are not trustworthy. We all know that the FBI, CIA, DOJ, Dept. of State, and many other government officials and entities have lied in the past, and many are lying daily. Brennan, Mueller, Schiff, Comey, etc. come to mind.
But you can't blame this video on the MSM. If its fake, then it is a Pentagon fake. Hopefully it isn't, but we have certainly seen fake information provided by the military and the State Department in the past. Benghazi anyone?
I’m sick of loser conservatives who believe every video image stamped US GOVERNMENT - just because.
Again, who provided LBJ with artifacts/evidence for the Gulf of Tonkin?
And who swore up and down at the UN that there were WMDs in Iraq but later admitted it was a farce for Bush’s sake?
Israel Lobbyist suggests False Flag attack to start war with Iran.
Patrick Clawson of the influential neo-con Washington Institute for Near East Studies OPENLY suggests that the US should do this with Iran.
Thank you. My 1st thought. :)
Actually they did. The guys on the supposed Iranian patrol boat had their life jackets on. I would have voted for flak jackets myself, but I suspect if the mine had detonated on their little boat it wouldn't have mattered what they were wearing.
Võ Nguyên Giáp
In 1995, retired Vietnamese Defense Minister, Võ Nguyên Giáp, meeting with former Secretary McNamara, denied that Vietnamese gunboats had attacked American destroyers on August 4, while admitting to the attack on August 2.
Do you contradict Giap?
“If its fake, then it is a Pentagon fake.”
And nobody at the Pentagon would ever rat out the fakers.
Giap confirmed the North Vietnamese attack of Aug 2nd. See above.
I apologize, I replied to the wrong FReeper.
Benghazi, what a farce... I’ll never forget Condi Rice on Fox that week giving Hillary cover by saying “You have so much on your plate as SecState”
Thank you for your reply:
