    Bolton probably can’t contain his excitement. 😕 Soon, Trump won’t be able to contain Bolton. 😳

      I haven’t heard anything about Russian troops killing us troops ur a bit off point there. A d u could say the same thing about China allowing smuggling from nkorea, but does that mean we should go to war with China too?

      @HUMPTYNUGGET most of jews came from Germany when Hitler was killing them..latter jews from other part also came to Palestine. .
      But u also agreed that it’s not their land..what they are doing to Palestinian is worse than what Hitler did to them..
      I guess ur Australian right..if someone captures all Australian land and throw u to live in tasmania will it be OK.. if they kill ur children as young as 4-5 years and jail them will it be OK..if they ask ur women to open their clothes and check their private part in middle of road will it be OK. .if someone kills young boys will it be OK. .if all young man are on crutches will it be OK. .
      Still ur opinion will be same..
      Australia took part in all the war of America like Libya syria Iraq afghanistan Yemen Palestine Pakistan Somalia Congo Nigeria Serbia Lebanon etc etc..
      Can u tell what had these countries done to America or Australia?
      What has iran or Venezuela done to America and Australia?

      @Raju Chhetri no i am Scottish ……the Israelis arent gassing millions of Palestinians are they ? Like the Nazis did to the Jews , Gypsies , mentally subnormals , anyone that was not productive to the Reich was subjected to the Nazi’s eugenics programme , the Israelis arent doing that are they ?
      The UK has Similar problems with Ireland and Northern Ireland when the Protestants centuries ago occupied Northern Ireland pushing out the Catholics , there has been trouble there ever since , many people have died ….but the Protestants will never be moved unless you do ethnic cleansing which is out of the question …i saw that happen first hand when i was in Bosnia and Kosovo as a British soldier.
      My point is the Israelis are there now they will never leave now they beat 5 muslim nations in the six day war and won comprehensively not even using thier nukes.
      So you will never be able to take over Israel by force and they aint going to leave voluntarily.
      I agree the situation there is terrible but I’m not particularly pro Israel and have no axe to grind all i am saying is you have to be realistic and accept they are never going to Leave Israel.

      @HUMPTYNUGGET German jews killed maybe million of innocent people in Palestine..we can’t get official fact ever on it..
      they won’t leave until America and Europe support them..day America stops billions of dollar aid and weapons it will be difficult for them to be there..Palestinian are fighting with f35 with bare hands.

      @Ed Dursky there was no social justice when carter was making decisions…………..and the instability of the Middle East is more due to the fact that the Middle East has roughly 50 thousand variations of a single religion and they all hate each other for no reason (as its all the same sky cake just worded slightly differently) it has nothing to do with carter (although American policies during the cold war can be directly linked to at least one terrorist regime as they armed the guys without a second thought to fight the Russians and didnt seem to think that they might use said guns to cause problems afterwards)

    Nah that’s a crazy theory.

      @Lance William Tsuji iran is not any country my friend thats why us hasnt attack yet!!
      Iran got some military power and all these have been planned
      Iran us uk and etc were planning all these tensions its not just random they could just negotiate but they refused to!!

  8. And Iran has released video of their drone flying over the USS boxer for hours .
    US Navy still hasn’t released any pictures of the so called drone they shot down ,no wreckage?
    US and Royal Navy just sitting ducks over there waiting to die for Israel

    So how small was Iranian drone that we can’t see it’s wreck?
    Iranians showed the wreckage of US drone, can US show us what they got…

  11. Thanks CNN.😊 Tanker was in iran’s waters? Iran wants its tanker back from uk and is seeking trade for same?😁

  12. Guy on the right is creepy AF he barely blinks 😂

  13. He’s right, $180 Million tactical asset and a $180 Radio Shack strategic asset, so who’s better off…?

    Like kids in a play ground, everyone needs to give each other’s toys back to the rightful owners and shake hands, don’t listen to the big bully boys with special needs who are the trouble makers who Home life sucks so they take it out on others.!

  14. Uk is expecting such consequence and in fact it is what they want to stir up the tension there; American and British are same the bad actors

  15. Sounds a bit like the old LBJ Tonkin Gulf move to me.

  16. Don’t worry UK will send 007 to rescue

    Britain :we seized an Iranian tanker
    -Mainstream media
    “Good job”!!
    Iran responds by taking a British tanker
    -Mainstream media “Bad sport”

    Ohhh the hypocrisy!!

    • People watching CNN are anti-American. They support Venezuela, Iran, Cuba, Russia and China. They were crazy.

  19. Britain & the US are like cannon fodder for Israel, its sad (or actually funny) to see how the white supremacists ended up becoming disposable condoms for the Zionists.
