      What if they have a real flag?

    • @Nemo Krada Trump using a Gulf of Tonkin like strategy to get us into war is old and tired.

    • @Oh Yeah? You have any proof or plausible evidence, or still embarrassing yourselves like a bunch of hysterical teenage girls?

    • @Nemo Krada History, my friend, history. The U.S. Military Industrial Complex thrives on war, obviously, and the U.S. has fabricated excuses to start wars before. They did in Vietnam with the Gulf of Tonkin incident and they did again in Iraq with the false claims of WMD. Also wars have been used by U.S. Presidents before to bolster their re-election chances, Nixon and Bush Jr. both succeeded with that strategy. Now are you done showing off your ignorance like a teenage boy too busy jerking off to the poster of Trump on his bedroom ceiling to learn a little history?

    Quit trying to sell war, fuckheads

    • On May 20, 2017, U.S. President Donald Trump and Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud signed a series of letters of intent for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to purchase arms from the United States totaling US$110 billion immediately, and $350 billion over 10 years. The Iran–Saudi Arabia proxy conflict, sometimes also referred to as the Iran–Saudi Arabia Cold War, Middle East Cold War or Middle East Conflict, is the ongoing struggle for influence in the Middle East and surrounding regions between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Buying all that weaponry and not use it is like buying a Ferrari and parking it in a storage unit. There will be war.

      @ferniejoke and this is because of the press, how?

      @OhNoNotFrank falsified by the WH minions.
      Japan wants Iranian oil.
      Iran want to sell its oil.
      US doesn’t want anyone buying Iranian oil.
      Japanese tankers get bombed.
      Think about it.

    I am having a hard time believing any of this. That mine could have come from anywhere and the whole thing seems contrived. Especially since the US government doesn’t actually have any proof, also what about other allies in the region the UK and EU has troops why haven’t they provided corroboration. I’m sorry but these accusations seem shady. Why remove the US from the Iran nuclear program and then these accusations start. ??????? So many questions, so many things that don’t make sense,

      “I’m sorry but these accusations seem shady.”

      Dont be sorry, be angry. You have a tRaitor in Chief.

    • I’m having a hard time believing that CNN is really there. Remember their original fake trip at sea video? That was hilarious.
      Fake news covering fake news about fake enemies who are making money by spurring threats of war.z

    • John Patrick dont compare the USA and Russia with Iran and Saudi Arabia, they are currently in a conflict, the US and Russia have armaments for power and control, something that Iran and SA do not have but would like to achieve.

    The U.S. is at it again. Starting propaganda to justify starting a war. Same old song song and the people just keep falling for it. Smh

  7. Im no expert in explosives ……
    How do you find small fragments in the sea and compare them to so called know pictures ?
    Just curious to know because all these details seem to be placed right in the open and for display while military protocol is to not release any information publicly especially if the investigation is still ongoing!
    Seems to me it was done to make it look like Iran and publicly blame them to gain momentum to fuel a war over political reasons and not what there really saying!

    • John Patrick | June 20, 2019 at 8:46 AM | Reply

      Some of the fragments could blow in to the hull and some may have still been stuck to the hull (it was a magnetic limpet mine).

    Over the last few years I have learnt not to trust the word of Americans… They have no credibility any more…
    Edit: I do think the flying of US drones into the Iranian airspace is going too far though… wow America really wants an all out war dont they…whats next drop a bomb or two on Iranian schools and say “oopsy, sorry my bad”

    more propaganda ….i guess iran signs their name on it too…….makes me sick

  10. Can’t tell if this is the Maine or the Lusitania?

  11. Lets just hope Trump will not invade Iran,we don’t need more troops in the middle east

  12. Pompeo, I saw you fire a missile to the Japanese oil tanker!😄

  13. i feel a military attack is on the way, all these are just building up.

    very similar to Iraq war.

    wait and see

    This is not 2003 !!! People can’t be easily fooled , they’re doing the exact same things they did when they wanted a war with Iraq

      We are still in Iraq. How about they get us out of one b4 starting another

      “People can’t be easily fooled ”
      Just look at a tRump rally. Those fools are fooled AND they are treasonous, treacherous and traitorous by nature.

    • US has just too many extra money to spend on other conflicts

    • Machiavelli cites the example of Ferdinand of Aragon, king of Spain, who grew his domain into a world power and conquered Islamic opponents to enlarge his empire, pretending to the world all the while he was doing it for the sake of his religion – his ‘pious cruelty’ – and the greater glory of the church

      @Kolin Mademe how are they treasonous? Who bank rolled the attempted coup with this false Russian bollocks.
      Have you ever in your life seen a president receive so much heat over so little?
      Wake up you Muppet.

  15. What countries would profit most from an America war on Iran? Saudi Arabia and Israel.

    • Russia the United States, and all the reserves held by Venezuela. To name a few more. Oil in the United States needs to be 75.00 a barrel to keep the United States pumping below that price….might as well leave it underground.

    • a. barker. Thank you for your reply and your point of information.

  16. If it’s an active mine , doing it so casually with so many people rescued on board , is just plain impossible.
    If it’s an UNEXPLODED mine , they would be far more careful.

  17. Main suspects:
    1 Saudi Arabia
    2 Israel
    3 USA
    4 Iran

    5 A mix
    “;-)

  18. The CNN war propaganda machine is just getting fired up.

  19. “Strikingly…..tumbleweed……bearing a resemblance to Iranian mines that have already been displayed in Iranian military parades.”

    Come on!!!!!!
