...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.

No I just remember the papers surfacing ten years ago where all the Senators at the time knew it was a false flag.
Do you believe climate change is real just because government agencies like NASA tell us so?
zero visibility and closing.. ready for war.
Giap said so. Get it? Jeez.
Iranians were caught Jussie Smollett handed.
The US Navy has lots of ships in the Gulf of Oman, much further outside of US waters.
The fact that someone removes a device does not necessarily mean that they placed that device.
It is way too soon to get worked up about what happened. The truth will come out soon.
Remember when North Korea was sinking boats and Sec. of Hate Hillary Clinton said don’t rush to judgment?
This is not the FBI. This is the US Navy.
every time I turn on the "news" it is distorted and reshuffled out of context with bits of fact
Jim Morrison’s dad.
You said is was MSM, just saying it wasn’t.
>So you think Mexicans are a possibility?<
So far, many are blaming everyone BUT Iran.
Here’s an oldie but goodie, to remind us how long we’ve been snowed by fake news in wartime:
CNN reporter pretends to be “live in Saudi Arabia” when he was on US soil with a chromakey backdrop.
The truth is coming out now.
North Korea has no comparison to Iran, they don’t threaten 30% of the world’s oil shipping.
That whole area is really hot right now... and this would really be more gas on the flames. Hold on to your hat if we take action.
Yemen, Syria, Israel, Golan Heights, Gaza, Libya, even to a degree Egypt, it seems all over the place over there.
We need to do what is right for American interests, I’d just be pretty cautious.
Is it possible Iran wants war and is the one provoking it ? Say what ? Lol. Why else be videoed ?
Does this mean we get to make Iran a parking lot now?
After reading all the comments, decided to read the source article and watch the video. Lol. Yeah. They did not know they were being filmed. And they obviously were removing a dude cause it would have implicated them directly. So they want to raise the price of oil short of war ?
Everyone needs to shut up about “War”. There isn’t going to be a war, there is going to be the US pounding Iran upside the head.
They tried this shit back in ‘88 and Reagan greased their ass, the military destroyed or sunk half their Navy in a few hours.
President Trump is not a George W Bush, he is a Ronald Reagan and our capabilities have vastly improved since Reagan, that’s all I’ll say.
“On a large tanker, below the waterline explosions wont start much of a fire because the in-rushing sea water would put it out.
These mines were placed directly outboard of the engines fuel tanks that use the hull as a tank wall.”
SHUT UP, you’re making too much sense!
“BTW, what was an Iranian patrol boat doing out in the Gulf of Oman, outside Iranian waters?”
STOP, clearly it was JOOOZ, pretending to be Iranians, who are our good friends!
